Check Out a Home Sauna

Jul 31, 2008
As more and more of us are embracing healthier lifestyles, we begin looking for easier ways to achieve our goal of overall goal of excellent health. For many years, home pools and spas have been all the rage. Why purchase a membership at a health club when you can achieve the same effect in the privacy of your own home? Now, more and more health-conscious people are putting saunas into their homes. Whereas once the idea of a home sauna seemed ludicrous to all but the super-rich, these days many of us of moderate means can afford one.

Home saunas come in one of two varieties: modular or pre-cut. Pre-cut home saunas are a bit more time-consuming in their construction, as they are custom-built for your home's needs. These saunas can come in all shapes and sizes, depending only on what your specifications are. Pre-cut home sauna kits allow you to convert a single room, or part of a room, into a sauna. The kit provides you with all the wood and accessories you will need for assembly, allowing you to easily attach the assembly to your room's existing frame. Pre-cut home sauna kits need to be installed over waterproof floors, such as concrete or ceramic tile.

The more common and popular home sauna is the ready-to-assemble modular sauna kit. These home sauna kits are quite a bit easier to assemble than the pre-cut variety, allowing even the novice do-it-yourselfer the opportunity to build their own sauna. They are also great because they are easy to disassemble, allowing you to take them with you when you move. As the name implies, modular home sauna kits come in large pieces, ready for you to assemble. The kit contains wall and ceiling sections, as well as floor panels, benches, a heater, and all the other accessories necessary for your home sauna. They even come partially-wired. As with pre-cut kits, modular kits need to be installed over a waterproof floor.

When installing your home sauna, it is imperative that you exercise caution and observe all safety regulations. Never use any electrical component that is not UL-rated and make sure that all of the circuits are of the correct size. Also, if you need to do any extra wiring not provided for in the kit, make sure that it is done by a qualified electrician, or inspected by one at the very least. The door to the sauna should always open outward and should never have any locks of any kind. Also, the interior surfaces of the sauna should never be treated with any chemicals in any way, since the high heat emitted by the sauna may cause paints and other coatings to give off toxic fumes. Due to the high level of dry heat present in a sauna, you should always consult with your doctor prior to using one, and always follow all of the sauna manufacturer's specific safety and operating instructions to the letter.

For many of us, we want to live a healthier lifestyle, but we just can't motivate ourselves to go to a health club and try and get fit. For some, it's a matter of fearing to work-out in front of others. For others, it's sheer laziness and lack of motivation. A home sauna may be exactly what you need. Home saunas allow you to sweat at your own pace and start your path to a healthy lifestyle from the comfort of your own home.
