Poêles à Bois

Nothing quite captures the essence of the quintessential sauna experience like a sauna wood stove heater. Made with the highest quality materials and optimal heat distribution design, these wood-burning sauna stoves bring a touch of tradition and authenticity to your relaxing sauna sessions.

Why Use a Wood-Burning Heater for Your Sauna?

In contrast to the modern conveniences offered by an electric WiFi sauna heater, a wood-burning heater provides a traditional sauna experience. There's an unmistakable traditional Finnish ambience created by the gentle aroma of burning wood and quaint chimney design, transporting you away from the bustle of modern living. Aside from the traditional heating method and the classic design, wood-burning stove sauna heaters offer unrivalled control over temperature fluctuations, allowing you to achieve your desired temperature level.

Environmental Benefits of Wood-Burning Heaters

Heating using responsibly sourced firewood reduces reliance on non-renewable energy sources. Furthermore, by sourcing firewood locally, we reduce the carbon footprint associated with transporting non-renewable fuels over long distances.

The Authentic Sauna Experience with Wood Heaters

Relieve stress, lower blood pressure, and soothe muscle aches, immersing yourself in comforting soft heat and unparalleled relaxation. Whether you're unwinding after a long day or socializing with friends, turn each session into an enjoyable sauna experience and a rejuvenating ritual that nourishes both body and soul.

Which is Better Wood or Electric Sauna?

The type of sauna heater you choose ultimately depends on personal preference. For authenticity, a traditional wood sauna heater is likely the superior choice. However, electric sauna heaters may be more suitable for those seeking rapid heat-up times. Explore both options by browsing the beautiful designs in our Humm sauna heater collection.

Which Wood is Best for Sauna?

While you can choose from a variety of woods to heat your sauna, not all woods materials are created equal. Softwoods like cedar or pine ignite quickly, while hardwoods like oak or cherry maintain a steady, enduring burn. Avoid sap-filled or heavy wood as they can reduce the stove’s longevity.

How Long Does It Take to Heat Up a Wood Burning Sauna?

The question of how long it takes to achieve the desired temperature and quality of heat using a sauna wood stove depends on various factors. This includes the cubic feet of the sauna room and the type of wood. Generally, it can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour to reach the desired temperature. Allow ample time for anticipation to build before you step into your personal indoor or outdoor sauna.

Maintenance and Safety Tips for Wood Sauna Heaters

Whether you have a barrel sauna or a traditional outdoor model, you’ll need to keep your wood sauna stove in optimal condition to ensure excellent heat output. With regular maintenance, you’ll enjoy all the benefits of a Finnish sauna experience for years to come.

Regular Maintenance Practices for Longevity

Whether for the chimney or the water tank, regular maintenance is essential for maintaining an exceptional sauna stove. After each use, inspect your sauna wood stove for any signs of damage. Remove any dust and debris from the stones to ensure a durable sauna stove. Arrange stones in a wood stove from large at the bottom to small on top for consistent heat retention and steam production.

Safety Precautions for Wood Sauna Heaters

Always operate following manufacturer guidelines and using heat-resistant materials for flooring and walls. Never leave the sauna unattended while the heater is in use, and always have a fire extinguisher and first aid kit on hand as a precaution.
