Correct Placement of Sauna Rocks into Heaters

 

Correct Loading of Sauna Rocks into the Rock Container is very Important

a. Correct Loading of Rocks All Sauna Heaters
b. Loading Rocks Sauna Heaters with a Rock Tray above the Heater Elements
c. Loading Rocks Sauna Heaters with Deep Rock design rocks go between elements
d. Inlet Air Vent Highly Recommended behind the Bottom of the Heater

 

A. Correct Loading of Rocks - All Sauna Heaters

1. Rocks should be washed first to remove any debris
2. Never use field rocks or round river rocks. They are not suitable as they will need to be replaced every other year. They are not durable enough.

 

B. Sauna Heaters - with a Rock Tray above the Heater Elements

1. Most sauna heaters have a rock tray located above the elements to hold 16# to 30# of rocks.
2. Place the sauna rocks in the rock tray leaving ample air spaces for air flow. This will allow the sauna heater to operate at maximum efficiency and promote long operating life.
3. If the heater is not a "Deep Rock" design, do not attempt to place the rocks inside the heater.

 


C. Sauna Heaters - Deep Rock Design Rocks are placed between the Elements

1. Many popular sauna heater designs have the sauna rocks placed among the elements.
2. Place the rocks between the elements leaving ample air spaces for air flow. This will allow the sauna heater to operate at maximum efficiency and provide long operating life. If the air flow is weak, the warm-up time is increased as too much of the heat stays trapped inside the heater. The lifespan of the elements will be shortened as the elements operate best in a less-hot environment. The high-limit temperature switch on the heater will occasionally trip under this condition.

3. CAUTION CAUTION CAUTION: If the rocks are placed too tightly, the air flow will be impaired and the heater will not operate efficiently. Eventually, one or more of the elements will simply melt from the excessive heat. This will not be covered under manufacturer's warranty.

 

D. Inlet Air Vent Behind the lowest part of the Sauna Heater - Very Important

1. An inlet air vent is highly recommended to be located behind the heater close to the floor. It will allow new air to come in to keep the heater operating more efficiently at a cooler temperature.

The injection of new air is very important to maintain a high level of oxygen in the sauna room for the comfort of the bathers.
