Learn About Shopping for Infrared Saunas

How do infrared saunas work?

Unlike traditional saunas, which heat the air in the cabin, infrared saunas use infrared light to create heat. This light enters the body, heating it from within. As your body temperature rises, your skin sweats. Since the saunas use light, they usually operate at lower temperatures than steam saunas. This makes them accessible for people who can?t tolerate high-heat environments.

What are some features of infrared saunas?

Infrared saunas come in a wide range of sizes and styles, from simple models to luxurious sauna houses. Features you can find on these saunas include:

  • Glass doors: These clear doors allow natural light to enter the sauna so you can use them without electric lights. They also make smaller saunas feel more spacious. Some glass doors come with privacy glass for public spaces.
  • Integrated sound system: Saunas with built-in speakers allow you to connect your phone or music player so you can listen to music as you unwind.
  • Energy-efficient panels: These panels use less electricity to reduce your per-session cost and create a smaller ecological footprint.
  • LED control panels: With these interior panels, you can operate every feature of the sauna from the inside.
  • Snap-together design: Saunas with this feature come in pieces that snap together for fast, easy assembly.
What are some styles of infrared saunas?

Infrared saunas come in various styles. Many models come in one of these three main construction types:

  • Classic sauna cabin: Sauna cabins are small, enclosed structures that are usually designed to hold one or two people. Cabins are also available in larger sizes. Typically, these models are engineered for indoor use.
  • Portable: Portable models are designed to collapse into a smaller package so you can take your sauna on vacation or use it as part of a traveling health business. Often, these models are designed to help with weight loss or removing toxins.
  • Sauna house: Sauna houses are similar to cabins, but they are often larger. Many models are designed to be used outdoors as standalone units.
