HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT STOVE?

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT STOVE?

Each sauna stove model is available in various power options. Each power level is suitable for a specific room volume. If you choose a stove that doesn’t match the size of your sauna properly, the stove won’t be able to effectively heat the sauna room, and the stove’s lifespan will be significantly reduced.

Choose a stove that corresponds to the room volume: you will consume fewer resources (electricity or firewood), the stove’s service life will be longer, and the sauna ritual will be more enjoyable! Choosing the right sauna stove is a long-term investment.

If you don’t yet know the exact size of your sauna room, follow our guidelines, which will help you choose a suitable and powerful stove for your specific sauna space.

THE CALCULATIONS ARE MADE AS FOLLOWS:

1. Measure your sauna room.

2. Calculate all uninsulated surfaces.

3. Calculate the total volume of the sauna room.

4. Choose a stove with the appropriate power.

1. Measure your sauna room.

Room length x width x ceiling height = room volume (m³)

For example: Sauna room size: 1.5 x 2.0 x 2.1 = 6.3 m³

2. Calculate all uninsulated surfaces.

Every surface that is not insulated or heated, such as tiled/stone walls, glass walls, windows, doors, acts as a loss. If this is not taken into account, the choice of stove power may be incorrect.

Multiply the m² of each uninsulated surface by a coefficient of 1.5.

For example: glass wall (2 m²) + glass door (1.33 m²) + tiled wall behind the stove (1 m²) = 4.33 m²

Uninsulated surfaces in the room: 4.33 x 1.5 = 6.5 m³

3. Calculate the total sauna room volume.

Add together No. 1 (sauna room size) + No. 2 (uninsulated surfaces) = total volume (m³)

For example: 6.3 + 6.5 = 12.8 m³

4. Choose an appropriate power sauna heater.

“4. Choose an appropriate power sauna heater. Each sauna heater model corresponds to a specific room volume (m³) and power (kW). Select a sauna heater that matches the calculated sauna room volume.

If the room calculation is on the boundary, it’s better to choose a more powerful heater.

For a sauna room volume of 12.8 m³, the following models would be suitable:
