Should I Get a Hot Tub or a Home Sauna?

If you are asking yourself, should I get a hot tub or a home sauna, the answer is clear. Why not both? There are benefits to both a hot tub and a sauna that are unmatched. If you can only get one at the moment and are having a hard time deciding, allow us to lay out the benefits of each. From there, we’ll let you decide.


If you are looking for ultimate relaxation, then nothing can beat a hot tub. The warm water and the massaging jets make the hot tub perfect for a relaxing getaway or a romantic evening. On the other hand, saunas offer incomparable health benefits such as improved immune system functions, skin cleansing, detoxification, and depression and anxiety relief. 

Not all hot tubs and saunas are the same though. With the sauna, you can choose a traditional sauna or an infrared sauna. Each offers different benefits. So, when choosing between a hot tub and a home sauna, make sure you consider each of the different options.


It’s hard to compare the maintenance of the hot tub versus the home sauna. The hot tub offers small chores when it comes to maintenance, but they need to be done routinely. You should be testing the waters weekly or more often to make sure the chemical balance is correct. 

Home saunas don’t require frequent care. The most you need to do is wipe them down after each use. Some light sanding and deep cleaning are required every year to help with any staining. This will help your sauna look and perform like new.


Hot tub pricing and home sauna pricing varies quite a bit. Obviously, the larger the size and the more luxurious the features will run a bit more, but they will also deliver bigger benefits. When considering buying a hot tub or a sauna, think about what you are looking for. If you want an entertaining space, maybe you should get one that fits more people and offers things like infrared heating in a sauna or underwater lighting and water features in a hot tub. On the other hand, if you are looking for something simple that completes a simple task, then you can expect the price tag to be much smaller.


Hot tub and sauna installation at home can be completed with the help of a professional. We can let you know if special electrical options are required, depending on your excellent choice of hot tub or sauna. Can you imagine what it will be like to have a hot tub or sauna installed at your own home? It will be your own little piece of heaven.
