What to Consider When Getting an Infrared Sauna for the First Time

There are endless reasons to purchase an infrared sauna. An infrared sauna is a worthy investment for various reasons, from the value it adds to your house to its varying potential health and healing benefits. However, with so many sauna types and features available in the market, it may seem overwhelming to choose the perfect sauna that’ll fit your needs.

Fortunately, you can make a smart purchase by assessing some of the simplistic yet essential features of infrared saunas for sale. Keeping the following factors in mind will save you from hours of confusion and prevent a misguided decision when purchasing an infrared sauna.

The Sauna Company

The first step to purchasing a home sauna is choosing a reliable sauna manufacturing company. A company’s longevity and stability will indicate its knowledge and application of infrared saunas through its products. Many trusted sauna companies are 20-30 years old and are known for offering a warranty for all their saunas.

If you’re specifically buying a sauna for healing and recovering purposes, use your doctor’s endorsement to choose the right sauna company that can help with your health-related issues.

Wood Quality

A sauna’s insulation quality depends on how thick its walls are. A high-quality sauna should come with reduced operating costs, better warm-up times, and a strong structure. Avoid choosing brands with one-piece wooden walls that can flex and bend, hindering your safety during its assembly.

Choose a sauna with air-dried or kiln-dried wood that won’t crack, split, or separate after multiple heat cycles of sauna use. A good wood quality means lesser maintenance costs and a significantly enhanced sauna experience for at least ten years. 

EMF Levels

The electromagnetic field levels play a crucial role in a sauna’s health effects. EMF levels have always been high in almost every product. However, thanks to a few companies’ sustainable practices, you can now choose saunas with reduced EMF levels. Consider the lower-EMF saunas with a 3.0mG level for a safe sauna experience.

You can now also choose from ultra-low EMF saunas, especially if your kids will be using them. Many trusted companies now manufacture infrared saunas with an average EMF level of 0.05mG.

Avoid cheaply priced products because they usually have 30.0-17.0 mG EMF levels, which is extremely dangerous.
