Abstract

(57) [Summary] [Purpose] Keep costs low. Makes sweating easy, fast and comfortable. [Structure] A heat applying means 1 for directly heating a human body a by heat conduction is provided. The heating means 2 is provided for adjusting the atmosphere in the room to a temperature of 40 ° C. to 50 ° C. and a humidity of 70% or more.

Description

Detailed Description of the Invention

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention relates to a sauna which can sweat comfortably.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, saunas are classified into a dry type that uses an electric heater and the heat of combustion gas to heat the room to a high temperature of about 100 ° C. and a steam type that fills the room with steam of about 40 ° C. to 50 ° C. .

[0003]

However, in the former dry type, since it enters an atmosphere of high temperature and low humidity, it causes too much irritation to the respiratory organs and skin, so that people and children who are suffocating and sick are ill. Or, it is not suitable for the elderly, and in the latter steam type, it is difficult to breathe because the humidity is too high, and the low temperature causes unsatisfactory feeling.

Further, in the dry type, when the heat of the electric heater or the combustion gas is used as the heat source, the running cost is high. If the electric capacity is small, the rising characteristics are poor, and if the capacity is large, the initial cost increases. There have been various problems that it is easy to break down due to humidity and that great care must be taken in safety aspects such as electrical insulation.

The present invention is intended to solve the above problems, and an object of the present invention is to provide a sauna which can sweat easily, quickly and comfortably while keeping the cost low.

[0006]

In order to achieve the above-mentioned object, the sauna of the present invention has a heat applying means 1 for directly heating the human body a by heat conduction, and a room atmosphere having a temperature of 40 ° C to 50 ° C.
The heating means 2 is provided to adjust the temperature and humidity to 70% or more.

[0007]

However, by directly heating the human body a by means of heat conduction by the heat applying means 1, it is not as difficult as a dry type in which the temperature inside the room becomes high or a steam type in which steam fills the room. You can sweat easily, quickly, and comfortably. In other words, by directly heating the human body a by heat conduction, the human body a is efficiently warmed by radiant heat, and it is not necessary to heat the indoor air to a high temperature as in a dry-type sauna, and the humidity is also reduced. It is possible to directly heat the human body a to perspire without making the humidity high, unlike the steam type.

[0008]

The present invention will be described below in detail based on the illustrated embodiments. In each of the illustrated embodiments, it is shown to be formed in a bathroom. A bathtub 4 is installed in the bathroom body 3, and a heater 5 for heating the water stored in the bathtub 4 is arranged in the bathtub 4. When the heater 5 is operated, the water stored in the bathtub 4 is stored. The temperature rises and steam comes out indoors, increasing indoor humidity. Here, information of a humidity sensor or the like is fed back to the heater 5 to control the indoor humidity, and the indoor humidity is controlled to be 70% or more.

A mat 6 is arranged on the upper part of the bathtub 4, and the mat 6 is supported by a reclining support base 7 provided on the upper part of the bathtub 4. The warm water in the bathtub 4 heated by the heater 5 can be passed through the mat 6, and the warm water heats the human body by passing warm water through the mat 6 while a person is seated. It can be heated directly by conduction,
With this, the heat applying means 1 is formed. here,
The temperature of the mat 6 that the human body a directly touches is determined by a temperature sensor (not shown) provided on the mat 6 and a hot water temperature control function for managing the temperature of the stored water in the bathtub 4 as a hot water source. The temperature is controlled to be 45 ° C to 55 ° C. A water supply pipe 8 derived from the bathtub 4 is connected to one end of the mat 6, and a drainage pipe 9 connected to the bathtub 4 is derived from the other end of the mat 6, and the bathtub is connected via the water supply pipe 8. Hot water supplied from 4 to the mat 6 is returned to the bathtub 4 again from the drain pipe 9.

In the wall material 10 of the bathroom main body 3, a part of the hot water pipe 11 which is led out from the bathtub 4 and returned to the bathtub 4 is buried, and the wall material 10 is heated by the hot water passing through the hot water pipe 11. Raise the temperature of to release radiant heat into the room,
The room temperature can be raised. A warm air blowing unit 12 is provided on the ceiling of the bathroom body 3. This warm air blowing unit 12 is a fan 12
a and the heat radiation coil 12b are built in, and the water supply pipe 1 led out from the bathtub 4 is provided at one end of the heat radiation coil 12b.
3 is connected and the drain pipe 14 led out from the other end of the radiation coil 12b is connected to the bathtub 4, and the hot water in the bathtub 4 is circulated to the radiation coil 12b through the water supply pipe 13 and the drain pipe 14. Then, by rotating the fan 12a, warm air is blown out into the bathroom, and the room temperature is 40 ° C to 50 ° C.
It can be turned up to. Then, the hot water pipe 11, the warm air blowing unit 12, and the heater 5
The temperature of the room is 40 ℃ to 50 ℃ and the humidity is 70%.
The heating means 2 for adjusting the above is formed. Here, the control of the indoor temperature is performed by feedback with an indoor temperature sensor (not shown).

However, the person who uses the sauna is mat 6
Sitting in a comfortable posture, the heat of the mat 6 as the heat applying means 1 is directly applied to the human body a to heat the body by heat conduction. Then, the temperature of the atmosphere in the room is 40 ° C. by the heating means 2.
Since the temperature is -50 ° C and the humidity is 70% or more, the body can sweat easily and can be comfortably used by sick people, old people and children. Here, since sweating is performed directly by warming the human body a with the mat 6, it is not necessary to raise the temperature in the room so much.

FIG. 2 shows another embodiment in which the radiant heat from the wall surface can be used more effectively. In this structure, the hot water panel 15 in which the hot water pipe 11 is embedded is arranged at a position as close as possible to the mat 6, so that radiant heat is radiated at a position close to the human body a. The human body a can be heated more effectively. The hot water panel 15 is movable, and is usually stored in a form in which it is in close contact with the wall surface of the bathroom main body 3, and when used as a sauna, it is designed to be used by partitioning the room.

In the above-mentioned embodiment, heating the room,
Although the case of performing humidification with hot water has been described, the present invention is not limited to this, and means other than hot water may be used.

[0014]

As described above, the sauna of the present invention is provided with a heat applying means for directly heating the human body by heat conduction and an atmosphere in the room of 40 ° C. to 50 ° C. and a humidity of 70% or more. Since it is equipped with a heating means for adjusting, the human body is efficiently warmed by radiant heat by directly heating the human body by heat conduction by the heat applying means, and the indoor air can be heated like a dry sauna. There is no need to heat up, and it is possible to heat the human body directly to perspire even if the humidity does not have to be high, unlike the steam type. Unlike the steam type steam filling the room with steam, the steam can be sweated easily, quickly and comfortably.
