The sauna elements transfer heat to the sauna coals which in turn act like hundreds of mini storage heaters which will continue to heat the sauna after the heater elements have reached the set point to shut down. This will help to maintain the sauna temperature for longer before the sauna heater needs to switch on again. With the larger sauna heaters the stones will store the heat until the next day following the site's switch off procedure. The heavier the weight of stones the heater can accommodate the more economical the heater will be to run. More stones also mean your clients can dose water more regularly and without fear of overdosing. As well as increasing temperature, a humid atmosphere in a sauna also serves to condition the timber and prevents it becoming bone dry and scorched. Many commercial operators choose to remove dosing buckets from their saunas to stop the users from adding water to the sauna stones. This is nor recommended as this will drastically reduce the lifespan of your sauna.
The high quality of the sauna elements in a sauna heater is paramount. Sven sauna elements are compressed in the same fashion as an old-style electric cooker hob. They can withstand endless water shocks and, being made of stainless steel, they are completely corrosion resistant.
A commercial sauna heater works hard, usually in excess of 16 hours a day. It is important that the elements are easily accessible which reduces maintenance costs by ensuring that an engineer’s time on site during Programmed Preventative Maintenance is kept to a minimum. The Sven range of commercial sauna heaters are designed for ease of maintenance and internal accessibility. The elements are never arranged one above the other, in particular with our range of Underbench Sauna Heaters.
When arranged one above the other the top elements are prone to failing prematurely.
