How much ventilation should a 7x6x8 foot cedar sauna room have?
We are revamping our sauna and have heard several different answers.  Should ventilation areas be at the top or bottom of the room?  Do you need a vent by the heater?  Does the outside temperature affect the room temperature?

Any input would be very beneficial.

Yes, for proper air flow and to avoid nuisance high limit tripping saunas require ventilation.

One (1) vent goes on the wall behind the heater, this is the air intake.
Then one (1) vent goes on the wall across from the heater towards the ceiling (if possible) for the outtake.

The air temperature outside the sauna room will not have any effect.  The air flow still allows the room to maintain temperature.

So, is it that ventilation area should be at the top of the room?

The intake vent provides oxygen for a comfortable atmosphere and should be located 4" to 6" from the floor closest to the sauna heater.

The outtake vent can be most anywhere in the environment as low as 26" from the floor and as high as 10" from the ceiling.  Most often it is under the upper bench.

Wherever possible, the exhaust vent should terminate in common air space as the lower intake (fresh air) vent.
