Frequently Asked Sauna Questions


Is my sauna delivered pre-assembled? If not, can I assemble it myself?

Our saunas are pre-fabricated and arrive unassembled on pallets. Assembly instructions are included with each sauna, and most require only a Philips head screwdriver for assembly. Generally, it takes two individuals about 4-6 hours to complete the assembly, but this time frame may vary based on the size of the sauna and your assembly experience.

Can I place my indoor sauna outdoors?

We recommend non-outdoor specific models to be enclosed and sheltered from the elements.

What types of flooring are suitable for indoor saunas?

Almost any surface works well, with the exception of carpet.

What types of flooring are suitable for outdoor saunas?

It needs to be strong enough to support the weight of the sauna, the people inside, and potentially the weight of ice and snow in winter, depending on your location.

Here are a few options for what you can place an outdoor sauna on:

  1. Concrete Slab: A concrete slab is an excellent base for an outdoor sauna. It provides a firm, level surface that is resistant to moisture and rot. It also spreads the weight of the sauna evenly, reducing the risk of sinking or tilting.
  2. Paved Patio: Pavers are also a good option for a sauna base. They provide a firm and level surface, and they can also be quite attractive. However, it's important to make sure the pavers are properly installed and leveled to prevent any movement.
  3. Deck: If you're placing the sauna on a deck, ensure the deck is strong enough to support the weight. You may need to reinforce the deck, or place the sauna near a load-bearing post.
  4. Crushed Stone or Gravel: These materials can provide good drainage and a solid base for a sauna. You'll need to create a bordered area to contain the material and ensure it's leveled off before installing the sauna. However, it may not be as stable as a hard surface like concrete.
  5. Wooden Platform: A pressure-treated wooden platform can also be a good option, as long as it is sturdy and level. Keep in mind that wood can decay over time, especially in damp conditions.

Whichever base you choose, it's important to ensure it's level, as an uneven base can cause stress to the structure of the sauna, leading to damage over time. Additionally, consider the location of your sauna for easy access, potential views, and privacy.

What are the electrical requirements for a Sauna?

The saunas we carry are designed for easy assembly and integration into your home. The electrical requirements are on par with many typical household appliances. Smaller models utilize a standard 15-amp, 120-volt outlet, so you can plug them directly into a common wall outlet. Larger models, however, might require a 20-amp, 120-volt outlet. In less frequent cases, some models may need a 30-amp, 240-volt circuit.

Preparing your home for a sauna is a standard task that a certified electrician can easily manage. Similar to setting up a dishwasher or an air conditioner, they'll establish a dedicated circuit. The associated cost usually aligns with other routine household electrical installations. For an accurate quote tailored to your specific circumstances, call/email a few local electrician and ask "how much does it cost to setup a dedicated 20-amp, 120-volt outlet".

Sauna Facts

What temperatures do your saunas reach?

Traditional saunas usually achieve temperatures up to 190° F, whereas infrared saunas reach up to 145° F.

What distinguishes an infrared sauna from a steam sauna?

Infrared saunas emit infrared light absorbed as radiant heat directly by your skin. This direct warmth provides deep, soothing effects on muscles and joints, promoting relaxation and recovery. Although their temperature peaks at about 145°F, it's the direct, penetrating heat that creates an effective and comfortable sauna experience.

Traditional saunas, however, heat the air to around 190°F, stimulating deep sweating and detoxification. Pouring water on sauna stones generates steam, adding humidity for an invigorating sauna experience.

In essence, the lower temperature of infrared saunas can still deliver a potent sauna experience due to direct heat absorption. Whether you prefer the deep, direct warmth of an infrared sauna or the intense, humid heat of a traditional sauna, both enrich your wellness routine in different ways. To explore these unique benefits further, our detailed blog post provides an in-depth comparison.

In this blog post, we discuss the key differences between the two types. In brief, infrared saunas are equipped with several infrared heaters that emit infrared rays, directly warming your body. They do not heat the air inside the sauna, reaching only about 145° F.

On the other hand, traditional saunas utilize an electric heater or wood-burning stove to heat the air within the sauna enclosure. Sauna stones are placed atop the heater or stove, and pouring water over these stones generates steam that increases humidity and heats the sauna further. Traditional saunas generally reach around 190° F, although some users may heat theirs above 200° F.

What is the cost to run a Sauna?

To estimate the cost of running a Sauna, you need to know its power rating in kilowatts (kW) and the cost of electricity in your area.

Saunas typically range from 1.5 to 2.5 kW for their smaller saunas (1-3 persons), and up to 3.0 kW for larger ones (4+ persons). Let's consider an example with a sauna using 2.0 kW.

Assuming the average cost of electricity is $0.13 per kilowatt-hour (kWh) and you use your sauna for one hour each day, the cost of running your sauna would be:

2.0 kW * 1 hour * $0.13 per kWh = $0.26

So, it would cost roughly 26 cents for each hour of use. Over a month (30 days), this adds up to $7.80.

Remember, this is a rough estimate. The actual cost can vary based on the specific model of your sauna, your local electricity rates, and how frequently and how long you use the sauna.

What is EMF?

EMF stands for electromagnetic field, the physical field produced by the movement of electrically charged particles. Both "Low EMF" and "Near-Zero EMF" are terms used to describe environments with reduced exposure to electromagnetic radiation, but they have slightly different meanings.

Low EMF typically refers to environments where the levels of electromagnetic radiation are reduced compared to typical levels in our daily lives, such as in homes or workplaces. This can be achieved by reducing the use of electronic devices, using shielding materials to block EMF, or designing buildings with EMF-reducing features.

Near-zero EMF, on the other hand, typically refers to environments where the levels of electromagnetic radiation are extremely low, approaching or reaching zero. This is often achieved by using specialized equipment, such as Faraday cages or shielded rooms, to completely block or neutralize EMF.

What is the difference between FAR and Full Spectrum?

In the world of infrared saunas, "near", "far", and "full spectrum" refer to different wavelengths of infrared light:

  1. Near-Infrared: Use the shortest infrared wavelengths, which are absorbed just below the skin's surface, promoting healing and rejuvenation. NIR is often associated with benefits such as skin renewal, wound healing, and enhanced cell health.
  2. Far-Infrared: Use the longest infrared wavelengths, penetrating deep into the body to promote a detoxifying sweat. These types of saunas are renowned for supporting detoxification, weight loss, and cardiovascular health.
  3. Full Spectrum: These saunas utilize the entire infrared spectrum — near, mid, and far-infrared wavelengths. As a result, they offer a comprehensive range of benefits from all infrared types, deeply penetrating tissues to aid in detoxification, pain relief, circulation improvement, and potentially weight loss.

When choosing a sauna, consider your personal health goals and consult with a healthcare provider to determine the type of infrared sauna that would be most beneficial for you.
