This Harvia heater lets you enjoy relaxation on demand. The Forte heater is always at your service - no pre-heating required! When not in use, the heater goes into a low power mode, while still keeping the rocks hot enough that you can just flip the lid open and start enjoying the sauna!
You can use the Forte heater both as a hot traditional sauna heater, or for lower temperature steam bathing. You get the traditional experience if you turn the heater power on full (from stand-by ECO mode), and open the air circulation valve fully. If you leave the air valve closed, the sauna doesn't get so hot, and you still get nice amount of silky smooth steam by throwing water to the stones. This heater lets you choose between traditional Finnish style sauna and a Turkish steam bath!
Steam or traditional sauna? Have it both ways!

Hi! I am Jaakko, and I was born and raised in Finland. It is also the country where saunas originated. Saunas have always been a natural part of my life, and I think that life would be better for everyone if they could experience a sauna every now and then.
I don't believe in doing business anonymously, and I stand behind the service and products we provide to you. If you want to know more about me (founder & owner), you can find more information here.
I had always known that sauna culture was not as big in the USA as in Finland. When I started doing research in the online sauna market here, I knew I could compete. However, even a lifetime of sauna bathing experience is not the same as sauna design experience.
That's why I teamed up with Timo the Saunaman, who has been designing and building custom saunas in the United States for 25 years. Our mission is to bring you the right information, the right products, and to help you make the best decisions to experience what we have: that divine bliss of a perfect sauna.
Timo, also known as Timo the Saunaman, was also born in Finland. He's been living in the US for most of his life, and has been designing and building saunas for the US market since 1995. He focuses on designing custom built traditional Finnish style saunas. He has worked together with Finnleo and Finlandia Saunas on projects ranging from small home saunas to large commercial and governmental projects.
Timo was also chosen and given the honor of designing and specifying materials for the early 1900's log sauna restoration project at the National Nordic Museum in Seattle, WA which will be completed by summer of 2019.
Together with Timo's decades of sauna design experience, we are able to tackle any sauna related challenge!
Customer first: When running a business, there are always a lot of decisions to make, and a lot of the factors affecting those decisions often seem to be opposing each other. We find that these decisions get easier when we ask a simple question: what would the customer want?
Honesty & Integrity: Finns are very honest people, sometimes to a fault (life would be easier if we didn't find even white lies difficult!). Integrity is an extension of honesty over long period of time. We think twice before promising something, because we don't go back on our word.
Commitment to quality: For us, quality means doing things right. In order to stick to our long term goal of advancing the Finnish/Nordic sauna culture in the US, we can't make big compromises for small short term savings. We accept the fact that quality has its price, and are ready to look farther into the future. That goes for both customer service and the quality of the products.
Our Vision is simple: we believe that the people in United States would have better lives with more saunas. Our Mission is to further that goal by offering you the right products and a great long term customer experience.
We will provide you with the best sauna and spa products, design services and support. We believe that great businesses should be built on long term customer relationships, and we're here to serve you. If you have any questions, you can give me (Jaakko) a call at 888-554-4332!
