In the digital age, we're constantly engulfed by the flames of information, multitasking, always on the run, with screens illuminating our lives at every turn. This has a very negative impact on our health, productivity, and wellbeing, leaving little room for personal reflection and relaxation. Amidst life’s chaos, there's a longing for a sanctuary—a place to disconnect, recalibrate, and find our centre.

Sweating in a sauna can help the body eliminate toxins through the skin. This process aids in removing heavy metals and other harmful substances from the body.
The heat from the sauna helps relax muscles and soothe aches in both muscles and joints. This relaxation can lead to reduced stress and enhanced mental well-being.
Regular sauna use can improve skin health by opening pores and removing dead skin cells, resulting in clearer and softer skin.
Some studies suggest that regular sauna use can increase white blood cells, which are vital in fighting off infections and illnesses.
While the primary weight loss from a sauna session is water weight (due to sweating), there's evidence suggesting that regular sauna use can boost metabolism,
contributing to weight loss over time.
The warm, moist air in a sauna can help open airways and improve lung function, benefiting individuals with asthma or bronchitis.

Nowadays, saunas come in a wide variety of shapes and for every budget. But the bigger and more individual, the more expensive the sauna will be. The cost of your own sauna is divided into purchase price and operating costs. The purchase price varies depending on the type of sauna (indoor, outdoor), standard model or custom-made. In addition, there are transport costs and installation costs if the sauna is installed by a professional. The monthly operating costs consist of the running costs as well as the electricity costs. Hot Tub Barn offers unbeatable introductory prices for the purchase of our sensational sauna novelties.
While it varies for everyone, many people find 3-4 times a week for 15-20 minutes per session to be beneficial.
Make sure that the sauna stones are washed before carefully placing them around the heating elements, avoiding pressure and making sure that the stones are the right size so that they do not get lost between the heating elements - but also so that the air can circulate properly between the cavities.
The heating elements must be completely covered by the stones to ensure optimum heating performance and to avoid any risk of burns for the user. The sauna heater must be heated up properly for at least 1 hour with the door open before you dare to take your first sauna session.
Please also note that heat can soften the plastic inserts on the hinges. Check the door and the door handles - if necessary, tighten the screw connections and, if necessary, adjust the door again correctly (this does not constitute a reason for warranty).
After each sauna session, ventilate the sauna well. Clean the sauna only after it has cooled down completely. Clean the sauna from top to bottom. Wipe the sauna benches with a slightly damp cloth. The upper benches are automatically disinfected by the high heat. This is not sufficient for the lower benches - they should be cleaned occasionally with a special care disinfectant.Hydrogen peroxide (3 %) can be purchased in pharmacies for this purpose - this natural substance evaporates into oxygen and water. Never use agents containing chlorine or oil for this purpose.
Coarse soiling or discolouration can be removed with a fine emery paper (100 - 150 grain). Limescale stains or discolouration caused by additives of the aroma infusions often form on the sauna heater.
Clean the heater with a microfibre cloth. For heavier soiling, we recommend vinegar or citric acid in the cleaning water. Wipe the floor with clear water and a lint-free floor cloth - occasionally a commercially available floor cleaner can also be used.
Always wipe dry well and then leave the sauna door open.
Knowing the temperature zones in the sauna: Normally, a sauna has 2 bench levels and thus 3 temperature zones. With a set sauna temperature of 80 degrees, this results in the following zones - depending slightly on the design and location of the cabin (house or garden):
All heating elements work 100 % of the time until the selected target temperature is reached - afterwards on average only 60 % to 70 % of the time - depending on the number and fluctuation of people using the sauna. A 9 kW heater consumes approx. 4.28 GBP in the usage time of 3 hours at a kW price of 0.22 GBP.
The heating time depends on the size of the cabin, on the heater output but also on the materials used, on the location of the cabin, on the dimensioning of the supply and exhaust air, on the insulation and on the quantity of stones. Stoves with more than 90 kg of stones take longer to do this.
The decisive factor is that the walls, the benches and the ceiling can absorb the heat energy and then re-radiate it as infrared heat. The sauna heater absorbs about 70 % radiant heat, about 25 % convection heat from the stove (transferred via air) and about 5 % contact heat via the bench. A sufficient exchange of air (4 - 5 air changes per hour) also ensures that the desired sauna climate is achieved quickly and pleasantly. The corresponding supply air and the air circulation in the heater interact with the exhaust air opening on the ceiling side (this depends on the conditions in the cabin).
