AIR 5 Sauna Heater

Air Series, 4.8kW Sauna Heater w/Climate Equalizer

Saunum’s patented air blending system draws heat and steam from near the ceiling, mixes it with cooler, more oxygenated air near the floor, then directs more comfortable, breathable steam throughout the room. This equalizes room temperature by more than 60% for a significantly better sauna experience. You’ll enjoy longer, more satisfying sauna sessions with more intense sweating.

All sauna bathers have experienced the same issue – extreme variance in temperature and oxygen from the ceiling to the floor. The temperature at the ceiling can often exceed 200°F, while at the floor it will be under 100°F, causing your feet to feel uncomfortably cool and your head to be too hot. The temperature and oxygen level should be more consistent throughout.

This revolutionary sauna heater includes an ingenious climate equalizing system that more evenly balances the temperature and oxygen levels throughout your sauna for softer, more breathable air.

Saunum is all about the air!

  • The AIR we heat
  • The AIR we feel
  • The AIR we breathe

Enrich the air with Himalayan salt ions

The ions released from the patented Himalayan salt feature are propelled into the sauna to maximize their health benefits. Salt aerosol has long been used for its benefits as a decongestant, inflammation reduction, and possesses anti-microbial properties.

Add another dimension to your sauna with aromatherapy

Breathe deep, relax, let the room fill with heat and steam, and clear away your tension with the invigorating and awakening scents of Saunum’s available aromatherapy option.

Experience 6 distinct styles of sauna bathing

Saunum lets you customize your bathing experience by adjusting airflow, temperature, and steam to suit your exact preferences.

  • Air Mixing Technology – Saunum patented air blending system mixes cold oxygen-rich air from the floor with hot oxygen-poor air off the ceiling to solve the discomfort so many associate with sauna. Whether you like it extremely hot, or just warm, Saunum delivers both in a way that heat and oxygen are felt head to toe.
  • European Design – With an elegant black steel finish, Saunum combines Scandinavian design and quality materials.
  • Massive Stone Capacity – Stones are the heart of a Nordic sauna. Ample stones result in softer, more even heat, and can produce more luxurious steam. Large 154-pound stone capacity (required 5 boxes sold separately)

    • Please note that each natural stone is unique in shape and size. We recommend purchasing an additional box of sauna stones to allow you to choose the highest quality of stone for fit, form, and function (Additional freight charges will apply).

  • Himalayan Salt Reservoir – Saunum’s Himalayan salt tray is positioned within the air stream so that salt ions are propelled throughout the sauna to deliver health benefits more effectively.
  • Wi-Fi Control Option – The available AirIQ Wi-Fi control unit allows you to activate a tailored sauna profile and have your custom sauna ready at the time that you specify on your mobile device.
  • Dry your Sauna – Go ahead, toss water onto the rocks! Saunum is engineered for water-tossing, and when you're done enjoying the steam, the patented fan system will conveniently help dry your sauna.
  • UL Certification – Safety and reliability are priorities at Saunum, and each product is engineered to exceed strict UL standards.
  • Available Aromatherapy - Add another sensory layer with Saunum's optional aromatherapy system, which infuses aroma into the steam to further transform your experience.
  • For sauna rooms from 106 to 177 cu. ft.
