Choosing which traditional sauna for sale you wish to enjoy can be a headache at first. More than likely, you have asked yourself:
How do I choose the best traditional sauna for my needs?
What steps will help me select the right sauna?
Picking the best sauna can be as simple as envisioning your sessions ahead of time. By knowing your relaxation location, and having an idea of how many members you will relax with, you will surely enjoy each therapeutic session. Here is more information on how to make the selection that is best for your needs.
HOW DOES A TRADITIONAL SAUNA WORK?
Saunas that operate traditionally take after the very first saunas ever used. Here’s how they work:
These sauna rooms are small or medium in size. (Heating a large room, like an arena or dome, would be difficult.) They have outside structures that are crafted using special durable wood.
Inside, sauna rocks get hot with the use of a heating source. Water is then drizzled over the hot rocks to make steam. This steam is called “loyly” by Finnish sauna enthusiasts.
This specific type of sauna uses either a wood-burning heater or an electric heater.
During each session, the temperature reaches between 175 to 194 degrees Fahrenheit.
HOW DO I CHOOSE A TRADITIONAL SAUNA?
There are quite a few matters to consider as you make your choice. Start with these simple questions:
Where do you want to relax?
How many others will use your sauna with you?
Do you have health improvement goals in mind?
Here are 4 tips that will make your decision-making process much easier.
1. INDOOR OR OUTDOOR?
Do you see your sauna as a staple inside the house? Do you like the idea of stepping outside for tranquility better? One of the most important aspects is deciding on whether to place your sauna indoors or outdoors.
There are several reasons why a sauna inside the house is enjoyable. With convenience at the top of the list, you will surely enjoy your sauna placement decision. As you build your own regular sauna session routine, you will notice health improvements too. Here are a few benefits of putting your sauna inside the home:
You increase your home value with your health investment. Your sauna provides decades of enjoyment. There is little upkeep required, allowing you to enjoy the luxury of relaxing with little effort. If you happen to get rid of your house later down the road, maintaining the sauna will not be a problem for future owners.
You get to relax right at home. Enjoy much-needed healing with no inconvenience.
You can use empty home space. Make the most of each room without disrupting the overall flow. (Ex.: basement, garage, attic)
Avoid a cluttered yard with a sauna in the house. This works when homes have little or no yard space.
While some homes have extra rooms, most do not. With the sauna outside, avoid clearing space for your new investment. You will also save valuable inside space.
With a traditional sauna kit, walls come pre-assembled with straightforward instructions. Video footage is also included. Assemble your sauna outside the home with ease.
Typical yard extras sport wear and tear over time. (The old faithful storage shed, for example.) An outdoor sauna is aesthetically pleasing. It increases your property value.
You may be distracted by the hustle and bustle of the home with the sauna inside. A sauna outdoors provides alone time without leaving your property.
Pool owners can use the sauna as a pool house as well. To enjoy health benefits like the Nordic Cycle, take a dip between sauna sessions.
ARE SAUNAS INSIDE AND OUTSIDE EQUAL?
Saunas indoors and saunas outdoors both function the same.
Both saunas give the same health benefits.
Both options are comfortable.
You can customize either one.
They are both durable and will last for decades with proper care.
2. DECIDE ON SAUNA SIZE
The size of your sauna is also very important. Picking a sauna that is too small is not wise. You and your guests will be cramped as you try to relax.
A sauna that is too big for you drains unnecessary power. Your spending costs will be higher. Note that prices will vary based on sauna size. Here is a slight breakdown of various sauna sizes:
1 Person Sauna: If you want to enjoy heat therapy solo, this is your choice. Fits well in tight, small areas.
2-3 Person Sauna: Perfect for relaxing with a spouse or close loved one. Invite an extra friend or family member if desired.
4-6 Person Sauna: With this selection, you can engage in therapeutic bliss with a larger group.
8 Person Sauna: This is the largest option on the market. If you often host a group, this option is best for you. Everyone can move and relax comfortably.
3. SAUNA HEATER - WOOD-BURNING OR ELECTRIC?
To create heat, your sauna will require a sauna heater to function. Saunas that work traditionally use either a wood-burning stove or an electric heater to heat sauna stones. Wood-burning stoves give wood fire saunas their own uniqueness. They are known for providing a more realistic feel. Electric stoves serve the same purpose as well.
While both provide a comforting experience, they work differently. They also come with their own set of advantages. Here is some information:
You need a chimney for safe use. A chimney kit is included for your convenience.
Keep firewood available for use. Try to use wood that you have a lot of on hand. Hardwoods work best.
Controlling the temperature will become easier with familiarity.
Heat guards are included in the packaging for your safety.
Be sure to hire a licensed electrician to properly install electrical wiring.
Controls are included. This makes it easier to find the temperature you want.
They come with wall enclosures. This lowers your risk of inhaling smoke.
4. CHOOSE THE EXACT LOCATION OF YOUR SAUNA BEFOREHAND FOR THE BEST RESULTS.
If you place your sauna in the home, here are a few spots that are great for your project:
Sauna In Basement
The basement is a wonderful place to put your sauna. It offers seclusion and saves room space.
Avoid a damp basement.
Cold and drastic temperature changes are okay. The wood, electrical components, and other features can handle such.
Warm-up time takes longer with no insulation.
Placing Your Sauna in the Garage
Your garage is also an amazing place for the sauna. Here is why you will enjoy this option:
Enjoy the benefits of using the space as a changing room and cool down area at the same time. This gives you the chance to double down on your investment.
With your sauna out of the way in the garage, you will have more than enough space for free movement.
Instead of having to install a drain, you can use a drip board.
With just two or three vents, you will have more than enough fresh air.
Placing Your Sauna on the Second Floor
If you want to put your sauna upstairs on the 2nd floor, or even higher, this is more common than you think. You are probably concerned and wondering about safety features. You will not put your home in any danger if you decide to do so. Pre-built sauna kits are lightweight. This makes transportation easy as can be.
Luckily, even if you have already placed your sauna downstairs, this does not mean that it is stuck there. Breaking your sauna down and moving takes way less time than putting it together. Re-assembly will be even easier because you have already experienced putting the sauna together initially.
If you place your sauna outside the home, here are your options:
DIY (Do It Yourself) - completed by gathering all materials on your own
Using an Old Building - start with a shed, garage, or log cabin that is no longer in use. Turn the building into the outside structure of your sauna
Pre-Built Sauna - provides the required materials and many parts already put together (easiest option)
