What You Should Know About a Home Sauna Room
Types of Saunas
A home sauna can be built in many shapes and styles. It could be a separate building or built
as a sauna room inside a house or apartment. Traditional saunas are wooden structures and are as beautiful as
they are functional.
The worldwide popularity of saunas has spurred innovative new designs. One of the most unusual of these is the
portable sauna - folding saunas that can be used
almost anywhere. They are just big enough for one person to sit in. There is a hole for your head and slits for
your hands if you wish to read or talk on the phone while you are sitting in this portable sauna.
Another unusual design is the barrel sauna. This is a small cabin
constructed using barrel making techniques and can hold six to eight people. Barrel saunas can be installed
either inside or outside the house and can be heated with a wood or electric stove.
The infrared sauna has been used since the
1960s. The heating source is an infrared heater. Unlike traditional heaters that heat the air of the sauna,
infrared heaters heat objects and people but not the air. Infrared is a type of light and proponents of infrared
saunas say that they have superior health benefits to traditional saunas.

are all made from beautiful woods such as cedar or hemlock. The only non-wood materials are the sauna heaters and the sauna rocks.
The sauna provides a dry heat - usually between 70 and 100 degrees Celsius (158 and 212 degrees Fahrenheit). From
time to time water can be thrown on the rocks on the heater. This creates a cloud of steam which has the effect of
immediately raising the temperature.
The dry sauna can be heated with one of two types of sauna heaters. In the countryside, wood burning sauna heaters are traditional, but
most urban saunas use electric sauna
