Sauna means a specific room heated to about 150 to 195 (F) degrees, and where the temperature and humidity of the room can be controlled with sprinkling water on the rocks in the heater/stove. The average relative humidity level in a traditional sauna varies from as low as 10% to 60%, or more depending upon how much steam the user likes and how hot the sauna temperature is.
“Sweat Bathing” is a kind of general definition for various types of original bathing in high temperatures “Sauna” being one of them. Today worldwide when one mentions the word “sauna”, people most often associate it with the Traditional Finnish Sauna. This is the sauna loved and promoted by the American Sauna Society and the larger worldwide organization, the International Sauna Society.
Wood Burning Sauna
The wood burning sauna is the closest to the ancient Finnish saunas a simple, natural experience where wood is used to heat the sauna rocks and the sauna room. The majority of the stoves used in these are continuously heated stoves, in which the wood is being burned in the stove during the sauna bathing.
Electrically Heated Sauna
The vast majority of today’s saunas use electric sauna heaters. In many sauna installations, the only feasible sauna heater type is quite often an electric heater. New wall- or floor-mounted electric heaters are efficient, stylish, safe, and easy to use, and offer a superb sauna experience. They often include remote controls with temperature displays and timers.
Manufactured Sauna Rooms
Electrically heated sauna rooms (also sauna rooms with wood-burning heaters) are available both as free-standing modular units, and as pre-cut lumber kits. The lumber materials most often used include Western Red Cedar, Nordic White Spruce, Aspen, Alder, Hemlock, and Pine.
Smoke sauna (“Savu Sauna” in Finnish language) is a rarer sauna type, with a big wood-burning stove – without a chimney. The sauna “heater” consists of a massive amounts of rocks (several hundreds of pounds of rocks) and is heated up for several hours before the bathers will be able to use it.
Not a traditional Finnish sauna; maybe the best definition would be a “heat therapy room”. 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.
Finnish Sauna is one of the most popular sauna types in Germany. With this system, water is poured over the stove, producing steam and further raising increasing the temperature. Steam and heat reflects against the wooden walls and ceiling.
