The sauna experience is continually adapting to respond to global wellness trends. Harvia’s heater options are designed to enhance the experience of all sauna types and all sauna users.

Wood-burning heaters

At first, there were flames. Wood-burning heaters are the most traditional and arguably the most atmospheric heater choice. With wood-burning heater you insert actual firewood into the fire chamber of the heater, which is then lit up. The flames in the fire chamber will warm up the heater stones, on which you then throw water to enjoy the gentle healing heat coming from the steam.

Harvia’s wood-burning options have come a long way since the first model in the 1950s, but the flame has not died out to this day. Wood-burning heaters are still the choice of many, and with new technologies that allow cleaner burning, such as our GreenFlame models, they are also a more sustainable choice than ever before.

Small & big heaters

David or Goliath? As we know from the classic story, size may not always mean everything. When it comes to heaters, though, the size does play an important role for achieving the best sauna experience.

Not all saunas are built the same, and one especially important aspect you must take note of is the size of the sauna. One of the most common mistakes in choosing a heater is going for an option that is too small for the room. We have made solving this possibly difficult task easy for you, as you can use our convenient Harvia sauna calculator to figure out the right heater for your sauna size.

Home & commercial use

Home is where your sauna is. In sauna, everyone can feel comfortable wrapped by healing heat. In Finland, saunas are a common thing to have in your very own home. However, public saunas are also common and often exist in different environments, such as hotels, spas, or gyms. It is estimated that there are closer to three million saunas in Finland.

In your own home you can adjust your sauna at least on some level depending on your own liking. Knowing the importance of sauna to those who frequent it, it is also crucial for commercial users to make their saunas feel like a second home for the users. With the familiarity provided by Harvia’s heaters, this is an easy task. Harvia’s control units allow you to also adjust your commercial sauna easily to just the right levels for your customers.
