propane sauna heaterby Admin

Message: Hello, I am building a large outdoor sauna room at our lake house and am wondering if there is such thing as a propane sauna heater.  I want something with a good heat up time and electricity in our neck of the woods is too expensive.   Please let me know my options. Burt

Burt, there are some propane sauna heaters but from what I have seen these are generally reserved for commercial facilities and are costly.   Have you considered a wood fired hot tub heater?  These can be equally as powerful and have a quick heat up time.  A wood fired sauna heater such as the one listed on this site one can heat up to 800 square feet very quickly.  They also come with a large rock storage capacity so that you have good retained heat when adding water to the rocks to create steam.

Dan I have seen the wood fired heaters and I think they would do the same job as a propane sauna heater, however we live in a dry climate and we have wood bans often that was why we thought about a gas sauna heater instead.   I have one more question.  The seat design we have is two levels.  Can you recommend a good seat width for both the top and bottom sauna seats?

Burt this is a good question.  Generally seats are anywhere from 18" -24" with the top sauna seat height usually being larger than the bottom sauna seat.   Dan
