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.

Electric heaters

Feel electrified. Nowadays the most popular heater option is an electric one. Electric heaters draw power from the electricity network to heat up the heating elements of the heater. The heating elements are surrounded by heater stones, which will warm up once you’ve turned the heater on. Remember to use an appropriately sized and powered heater for your sauna to reach a temperature that gets the room hot enough! The right temperature is of course up to you, but for wattage recommendations for specific room sizes you can check out our heater product pages.

There are various options available for the controlling of your electric heater. The traditional electric heaters include manual switches for a thermostat and a timer, while newer models can often be connected to separate control units and control panels, from which you can turn on the heater and adjust any specific settings, such as the power of the heater.

With Harvia’s electric heaters you get an easy user experience with versatile possibilities. With modern control units, using electric heaters is even more effortless, and you can even preheat your sauna from afar with the MyHarvia mobile application.

Combi heaters

A heater and some steam make a great team, so why not bring out the most of them with Harvia’s combi heaters?

Combi heaters combine the generous steam of a steam room with the warming heater stones of an electric heater. You can adjust the humidity and the amount of heat provided by the heater to match your personal preference: higher levels of humidity combined with lower heat creates a soft and gentle sauna experience, while higher heat with low humidity leads to a dryer and hotter experience.

With combi models you get the capacities of an electric heater with the additional possibilities of an integrated steamer and dedicated options for the use of herbs and fragrances. Aromatic experiences add a whole new side of the sauna, if you feel like the atmosphere coming from the generous amounts of steam is not enough itself. If versatility is what you seek, we advise to opt for a combi version of one of our popular heaters, such as the Virta.

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.
