Features of the use of heaters in baths

In order for the steam room in the bath to be used as efficiently as possible, it must be properly insulated. Therefore, they use different insulation for the bath, depending on the material of the building structures. Let's talk about the advantages of thermal insulation, the main types of insulation materials, the features of using a thermal insulator in a brick, expanded clay concrete and wooden building.

Manufacturers offer a wide range of insulation

Advantages of using insulation material

The steam room and the entire bath are insulated not only because of the cold winters. A well-insulated building will also quickly heat up from a melted stove. However, when insulating a building, it is taken into account that different building structures are thermally insulated in different ways. During this process, insulating layers are created that differ in structure.

Insulation of the steam room and the entire bath allows:

  • Ensure proper circulation of moisture and steam. Well-executed thermal insulation of building structures will prevent water droplets from appearing on walls, ceilings and various finishing materials. Therefore, the cladding will be less exposed to negative influences. This will reduce the likelihood of rotting. In addition, it will be less mold and mildew growth. Reducing the negative impact will positively affect the appearance of the finishing material. It will retain its original appearance longer.
High-quality thermal insulation allows you to increase the service life of the finish of the bath
  • Significantly reduce the amount of firewood required to light the stove. If you use the right high-quality heater for the sauna, then it will be possible to heat up the premises of the building faster. This will require significantly less fuel for kindling the furnace structure. Besides, people do not have to wait long for the temperature in the steam room to reach the desired value.
  • Increase the level of comfort in all areas of the building. Thanks to high-quality insulation, people will not freeze in the dressing room and the rest room. They will be able to shower in a special compartment at a comfortable ambient temperature.

Usually a steam room in a bath is insulated from the inside. This is a proven option for thermal insulation of building structures. Thanks to insulation, the service life of the entire structure is increased. The use of high-quality thermal insulation will allow the owner to carry out repair work less often.

A proven option for insulation is the internal thermal insulation of the steam room

Note! You always have to carry out additional insulation of the building structures of the bath, if the building was originally erected in violation of the technology. In addition, improperly folded stoves are often found that cool quickly. In this case, it is thermal insulation that will reduce heat loss through walls, ceiling and floor.

Insulation materials used

Of course, now straw is no longer used to insulate buildings. After all, it is an ineffective heat insulator compared to modern materials. Instead, they use a heater for the steam room, created in high-tech production. Manufacturers produce it in large quantities.

Note! The thickness of the heat insulator for the steam room is not regulated. However, the approximate values ​​of the material are indicated in SP 50.13330.2012. Experts advise using them as minimum values ​​when calculating the required thickness of the heat insulator. It is recommended that you do not decrease the specified values ​​in the set of rules.
