    Finnish Sauna

    It is also to aid the air circulation. The air rises at the heater, follows the wall upwards to the ceiling, over to the other wall where it goes down to the floor again. Then along the floor to the wall where the heater is. This way the air spirales its way through the room until it reaches the outlet as far from the inlet as possible. This means that the heat will fill te entire room more evenly. Horizontal panels will cause turbulence by the walls and the circultion will not be as effective as with vertical panels. This is also why the inlet and the outlet should be placed as far from eachother as possible, and reach the same outside room. If the inlet and outlet are placed on opposite walls, the flow will be disturbed by the wind outside. If the wind comes from the heater side, the ...

If the inlet and outlet are placed on opposite walls, the flow will be disturbed by the wind outside. If the wind comes from the heater side, the air will not be heated as it will blow past the heater too quick. If the wind comes from the outlet side, the circulation will be reversed and heat will blow out through the vent below the heater.There is no risk for moisure in the walls as a sauna is much dryer than an ordinary room, also when you pour a lot of water on the heater when using it. After use, it will dry out by itself and no moisture will stay in the walls.

    Finnish Sauna

    A few comments from a sauna-builder in Sweden.The sauna room should have vertical panel.The sauna room should not have vents to the outside. Air in (below the heater) and air out (high and as far from the inlet as possible) should lead from the same place, e.g. the changing room. From there a vent should lead to the outside.You should use e.g. Abachii-wood to sit on (much nicer as it does not get hot).

    Nice, I did a similar project as a part-time alarm clock as I work 3 days a week.
