Buying an infrared sauna cabin can be too pricey, particularly in case you’re now not sure you may gain from it. Infrared sauna blankets, baggage or domes pressure you to lie on one vicinity for half an hour and are not reasonably-priced too. However, another alternative exists – it’s miles to do an infrared sauna yourself.

In this newsletter I need to tell you about approaches to build a sauna absolutely together with your own hands, without prefabricated kits. It may be a distinctly cheap solution, so that you can enjoy a sauna in your private home environment for an inexpensive charge. You can construct it to prove yourself that infrared will supply some benefit for your fitness earlier than shopping for an infrared sauna cabin, or it is able to be a handy way to have a home sauna if you have now not tons free area at your home.

Before I go into reasons I want to provide you with a warning approximately protection. Building a sauna yourself can also involve performing some electric wiring. Infrared heaters used in a sauna typically have high power necessities – as lots as 1000 Watt. Please, do now not try to build sauna your self in case you do not know what you’re doing.

Infrared sauna with infrared heaters

First way to installation a domestic sauna is described with the aid of Jim Clements in his article The Bathroom for FIR Sauna, wherein he explains how to use infrared warmers placed in a extraordinarily small room (five×11 ft recommended). He makes use of two 500 Watt 9 Amp infrared heaters from THMI, announcing that those heaters give similar enjoy as in an infrared sauna cabin. He gives no unique statistics approximately this heaters apart from wattage and do not know if another emblem of heaters will fit for this sauna set-up. I think it’s miles important that warmers should now not have too excessive wattage (not above 600 Watt).

These warmers must be positioned at the infrared lamps both aspects of the room (5-6 feet aside). As they’re nine Amp you must both use 20 Amp outlet or use extension wire from some different outlet in your house to cut up cutting-edge between two 15 Amp shops. Make sure that extension cord can competently handle electricity requirements of an infrared heater.
