Sand is loose and easier to penetrate. Dirt is often compacted and there for all the dirt needs to heat up as there is not air spaces between the particles as in sand. It is like a brick oven, in relation to the dirt. Once it is hot it will retain the heat longer as if it is cool it takes longer to heat.
