Sauna Heater

The heart of every sauna is the sauna heater.
Tylö sauna heaters are widely renowned and greatly respected for their high quality and distinct features - but not everyone knows all the reasons for this. That's why we'd like to take this opportunity to point out some of the most important benefits of the Tylö design and explain what this means for you. Read on to find out why the hottest range of sauna heaters on the market knocks all the others cold.

Safe to touch.
"Thermosafe" velvety covering ensures a low surface temperature - just 40°C on the front and sides of the heater.

Quickest heat-up time.
Twin side chambers maximize the through-flow of air, minimize heat-up time and economize on running costs. No other sauna heater uses less energy. 

The lowest energy consumption.
Test after test confirms that Tylö is the most energy-efficient sauna heater.

Tylo saunas vs other saunas

The most even bathing temperature.
A divided output is the secret behind the constant bathing temperature and lower energy consumption of a Tylö heater. Divided output means the heaters elements cycle in stages. Other heaters go on/off, on/off, etc. causing a temperature swing. Tylo heaters maintain an overall higher and more consistent temperature.

The finest material quality.
Only Tylö has a solid-cast top, inner casing and stainless steel stone compartment.

The best heating elements.
Tylö is the only sauna manufacturer to produce its own heating elements - the very heart of every heater. High quality here is crucial for a long service life, and Tylö elements are widely regarded as unsurpassed.

Optimum water sprinkling.
A deep generously proportioned stone compartment, and direct contact between the stones and the heating elements ensure perfect water sprinkling with 100% vaporization. 

The right quantity of stones.
Tylö makes sure that the quantity of stones is perfectly matched to the output. Too many stones prolong heating-up times, leading to higher energy consumption and poorer steam generating performance. Tylö heaters are also the only ones on the market that can be used with or without stones.

Built-in humidifier.
This unique Tylö feature further enhances your sauna bathing experiences.

Superior performance.
With a Tylö heater, you can enjoy a pleasant sauna, wet or dry, at whatever temperature you choose from 40-90°C (104-194°F).

Best in the test.
Time and time again Tylö has scored top marks in Finnish sauna tests. Tylö was first awarded the coveted 'Best in Test' accolade in competition with seven Finnish heaters in 1982. A test published in a Finnish magazine (Kuluttaja no. 5, 1995) confirmed that Tylö also has the quickest heating-up time and lowest energy consumption. A SEMKO test in April 1999 confirmed this result and also proved that the steam generating performance of Tylö heaters was unrivaled.

Combi (Soft Sauna)

 

The Tylo Sense Combi is quite simply the most sophisticated sauna heater on the market - the only heater that lets you enjoy traditional or Soft Sauna in one and the same room. The choice is yours. We call it Soft Sauna.

A gentle way to share a pleasurable experience. It is just as much a way of life as it is a technical sensation, and yet it takes up just a few square meters of space in your home. Invite your friends and family, select a therapeutic essential oil, feel the warmth and gentle. Steam engulf you, and enjoy being together. Let Soft Sauna make an impression on your day.

 

What's Your Temperature?

Soft Sauna picks up where traditional saunas leave off. Some people prefer a hot and quick sauna, others like to linger in mild temperatures, enjoying the gentle steam and aromatic fragrances. Test for yourself which temperatures and options are ideal for you and your relaxing moment.

Imagine having a family home spa with the resources of a professional spa where you can relax together, exquisitely engulfed in steam and aromatic scents – and yet also be able to enjoy the relaxing dry heat of a traditional sauna. Choose the sauna cubicle and heater that suits you and the way you want your moment to be. A moment that stretches on and beyond.

 

Double Your Enjoyment

The Combi is like having two saunas in one. In dry mode, it operates like a typical sauna - high heat, low humidity. In "soft sauna" or steam-sauna mode, it is an entirely different sensation. When you splash water on the rocks, you to get that blast of heat. Many of those who enjoy saunas love that sensation. Others find it a bit too intense. When you slow boil  the water, you soften the heat. It takes the edge off. The Combi broadens the appeal of saunas. Those who have historically not like saunas really enjoy it. And old fashioned sauna enthusiast love it even more. You can still splash water on the rocks in steam mode to get that wave of extra heat. The Sense Combi is a true hybrid. Two distinct sauna experiences in one and the same room.

 

Can I Have Steam In a Cedar Room?

The Combi produces steam and the sauna is more humid that a typical sauna, but it does not generate steambath levels of steam. It is not a Turkish bath. You will see steam rising off the heater and you will feel the difference, but the walls do not get wet. And once the Combi has completed its steam cycle, the sauna portion comes on high for 20 minutes to help bake the room dry.

ADVANTAGES TO A SAUNA MATERIAL KITThe Sauna Material Kit provides all the special components necessary to properly and easily build your sauna. The sauna kit provides specific cedar lengths. Builder supply warehouses and lumber yards generally carry only 8' or random lengths which creates a lot of waste. The sauna kit also includes such items as cedar molding and door casing which are not readily available.
At Saunafin, our sauna kits have no seams.  We provide only full-length boards (up to 8')  

COSTWhen using Clear Cedar for your sauna, there is no better value than one of our home sauna kits.  Lumber supply and Big Box Building warehouses, carry either premium priced 8' or random length (6'-20') (if they carry clear cedar at all).  Saunas are generally small rooms.  Most use 4',5',6' and 7'. Major mills set aside these high quality "shorts" as less valuable. Well, not for saunas.  Saunafin orders truckloads of shorts at preferential prices and we pass those savings on to our customers.
When purchasing a Saunafin material kit, the heater and door are included at wholesale price levels, making the kit that much more valuable.
Purchasing a kit vs. buying your sauna "a la carte" will generally save you $400-$800.

SAUNA KIT VERSATILITYSauna kitIt is easy to customize a sauna material kit. If the sauna is part of a larger renovation; such as a finished basement, or addition, it is easy to incorporate the sauna kit into whatever space is available. The sauna can be installed to suit particular settings; for example, the exterior can be drywall and painted to match the outside decor of a bathroom.

NOTHING COULD BE EASIERWith the Saunafin Material Kit, building a sauna is one of the simpler do-it-yourself projects. Our rule of thumb is: If you can erect the stud framing, you will have no problem installing the sauna kit. It is designed specifically for the do-it-yourselfer and renovator. The bench framing, heater guard, and moldings are pre-cut. We even include the galvanized nails. If you have not built a sauna before, you will find the instruction booklet and drawings easy to follow.

DO I HAVE TO USE WESTERN RED CEDAR FOR MY SAUNA?While other materials are occasionally used, Western Red cedar is by far the most popular, most attractive and most durable. Cedar has a mild, pleasant fragrance that many people associate with saunas. Western Red cedar's particular properties allow it to expand and contract. This is important in a sauna where the wood is exposed to extremely high, dry temperatures, interspersed with blasts of humidity when water is splashed on the heater or the walls.

QUALITYOur Clear cedar material kits use only kiln-dried, clear, grade 'A' and better, tongue & groove Western Red cedar. The cedar is thick enough to ensure maximum strength & durability and finished on two sides to provide for the best overall finish. Our most popular material kits use 2 x 4 Clear cedar for benches and bench framing (unlike most others who use 1 x 4).

HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO BUILD THE SAUNA?The installation time will vary somewhat with the size of the sauna. On average, the sauna kits are installed in 14 - 20 hours. With the specified lengths, pre-cut moldings and pre-hung door, you will save at least 4 - 8 hours on your installation time.
