For an energy efficient residential sauna you need to start with a high quality heater stove that is properly rated for the size of your sauna room. In addition to reaching every spot in the sauna, you’ll want your sauna to heat up to temperature as fast as possible - and the heat to stay constant until you are finished.
You’ll find commercial and residential heaters on the market, a lot of them in fact, but you should take a look at Saunacore sauna heaters for outstanding quality and price.
