What to Avoid When Buying an Infrared Sauna

Saunas have already been around for thousands of years. Researchers believe that the first people to discover saunas were the Finns, and since then, it has become part of their traditions. Over the years, due to advancements in technology, people figured out a way to enjoy a sauna using infrared technology. Instead of using regular heat source, such as a fire or a stove like the conventional saunas, infrared saunas make use of infrared light.

Because of their many benefits, infrared sauna sales have surged over the past several years. If you are looking for an infrared sauna to enjoy in the comfort of your own home, make sure you don’t make these three mistakes in the process:

  1. Poor Wiring Configuration

Wires that are improperly shielded for electric and magnetic fields (EMF) and are poorly insulated will cause excessive heat in the long run, posing many safety issues. Additionally, these unsafe, exposed wires may come in contact with the wood in your sauna, causing a potential fire hazards. This is why it is important to ask your seller if their heating panel is equipped with electrical fault sensor and thermostat.

  1. Wrong Type of Wood

Before you fork over your hard-earned cash, it is important to ask what type of wood is used in the construction of the far-infrared sauna cabin. You don’t want a cabin that is warping and cracking after a few uses. To make sure you only get the best, look for a cabin that is not built from wood like Western Pine, Poplar, and Basswood as these cannot handle heat very well.

  1. Poor Customer Service

This may seem insignificant at first, but good customer service is important when shopping for your infrared sauna. Look for a responsive company that will be able to answer all of your questions to help you come to a decision.
