The Beauty of Simplicity: Installing The Drop Electric Sauna Heater

Saunas are the perfect addition to any home, offering a relaxing and rejuvenating experience. The Drop electric sauna heater is an award-winning option that combines functionality with artistic design, making it a unique addition to any sauna. In this article, we'll provide a step-by-step guide on how to install The Drop electric sauna heater, from considering safety distances to testing the heater.

Understanding The Drop Electric Sauna Heater

Before diving into the installation process, let's take a moment to appreciate the beauty of The Drop electric sauna heater. Inspired by the purest element in nature, a drop of water, The Drop combines simplicity with elegance, making it a perfect fit for any sauna. The heater comes with a heat shield built into the back, and if you opt for the 9kW version, you'll also have a heat reflector at the top. Keep in mind that control units and sauna stones need to be purchased separately.

Choosing the Right Spot

The first step in installing The Drop electric sauna heater is choosing the right spot. Consider safety distances, functional requirements, and personal preferences. The Drop manual provides all the necessary safety distances to ensure a safe installation, considering combustible surfaces and walking areas around the heater. Next, think about the best spot for comfortably pouring water onto The Drop. You'd ideally want to do that from a convenient seated position, so take that into account when choosing the location. Finally, consider which location is most visually appealing to you and best complements the look of your sauna. Heated stones are the heart of a sauna, so we like to think of The Drop as a very functional work of art.

Installing The Drop Electric Sauna Heater

Once you've chosen the right spot, it's time to install The Drop electric sauna heater. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Mark the spot on the wall where you will attach the wall plate. In your manual, all the safety distances you need have already been measured from your wall plate, not the actual heater, which will make it easier for you to double-check now that it's in a safe location.
  2. Fix the wall plate to the wall using six screws. Most people would probably use a level to do this properly, but if you're confident in your skills, you can skip this step.
  3. Remove the protective film from the heater and, just for now, also remove the heat shield that protects the wall from overheating.
  4. Remove the cover of the electric box. You can then pull the cable through the heat shield back and through this rubber gland.
  5. Clean the ends of the cable and attach them to The Drop electric sauna heater.
  6. Screw the box cover back on and simply reattach the heat shield.
  7. Hang The Drop electric sauna heater onto the steel plate.
  8. Switch on the heater to ensure proper connection before adding stones.

Additional Considerations

It's important to note that the installation process may vary depending on the specific sauna setup and requirements. Some users may prefer professional installation instead of DIY installation. Additionally, the cost of purchasing control units and sauna stones separately may be an additional expense for users. The Drop electric sauna heater may not be suitable for all sauna sizes or types, so make sure to do your research before making a purchase.

Conclusion

The Drop electric sauna heater is a beautiful and functional addition to any sauna. Installing it is a straightforward process that anyone can do with a little bit of patience and attention to detail. By following the steps outlined in this article, you'll be able to enjoy the benefits of The Drop electric sauna heater in no time.
