There are two basic types of heaters:
Electric heaters are easy to control, particularly with external regulation. They allow having control over the exact temperature, time of switching on or off, or lighting. They can also come with remote control. But they always require a sufficient power supply and a separate circuit breaker.
Wood-burning heaters are more efficient and heat up a sauna faster to a higher temperature, which is especially convenient with outdoor saunas. They give a more intense feeling of heat, plus a beautiful atmosphere with the light from the stove flickering on the sauna walls as a bonus. You have smaller control over the temperature, and always need to have fuelwood ready. They require a bigger safety clearance from the walls and benches.
Electric heaters can be placed anywhere, both indoors and outdoors.
their big advantage is the easy control. You just set the required temperature and time for which the sauna should heat up. There is no need to take care of anything else. The heater controls the temperature automatically so you can enjoy your relaxation without any distractions. When you are finished, you simply turn off the heater and leave.

Electric heaters are supplied in the following versions:
Electric heaters with regulation on the case
The easiest way to a heated sauna. The temperature is controlled using a mechanical thermostat and timer on the heater. On the other hand, this inner thermostat cannot heat up a sauna as quickly and intensively as heaters with external regulation. Still, you can increase the felt temperature by splashing the heater with water.
Electric heaters with external regulation
There are no controls on the heater. It is controlled by external regulation with a sensor, allowing to heat the sauna faster to a temperature of about 100°C. The external regulation can also control lighting or ventilation and provide precise regulation of the temperature and timer. Some controls supplied by us even allow remote control via WiFi.
Electric heaters with evaporators
You can drizzle water over any heater supplied by us and thereby increase the humidity in the sauna. But the steam shock ensures extreme conditions only temporarily. Heaters with evaporators don't require splashing - simply set the required humidity on the external regulation, and the conditions in the sauna will remain stable. It is ideal for BIO, tropical, and aroma saunas!
The best invention since the sliced bread - at least when it comes to a sauna. External sauna control takes care of all critical aspects of sauna sessions: exact temperatures, the time of switching on and off, lighting, and ventilation. You don't need to bend to the hot stove - everything is easily set on the display. You don't even need to go to the sauna to switch on the heater. Thanks to a sensor, the sauna is heated faster and to a higher temperature.
Combined controls can regulate a heater with an evaporator, allowing you to set the required humidity. Some regulations enable remote control via WiFi. The regulation comes with a sensor to monitor the sauna temperature, and a connection cable, providing it features a separate control panel. Moreover, this control can be placed in the sauna so that you can see and instantly change the current and set temperatures.
The unique feeling of heat from wood.
The gentle, pleasant warmth of the sauna followed by a refreshing cold bath. Let your senses relax.
Sauna heated by a wood-burning stove allows you to indulge in the authentic feeling that the Nordic culture has enjoyed for centuries. Sauna heaters by Harvia combine long-term experience and know-how that only the Finns can have.

Wood-burning heaters divide into:
Wood-burning heaters with loading inside the sauna
Making and feeding the fire directly inside the sauna, you can enjoy the light of flames flickering on the sauna walls together with the intensive sauna heat and wood-scent - the essence of Finnish sauna! On the other hand, you must carry every single log to the sauna and sometimes clean the ashpan.
Wood-burning heaters with loading outside the sauna
It is scorching in the sauna, but you feed the fire from outside - a big advantage if you have a sauna frequently. You won't see the flames from the sauna, but the interior will be cleaner. If you feed the fire from the relax room, it will also heat up. The best solution for this situation is the DUO combination - a stove inside the sauna and a fireplace in the relax room. But please note the safety limitations - the part where the stove passes through the wall may not be made of wood.
