Definition of Electric Heater

It’s a device that converts electric current to heat.

Once the electric current passes through the resistors, they heat up and the heat is passed to the surrounding environment.

When used in a sauna it warms up the sauna environment in about 20 minutes.

The sauna electric heater is usually made of stainless steel and fitted with sauna stones to provide a traditional sauna experience.

Some electric heaters have in-built controls while others require an external digital sauna control that can be mounted on the wall outside the sauna.

It’s very important to remember that electric heaters are not a one-size-fits-all solution. Different electric heater sizes can warm up different sauna sizes and have different rock capacities.

If you get a small electric heater for a huge sauna size, then it won’t heat the sauna optimally.

Moreover, electric heaters of a similar wattage can heat different sauna sizes depending on the brand.
