Portable Saunas: What To Look For

Portable infrared saunas come in several different styles, shapes, and sizes. Some come with multiple carbon fiber heating panels while others are built with separate heating zones. Some are also meant to used while sitting down while others are meant to be used while laying on the floor. With that being said you can find the portable sauna that you need when considering each of the following aspects:

 

Heating Elements
As we mentioned above there are different avenues that portable saunas use to heat themselves. The most common is carbon fiber heating panels. These panels are what are mainly used for infrared saunas whether portable or stationary. Most often carbon fiber heating panels produce the most heat and cannot can be controlled separately.

The second option is infrared heating zones. These basically use the same technology as a carbon fiber panels, but can be controlled separately. Meaning you can make the bottom half of your body more hot while the top half is less intense. This type of heating is only available in infrared heating blankets.

 

Max Temperature
The max temperature of a portable sauna is a huge aspect to contemplate as most people want to get the hottest sauna experience possible. Most portable saunas can reach a max temperature of 150 Degrees F. With that being said there are some portable saunas that can reach higher temperatures or can reach lower ones.

One thing that you must keep in mind is that infrared saunas don’t use the same technology as traditional saunas. Instead they use infrared light to heat the surface of your skin. This heats up your body more than the surrounding area. For this reason they reach lower temperatures than traditional saunas.

 

Seated vs. Laying Down
Another aspect to think about when choosing a portable sauna is whether or not you want to be seated or you want to lay down. To most, seating is the best option as it gives you more room and space within the sauna itself. Saunas that lay you down typically are very tight to your body which is bad for people who get claustrophobic easily.

 

Sauna Size
Sauna size is another thing that determines how claustrophobic you might get while utilizing the sauna. Saunas that have you sit up usually have more room than saunas that have you lay down. There are also different sizes of sitting up saunas. In this review the 3rd option is the best choice for people who get claustrophobic or who are just generally bigger.

 

Features
That last thing to contemplate when choosing a portable sauna is the features they include. There are some saunas that have heating foot pads. This is an awesome feature that just adds to the sauna experience and gets you more hot. Other features to look for are holes for you arms, washable neck collars, pockets for your phone, and wireless remotes.

 

With that being said we hope this guide helps you when choosing the best portable infrared sauna. These awesome devices will truly impact your life in a positive way and just make you feel much better. We recommend using them on a regular basis for the best results and to always use safe sauna practices. So enjoy your sauna and have a relaxing and therapeutic experience!
