Frequently asked questions
Are infrared saunas expensive to run?
There have been many studies done into the running costs of infrared saunas. It is generally accepted that operating a 3-4 person infrared sauna once or twice a week will only add a couple of hundred pounds a year extra to your electricity bill. We would say that’s fairly acceptable. Running costs for saunas are fairly low overall.
Are infrared saunas good for your skin?
Much has been said of the health benefits of saunas in general, this includes infrared. The question for many is will it help with my skin. In a certain context far infrared saunas are good for your skin. Whilst the kidneys do most of the detox work, sweating profusely does help purge the skin on any ingrained deposits such as oil and dirt.
The end result is expected to be clearer skin. In this regard infrared saunas are no different to the skin benefits you get from a traditional sauna.
How much does a bespoke infrared sauna cost?
In many respects a custom made infrared sauna is in the same cost ballpark as a traditional sauna. As you will appreciate, having a sauna bespoke built will more costly than a pre-fabricated sauna. Our guideline prices for a bespoke infrared sauna are in the region of £6,000 to £20,000. Notably, running costs are generally accepted to be around 50% cheaper than a traditional steam sauna.
