Compare sauna installation costs

Longing to relax in a sauna in the comfort and privacy of your own home? Afraid of how much an installation like that might cost? saunas come in a range of sizes and styles to suit any budget. Want a home sauna but not sure where to start? Regardless of the size or design of your home, we'll help you find the best sauna installers, offering the best services at the lowest prices.

What is a Sauna?

A sauna is a small room or free standing structure designed for experiencing wet or dry heat sessions. Saunas originated in Finland but have since become a global phenomenon and a common feature of fitness and wellness centres. Saunas promote sweating in an environment typically heated to between 70 and 100 degree Celsius. Saunas promote relaxation of tired or injured muscles and can also be a social affair with larger saunas accommodating ten or more people.

Types of Saunas

Traditional Finnish saunas are rarely seen outside of the Nordic countries; however, there are numerous modern designs to suit any home.

  1. Traditional Nordic - Designed borrowing from the Finnish tradition, these saunas are made from top quality wood, usually knotted pine, and come in a variety of sizes. Fitted and bespoke designs are usually available. These types of saunas usually make use of the traditional stove system where electrically heated stoves are doused with water to produce steam.
  2. Bio Saunas - Bio saunas are generally a gentler option as they do not usually get as hot as traditional saunas. These saunas are less aggressive but will still cause you to perspire, and often have increased humidity although the temperature remains closer to 40 or 50 degrees. The use of essential oils and aroma therapy is possible in these saunas because of the lower temperature, which some find less overwhelming.
  3. Infra-red Saunas - Infra-red saunas are becoming increasingly popular in homes. Infra-red saunas work by emitting radiant heat from specially designed infra-red heaters. The heat from these heaters is absorbed directly through the skin unlike traditional heating systems which warm up the air and surfaces within the sauna.

The Benefits of a Sauna

  • Relaxation - heat and humidity help ease pain associated with stressed and injured muscles. Time in the sauna can also help alleviate mental stress.
  • Detox - perspiring is a great way to eliminate toxins through the skin, especially for those who cannot sweat during exercise for health reasons.
  • Circulation - the heat of the sauna promotes circulation without putting stress on the body.
  • Arthritis - saunas can alleviate pain and stiffness in those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis.

Sauna Installation Costs

The cost of saunas depends on a number of factors including the size and style of the sauna, the materials used for sauna construction, the labour involved the installation, and any additional requirements such as adjusting the existing plumbing and electrics. Should the existing bathroom be too small to accommodate a sauna, renovations can be made but this will likely affect the price as well.

Your sauna questions answered

How much space do I need for an indoor sauna?

Most saunas require 25 square feet to be installed, about the size of a washroom, although larger saunas obviously require more room.

Do I need any special plumbing for a sauna?

You don't need any special plumbing. A water-resistant floor, such as tiles or concrete, is all that is required although some people do have drains installed for washing.

Are saunas safe for children and the elderly to use?

Yes, although both should probably be supervised while doing so. For added protection, install handrails in your sauna.

Can I add special lighting and speakers to my sauna?

Absolutely, and many people do exactly that in order to enjoy their sauna to the fullest.

How large should my home sauna be?

A home sauna for one or two people can be around .9 x 1.2 metres. Larger ones that are approximately 1.2 x 1.8 metres are perfect for three or four people.
