Infrared saunas work to convert light directly to heat using infrared heaters. Without increasing the ambient temperature, this heat has the effect of warming nearby objects; in other words, heat is absorbed by a bath in an infrared sauna, but not by the surrounding air. Have a look at Burlington infrared saunas.

Far-infrared radiant heat (FIR) is often confused with ultraviolet (UV) radiation since the sun’s rays contain both forms of energy. However, while also having many of the advantages of natural sunlight, FIR does not harm the skin the way UV does.

What are the advantages of an infrared sauna in terms of health?
Heat penetrates deep into body tissues in infrared saunas, in a way that a typical sauna does not. For sore muscles, stiffness, and joint pain, particularly the form of chronic pain that comes from arthritis, this deep tissue warmth is great.

The infrared sauna heater warms up and is ready for use much faster than the heater of a standard sauna and uses much less energy. And since in infrared saunas, the air itself does not get hot, it is ideal for people with respiratory problems who find it unpleasant or even dangerous to go to a typical sauna. Infrared sauna bathers will also experience the sauna’s advantages at a much lower temperature than in a typical sauna.

Price, Setup and Maintenance

Infrared saunas, commonly speaking, are less costly, simpler to build, and need less maintenance than conventional saunas. They come in several sizes and are also very compact, so when there is little space available, they are a perfect option for a home sauna.

While the upfront cost of a far-infrared sauna is very fair, when it comes to installation, a lot more savings are realized. Water is not used in an infrared sauna heater, so no moisture barriers, special drainage systems or complicated electrical wiring are required. As there are no water-borne bacteria to take up residence within, cleaning is much less involved as well, and the sauna itself stays nice and dry.
