Do Home Saunas Use A Lot Of Electricity?

The good news is that in addition to heating your body at a much more comfortable temperature, infrared saunas are much cheaper to run than traditional saunas and use minimal electricity.

The factors that impact how much power does an infrared sauna use include:

  • How often it is used, how long your sauna sessions are and how high the temperature is set
  • What is your local cost per kilowatt-hour is
  • When you use your infrared sauna (e.g. peak or off-peak electricity times)
  • The size of your sauna

To find out exactly how much power an infrared sauna use, multiply your local cost per kilowatt-hour (this can usually be found on your power bill) by the saunas kilowatt rating and how much you will use your infrared sauna.

On average, if you use your sauna three times a week electricity usage can be as low as $2* per week. So, when you consider the health & well-being benefits (infrared saunas have been shown to reduce pain & inflammation, improve cardiovascular health, aid weight loss and improve sleep) you can see why they are so popular!

*based on 30c per KWh and sauna rated at 1.9KW used for an hour 3 times per week
