If you love having a sauna down at your gym, or perhaps you look forward to your occasional visit to a day spa or a spa hotel then you may have considered whether it is possible to buy a sauna heater for your home. You obviously don’t need or can accommodate a Sauna as big as the one at your favorite hotel or health club, so can you buy small sized heaters and are they affordable and energy efficient?
Why Buy a Sauna Heater for Your Home?
There are several health benefits to having a sauna and on top of that you probably enjoy having a sauna because it relaxes you after a long day at work or a hard work out as well. Because saunas reach a high temperature but also offer low humidity levels they are very effective at detoxification and removal of xenobiotics from the body, which are stored chemical waste compounds naturally found in the body. Our natural system for removing such waste from our body is sweating, so when we have a sauna and our sweat function is triggered, it prompts the process of removing such waste from our body. The skin is also detoxified as the pores open up and the sweat removes trapped dirt from the skin.
Saunas are also very effective for people with certain cardiovascular problems and also help with the mobilization of fat-soluble waste from the body. While steam rooms can also offer similar benefits, the lower humidity is often more tolerable and pleasurable for many people, and saunas also reach a higher temperature than steam rooms so are more effective.
Therapeutic benefits of a sauna are immeasurable as well, providing you with a relaxing moment when you switch off from electronic devices for a short period of time while your mind and body relax and take time to heal from a past pasted lifestyle.
Saunas are very good for blood circulation and cleanse and rejuvenate the skin through heavy sweating. They help to ease muscle tension and promote feelings of relation and well-being.
Choosing the Right Size Sauna Heater
When choosing which sauna heater to install in your new sauna, it very much depends on the capacity. Output from sauna heaters is based on the size of sauna they will heat up. So ensure you have a heater which will easily heat the sauna you have, and don’t go over the top with one that is way over what you require because you will never fully utilize it and it likely won’t be as energy efficient.
When choosing the right sauna heater also consider if there is floor space in the sauna for having a floor based sauna heater. Taking up floor space and making it harder to clean the floor in the sauna could be a decision you later regret. There are many wall mounted heaters and some of these also have remote wall mounted control panels which you can mount close to where you will be sat in your sauna.
