Harvia 6kW Sauna Heater

6kW might be the most common sauna heater size in the world. And no wonder, since 6kW sauna heaters are suitable for 175 to 300 cubic feet saunas. These are usually 3-4 person saunas, which is the most common home sauna size in the world.

When you’re choosing the perfect model from this collection, there’s few key questions you should consider. 

First, would you like to have a free-standing or wall-mounted sauna heater? Free standing sauna heater gives you more options, since you can place it anywhere in the sauna. On the other hand, a wall-mounted model takes up less space from the sauna and is easier to clean.

Next you should consider whether you would like to have an external control panel, or if you would like to control the sauna from the site of the heater itself. While external control panels allow you to control the sauna environment more precisely, from a better position outside of the sauna room and even use an app on your smartphone to turn on the sauna, they’re quite a lot more expensive compared to just having traditional knobs on the bottom of the heater itself.

Third thing to consider is the rock capacity. Larger rock capacity gives you more options when it comes to throwing the water onto the stones. When you throw water on top, you get more mild even steam, and when you throw water to the site of the heater, the steam is sharper. Sauna heaters with small rock capacity, on the other hand, only give out sharp steam if heated correctly, but are usually more sturdy and better for commercial applications where sauna is used daily.

When it comes to sizing, it’s always good to take a bigger sauna heater than the absolute minimum you need. The heater doesn’t have to work so hard, it can reach higher temperatures and the sauna heats up faster when the heater is a bit bigger. If your sauna is closer to 300 cubic feet, you might as well go for 9kw category to look for your heater.
