  • Infrared Saunas: Ceramic vs Carbon Fiber


    Confused about the options available to you when buying an infrared sauna or infrared heater? What's the difference between bio ceramic tube infrared and carbon fiber infrared?

    An infrared sauna uses infrared heaters to emit infrared light, which is experienced as radiant heat. This is unlike traditional saunas, which heat the body indirectly via air or steam. Many people find infrared saunas to be more comfortable than traditional saunas, as the body is heated but the temperature of the air stays cooler and more comfortable to breathe.

    The two main types of infrared saunas are ceramic tube infrared saunas and carbon fiber infrared saunas. There are key differences between the two types. Understanding the differences will help you select the sauna that best fits your needs.

    Ceramic tube heaters have long, skinny tubes that emit infrared ray waves in all directions. Reflectors are used to bounce the IR waves from the backside of the tubes into the sauna. The heat distribution tends to be uneven, with more heat closer to the heater and less heat the farther out you go. However, ceramic tube saunas tend to be cheaper than carbon fiber saunas and they heat up more quickly.

    Carbon fiber infrared saunas have panels made of synthetic carbon materials that convert electricity to energy and radiate it throughout the air. They are slightly more expensive than ceramic tube infrared saunas. The heat in carbon infrared saunas distributes evenly, with no hotter or cooler spots. They take a little longer to heat up than ceramic infrared saunas, but the carbon panels are much more durable than the fragile ceramic rods. Carbon fiber infrared saunas are also more energy efficient, resulting in lower operation costs.

    While it seems like carbon fiber infrared saunas are the clear winner, it really comes down to preference. The ceramic infrared saunas have been around longer, and so many people are more familiar with them. They are also easier to repair. Add to that the lower cost and they may be a better choice.

  • Ultra-Low-EMF Carbon Fiber FAR Infrared Saunas


    Saunasandstuff.com is very happy to announce the addition of Ultra-Low-EMF Carbon Fiber FAR Infrared Saunas to our inventory of high-quality home saunas! We know that is a bit of a mouthful to say, and you may not be familiar with all the terms. We want our customers to know all about sauna technology so they can choose the sauna that's right for them. Let's break it down!

    In reverse order:


    A sauna is a small room or house designed for people to experience heat sessions. There are two kinds of sauna: wet and dry. Wet saunas have a cooler ambient temperature than dry saunas prominently feature steam as the conductor of heat. Dry saunas are much warmer than wet saunas and avoid the use of steam, relying on the temperature alone to induce sweating.

    FAR Infrared

    Originally invented in Finland, the modern sauna can be sorted into two heating types: traditional and infrared. Traditional heat warms the air, which then warms the body. With infrared heat, the core of the body is heated first.

    Carbon Fiber

    Infrared heaters can be made of many types of materials, including charcoal, ceramic, and carbon fiber. Carbon fiber is composed of thin carbon plates that distribute heat evenly. With carbon fiber heaters, more infrared is emitted more efficiently. They also do not require glues or plastics, which eliminates fumes from those materials.


    Many infrared heaters emit electromagnetic fields (EMF) as a by-product of being electrically charged objects. Over time, exposure to EMFs can cause health issues such as headaches, nausea, depression, anxiety, cataracts, eye irritation, cancer, and more. Ultra-low-EMF means the heating device was designed in such a way to eliminate almost all of the EMF emissions, making the heater very safe to use regularly.

  • Infrared Heaters and Fireplaces


    Infrared room heaters and fireplaces are currently very popular. These innovative products are gaining popularity due to the safe, beneficial heat they deliver. In fact, the sought-after design of the fireplace room heater in particular is showing up in more and more homes across the country each year.

    These infrared quartz heaters are a revolutionary portable heat source design. Infrared heat is safe, healthy, and therapeutic, offering many benefits for users beyond the average room heater. Quality infrared room heaters should never feel hot to the touch. They do not emit any fumes or harmful matter into the air like typical home heating systems, and quartz room heaters do not dehydrate the air. Some even sanitize or purify the air!

    Electrically heated infrared heaters radiate up to 86 percent of their input as radiant energy. Nearly all the electrical energy input is converted into infrared radiant heat in the filament and directed onto the product by reflectors. Infrared heaters are much more energy efficient than most space heaters, utilizing most of the electricity and energy that is emitted.

    Infrared heater designs are constantly evolving, and you can now choose anywhere from micro portable heaters to beautiful infrared fireplace room installations. Both will keep you warm during the colder months, or simply give you the excuse to cozy up with that special someone.

    Portable room heaters are perfect for single places like offices, garages, workshops, basements, and cool spots in your home. They work in collaboration with an in-home heating system, heating rooms that are not used often in order to conserve energy. If used collectively, you can cut some of your heating bills in half by strategically utilizing infrared room heaters in some unused rooms or spaces within your dwelling in place of heating every room in your house.
