It can be too costly to purchase an infrared sauna cabin, particularly if you’re not convinced whether you’ll benefit from it. Infrared sauna pads, bags or domes require you to lie for half an hour in one location, and are not inexpensive either. There is, however, another way-to make yourself an infrared sauna.About this Neosauna
I want to inform you in this article regarding two methods of constructing a sauna completely using your own hands, without prefabricated sets. It can be a fairly inexpensive option, and you can enjoy the sauna at a affordable price in your home setting. Before purchasing an infrared sauna cabin, you can create it to show yourself that infrarot can offer some value to your safety, or it can be a nice way to get a home sauna when you don’t have a lot of free room at home.
Before I go into the explanations I would like to alert you about protection. Building a sauna will entail performing some electrical wiring yourself. Infrared heaters used in a sauna normally need high power-as much as 1000 Watt. If you don’t know what you’re doing, please don’t attempt to create a sauna yourself. Better ask or employ someone who has electricity expertise to do it for you. If you set up a sauna in a bathroom bear in mind that it has strict electrical wiring protection specifications as a wet spot.
Jim Clements discusses in his article The FIR Sauna Bathroom, in which he demonstrates how to use two heaters installed in a fairly limited space (511 feet suggested) to set up a home sauna. He uses THMI’s two 500 Watt 9 Amp infrarot heaters, claiming these heaters offer a close experience as in a sauna cabin in infrared. Aside from wattage, he provides no precise details regarding these heaters and doesn’t know whether any other type of heaters would work for this sauna system. I think it’s necessary not to have too much wattage in the heaters (not over 600 Watt).
These two heaters are placed on each side of the space (5-6 feet apart). You can either use 20 Amp outlet or use extension cord from every other outlet in your house to break the current from two 15 Amp outlets, as they are 9 Amps. Make sure the extension cord will accommodate an infrared heater’s power needs in a secure manner.
At the preheating point Jim advises turning heaters to a door or wall for quicker ventilation. Due to the possibility of inflammation, do not position heaters along the walls or other items either. The heating period is typically higher than for an infrarot sauna bed, which may be about 30 minutes and an hour. You may use it as a traditional infrarot sauna when the space is hot, only go and sweat over there. You will want to put a towel under the door and not use ventilation because it will enable air to move down to lower room temperature. You don’t actually have to use a sauna bathroom; you can use any appropriate area, or you can create a special enclosure.
