While a 6.0kW heater could heat the space, it will take longer to get the space to the top temperature of 195°F, especially in colder ambient temperatures. The 8.0kW heater guarantees the best performance, but the 6.0kW heater is permissible for the size of the space.

Hi Ray! The sauna comes as a DIY kit. It will take two people about 4-6 hours to construct. We have an assembly video on our YouTube (ahsaunas) that you can view for reference.
Hi Allen! The heater will be located on the back wall of the sauna. The electrician hardwiring the heater connection can drill an access point wherever is most convenient, though most people put the access point through the back wall.
Hi Ang! This model is rustic red cedar.
The 8.0kW dial-controlled KIP heater requires a dedicated circuit for the 220-V, 40-amp, 8/2 wire (two hots and a ground; do not install a GFCI) hardwire connection. In addition, the sauna contains a LED light bar that plugs in to a regular 110-V.
Almost Heaven Saunas does not provide installation at this time, but we have resources available on YouTube to assist in installation along with a detailed instruction manual. If you'd rather not DIY, any contractor or handyman should be able to install with ease. Feel free to call us at 888.355.3050 if any questions arise during the process!
