In the Russian bath, the most important thing is the stove, and it is very important to choose the right stove. The decision to choose a furnace is made in the process of building a bath. Furnaces are gas, electric, wood and differ in the type of energy, material and type of heater.
The air in the steam room is heated to 97 degrees with the help of a heater, which emits steam when poured with water. The heater should not emit smoke and be economical. Furnaces are of two types – open or closed.
To regulate the draft in the pipes of the stoves, valves are installed that must be closed if the firewood is completely burned out. It is not recommended to close the smoke damper if the firewood has not burned out, as carbon monoxide is formed.
Due to the fact that there are no specialists of such a profile, less and less brick ovens are built in the baths. More often they began to use metal furnaces, which can have a variety of designs.
Electric sauna stoves consist of 3 components, namely the body, thermal protection and electric heater. These furnaces are covered with metal on all sides and the stones are heated by heat transfer from the metal. This type of stove does not emit carbon monoxide and there is no danger of poisoning. This type of furnace is used to obtain a mild temperature regime in the bath. They can quickly raise the desired temperature, so that after half an hour you can start bathing procedures. But they also cool down quickly. When building such a furnace, all necessary fire safety measures should be taken.
Control panels are included for user convenience. There is a sensor in the steam room that records the completed task, after which the temperature is set from the remote control. When the temperature has reached the desired value, the electric furnace waits for the next commands in standby mode. There are also remote controls that can program the operation of the oven for several days in advance. Automation guarantees the safety of electric furnaces. If the temperature in the steam room is too high, the power is turned off.
