Things to consider when buying a Sauna:
One of the most important things to consider is the type of sauna you would want for yourself, whether you want an indoor sauna or an outdoor one. If you have enough bathroom space then you can install an indoor sauna and just take care of the ventilation and drainage system.
If you lack adequate space in your home, then outdoor sauna is a good option. You can install it in the garden or near the pool but you would need a proper foundation, insulation, power supply, and a water supply.
Type of Heat source used
The next thing to consider would be the heating source for your Sauna. There are three types of Sauna based on the heating source:
Electric Sauna– This type of sauna is popularly known as traditional sauna and generates heat by using hot rocks and water. It can reach a temperature of 195 degrees in just 30 minutes and you can create steam by sprinkling water on the hot rocks.
Carbon FAR Infrared Sauna– This type of sauna uses carbon panels to generate an infrared heat of 140 degrees in just 10 minutes and uses less electricity than other types of saunas.
Ceramic FAR Infrared Sauna– This type of sauna creates a long lasting infrared heat in just 10 minutes and are a little more expensive than the Carbon FAR Infrared saunas
Another thing to consider is the amount of voltage that your sauna will require. Most saunas require 10V or 20V of electricity which is compatible with most household’s wiring. However, if it is different than the mentioned voltage, then you might need professional wiring for your sauna to work properly.
Type of Wood
There are basically 3 types of Sauna woods:
Cedar- This type of wood is a little more expensive but perfect for an outdoor sauna as it is long-lasting and naturally resistant to mildew and insects.
Hemlock- This type of light-colored hardwood is resistant to mildew and insects and is not as aromatic as other woods, which make it a good choice for people who suffer from allergies.
Aspen- Another odorless wood type which is not as resistant to mildew as other hardwoods, aspen makes a great choice for an indoor sauna and for people with allergies.
