5 REASONS TO BUILD A SAUNA AT HOME
A hot sauna session after a great workout or swim can be a dream for your body, but you do not have to rely on fitness facilities or spas to reap the enumerable benefits of regular sauna use.
1. Easy to Install
Scandia’s modular saunas come pre-assembled with all parts and pieces included, just click the wall panels together. They are completely freestanding and can be installed inside or out. The gorgeous wooden exterior makes them a showcase piece to your home.
2. Low Maintenance
Saunas are notoriously low maintenance. Powered by a gas or electric heater, or wood stove, the internal temperature can rise to well over 165°F for your sauna session. At that high heat, all bacteria, viruses, and other microorganisms die off. It will be the most sanitary space in your entire home. The wood itself is strong and durable and only requires the occasional sweeping off. Depending on how often you use your sauna you should periodically apply sauna wood oil to keep the wood looking and smelling great.
3. Increase Home Value
Luxury spaces like large master baths, pools, and saunas are an enticement to new home buyers. Investing in a sauna could return financial gains if it ever comes time to sell your home. Want to take it with you? Absolutely you can. Just as it came easy-to-assemble, you can disassemble and re-assemble at your new home.
4. Health Benefits
The most easily recognizable benefits of sauna use include relaxation, muscle recovery, and improved mood. However, research has proven many lasting benefits of sauna bathing. Most impressively is the reduction of risk of cardiovascular events (i.e. heart attack, heart disease). Additionally studies have shown improved athletic performance, cognitive health, and lower blood pressure.
Much like exercise, sauna bathing has proven to be more effective the more often it is used. A study on cardiovascular health showed that those who utilized the sauna for more time (more than 11 minutes) and more frequently (more than four times a week) showed an even larger reduced risk of heart problems. Spend less time at the gym and more time relaxing in the comfort of your own home.
