Rapid Heating

What kind of sauna heater is the fastest and most efficient at heating a sauna, a wood-burning heater, or an electric heater? The answer is neither! The truth is that you will need a gas sauna heater for the quickest heating.

Regular sauna users know that it can take up to an hour for their sauna to reach top temperatures. Fortunately, gas sauna heaters are a remedy for this issue.

Energy-Efficient and Cost-Effective

Gas sauna heaters utilize either liquid propane or natural gas as their energy source. As a result, they can be a much more environmentally friendly option than wood-burning heaters. They also won’t affect your electricity usage like an electric heater does, making them more cost-effective.

Naturally, the heat generated from a gas sauna heater is much more “soft” than the targeted heat of an infrared sauna or the enveloping warmth of a wood-burning stove. Clearly, a gas sauna heater was created as a middle-ground option for those with issues with other alternatives.

Precise Temperature Control

Despite its rustic look, a gas sauna heater can be incredibly precise when it comes to temperature control. You can manually adjust the amount of gas used to either strengthen or weaken the flame and subsequent heat of this heater. 

With more traditional options, you’ll spend most of your time trying to get the temperature right. It is hard to relax in that kind of environment.

Little Maintenance Required

One of the best features of a gas sauna heater is the negligible maintenance required to keep it operational. You won’t need much more than a regular cleaning of its combustion chamber to keep it working.
