Nordic Infrared Sauna FAQ

Sauna bathing promotes clear, healthy skin,
and relaxes body & mind


A Sauna is an insulated room built of softwood such as ceder and aspen. A heater which is capable of heating the room to about 180 ° F using stones will produce a light steam when a ladle full of water is poured over them. A Sauna is relatively dry at about 20-25% average. A steam bath would be 100% humidity.

Sauna is a heat-generating product, & because of this nature, selecting the right wood is very important in building a sauna. If cheap wood is used, it may bend or deteriorate in the future.

We use only center cut Canadian Western Red Cedar wood inside & out of the unit for unmatched beauty & durability. Canadian Western Red Cedar is considered the best wood to build a sauna because of its uniform and fine grained texture combined with a palette of warm, mellow tones. It produces natural oil and other extractives that act as preservatives to protect the wood from insect attacks and decay-causing fungi. Beauty aside, its cellular structure creates interior air spaces that give it an insulation value higher than most woods.

Other manufacturers normally purchase there wood from a lumber dealer. This makes it extremely hard for them to select the best quality center cut wood. At Nordic Sauna, we only select the best center cut because we get our wood straight from the source.

All of our infrared sauna heaters are made by Emerson Electric in the U.S., and are 100% UL-approved. They consist of a ceramic heater core coated with incoloy, a metal alloy effective in high temperature applications. The incoloy coating distributes the heat evenly throughout the heater, ensuring a consistent far infrared wavelength. The heater housing, in conjunction with the heater, maximizes far infrared generation towards the front of the sauna while minimizing any energy loss through the back of the sauna. Our heaters are specially designed to evenly distribute far infrared rays & to have an almost infinite lifetime. The large reflecting panels placed behind the heaters are designed to reflect the specific far infrared wavelengths emitted from our heaters for maximum results. Also, thanks to their robust structure while providing the optimum far infrared ray, our heaters have the life expectancy of 15+ years compared to that of 2 to 3 years in other types of heaters. Our new M-Type heaters are proven to emit minimum 6 to 7 microns as wavelength.
You can place your sauna wherever you want. You can even place your sauna outside with the purchase of an optional cover. Please see owner’s manual for safety instructions when you want to place your sauna outside.
Nordic Sauna Infrared sauna units are designed to heat the entire room up to 170 º F within a short amount of time while consuming the least electricity. Our 120V models consume 1660W to 2150W, which is almost the same as a hair dryer. On average, your monthly electricity bill would go up by less than $5 if you have a 30-min session several times a week.
