The Huum Hive Heat 12 is a highly efficient wood-burning sauna stove for smaller saunas from 212 to 459 cubic feet. It has a unique structure where fresh air is directed into the burning process from above to create a stronger flame. This allows exceptionally clean burning so that no wood gas escapes the chimney as it does with less efficient stoves. The furnace door is made of cast iron for extreme durability and easy maintenance. Hive Heat complies with BimSchV II, the strict German standard for wood-burning stoves, to ensure safety and quality. The HIVE Heat sauna stove is treated only with natural oils, without the use of chemicals.
NOTE: This heater requires stones for operation. The option below provides the required 198 lb of stones. (6 x 33 lb package of 5-10cm stones.)
Required for Operation:
Let’s talk about sauna steam. The air of the hot sauna becomes dry, and hence traditionally water is thrown on the sauna stones to obtain a pleasant level of humidity. Throwing water on the hot sauna stones enables you to raise the humidity and the apparent temperature according to your preferences.
The time is right for throwing the water on sauna stones when they are hot enough for complete vaporization of the water. You can try this by throwing a small amount of water.
It is wise to use hot tap water to prevent the stones from breaking from the abrupt temperature change. Water should be clean, and if possible, avoid hard water and water that has a high iron content.
We recommend throwing approximately 80 ml of water at a time. If you desire more steam, wait a few minutes and throw the same amount of water on the sauna stones. This allows the stones to dry in the meantime and regain their heat. If you notice that water runs out from the bottom of the heater, it means you have poured too much water or that the stones are not hot enough.
The condition of the sauna heater should be checked every now and then. This is particularly important when the sauna heater has not been used for a while.
Heating elements require replacement only when they are broken. Remove some stones from the sauna heater to verify that all the heating elements are in proper working order. Heating elements should become hot when you switch the sauna heater on. If the heating elements do not turn red, they are damaged and must be replaced.
Remove some stones from the sauna heater to verify that all heating elements are in proper working order and turn red when the heater is switched on. If a heating element does not turn red, it is broken and needs to be replaced promptly. Otherwise you risk with damaging other heating elements as well. Only a competent electrician may replace the heating elements.
Spare parts for HUUM sauna heaters are available from our authorized distributors.
Between heating, when the sauna is not hot, but there is still a lot of humidity, unwanted bacteria may start thriving in the sauna. To avoid this, it is important to take care of the cleanliness of the sauna. Here are some useful tips for keeping your sauna clean.
The required quantity of sauna stones depends on the particular HUUM sauna heater model.
Rinse the sauna stones with water before placing them inside the heater. This removes dust from the rocks and provides you with more wholesome steam.
Tempering the sauna stones before their first use is recommended to increase their durability. In order to do it, heat them once to the usual sauna temperature, and let them cool down slowly without throwing water on them.
And done! Sauna stones are ready for subsequent sauna sessions!
Placement of sauna stones significantly affects the quality of the steam. In order to fill the whole space of the sauna heater properly, use smaller and larger stones.
First, take all the sauna stones out of the boxes and separate the smaller stones.
Stack the sauna stones by layers – start from the bottom of the sauna heater and move towards the top. Stones should also be placed between the heating elements. If you first place sauna stones on one side only, the heating elements might deform or break. Start with bigger stones, and use smaller ones for filling the round parts of the heater and places where there is less space.
Leave sufficient gaps for air movement between the sauna stones, and don’t place stones too tightly around the heating elements. Ensure that the heating elements are completely covered and not visible from the exterior surface of the sauna heater. This is important as throwing water directly on the heating elements might damage them. It will also reduce the quality of the steam. Water should evaporate from the sauna stones and not from the heating elements. The top layer of sauna stones should be as dense as possible – this is where the heat arising from below accumulates.
Sauna stones don’t last forever. Contact with water and temperature fluctuations have an impact, and over time they eventually start crumbling. Therefore it is natural that every now and then they should be replaced with new stones.
Frequency of inspecting the condition of sauna stones and replacing them depends on:
In order to inspect the condition of the stones, remove all the stones from the heater.
