Comparing and Contrasting IR Sauna Heaters

Infrared, or IR saunas are becoming more and more popular as people are trying to find ways to relax and increase their energy. IR saunas can also help you lose weight and improve the health and appearance of your skin. The heater is the powerhouse of an IR sauna, and the top heaters on the market today can warm your IR sauna to a relaxing 140 degree Fahrenheit temperature without using much energy.

Your Choice of Heater Materials

Heaters primarily come in carbon and ceramic models. Carbon is the material choice of the day since it is lightweight, has a high resistance to heat, and provides a more even heating experience throughout the sauna. This full body heating lets you have a more relaxing experience. Carbon heaters have a higher upfront cost than a ceramic model, but they also use less energy on average. Carbon also heats up quickly for those who do not have a full 30 minutes to devout for a sauna session.

Ceramic heaters, on the other hand, are still found in many heaters on the market. It is a more cost-efficient alternative to a carbon heater that is recommended for spot treatments, since it has a high concentration of heat that emanates near the source. They also heat up quickly with their intensely focused heat. Ceramic heaters can help you save some money upfront so you can splurge on additional features.
