Myth or Fact: Learn the Truth About Infrared Saunas

The world is changing more quickly than ever before; science and technology are pushing the boundaries in almost every aspect of our lives. And this is also true of saunas. Thanks to ground-breaking innovations, it is no longer necessary to pour water over hot coals to experience the benefits of using a sauna. We can now use infrared waves to enjoy the same effect. However, advances like this can also leave people confused about what is and isn’t true about a new technology. In this post, we separate the truth from the fiction when it comes to infrared saunas.

“Infrared Saunas Are Expensive to Run”


When people read the word ‘electricity’ they often think of an energy bill. But infrared saunas are extremely energy efficient, especially when compared to a traditional, convectional heating sauna. This is because a traditional sauna heats up the air, which then heats the people inside. A Jacuzzi® Infrared Sauna heats you directly using far, mid- and near infrared waves.

To put it in perspective, one of our saunas might only cost between 25-50 cents to run per 40 minutes session. In addition, an infrared sauna takes a far shorter time to reach temperature than a traditional sauna – and some Jacuzzi® Saunas can be controlled remotely via an app, meaning it can be started in advance.

“Infrared Saunas Are More Comfortable”


As mentioned, there is no need to heat the air around you in an infrared sauna. This means that the overall temperature doesn’t need to be as high, and there’s no steam, and users report they are able to stay inside and feel more comfortable for longer.

Although saunas are generally good for people with respiratory conditions like asthma, some people find it difficult to breathe freely in a traditional sauna. Again, a Jacuzzi® Infrared Sauna is cuts this part out, offering all the same benefits without the overwhelming heat.

“They Are Difficult to Assemble”


As we touched on in a previous post, putting together a Jacuzzi® Infrared Sauna is far more straightforward than you might think. If you live within 100 km of one of our stores, one of our experts will come to your property and assemble the sauna for you, and our electricians will take care of the electrical connections.

Otherwise, you can take advantage of our intuitive and helpful modular construction method – all the pieces come glued together, you simply need to put it all together. If you’re still concerned, take heart. It takes the average person under 30 minutes to assemble a Jacuzzi® Infrared Sauna.
