All saunas aren't created equally in terms of comfort, so it's essential to evaluate each model carefully.

The sauna dimensions and number of seats also play a big role, you need a big enough sauna to comfortably fit you and your guests as crammed saunas can make an unpleasant experience.

2. Heat Output

One of the biggest decisions to make when choosing which sauna to take home is whether you want a traditional or infrared sauna. The biggest factors to consider include the heat. While traditional saunas can reach temperatures up to 195° F, it is easy to become uncomfortable and overwhelmed. Infrared saunas in the other hand range from 120° to 150° F, and while it's much lower temperatures the infrared technology allows heat to travel deeper in the body causing a more powerful sweat.
