How Can You Be Sure That You’ve Picked the Best Infrared Sauna for Your Needs?

Posted by

There are lots of people who are eager to get in on the infrared sauna craze, but how can you be sure that you’ve picked the best infrared sauna from the many varieties that are on the market? This handy guide will make the selection process much easier for you, and you’ll soon be enjoying the full benefits of one of these saunas in the comfort of your home.

Take a “Test Drive”

It’s unlikely that you’ll be able to pick the best infrared sauna based only on online customer reviews.  Until you try each variety of sauna for yourself, you won’t be sure that you’re purchasing the one that’s right for you.

That’s why you should visit stores to try out some different models in person.  You’ll find that local dealers will let you try before you buy. However, if that’s not a possibility for you, you can opt to get one installed in your home that comes with a trial period and a money-back guarantee. That way, you can keep trying out saunas until you’re completely satisfied with your selection.

Wood Choices

The kind of wood a sauna is made of makes a great difference in how long it’s going to last and how much you should be willing to pay for it. There are infrared saunas you can get extremely cheap, but they are not likely to be the best quality.

When considering the sauna’s wood, you should get a fine-grained wood sauna instead of one with coarse grain, as this second variety will peel over time.  In addition, vertical grain hemlock and western red cedar are great choices as either one of these should last you for years if you take good care of it.  Watch out for saunas that come from Myanmar (previously known as Burma) because they are almost always of inferior quality.  The wood used in this part of the world is second-rate, and harvesting it hurts the rainforests.

Superior Construction

Construction also matters when you are picking the best infrared sauna.  In a good quality sauna, the joints should be tightly fitted, and there should be visible screws holding the panels being held together instead of glue.  When glue is being used instead of detailed craftsmanship to seal the joints, it is a telltale indication that you’re dealing with an inferior infrared sauna model.

Saunas that use glue can also be hazards to the user’s health because when you use one of these saunas, part of the air you’re breathing will contain residue from the heated glue.

The quality of your infrared sauna matters.  And you owe it to yourself to get the best one on the market rather than a cheap imitation.  In the short term you will save money if you buy an inferior sauna, but you risk harm to yourself as well. Make a smart decision when you shop for saunas by trying multiple saunas before you buy, and don’t let price be the only factor in your decision.
