Why Invest in a Home Sauna?

Home saunas are a wonderful addition to most spaces. They offer more privacy than public saunas, and allow you to create customized experiences. If you’re still on the fence on whether you should bring a sauna to your space, consider these factors:

Therapeutic Benefits
There are emerging studies that suggest saunas provide health benefits. Harvard Health Publishing’s recent 2020 article shares that saunas benefit your heart health, as long as you practice recommended sauna safety guidelines and do not have heart disease or uncontrolled high blood pressure.

In a study published by Mayo Clinic Proceedings, research has found that “Beyond pleasure and relaxation, emerging evidence suggests that sauna bathing has several health benefits, which include reduction in the risk of vascular diseases such as high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease (CVD), stroke, and neurocognitive diseases; nonvascular conditions such as pulmonary diseases including common flu; mortality; treatment of specific skin conditions; as well as pain in conditions such as rheumatic diseases and headache.” You can learn more about this research here.

Privacy or Social Connection — You Choose
Whether you wish to relish in a quiet moment to yourself or relax while catching up with a loved one, in-home saunas give you the flexibility to enjoy your sauna session the way you prefer.

Self-Care that Fits Your Schedule
While you can certainly enjoy saunas that are available at local spas, they typically require you to make reservations weeks in advance, as well as travel time. Gym saunas are typically available without reservation, but still require you to travel back and forth. An in-home sauna, on the other hand, allows you to enjoy self-care any day of the week, even on a busy schedule. If you only have 20 minutes, you can hop in the sauna for 5 to 10 minutes quick without sacrificing other activities planned for the day.

Customized Sessions
Do you prefer sitting in hotter, dryer saunas? How about adding essential oils for aromatherapy? Having your own sauna puts you in the driver’s seat so that each session helps you unwind your way.

More Peace of Mind
The spread of germs and unsafe sanitation practices are a concern for many people when visiting public saunas. With an in-home sauna, you can be more at ease knowing strangers don’t have access to your space and that you are in control of setting the hygienic standards to keep your sauna clean.

Increased Home Value
Think of saunas as an investment. While there is a higher up-front cost, saunas pay off in the long run by enhancing your home environment and increasing its overall value.

Sauna Buying Guide
Once you’ve decided to invest in a home sauna, your next step will be to learn more about the various options available. Here’s a quick guide to help you find the best sauna to match your needs, preferences, space, and budget.

Property Restrictions
Before picking out your preferred style of sauna or considering details such as wood type, it’s first good to learn about any property restrictions that could impact your purchase decision. For example, how much space do you have inside your home or in your yard to fit a sauna? If you’re interested in having a smaller sauna, there are many location places that you can consider both inside and outside of your home — even a storage closet can be converted to fit a sauna if needed!

If you are choosing an indoor sauna, you’ll need to assess whether there is currently adequate ventilation in the area. If there isn’t proper ventilation now, don’t worry. You can make some adjustments to allow for increased airflow, such as adding an exhaust fan. For outdoor saunas, research local regulations to ensure there aren’t any legal requirements prohibiting outdoor saunas in your neighborhood. Even if you can legally have an outdoor sauna in your yard, you might need to obtain a building permit first, so make sure you have all the proper paperwork filled out before proceeding with a purchase.

No matter where you place your sauna, you’ll need to ensure that you have a flat surface and a safe and reliable source of power. The necessary electrical connection that you’ll need will depend on the sauna and heater you choose, so keep that in mind as you’re doing your research.
