Wood fired sauna heater

Wood fired sauna stove with protective shield and floor bedding

If you have space and are looking for the best sauna experience then wood fired sauna is for you. So what is involved in wood fired sauna stove installation?

Well, since wood fired heater does not have thermostat, you can imagine that the stove gets very hot during sauna session and that’s why it requires more space around it not to set an entire structure on fire. To have a general idea on the space required in a sauna room with wooden walls, please look at the diagram below:

As you can see minimum distance is 500mm around the stove. And what if you would like to have wood burning sauna but do not want to built huge sauna for it? We at Ukko Saunas have a solution to that problem – we can supply specially designed protective shield for your sauna stove:

As you can see wood fired sauna stove installation involves much more and on top of that you have to allow extra budget for certified plumber to mount all the pipes for you. But considering that power cost is rising almost every quarter, your return on initial money investment will be well paid up within a year or two (depending how often you use your sauna).
