FAQs

General Information

  • An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light experienced as radiant heat, which is absorbed directly by the skin, unlike traditional saunas that heat the air to warm the body.

  • Unlike traditional saunas that heat the air around you, infrared saunas use infrared panels to directly heat your body without warming the air. This allows for a more comfortable experience at lower temperatures.

  • Benefits include relaxation, detoxification, relief from sore muscles, improvement in sleep, reduction of joint pain, and potential help in weight loss and circulation improvement.

  • While generally safe, risks include dehydration, overheating, and the potential for worsening certain health conditions. Always consult a doctor before starting sauna therapy, especially if you have medical issues.

Usage

  • Start with 10-15 minutes per session and gradually increase to 20-30 minutes as tolerated. Always listen to your body and exit if you feel uncomfortable or dizzy.

  • Lightweight clothing or swimsuits are recommended, but you can also go in nude if privacy allows. Always sit on a towel for hygiene.

  • Yes, it's safe for most people, but it's important to stay hydrated and monitor how your body responds to daily sessions.

  • Consult with your healthcare provider before using an infrared sauna, especially if you have conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, or are pregnant.

Safety

  • Stay hydrated, limit your time inside, don't use the sauna while under the influence of alcohol, and avoid if you're feeling ill.

  • Children should use an infrared sauna only under adult supervision and for shorter periods, as they may not regulate heat as effectively as adults.

  • Pregnant women should avoid using infrared saunas due to the risks associated with significantly elevated body temperature.

  • Exit the sauna immediately if you feel dizzy, nauseous, or uncomfortable. Drink water and cool down gradually.

Features and Maintenance

  • Clean the interior surfaces with a mild, non-toxic cleaner. Air out the sauna after use to prevent moisture buildup and inspect heaters and connections periodically for maintenance needs.

  • Typically, it uses about the same amount of electricity as a hairdryer. The exact usage depends on the size and model of the sauna.

  • At least a few feet around each side of the sauna for proper air circulation and access. The size of the sauna will determine the total space needed.

Purchase and Installation

  • We offer financing plans through 3rd party lenders like Affirm and Afterpay. 

  • All of our models come with detailed instructions and can be assembled with common tools. 

  • It's recommended to add installation costs at checkout to not encounter any issues with your sauna during installation

Troubleshooting

  • Check the power source and connections. Ensure the thermostat is set correctly and inspect the heating elements for any damage. If the problem persists please reach out to us.

  • New saunas sometimes emit odors due to residual manufacturing oils and materials. These usually dissipate after a few uses. Regular cleaning can also help.

  • Ensure the control unit is properly connected and powered. If problems persist, please reach out to us
