Sauna from home, typologies and models: Differences between Finnish and infrared sauna
There are many differences between the Finnish and the infrared sauna: this is how to orient yourself for choice.
The Finnish sauna allows you to reach very high temperatures, from 40 ° to 110 ° C while the infrared ones range in a range ranging from 30 ° to 50 ° C.
The infrared sauna warms up in just under 15 minutes, allowing for a warm bath of over 40: the Finnish sauna instead warms up gradually and requires several cycles of stay with intermittent pauses, no more than three at rest time ranges from 8 to 20 minutes maximum.
The two types of sauna heat different air and body: the infrared sauna irradiates the body for 80% of the energy, heating the air for the remaining 20%, while the Finnish sauna heats the stove 100% of air, which in turn heats the surface of the body.
