Sauna Heaters

Heaters are a critical component of any sauna, providing the heat necessary to create a relaxing and therapeutic environment. From traditional wood-burning heaters to modern electric models, there is a variety of sauna heaters from Tuin to choose from.

Electric Heaters:

Electric sauna heaters are easy to use, requiring only a power source and a thermostat to regulate the temperature. There is no need to store or chop wood, or to deal with the fumes and smoke of a wood-burning heater.

They are easy to install in a variety of sauna spaces. You can mount them to the wall, or let them stand freely. Some models even come with built-in controls for added convenience.

Electric heaters require minimal maintenance, making them a hassle-free option for sauna owners. They don’t require chimney cleaning or ash removal, and their heating elements are easy to replace if needed.

Wood Burning Heaters:

Wood-burning sauna heaters provide an authentic sauna experience, with the smell of burning wood and the sound of crackling flames adding to the ambiance and relaxation of the sauna.

Timber is a renewable resource, making wood-burning sauna heaters an environmentally-friendly option. Additionally, many sauna enthusiasts enjoy the process of collecting and chopping their own wood, adding to the sense of connection with nature.

Wood is generally less expensive than electricity or gas, making wood-burning sauna heaters a cost-effective option over time.

Burning certain types of wood, such as birch or cedar, can release aromatic oils that provide a pleasant and relaxing scent during the sauna session.

Wood-burning sauna heaters can be visually stunning, adding a rustic and natural element to the sauna space.


Sauna Accessory Set

This sauna set includes a thermometer, hygrometer, sandglass, pour over spoon and wooden bucket with watertight interior.

Fill the bucket with water and use the spoon to splash water over sauna stones. This will create steam for an authentic sauna experience. 

By using the hygrometer in a sauna, you can monitor the humidity levels and adjust them as needed to maintain a comfortable and healthy environment. The ideal humidity range for a sauna is typically between 10-20%, but it may vary depending on personal preferences and the type of sauna used.

Sauna Light

This sauna light is supplied with a bulb, bull’s eye and screen. Perfect for adding some warm subtle lighting to the interior of any log cabin sauna.
