|A Little Information About
|Saunas are by nature a dry environment. Water is
not required in a sauna, but it is recommended. It makes the air more
breathable and increases the humidity, which intensifies the feeling
of heat. This is accomplished by splashing some water on the sauna
||A permanent water supply is not required. Under no
circumstances should a water tap be directly over the heater. A sauna
bucket and ladle is the preferred method for applying water to the sauna
||A sauna is a high heat, low humidity environment .
Interior ambient humidity in a home is generally between 30 - 40%. The
humidity in a sauna is between 10 - 20%. This is the case even if water is
used. The sauna heater is actually baking the air inside the sauna. When
water is added over the sauna rocks, there is a blast of steam, but it
dissipates immediately. A sauna should not be confused with a steambath
where a steam generator produces steam and the humidity is high.|
|There is very little condensation from a sauna,
so a vent is not necessary. We recommend undercutting the sauna room door
by 1/2" to 1" for fresh air intake.
||Saunas are very inexpensive to operate. Temperature is
irrelevant, the cost of electricity is based strictly on time usage. A
residential sauna is on for about an hour, once or twice a week.
||Commercial saunas should have a drain in the center of the
floor area to facilitate cleaning. Most residential saunas have drains,
but it is not essential. Water should only be used in moderation. It is
splashed on the rocks and evaporates
