How to Choose the Best 2-Person Infrared Sauna
Here is a straightforward guide to buying the right 2-person infrared sauna for your home.
Ceramic or Rod Heaters
Infrared saunas are designed with either ceramic or rod heaters. Saunas with poor quality heaters will require you to spend more time in the sauna for you to achieve the health benefits so it’s important that you choose a sauna with high-quality heaters.
Rod heaters emit heat that is sometimes too broad so it’s not very effective. They use a reflector tray to compensate for the significant amount of infrared heat so that it’s not directly hitting your body. Ceramic rods, on the other hand, have small infrared emission surface so if you choose a 2-person infrared sauna with ceramic heaters, you need to check the size of the panels. It should be large enough to cover the entire area.
The best type of heaters for a 2-person infrared sauna is the carbon heaters. They are large and flexible and extremely safe to use. It’s more efficient to use carbon heaters and you also save on energy costs. The heating panels should also surround the entire area.
Look for a sauna with thick walls because these allow better insulation. The temperature will be evenly distributed and easier to control.
Most heaters would have to be replaced after some time, costing you more money in the long run. There are sauna models that don’t require you to change the heaters or the heating panels and they are definitely more practical though they may cost more initially.
Check the seats and the surface area to know if you will be comfortable sitting there for a prolonged period of time.
You need to have an easy to reach and easy to understand control panel so you can easily adjust the temperature.
Check for the warranty that comes with your sauna to ensure that you get the most of your money.
