  • Installing a New Sauna: Indoors or Outdoors?


    If you're tired of going to your local fitness center or spa and sharing the sauna with perfect strangers, it might be time to purchase a sauna for your home. As you consider the saunas for sale in our online inventory, it is important that you don't jump into the decision without thinking about what type of sauna best fits your home. There are multiple factors to consider, not the least of which is deciding whether you want to install an indoor or outdoor sauna.

    Overriding Considerations
    Whether you are leaning toward the indoor or outdoor sauna for sale, there are installation requirements that you should keep in mind that impact both types of saunas. The most important factors are water supply, electrical supply, and space to accommodate the new sauna. Limited space is often the primary factor impacting indoor saunas, while electrical and water supply lines often make or break the viability of outdoor saunas.

    The Case for Indoor Saunas
    Selecting the indoor sauna for sale that you've been looking at ensures you'll be able to use your new retreat any time of day, any day of the year. Additionally, it is common to convert an indoor bathroom (or a portion of that existing space) into a sauna. The benefit of an indoor unit compared to an outdoor unit is the ability to use existing electrical and water supply lines to support your indoor sauna. On top of that, you won't have to pour any new foundations to install a sauna in your home.

    Keep in mind that an indoor sauna results in the loss of space in your home, the need for proper ventilation, and difficulty creating proper drainage for your spa. This doesn't mean that an indoor sauna is a bad idea, but rather, that you should keep these factors in mind as you design the space within your home that will house your indoor sauna.

    The Case for Outdoor Saunas
    Whether you live in a warm-weather climate or a cold-weather climate, that sauna for sale that you're considering could make a great addition to your backyard. Building an outdoor sauna adds to the theme of a larger backyard space, and prevents the loss of space inside your home. Additionally, you can build an outdoor sauna of any size or shape you desire. Rather than making drastic changes to an indoor space, you can easily add ventilation and drainage to accommodate your outdoor sauna.

    Before you begin work on an outdoor sauna, read these few tips to help the process go smoother. For starters, evaluate the feasibility and cost of running water and electrical supply lines to your new sauna. Also, you'll need to pour a foundation and insulate the unit against the elements.

    Cost Considerations
    Generally speaking, indoor saunas are less expensive because you already have the space and supply lines available. An outdoor sauna requires greater construction and preparation costs. It is possible to cut down those costs by purchasing an outdoor sauna kit for sale. The prefabrication of sauna kits eliminates some of the construction costs associated with an outdoor unit.

    Whichever direction you go, take the time to analyze the feasibility of installing a new sauna in your home. Indoor and outdoor units have different benefits and drawbacks, so weigh them carefully before purchasing that new sauna for sale.




  • What is an Infrared Sauna?


    If you have spent any time at a commercial spa, you may have seen an infrared sauna and wondered what makes it different from a traditional model. If you have been thinking about installing a sauna in your own home or patio, you may wonder whether the benefits of an infrared sauna are worth the extra cost. The answer depends on a number of factors, including your budget, what you need from a sauna and your own personal taste.

    What is an Infrared Sauna?

    Unlike a traditional sauna, an infrared sauna uses light to create heat. A traditional sauna includes a heating unit that warms up the air and creates the relaxing and soothing steam that everyone associates with the spa experience.  An infrared sauna also heats the air inside the enclosed space, but it uses light to do so instead of a traditional heating unit.

    Infrared saunas are sometimes called far saunas. That may be a strange term, but the word far simply refers to where the waves fall on the light spectrum. Infrared is at the far end of the light spectrum, hence the alternate term for an infrared sauna.

    What Are the Benefits of an Infrared Sauna?

    While any sauna is good for your health, infrared saunas have a number of important health benefits. If you are looking for a great way to relax and unwind after a long day, there is nothing like an infrared sauna to make your tight neck feel looser and your muscles feel more relaxed.

    In fact infrared saunas are so good at relaxing muscles that many sports teams use them as part of their training. Relaxing in an infrared sauna is a great way to unwind after a heavy workout, and the sauna treatment can even prevent muscle soreness and fatigue. Regular use of an infrared sauna can prevent harmful muscle strains and help you get more out of every trip to the gym.

    The regular use of an infrared sauna can also help with your weight loss regimen. You already know that an infrared sauna can relieve muscle soreness and make exercise more comfortable, but the impact on your muscles can also make your metabolism more efficient. You may find that your body is better at burning fat and building muscle after using a combination of infrared sauna therapy and regular exercise.

    Sauna use can also detoxify the body and make it easier to rid your system of common toxins found in the food we eat, the beverages we drink and the environment we live in. Detoxifying the body can be a great way to lose weight, enjoy better health and just feel better, and an infrared sauna can speed up that detox process.

    Using an infrared sauna may also be good for your skin. The heated air and increased sweat the infrared sauna provides will open your pores and help clean out the gunk that accumulates there. From old makeup to environmental toxins, your skin is constantly under assault. Regular use of an infrared sauna can clean out your pores and undo the damage of the day.

    With all these benefits, it is easy to see why so many people are turning to the power of an in-home infrared sauna. Whether you need to relax and unwind after a hard day at work or build your muscles for a sports career, having an infrared sauna in your home can make your life easier.
