      Sauna Heaters

      Exceptional Craftsmanship. Freakishly Hot.

      Why Hotass Saunas?

      Really, Really Hot

      Hotass Saunas are expertly built to provide optimal airflow, maximum heat storage, and rapid heat-up times.

      Our sauna heaters filter out any harsh heat by putting sauna rocks in direct contact with the heating elements. This unique engineering creates the perfect sauna climate— a consistently pleasant heat and a therapeutic warmth.

      Made in Finland

      Our sauna heaters are designed, engineered, and made in Finland, the home of sauna.

      Finland’s rich history of sauna bathing pre-dates written history (by a lot), so it’s in our DNA at Hotass. Our heaters include professional-grade stainless-steel construction and heating elements, and other exclusive features to ensure the most authentic Finnish sauna experience.

      Stainless-Steel Construction

      Hotass Saunas are crafted of stainless-steel throughout for long-lasting beauty, strength, and durability. Our heaters feature triple-wall structures which maintain cooler surface temperatures and provide greater safety.

      These deluxe stainless-steel components— interior, exterior, and heating elements— are naturally corrosion-resistant and promise years of exceptional performance.

      Industrial-Quality Heating Elements

      Hotass Saunas are equipped with industrial-strength, stainless-steel heating elements. Designed for high performance, our heating elements heat up quickly and efficiently.

      Testing Sauna Heater
      1. After sauna heater has been properly wired, according to appropriate wiring diagram and local codes, turn sauna breaker on in the main breaker panel. (Note! Electrician must label “sauna” breaker.)
      2. Turn thermostatic (heat) control to “on” position. The indicator light will come on to show that the sauna is heating. Set timer to 10 or 15 minutes.
      3. Within 5-minutes, you should be able to feel heat from heater elements when holding your hand over heater.
      4. If sauna does not heat, refer to troubleshooting information.
      5. It is normal for smoke to appear during the first heating, as protective element coating needs to burn off. Turn sauna on for 1-hour before using the first time, to eliminate smoking.
      TroubleshootingA. If sauna does not operate after initial installation and wiring:
      1. Check breaker to be sure that it is on. Also, breaker should be correct size.
      2. Check circuit breaker in contactor to be sure that it has not been shorted out.
      3. Be sure that thermos
      B. If sauna does not operate after initial installation and wiring:
      1. Check breaker to make sure it is on.
      2. Check high limit reset button in heater (reset is under the heater) to see if it has been released.
      3. Call your electrician or service person for further help.
      NOTE! A ground fault interrupter (GFI) should not be installed in and does not belong in a sauna. If used, the breaker will trip, and damage could result.

      C. If sauna heater operates, but sauna room does not come up to sauna temperature (160-185°F, (70-85°C)) normal temperature:
      1. You must allow at least 30-minutes for Sauna heat-up time.
      2. Is sauna thermometer located 6” from ceiling, and is it above or close to sauna heater? (This is proper location for sauna temperature reading.) Thermometer readings vary with room heights and location. For example, 180°F (82°C) above sauna heater = 165°F (74°C) on opposite wall = 140°F (60°C) on upper bench level = 120°F (49°C) on lower bench level = 100°F (38°C) at floor level.
      3. Check for proper wire size, amp size, and proper wiring (according to diagrams and information) also necessary copper wiring.
      4. Check for placement of stones to make sure they are loosely spaced around elements, to ensure good air flow. Stones packed too tightly will restrict air flow and reduce heating capacity.
      5. Check for heat loss (around or under door or around ceiling light).
      6. Is room properly insulated.
      7. Is ceiling higher than 7’?
      8. After checking all the above, remove rocks and check heater elements for holes or burned areas. (Only if heater has been in use for some time.)
      Caution! Electrician or Service Person!
      1. Before servicing heater, control, or contactor, turn power off at breaker!
      2. Open junction box to make sure wires are tightly secured with no loose connections. Heater wire and all connecting wires should be copper.
      3. Check for burned spots or short in wiring of timer or thermostat.

      Warranty on parts is void if installer/electrician fails to follow necessary wiring information provided or fails to follow code for proper wire size, amperage, etc.

      High Limit Control

      Note! Only persons authorized to carry out electrical installations can reset the high limit control!

      Each heater is equipped with a high limit control which is a safety device. If an abnormal heating condition should occur, the heater will automatically shut off, and it will not come on again until it cools.

      To reset the high limit, locate the reset button at the bottom front of heater and push upward until contactor kicks in. Be sure that a GFI has not been installed.

      Receptacles OR PLUGS are not allowed in a sauna room.

      Click to see: Maintenance Instruction
      1. Use only clean water on sauna stones. Do not use spa or pool water as it will destroy your heater.
      2. Clean water should always be used in sauna buckets and water should be dumped out after every use. Scour buckets and dipper occasionally when film collects from usage. Use plastic bucket liner in bucket to prevent water leakage.
      3. Scrub benches with a soft brush, using soap and water or a mild disinfectant, when needed - about once a week in commercial saunas, or depending on sauna usage. For sanitation, each bather should sit or lie on a towel (this will prolong bench life).
      4. Remove possible removable flooring and wash waterproof floor with disinfectant (e.g. Pine Sol) about once a week or as often as needed. Hose off removable flooring to clean.
      5. To maintain beautiful appearances of sauna heater, remove water stains by wiping with a damp cloth occasionally.
      6. Sauna heaters require no special maintenance when properly installed by a qualified electrical contractor. After 5-years of usage, the rocks may need replacing if they have crumbled or powdered.
      7. We strongly recommend a floor that can be easily cleaned (concrete, ceramic tile, or a poured type of flooring). When this is provided, the sauna can be easily cleaned and kept in a sanitary condition with little effort. A carpet is NOT recommended for a sauna! A carpet becomes a perfect breeding ground for bacteria in the moist conditions of a sauna; and a carpet promotes the spread of foot diseases such as athlete’s foot.
      8. In new construction, a floor drain should also be provided, especially in commercial saunas for sanitary cleaning and maintenance.
      9. Seal wood around glass in door -inside and outside - with Thompson’s Water Seal to prevent warpage.
      10. When sauna wood becomes stained from perspiration, the wood may be lightly sanded with fine sandpaper to restore beautiful appearance. We do not recommend stains or sealers as toxic vapors may appear when heated.
      11. The sauna room will heat faster if the higher vent is kept in a closed position when heating. The lower vent may always be kept in an open position.
      12. Required warning signs should be posted according to the instructions.

      Owner of the sauna heater must make sure that the sauna heater is turned off correctly every time after bathing.

      Owner of the sauna must obey these maintenance instructions!
