The question is, how much energy does a sauna use?
How much power does a Traditional Sauna use?
Traditional saunas vary greatly with variable factors such as size of the sauna cabin, temperature of the outer environment, and materials such as glass doors. These are all considerations when choosing the kW of the heater. A smaller cabin size will require 2.3 kW – 6kW, with larger models and designs needing a much higher output of typically 7 kW – 11 kW, or in a professional, commercial use environment as high as 33 kW.
How much power does an Infrared Sauna use?
Infrared sauna cabins are a Plug & Play 13AMP product which means it is perfect for home use and requires less energy to run. The kW requirement to heat an infrared sauna cabin ranges from 1.4 kW to 2.8 kW dependant on

Now, perhaps more so than any other time in our recent past, the global community views health as the ultimate wealth. As the pandemic takes hold, we understand now more acutely than ever before how important it is to protect and maximise our health. While there is a myriad of ways to increase the body’s ability to protect itself from illness, this article will focus on the natural way that raised body temperature is the automatic response of the human species, and other vertebrates, to fight viral and bacterial infections, and quite literally boost the immune system. This blog will also attempt to examine the similarities between naturally induced fever, and artificially raising body temperature through routine sauna use.
The healing power of artificially induced fever has been well documented throughout human history. In ancient Egypt, Greece, the Roman and Persian Empires, as well as the first half of the 19th century, fever therapy was utilised for its healing effects. Fever t

A year after publishing a 20-year study that linked regular sauna use to longer life and improved cardiovascular health, the University of Eastern Finland have now published a new piece of research from the same sample group of Finnish men who took part in the Kuopio Ischaemic Heart Disease Study (KIHD). This latest research is now associating regular sauna bathers with a 66% lower risk of dementia.
Like the previous study, this latest set of results also took two decades to produce as KIHD researchers monitored the sauna habits of over 2300 men of middle age. The study assigned the participants into three categories, grouping them by high, average and below average saunas usage by Finnish standards. Men who visited a sauna between four and seven times per week were found to be two-thirds less likely

Regular users of Traditional Finnish Saunas will know that it can take a lot of energy and time to get your sauna up to temperature.
Enter the all new Harvia Forte, a heat storing insulated sauna heater which can heat a sauna room up to full temperature in just a few minutes flat!
Forte sauna heaters don't work like any other sauna heater, they run at a comparatively low power output and store the heat ready for you to lift the lid and release the warmth stored inside.
If you use your sauna regularly, it is more energy efficient to leave this heater running than it is to heat it up a regular heater from scratch, just like a hot tub which runs quietly in the background waiting for somebody to take a dip!
This revolutionary sauna heater is perfect for a family sauna which needs to be ready to go at a moments notice or for a light commercial sauna such as a holiday let, gym or hotel where users expect the sauna to be ready to use, but bathers only visit it

This month the BBC’s award-winning documentary maker and science journalist, Dr. Mike Mosley, took part in an experiment to test the benefits of heat therapy versus exercise. The experiment was prompted by a 2015 medical study in Finland which showed that regular sauna usage can not only improve your cardiovascular health but also reduce the risk of associated cardiovascular diseases and even extend your overall lifespan. Mike put together a group of volunteers to test out the theory for the 2016 Summer special of ‘Trust me I’m a Doctor’ on BBC2.
The programme found that the body’s energy expenditure increase

We've been doing some belated spring cleaning here at Aqualine and we've found a few saunas hiding at the back of the warehouse.
Some of these saunas are pre-loved and some of them have some minor damage to the packaging but we're sure they are all fundamentally sound.
We carry spare parts for our whole range so if any issues are identified by the buyer, we can quickly dispatch spare parts with no additional charge.
So why not take a look at our new Aqualine clearance page and see if we have something for you!
