There is no right or wrong sauna temperature as everyone has a different comfort level, and taking into account other factors such as age, pre-existing medical conditions, and overall health.
Whatever your heat preference, you are buying a sauna in order to sweat. And the more you can sweat, the better your body can detox to rid itself of unwanted materials and improve general circulation.The recommended temperature is between 120 and 140 F. If a sauna is following safety guidelines, the temperature control will not allow settings above 140 F, beware otherwise.
How hot will the sauna get? How long does it take to heat up my infrared sauna?
Your Infrared sauna operating temperature will vary depending on the room temperature. Generally speaking, if the room temperature is over 64°F the operating temperature should be between 122-140°F. The sizes of the saunas play a major role in how fast the sauna can reach certain temperature. Average pre heating time is 30-45 mins, while a 4 person corner unit could take a little bit longer than a 2 person sauna.
The ideal temperature for an infrared sauna is between 110°F to 130°F. Remember: temperature is not important - the fact that you are receiving far infrared heat is.
Here are some helpful tips for getting the most of your infrared session:
First of all, once the sauna reaches the temperature set by the user,the heaters will not work at full capacity because they will cycle on and off once they reach their set temperature. We recommend that you start using the sauna before it reaches the set temperature in order for you to get the most infrared benefits and to maximize the output of the heaters.
If you set the sauna to 130 (an ideal setting), then you should start using it around 115 or 120 while the heaters at full capacity, you will sweat more this way. Another option is to set the sauna to maximum temperature setting of 140 which will make the heaters operate at full capacity most of the time, you may not reach 140F during your sauna session but that is not important, getting the most infrared benefits is more important.
