Title: INSTALLING YOUR BATH FAN IN A SAUNA
Post by: Ana on January 29, 2010, 05:21:37 PM
I SEE UR WEBSITE TALKS ABOUT INSTALLING A BATH FAN FIR STEAM, HOWEVER, WHAT ABOUT INSTALLING THIS IN MY SAUNA?  WOULD IT MAKE THE ROOM HEAT QUICKER?  WOULD THE PRODUCT HOLD UP TO THE HEAT?  IF IT CAN BE USED IN A SAUNA, WHERE SHOULD IT BE INSTALLED?  PLEASE HELP....THANKS FOR ANY ADVISE.

Sauna's do not have the 100% humidity that a Steam Shower has so an exhaust vent is not needed.  Also, Bath Fans are not rated for the higher heats of a Sauna vs. Steam so some components may melt.
Sauna temps range 165-185, Steam temps range 110-120.
Sauna humidity 50% or less, Steam humidity 100%.
There is ventilation in sauna's with an intake vent behind the heater and an outtake vent on the wall opposite the heater.  This is air flow to help circulate the heat.
If you wanted to install a bath fan, you would need to do it near the floor since the floor is cooler than the ceiling.  Heat rises.
