Kota Saana Electric Sauna Heater
"We choose to sell only Narvi Oy sauna heaters because they offer the authentic Finnish sauna experience."
Narvi Oy are proud to be the only 'Finnish key-flag' sauna heater brand available in the UK. The key flag is only awarded to Finnish companies whose production is based 80% or more in Finland. Narvi's operations are 100% based in Finland. For the last 80 years their ethos has been simple and uncompromising, that proper Finnish sauna should be Finnish-made and Finnish-designed, by skilled Finnish craftspeople, in the very heart of the Finnish countryside.
Narvi are a ‘customer-first’ brand who will always choose to focus on producing high quality, traditional and authentic sauna heaters, because the Narvi brand is first and foremost about doing sauna properly, not about profit margins. Narvi are truly passionate about Finnish sauna and thus their mission is a simple one: to deliver the finest löyly in the world!
As any lover of sauna knows, a great löyly is about more than just the steam. Narvi heaters have an unrivalled stone capacity that ensure the perfect, soft heat. Their heaters are highly energy-efficient and have markedly low-emission, famously producing the wood-burning Narvi NC16 sauna heater, that has the lowest emission in the world! Energy-efficiency is also about product lifespan, their heaters are produced with only the very highest quality materials and have an unbeatable build quality, meaning by the time you would need to replace a Narvi, you probably won’t remember when you bought it. The perfect löyly, or sauna atmosphere, is as much about aesthetics as it is about feeling, thus Narvi combine this durability, eco-friendliness and large stone capacity with attractive Nordic design.
Narvi's selection of sauna products consists of three ranges: Narvi, Aito and Kota. The Aito AK-47 heater is the quintessential traditional Finnish heat-storing sauna heater: it has served even the most demanding Finnish sauna-goers (including the Finnish Presidents) for decades and continues to receive nothing but praise. Kota is designed around the off-grid, summer house or cabin aesthetic: hard-wearing, simple yet effective and available with water heating features. Narvi’s own range remains the steadfast masters of the home sauna heater industry, creating the perfect fusion of every element required to make that perfect sauna experience!

We at Finnmark are proud to be the exclusive UK distributors of the leading sauna brands Narvi, Aito and Kota. On occasion we are contacted by customers who are contemplating a purchase from a cheap Eastern European or Russian webshops wondering why there is a notable price difference. In this instance we suggest you contact Narvi Oy directly, for full impartial advice, however, our stance is as follows:
As exclusive distributors of Narvi products, Finnmark Ltd are responsible for upholding the high-end brand values of Narvi Oy. We must ensure that both the quality of product and quality of service is as it should be for any Narvi customer. Finnmark are UK based, pay UK tax, UK rates, have UK staff and are fully VAT registered. We are 100% accountable and have comprehensive liability insurance. These operating costs, as well as shipping and handling costs for a European product to a UK based company, are reflected in the marginally higher UK retail price.
We are aware of the growing number of grey sellers of Narvi products online who continue to appear as if they are distributors, despite not having any contractual connection with Narvi Oy. These sellers are often based in Eastern Europe or Russia and sometimes go to extraordinary lengths to appear as if they are located in the UK. Don't be fooled. If you buy from these sellers, one of two things are most likely to happen: either they don't have Narvi products and are simply listing the products as a price dumping strategy, or as a lure to suggest a different product to a customer which they stock; or worse still, they will ship you a grey import product that will not represent Narvi's high brand standards, that will likely have insufficient liability insurance and may even be dangerous. The company will likely be unaccountable for any issues and worst of all, your purchase may have no manufacturers warranty as a 'second-hand' product.
We strongly suggest you only buy from official Narvi dealers in your country of residence. In the case of the UK, this is Finnmark Limited (www.finnmark.co.uk). Finnmark bears no responsibility for the repair or replacement of any grey goods purchased by non-official dealers. Furthermore, Finnmark will provide no compensation for damage or injury caused by products purchased from anyone other than the UK registered dealer. For advice on who to purchase from in your region, please contact Narvi via their website: http://www.narvi.fi/en/contacts/sales.html
The Kota Saana electric sauna heater is an excellent option for sauna goers that are unable to fit a wood burning sauna heater. Kota, literally translating as ‘hut’ or 'cabin', is a Narvi Oy brand, that is designed with the outdoor-lover in mind. When unable to fulfil the outdoor dream by fitting a wood burning Kota sauna heater in your sauna cabin, the Kota Saana is the next best thing. It combines the Kota stylish rustic aesthetic, with a large stone capacity, durability and build quality. This large stone capacity promises a soft steam throughout the duration of the heaters use. The 8.5mm Narvi brand heater coil, twinned with their celebrated rust-resistant build, guarantees a product that meets Finnmark’s Endurance ethos standards.
The heater comes with a remote control unit that makes adjusting the sauna temperature and heating time an easy task. The sauna heater is also compatible with other control units that may better suit the aesthetic of your sauna. Hence the option to choose the heater without a control unit. The Saana shares a similar, eye-catching, stone-cage design like the Softy or Velvet. The Saana’s stone cage is available in black, white or stainless steel that would be well suited to both indoor and outdoor saunas. The Saana has a number of optional extras that work well will the heater. There is a metal sauna heater flange for safely fixing the heater within the sauna benching. There is also an extension piece available that raises the height of the heater.
This heater can be easily installed by a qualified electrician on both single phase and three phase power supplies, with the use of the 'Narvi N2014E Power Card, Control Unit & Thermostat', which can be bought together. To learn more about installing electrical heaters on domestic power supplies, see our "How to choose the right electric sauna heater" page.
