Along with our hot tubs, we also carry a range of infrared saunas that are a great addition to any workout room or basement. These saunas come boxed for a simple customer installation and require very little effort to setup compared to a steam sauna. Outlined below is a table comparing some of the benefits of a Canadian Spa Company infrared sauna to a typical steam sauna.
|Canadian Spa Infrared Sauna||Steam Sauna|
|Generated heat||Creates dry heat||Wet steam heat|
|Safety||No direct access to heating element provides a child-friendly environment||Access to hot coals is required for steam to be created|
|Power consumption||Plugs into a normal 15A circuit||Requires electrical installation as power consumption is high|
|Installation||Can easily be assembled by the customer||Comes as one unit and is difficult to transport|
|Ventilation||Infrared saunas do not have ventilation issues as it is a dry heat||Requires proper ventilation or must be used outside|
