Sauna Heater Wiring Sizes

Sizing the Sauna Heater

Sizing the sauna heater to match the sauna is important to keep the warm-up time to 20 to 25 minutes
The average home sauna used 2 or 3 times per week will cost about 60 cents per session to operate!

Using your sauna every week will cost you 60 to 70 cents per session or $.60 to $1.80 per week!
  • It costs less to use your sauna than it does to operate your clothes dryer per month.
  • All homes in North America (U.S. and Canada) have a 240 volt electrical service - same as your stove!
  • Most sauna heaters are 240 volt for more efficient operating and easier wiring.
  • 110 Volt Sauna Heaters are available only in 2 Kw for small sauna rooms
