Before proceeding to the process review manufacturing furnace for a bath, you need to say a few words about what will be the general points of the work and what materials and tools for this will be required.
To begin with, it must be said that the stove for a bath will be significantly different from a simple stove installed in a house. Mainly differences will be due to the functional purpose of the stove. The fact is that the construction of the furnace in the house involves its use in order to heat the room, prepare food and in some cases use it as a bed. At the same time, it is planned to use it in a room that has normal humidity indicators. And if we are talking about a stove for a bath, then in addition to heating the room, it must also heat water, and it will all happen in a room with, to put it mildly, high humidity. In addition, bath temperatures are often required at higher temperatures than from its home counterpart. These circumstances leave their imprint on the technology of work and the materials used in this process.
In order to understand in general terms How to make a brick stove for a bath need to clarify for yourself that the task is not easy. Even in villages where furnace heating is a familiar moment and without exaggeration a part of life, only a few are taken for the manufacture of stoves. The secrets of the process are transmitted orally and require a long practice. Although on the other hand, it is possible to make a simple stove with an adequate amount of knowledge and experience. Work at the same time can be divided into several stages, which should be performed consistently.
One of the most important moments of any business is preparation . In the case of installation of the stove in the bath, it is a question of what you need to purchase all the necessary materials and prepare the tools. Everything here seems to be simple, but there are some nuances:
Foundation for a brick kiln
For for the oven to stand for a long time and fulfill its functions not to do without a quality installation of a solid and even base.
Here you can add that the work related to the cement mortar can hardly be called clean, therefore, if there is a desire to protect the surface, for example, the floor, from dirt, it is necessary to cover them with film.
Laying out of the bath
After the base is ready You can start laying the next rows of bricks. By the way, a complete and detailed order of a brick furnace for a bath will differ depending on the chosen construction. Its detailed description is a separate material, below will be only an approximate procedure.
The most important element of the sauna is the stove. Nowadays, stoves-heaters are usually used for these purposes. They are brick and metal. It is difficult to say what material the stove is best of.

The heaters are also closed and open. The open heater heats up quickly, but also cools quickly. It is great for small companies. The stones in such a furnace are laid over the heap of the firebox. Their temperature can rise to 250º.
The closed heater transfers heat to the same level. It has a steam door. In the process of burning the door is closed, so that the smoke from the fire does not penetrate into the room. The door can only be opened before entering the steam room. Due to this, the temperature in the steam room warms up to 60º.
A special feature of a brick stove is that it has thick walls constructed of heat-resistant brick. The stove of this type is quite large, has a closed heater and a large amount of stones. Only solid fuel can be burned in it. As a rule, it is firewood or peat.
Among the advantages of the stove, the following should be noted:
Metal heaters heat the bath for only 1.5-2 hours. They are quite compact, so are ideal for small spaces. Kamenka usually open type. Stones are heated by the combustion chamber. In a metal furnace, you can burn different types of fuel, depending on the model.
The main advantages of the furnace:
