Choosing the right sauna heater can be a confusing business. First, you have to think about how much heat you need to produce to get your sauna up to temperature, consider how the heater will fit into the space available, and pick a heater that compliments the interior design of your sauna.

Aqualine are now able to offer a huge range of ‘off the shelf’ modular steam rooms from Finland’s finest sauna and steam experts Harvia. These steam rooms come in various shapes and sizes and are pre-cut ready to be easily installed. Each steam room in the Harvia modular Steam Room range is made from 60mm Extruded Polystyrene boards (XPS). These boards are not only waterproof themselves but have a polymer concrete layer on each side for added strength and durability.

Even though they’re both basically hot baths, a sauna uses dry heat and a steam room uses moist heat. Saunas have very low humidity, which means they can be much hotter than steam rooms. They’re usually between 80°C and 100°C, which is perfectly safe because they use dry heat.
