There is also the wood burning sauna for your spa room. Wood is used to heat the sauna by burning it in the stove. The necessary temperature is reached by controlling the amount of fire in the stove. The ideal temperature for this type of sauna is not less than 65.5 C when measured where a person is sitting. Throwing some water on the heated rocks controls humidity in the sauna.
A few components to consider while you plan your sauna are:
• Selecting the perfect type of sauna wood is essential for the overall sauna design.
• Careful consideration should be given to the choice of heater for your maximum satisfaction with your sauna.
• Determine the size of the heater you need. Heaters are sized in kilowatts (KW).
• Do you want wall mount controls on the wall outside the sauna room or do you want controls right on the heater?
• Allow for venting.
A cost guideline for a custom built sauna would be around the $10,000 mark.
