When most people decide to purchase an infrared sauna they begin the process of educating themselves on the benefits of infrared therapy. Once they make the decision to purchase a sauna the next decision to make is where they will put it. Usually a customer visualizes a wooden cabin placed inside their home not realizing outdoor infrared sauna cabins even exist. Depending upon the size of the interior space an outdoor sauna is not only possible but enables the customer to expand usable space for their new sauna.
There Are Certain Things to Consider When Putting Your Infrared Sauna Outside
The main things to consider when placing your infrared sauna outside are climate, sauna construction, and protection from water damage. Wherever you live you are bound to have some form of inclement weather—some places more than others. It may be just rain, some mild heat and wind. However, it could also be ice, snow, sleet, sideways rain, hail, etc.. You need to have this in mind when placing your infrared sauna outside.
The more protected your sauna is the longer it will hold up. It is my personal recommendation that the sauna is placed underneath a porch or overhang as snow (which turns to ice) piles up on top of the sauna. Additionally, if you live in a place with a lot of snow and a very cold climate, it might not be the best idea to place your sauna outside. This is because all of the sauna’s elements remain at the same temperature as the air (while the sauna remains off, which it will 23 hours a day). When the elements are freezing cold, it will take double or triple the time to heat up to 110 degrees. There are even cases in northern Michigan and the Northeast where the sauna won’t heat up properly in the dead of winter. This is critical to understand as I’ve gotten calls from customers who can’t understand why their sauna is not heating up in -20 degree F temperatures!
