The number of Infrared sauna heaters, being the heart of the sauna, must be the correct wattage to be efficient and to meet electrical codes. To determine the number of heater you require, first calculate the room volume.

Note: Round up to give better performance.
1.) 4 ft x 4 ft x 6.5 ft = 104 cubic feet
2.) Multiply by 15 (104 x 15) = 1560
3.) 1560/300 = 5.2 or 6 panels
