The Most Interesting Types Of Saunas You Can Get For Your Home

After a tiring and long day, there’s nothing better than to come home and finally relax a bit. Since nobody has a spa in their house, then the only thing they can do is try to recreate a relaxing, cozy spa experience.

There are many things that you can do to accomplish that and one of them is by purchasing a home sauna. Fortunately, there are a plethora of options on the market at your disposal, however, before you buy one you first need to get yourself familiar with different types of it.

If you haven’t owned one before, yet you are ready to obtain one, then you should definitely take a look at the facts below because they will tell you everything you need to know about different types of saunas.

The Most Popular Types Of Home Saunas

Let’s Start With Infrared Saunas

What do we know about them? Unlike the traditional ones, infrared saunas do not heat the air around you. Namely, they utilize infrared lamps to directly warm your body. Additionally, these types of home saunas employ infrared panels instead of conventional heat to smoothly enter human tissue, heating up the body before they heat up the air.

Those who prefer this type of sauna say that the heat enters more deeply than hot air enabling you to experience more intensive sweat at a lower temperature. There are many benefits of infrared sauna and they include:

  1. Detoxification
  2. Enhanced sleep
  3. Enhanced circulation
  4. Weight loss
  5. Cleaner and tighter skin
  6. Relaxation

Wood-Burning Saunas

These are also known as Finnish saunas and represent dry saunas that have little to no humidity inside. Namely, they are powered by a fire in a wood stove that warms stones which in turn heat the wood-clad sauna area.

Furthermore, the stove heats the wood-burning sauna to somewhere between 140 and 200 degrees F. These types of home saunas are mostly intended for outdoors, for a household in an uncongested space where the smoke isn’t going to negatively impact the neighbors.

Dry-Heat Sauna That Comes With Electric Heater

This type of sauna is actually pretty common and what’s great about it is the fact that it is very easy to use in comparison to the wood-burning sauna because you do not have to constantly worry about whether you’ll have enough wood to keep things heated.

The only thing that you must do is to wire everything the right way and simply push the button and you’ll be good to go. Dry-heat sauna also comes with numerous benefits and certainly, the biggest one is the fact that it gives you a lot of control over the temperature of the room.

That’s sadly not the case with the wood-burning sauna. Another spectacular thing about it is the fact that most of these saunas come with remote control, meaning that you are not forced to get up each time you want to adjust the temperature.

Moving On To Smoke Sauna

In case you didn’t know this is the oldest type of Finnish sauna and surprisingly it’s hard to stumble upon it these days. If you’re interested in acquiring it, you’ll be able to find it easily in Northern European countries, like Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, Finland, as well as Russia.

Furthermore, it is also known as savusauna or savu sauna (in the Finnish language), which represents a smoke sauna that shares some similarities with the wood-burning sauna. The main difference between these two is the fact that there isn’t any chimney pipe.

Moreover, these types of saunas can usually be found outdoors, in the form of a cabin, and can be built relatively fast and easily. On the other hand, the entire heating process can frequently take a lot of time, somewhere between six and eight hours, so if you’re not ready to wait that long, then maybe you should consider purchasing a different one.

Steam Saunas

This one is widely known as a Turkish sauna, hammam, or steam room. Namely, this type of sauna uses moist heat extracted from boiling water that releases steam directly into the chamber.

Additionally, the steam sauna is normally slab-sided in ceramic tile or some other type of non-porous surface. If you’re having some issues with the respiratory system, then it would be more than advisable to consider buying a steam sauna because it’s extremely beneficial for this health condition.

As you can see, every single one of these saunas comes with different features and benefits and some are more or less accessible. But one thing is for sure it’s always welcome to have one.
