A home sauna is an amenity of wonder. Not only can a sauna warm you up on a chilly day, but it can also benefit your physical and emotional wellbeing. Of course, if you’ve been thinking about adding a sauna to your house or backyard, you’re probably well aware of the wide range of benefits that a sauna can provide. With all of the perks that saunas offer, it’s no wonder that they are so popular. That said, once you’ve researched the benefits of regular sauna use, you’re probably left with one question: How much does a home sauna cost?
Well, there are several aspects that factor into the cost of a home sauna. When trying to work out the cost for your dream sauna, here are some important details to consider.
Traditional vs. Infrared Saunas
If you’re new to investigating saunas, you may not yet be aware that there is more than one type of sauna available. In fact, there are several. But let’s talk about two of the most popular types for at-home use: traditional and infrared. Costs can vary somewhat depending on the type of sauna you prefer, so let’s take a look at the main differences between the two.
Traditional saunas offer a humid type of heat, whereas infrared saunas provide a dry heat. In weighing your options, you should certainly give some consideration to which type of heat you prefer. Also, a traditional sauna heats your body from the outside in, while an infrared sauna heats it from the inside out.
Size and Features
Saunas come in an array of sizes and shapes. And each model has its own set of special features. In choosing the size of your home sauna, you will need to take into consideration the number of people who will typically use the sauna at one time. For instance, the Pro 6 Madison sauna comfortably seats one to two people, while the Pro 6 Rebecca model has room for three. As with most products, usually the larger the size and the more perks a sauna offers, the higher the home sauna price.
When considering the overall cost of your new sauna, you need to think about where your sauna will be located. Do you want an indoor or outdoor sauna? There are a wide range of options for both. Think about how much room you have for a sauna in both areas and how often you would use the sauna in each of those spots.
There are a few potential costs to think about when choosing your sauna location. You’ll want to give some thought to whether or not your desired location will need some modifications prior to installation (such as pouring a concrete slab for putting your outdoor sauna on or modifying your indoor space to fit your new sauna).
