Mining energyAfter walking in the bitter cold, warming up in a jacuzzi, sauna or infrared cabin is music to many people's ears. But how much energy do these health apps consume in your home? Mijnenergie.be Makes balance.

One jacuzzi is not like the other. For example, insulation plays an important role. Well-insulated appliances keep water warmer longer, so your energy bill increases less quickly. The location of the jacuzzi also plays a role. If it is sheltered or under a roof, it will cool more slowly.
Of course, content also makes a difference. The Dutch Tourism Association ANWB estimates the daily consumption to maintain the temperature of a standard 1200 liter model at around 6 kWh. This is 1.97 euros per day. If the device stays in operation all year, you will pay €717.23 at the end of the trip. Although the final cost will depend greatly on the frequency of use. The more frequently and for a longer period of time the protective cover is removed, the greater the energy consumption.
The lower the price of electricity, the less you pay, of course: Click here to compare suppliers and get the best prices.
A day of relaxation in the sauna, but in your own home. Sounds good, right? In addition, many people attribute saunas to their beneficial effects on health. Just like in a spa, there are also many options available for installation at home. The most famous and most traditional of them is the Finnish sauna. In a Finnish sauna, a heater heats the air. The temperature in a traditional Finnish sauna is around 90°C.
According to various manufacturers, the average Finnish sauna uses approximately 8 kilowatt-hours per session, based on an hour of heating and an hour of sitting in it. You then spend €2.62 per sauna session in energy costs. If you enjoy a sauna session three times a week, you will pay €408.72 per year in energy costs.
Winter outside: This is best done through your Belgian energy contract.
Those who cannot tolerate the heat of a traditional sauna may prefer an infrared sauna. With lower temperatures, you can create the same relaxing effect and the same health benefits. Since the infrared sauna does not heat the air, but the objects and people in the sauna, the energy consumption is much lower than the Finnish sauna. The Dutch website redactieconsumption.nl estimates the consumption of an infrared sauna at 2.25 kilowatt-hours per hour, which equates to a cost of 0.74 euros. On an annual basis, with an average of three sessions per week, you pay €114.95.
Naturally, the size of the cabin and the choice of materials affect the consumption costs of both the sauna and the infrared cabin. When purchasing such a health facility, it is always a good idea to ask the agent about the impact of the equipment on your energy bill.
