The wood-burning sauna originated in Finland and is the traditional type of sauna. Wood-burning stoves are commercially available, and today’s stoves are very efficient requiring less effort in its maintenance. The amazing experience of sauna rests in giving the user a simple, natural heat experience where wood is used to heat the sauna rocks and the room. The temperature of the wood-burning sauna can be controlled, although the temperatures can reach a very high level. The stoves heater is most commonly used which constitutes bathing under the burning of woods. Hence, if desired, the user can create the needed temperature by the controlling the rate of burn in the stove.
This type of sauna has been in existence since the ancient times, dated back in the years 1950’s. The electric heater is most widely used across world. All major sauna companies have heaters available for all sizes. In the modern lifestyle and in many such installations, the only feasible heater type is quite often an electric model. This implies that its installation is quite achievable in the most simple and normal way. Most sauna studios find it more viable to adopt the electric heater as it can be easily fixed. New wall or floor-mounted electric heaters are efficient, stylish, safe, and easy to use, and offer a superb experience. They are more practical and the temperature can be controlled from a remote control, which also displays the temperature and timers. Electric heaters are less messy and do not generate as much smoke and carbon as the wood burning types.
The smoke sauna is an outdoor type of sauna. It bears the Finnish tradition and is quite rare type as in involves a big wood-burning stove with no chimney. It is mostly for outdoor purposes. The heater consists of heating stones and rocks. The heat is generated from the rocks. The “heater” consists of massive amounts of rocks that are heated up for several hours before the bathers will be able to use it. The smoke and flames from the burning wood heat the rock mass directly, and the smoke enters the sauna room from between the rocks. After the heating phase has been completed, and the flame is out, the room is ventilated, and the sauna is ready to be used. A good smoke sauna offers a very genuine and smooth experience. However, as explained above, the procedure is time-consuming, and requires special considerations as the stones are heated first before the it is put into use.
The steam room is mostly seen in gym and spa studios where people can make the best use of it, following a good physical workout. It is considered as being one of the best forms of elimination of the toxins from the body and while at the same time it helps in skin cleansing. The history of the steam room was originated in Turkey and is not a sauna, but rather a Turkish-style Bath. In comparison to the traditional sauna, the maximum humidity can reach the level in a steam bath is 100%. The steam room generates hot vapor and the whole room is wet during the steaming process. The Steam Room enclosure is made of a waterproof material such as ceramic tile, glass, stone or acrylic. The room reaches maximum humidity and the temperature in a Steam Bath is much lower than in sauna (110 to 120 degrees F). The steam room can be used both as an indoor and outdoor type of sauna.
The infrared sauna room is not the traditional Finnish sauna, and can be best defined as the “heat therapy room”. It does not use water or steam. The system of heating is different from other types of heaters. An infrared room is best used as a prior-sports muscle pre-heat means, or after the sports or exercise to relax the tension in the muscles. Several manufacturers sell infrared rooms in addition to steam rooms and traditional Finnish Saunas. Infrared heat therapy rooms are based on radiant heat, where the heating elements or emitters reflect the heat directly to the person’s body, rather than heating the air, or stones. The heat is targeted directly on the body.
