Are You Thinking About Buying A Sauna

Aug 26, 2008
There are lots of people who grew up in northern areas where having a sauna available next to a cold clear lake was a normal thing. These people think that people everywhere use a sauna on a regular basis for cleansing and relaxation. In these places no one buys a sauna, they simply build one in their backyard or go to the public saunas which are very common.

Outside of these northern areas the sauna is not a common thing at all. Many if not most people in the United States aren't aware of all the health benefits to be gained from regular sauna use. As saunas become more popular though more people are gaining a knowledge and appreciation for the health benefits that saunas present. If fact, many people are now choosing to install saunas in their homes and apartments. Sales of everything from small personal saunas to larger 3 person saunas and 4 person saunas are way up over the past few years.

These days sauna sales are a million dollar industry and the latest saunas are designed to provide the best in toxin cleansing and health benefits to the users. Many of todays saunas use infrared technology for heating so the old days of wood fires and rocks for heating are gone. There are also models that use electric, propane and gas to create the heat inside the sauna. And building a sauna has never been easier. You can put together a sauna kit in a few hours and be enjoying your sauna the same day the kit arrives.

Today's multiple person saunas are both smaller and more economical than the saunas of the past. You can easily fit one into a spare room or utility space and make it a valuable utilized space. Smaller portable saunas are very popular with those that have limited space such as city dwellers. Another really cool option is the traditional barrel sauna which is gaining in popularity as an outdoor sauna option.

When looking at the cost of the sauna you should know that prices can vary greatly. The size of the sauna, the material it's made of and the type of installation will all make a difference in the cost of your sauna. There are also upgraded features like MP3 players, top quality speakers and digital controls that can be installed that will increase the price of the sauna.
Smaller saunas are easy to do your self from a kit, however for a larger 3 person sauna or 4 person sauna you may want to consider hiring someone to do the installation. Depending on where you live and the type of install you may need to be concerned with building codes, water hookups, gas hookups and electrical connections. Because of these considerations it's sometimes better to have the installation done by a professional.

No matter what size or type of sauna you need you can easily find them online. Sauna sales online are quite common and you might find a great deal, especially at sites like eBay and Craigslist. Thanks to improvements in technology and decreases in price, now could be the perfect time to treat yourself to a new home sauna.
