We ship factory direct all over the world.  Your options are residential with lift-gate service to the end of your driveway or to a commercial location that has either a loading dock or forklift.  The commercial route normally saves $100+.  For residential delivery, you need to have room for a 53-foot semi-tractor trailer to have easy access.

Frequently Asked Questions-

Is it costly to operate?

No, the floor and wall mount models are 6,000 Watts, so you multiply 6x the rate to give you the cost per hour. If it costs you 5 cents per kilowatt, it would be 6×5 cents or 30 cents per hour. (Not Very Expensive)

Do you need a rail around the heater?

No, they have insulated and double airflow hoods to keep them relatively cool on the outside, a 6″ clearance on the floor model, and a 1″ clearance on the wall mount.

What size room is suited for the wall mount?

If insulated correctly, 50 square feet or up to a 7 x 7 x 7 room.

What size room is suited for the floor model?

If insulated correctly, 65 square feet or up to a 8 x 8 x 7 room.

Does it have a remote timer?

Yes, if ordered, an optional 1-hour timer can be located outside of the sauna room.

Does my Kuuma stove come with rocks?

No, but we recommend granite or quartz, which are often found locally at lakes and streams.  Many retail landscaping businesses often sell them as well.  We recommend golf ball size with a slight variation.  If you pick your own, please wash with warm water and soap before installation. 

Sauna Building Tips-

Being in the sauna business, we often get many questions on how to build a sauna.

First Recommendation-

Spend a lot of time on Saunatimes.com. He has done more research than anyone we know, and you can find nearly any information needed. He also has a great ebook for $25 that has helped hundreds of people build a kickass sauna!

General Recommendations

  • People typically make the top bench too wide.  We recommend 20-21″.  More than that is uncomfortable to sit on.  
  • The second bench is primarily to rest your feet or for sitting on. Again, please don’t install it too low.  If it’s too low, it tends to cut off circulation in the legs for shorter people.  It should be approximately 12″ below the top bench.
  • An 8′ ceiling to avoid needing a ceiling heat shield (ugly).  If your ceiling is less than 7.5.’ 
  • 1 or 2 steps to get on the second bench.  They should be fixed and not move.
  • Attach a handrail to the wall next to the steps to assist with safety when getting on or off the benches.
Daryl,
I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciate the great workmanship put into your sauna stoves. We are just opening up our cabin for the season and have our sauna heating up as I write you this note. The heater gets used non-stop over the summer and we invite our neighbors to use it as well. Thanks again for a great product.
Allen & Patty Dahl
Dear Mr. Lamppa,
You have not solicited a testimonial for your Kuuma all electric sauna heater, but I feel that when a testimonial is deserved it should be given. The workmanship and functioning of the stove is impeccable. When I went back to the university after retirement I did a study on quality control. Your stove meets all the requirements of the high quality standard that the customer deserves. The installation was easy with no hassle and the operation is as simple as any can be. Your cool wall design is a real plus. Keep up the excellent quality.
Sincerely,
W Mattonen
Independence, MO
