Are Infrared Saunas Expensive To Run?

As mentioned above, infrared saunas are much cheaper to run than traditional saunas. How much does it cost to run an infrared sauna in terms of electricity costs will depend on a few different factors:

  • How often you use it, how long your sessions are and what temperature you set
  • What is your local cost per kilowatt-hour is
  • When you use it (peak or off-peak times)
  • The size of your sauna

To find out how much it will cost to run your infrared sauna multiply your local cost per kilowatt-hour (you can find this on your power bill) by the sauna’s kilowatt rating and how much you will use your infrared sauna. Infrared saunas have very low maintenance requirements too, so ongoing maintenance costs are also low.

Weighing Up The Benefits vs Cost

When considering how much it cost to run an infrared sauna, it’s important to think about all the benefits you’ll experience using your sauna.

Infrared saunas work by heating the body through a safe wavelength of light. This creates a cardiovascular workout for the body and removes heavy metals and toxins. Health benefits can include a reduction in pain & inflammation, and improved cardiovascular health because infrared saunas activate the parasympathetic nervous system (which helps to keep us calm and relaxed), they can also assist with sleep. Better quality sleep is not only beneficial for your physical health but also for your mental health too. Infrared sauna sessions can help with weight loss too as your heart rate increases so it burns calories.
