5 Facts You Might Not Know About Infrared Sauna Kits

Sep 4, 2008
There are two types of sauna kits available, the regular steam sauna and the newer infrared sauna kits. These two types of sauna are completely different. Most people are relatively familiar with the regular sauna, but are not as much with infrared. Here are some important facts you need to know before using or purchasing an infrared sauna kit.

Mimics the Outdoors

Unlike a regular sauna infrared saunas are a dry heat, they don't use steam. In fact, they mimic the heat of the outdoors. The body reacts in a certain way when it is outside, which is different than when in steam. The infrared sauna allows your body to release the same chemicals and have the same reactions as being outside.

Can be installed anywhere

Unlike a regular steam sauna you can easily install an infrared sauna just about anywhere. The steam sauna must have access to plumbing which can be difficult in some spaces. The infrared only needs electricity, so wherever you can run wire you can install an infrared sauna kit. You can also find infrared sauna kits in a variety of sizes to fit just about any space.

Easy installation

The infrared sauna kits can be installed easily, and do not require extra precautions regarding electricity. With a regular sauna you must take into account plumbing availability since you will need access to water to create steam. Since you are using water around electricity you will also have to know quite a bit about running electrical systems. If you choose an infrared sauna you can actually just plug the sauna into the wall using your regular household electricity. You can easily have an infrared sauna kit installed in one afternoon.

They heat up faster

Since steam saunas have to heat up the steam which then heats up the room it can take up to 90 minutes for the sauna to heat up. Using infrared heat the infrared sauna can heat up in just a few minutes. This will allow you to to spend less time waiting on your sauna and more time using it. It also lets you take a sauna during times you have less time but want to relax. This makes it much more convenient, and saves money on your electric bill as well.

Penetrates deeper into the skin

Infrared is a type of light. It penetrates through the skin and allows healing and toxin release from an even deeper level than where a steam sauna reaches.

If you are thinking about purchasing one of the many available home sauna kits you should do more research to completely understand the options available and how an infrared sauna kit may fit your needs.
