I think, an electric sauna heater would be better than some other heaters. It offers a less maintenance and effort to use.

Hello,
i want to buy a sauna heater from a local web site in Turkey.( http://www.malzemem.com/kategori/sauna-malzemeleri.aspx ) They say Harvia is the best heater in Turkey. There are Helo and Fintech as alternative. Price is not important endurance is important for me because my house is far from city center. What do you suggest?

Buy a house closer to the city?

I've thought on taking the stones and washing them and then maybe try and clean the heating system, but since it will all be reaching very high temperatures I guess I can't use any kind of soap?

Change the stones. One manufacturer recommends that if you use sauna bi-weekly, you should replace the stones every year.

Does anyone have experience with these “soft” sauna heaters? I like dry saunas, but my wife is less accustomed to sauna and she might prefer it. Also, the steam might be good for my (bad) lungs. Basically, would it be worth all the extra money?

Teflon coated heating element sounds like a bad idea, it melts at 327 degrees.

Hi!
If you have a minimal amount of stones - like in Tylo, you can't get much steam "löyly" from the heater.

A Finnish sauna heater manufacturer used to have a Swedish Tylo heater installed in their premises for customer demonstrations.
They had heated the stones in Tylo, then poured a bucket of water on the stones (for "löyly") - and then they were immediately able to pick out with their bare hands all the stones from the heater!
- You'll certainly need enough stones in the heater to be able to enjoy your sauna. :-)
