All the products that we have looked at in this list have a very high level of quality, not only in their materials but also in their design and the additional features that you are going to have and the overall level of their build too.

In terms of the materials, one wood that we often see used is hemlock wood and there are a few good reasons for this as it is a strong material that is going to be able to cope with the heat that is produced from a regular sauna. It also makes the product easy to install too.

The glass of the sauna is also going to be important as everything in there needs to be able to cope with those high temperatures. The glass of these products does that very well and will help to ensure that the product is going to be able to last for a very long time.

The user reviews are a good source to check the quality of these products as you will be able to see from people who have been using the sauna for a very long time. This will give you a great indication of the overall build quality and how long it’s going to last.

Another way to give yourself peace of mind that you are buying a quality product is to see if there is a good warranty it offered. If there is a good warranty, this will gives you confidence that you are getting a highly durable product and also you know you’ll be protected if anything fails.

How Many People Will Be Using It

A large factor in your buying decision is going to be in respect to how many people are going to be using the sauna. This obviously affects the overall size that you need and also the amount of energy that is going to be required to bring it to the right temperature.

Even if there are two people in your household who will plan on using the sauna, you might not want to use it at the same time and therefore getting a sauna that has the capacity to hold one person would be fine, but often people will want bigger than this if they have space.

You have to be careful about this though, as the descriptions can often be a little misleading. A sauna that claims to be able to sit two people could mean that two average-sized people would be able to sit uncomfortably close to each other while probably touching.

If you are looking at getting a regular sauna for multiple people then it’s a good idea to make sure that it’s going to be able to fit everyone that you want in a comfortable and easy way. This depends a lot on personal preference, but it is a good idea to check it out.

As mentioned there, a few of these products come with their own sound system which can be a great feature, allowing you to connect to your music and play it through high-quality speakers. This will make it easier and more comfortable to listen to your favorite, songs, podcast, or audiobook.

It’s also a good idea to see how the sauna will increase your blood flow and your heart rate too, and this could be easily done with a waterproof Fitbit or a regular waterproof fitness tracker. This will be able to provide you with some interesting information while you are there. It’s also a good idea to have a waterproof watch to time your stay.

Another great feature to have with these infrared saunas is multi-colored LED lights which can help to set up a nice ambiance and allow you to relax even more. These are usually easily controlled, allowing you to put on your favorite setting.


If the installation is going to be a key issue for you then looking into a portable sauna would be another great option. Thankfully though, the majority of these infrared saunas are very easy to install as long as you carefully follow the instructions.

A tongue and groove construction is often provided, which will allow you to easily slot in the pieces together. If you are struggling then it might be a good idea to ask for help from someone that you know or call a local handyman.
