I’ve been thinking a lot about buying my own personal infrared sauna at home. Lately, I’ve really been looking to get fit and healthy and along the process, I got introduced to using saunas. Man, it’s one of the best things that one can experience.
I have some feelings of regret that I never tried it before but now, I’m just happy that I got to experience it and it really changed my approach to living healthy.
Since I really enjoy these sauna baths and I can feel all the health benefits that come with it, I want to have my own personal sauna at home. Yes, it is a luxury item that can be very expensive but for me, the health benefits and the convenience of having one at my own home trumps the high cost that comes with it.
Right now, I am in the process of researching and looking up different sits such as choicesaunas.com on how to buy the best infrared sauna without making too many mistakes that may cost a lot later on. Here are some of my findings that I want to share to fellow sauna lovers who are thinking of getting their own.
Buy from established companies and manufacturers
Infrared saunas can get very expensive but you should understand that this is considered a luxury item and with it comes an expensive price tag. A good quality sauna that comes with premium materials and good customer support comes with a price and this is actually a good thing. Always choose companies or manufacturers that have been in business for a considerable amount of time because this proves that they provide good service and good quality saunas.
Your budget is an important factor but you should also be flexible because in this industry, there are a lot of companies or manufacturers that go out of business quick. If you choose to buy a cheap one from a relatively unknown company, you are risking a lot. For one, they might go out of business and if your sauna ever has issues, you are left to deal with it yourself and this can get expensive fast.
Contact the manufacturer first before placing your order
Once you’ve chosen a manufacturer to buy from, don’t just order straightaway, contact them first and ask questions before doing so.
This is very important because having a conversation with them will give you a sense of how they handle and treat their customers. If they are willing to answer every question you have with detailed explanations, it is a very good sign.
Some questions that you may want to ask about are the following:
- Warranty terms
- Material quality
- Certifications (safety and electrical)
- Shipping and other fees
- Promos and discounts and more
Get the correct size
The size of your sauna is a very important factor that you need to consider because if it is too small, it might not be comfortable and if it is too big, it won’t be very efficient. If you are buying a sauna for 1 person, a 1 person sauna is a good option provided that you are of normal size and by normal size I mean you are not too tall, too overweight or just big in general. If you are unsure, it helps that you look at the dimensions of the sauna and go from there.
If you are buying for multiple persons, don’t look at the number of people that the manufacturer says can fit, instead, look at the dimensions because frankly, some of the 2 people saunas that I’ve looked at seem too cramped for 2 people. This also goes for 3, 4 or more people.
The size of the sauna is very important because you want to be able to relax and if it is too cramped inside, you won’t be able to. It’s better that it’s a bit bigger than being too small.
