What Do You Need To Know Before You Buy A Sauna?

Aug 15, 2008
A sauna is usually a pretty big investment. A good investment no doubt at all, but not a cheap one. It's quite possible to find a cheap sauna, but everything is relative. Before you buy a sauna there's a few things you need to know.

You'll need to know what type you'll be buying. Spend some time researching the different types of sauna available, and make sure you've tried them out. You absolutely must decide whether you need a regular (hot rock or Finnish) or an infrared sauna. There's a big difference between the 2 and also a difference in what you pay.

Some people swear by infared saunas as the newest thing in saunas, and others still prefer the old type, the hot rock sauna. It's essential that you spend some time trying out different types and comparing so that when you come to buy you'll get exactly what you want and need.

It's essential to work out what size of sauna you need as well. There are plenty of people who buy a large sauna for a crowd and never come close to filling it. There's no point in buying a sauna that will fit a football team when it's only you and your husband who will ever use it.

So before you buy work out who will be using it, and how many people will be in it at any one time. If it's just you and him, then don't waste your money on a sauna that's going to leave the both of you rattling around in it. And of course a big sauna is not a cheap sauna, the bigger the most expensive. So if you're looking for a cheap sauna go small.

Take your time and research the size that you'll need. Work out how much space you need for the number of people who will occupy it at any one time. If you're both overweight and looking to lose weight then you'll both probably need more space than 2 kids. Use you common sense when it comes to space.

If you're looking for a cheap sauna then you'll probably want to spend some time looking at infrared saunas, as long as you like how they feel. And infrared can be a good choice for someone looking for a cheap sauna, and it's also possible to buy small portable infrared saunas, which are much cheaper than a fixed one.

You must know how your sauna is to be connected. There are all sorts of issues connected with electricity supply, plumbing where you'll be buying a wet sauna with a water supply where you'll need plumbing installed for supply and removal of water.

You'll also need to research space availability. Some saunas are quite large and will take up a lot of space, and often these are heavy users of plumbing and related resources, so make sure before you buy that you know exactly what size you need, where it will go and what resources it needs.

Are you a handyman? One of the best ways of getting a cheap sauna is to build it yourself. Of course you can build it from scratch but you really need to know what you're doing to build a sauna from scratch, but it's perfectly possible to buy a kit where you assemble it from pre made components. If you're looking to buy a cheap sauna this is a good option for some people who are confident with assembly.

For many the cost of a full blown hot rock (Finnish) sauna is too high. You can pay anywhere up to or well over $4000 for a good sauna, and although it might be a wonderful sauna it's beyond the resources of many. However there are a number of ways of sourcing good quality cheap saunas online that might surprise you.

You can buy brand new saunas at well below retail if you know where to look and do your homework.

It takes a little longer but if you do the work to find a cheap sauna you can pocket the difference, or else buy a better one than you could afford if you bought at retail. It always pays to do some research. Find out what your requirements are then then look online for a cheap sauna and pocket the change.
