With news recently about "sweat lodges" I am a bit concerned about what type of ventilation is appropriate in this setting.  What type of regulations are in place for the safety of the patrons who utilize a sauna?

Saunas, when used appropriately, are beneficial to our health and wellbeing.  The key to safe usage is common sense.  Sauna equipment comes with countless recommendations for proper usage and many public facilities post signs informing you of these guidelines.  Following these recommendations and listening to your body will help keep you safe while allowing you to reap all the benefits these environments provide.  As with any health regimen, you should always check with your doctor to be sure you are healthy enough for this activity.

Cross ventilation provides effective air circulation in a sauna room.  Ideally, locate your intake vent directly under or near the heater to pull air into the room.  Place the exhaust vent as close to opposite your intake vent as possible to maximize air exchange.  To discuss the specifics of your sauna installation, call a Sauna Specialist.
