What’s the difference between a steam sauna and infrared sauna?

As opposed to steam saunas, which heat the body with a moist heat, infrared works by heating the body directly with dry heat. Infrared heat creates a cardiovascular workout on the body while removing heavy metals and toxins, and benefits enjoyed include reduced pain and stress, better sleep and muscle recovery, and improved weight and energy.

How do I care for my Premium, Full Spectrum, Lite or City Compact infrared sauna?

Our indoor infrared saunas can last years with the right care. We recommended to apply a coat of our KUNOS Natural Oil Sealer on the backrest, timber, bench base and wherever your body touches every six to twelve months. Using towels on the bench and floor will help to keep the wood fresh and avoid water stains.

What maintenance does the Outdoor Barrel require?

The Outdoor Barrel infrared sauna has two main requirements for proper maintenance to keep the sauna lasting for years to come.

Giving the infrared sauna a coat of the ALIS Decking Oil on the exterior every six to twelve months will help to protect the wood from the elements.

The Outdoor infrared saunas have metal straps to keep the wood staves tight and keep the sauna held together nicely. These straps need tightening every six to twelve months as wood naturally contracts and expands. As the infrared sauna settles into place, tightening these will keep the infrared sauna sturdy and long lasting.

Is it okay to slide my infrared sauna along the floor?

Yes, it is okay to move your infrared sauna in a room like a piece of furniture. Always keep in mind the surface you are moving it on so the floor or infrared sauna itself it doesn’t get damaged. When moving your sauna along a floor, be sure to push from the base, as pushing on the sides can damage the infrared sauna.

How do I turn on my colour therapy light?

The colour therapy light has a two-step process turning it on (similar to a TV). The “Light” button on the control panel (depending on model either “Light 1” or “Light 2”) is the main power button for the light, and then the remote “— (line)” button is like the TV remote to turn it on.

Firstly, press the “Light” button on the control panel, and then try turn on the light with the remote. If this doesn’t work, repeat the process. Also make sure the remote has fresh batteries! If you need further assistance, don’t hesitate to log a service request with us.
