FAQs About Traditional Finnish Saunas

  1. What is the difference between a traditional Finnish sauna and an infrared sauna?
    Traditional Finnish saunas use a wood-burning or electric heater to heat rocks, which then radiates heat to warm the air inside the sauna room to very high temperatures (180°F-200°F). Infrared saunas use infrared lamps to directly warm objects/bodies instead of heating the air.

  2. What type of wood is best for a traditional sauna?
    Softwoods like cedar, pine, or spruce are recommended, as hardwoods can become too hot to sit on comfortably. The wood should be kiln-dried to 6-11% moisture content.

  3. How thick should the wood paneling be inside a traditional sauna?
    Thicker wood paneling of 1" thickness is better to prevent shrinkage and warping compared to thinner 1/2" paneling.

  4. Is insulation required for a traditional sauna?
    Yes, insulation with an R-value of at least R11 is recommended between the framing of the walls and ceiling to minimize heat loss.

  5. Can traditional saunas be used dry or with humidity?
    Traditional Finnish saunas are the only type that allow users to control both temperature and humidity levels by choosing to pour water on the rocks or not.

  6. How long does it take for a traditional sauna to heat up?
    With a properly sized electric heater, it usually takes 45-55 minutes for a traditional sauna to fully heat up.

  7. What electrical requirements are needed for a traditional sauna heater?
    Traditional sauna heaters usually require a 240V circuit and typically need to be hardwired by an electrician, often requiring a 30-50 amp breaker depending on the size.
