We generally recommend that you always replace all heating elements.

Heating rods are wearing parts because they are exposed to a high heat load (up to 400 degrees). However, the customer can do a lot to make the rods last a long time.

Heating rods (tubular heating elements) usually die a "heat death". If the sauna stones are stacked too densely, the heat cannot escape upwards, there is a so-called "heat build-up". If, however, the heating elements are surrounded by stones that are too loosely layered, the heat cannot be transferred to the stones and thus transported upwards, which is also harmful in the long run. If the stones are filled too loosely, the "cold" infusion water gets directly onto the heating elements, which also shortens their lifespan.

The stones should also be replaced regularly, every 2 years for private use and annually for commercial use, as the extreme loads cause parts to crumble off and the heat storage capacity of the sauna stones decreases.
