If you have decided an infrared sauna is for you, you need to consider what kind of infrared heater to purchase from saunas.com. Most infrared sauna rooms come with their own heater; for example, SaunaGen Infrared Sauna rooms come with a heater that runs on 110 volts.
If you are interested in the details of infrared heaters, here are some questions to ask:
• What is the EMF? Since infrared saunas give off electromagnetic rays, a manufacturer should be able to tell you what the EMF reading is for their heater. A lower EMF is better
• What is the size? Unlike with steam generators, the size of an infrared heater does not matter.
• How hot does the heater get? Most infrared saunas work at a lower temperature than other saunas, so find out what the max temperature is in the infrared sauna
Also consider a combination infrared sauna/steam sauna from a manufacturer like Polar Sauna or the Caatu Series by Sauna Warehouse.
