How Much Does A Sauna Cost? Best Infrared Sauna Pricing On The Planet

Content may contain affiliate links
In short, an infrared sauna costs between $900 – $4,500 dollars. There are different types of saunas and a wide variety of price ranges, but for most home saunas for residential applications, most wooden stand up far infrared sauna cost between $2,700 – $4,999 dollars. Cheaper portable saunas like the tent saunas you zip yourself up in, small compact personal steam saunas (or infrared) run only a couple hundred dollars (usually under $500). You can also buy inexpensive infrared saunas from Home Depot, Amazon, etc… for under $1,000 – $2,000 dollars, but they may not be low emf, low voc, or have good build quality. If that is important to you, you may like other infrared sauna brands on the Certified Sauna List.

Looking for the best pricing on an infrared sauna, and tired of every sauna company forcing you to sign up for their email list just get a price quote? Yeah, I was too! This isn’t your average sauna pricing page, where there’s nothing more than an email signup form you get after a Google search. I put this blog post together with the pricing estimates I was quoted when I was looking to buy an infrared sauna the first time in 2017.

Since it was such a hassle listening to the sauna sales people go on and on about a bunch of bullshit, not once asking what my sauna needs were, (they just talked and talked and talked some more) I wanted to at least write up a quick average… so you know what to expect from each company without having to call them and deal with pesky salespeople like I did.

Update – 02/10/19 – These are the 3 best sauna brands that tested the best

Fun Fact – Did you know that the whole reason I started reviewing saunas on my blog, is because one of the most popular sauna detox groups on the planet tried to bait and switch me with sauna pricing? Yep, you know the one I’m talking about… why do you think no prices are publicly disclosed, and you have to “message him for details” in order to… get. any. details. Heh, don’t make me laugh. If it was such a good deal, why not just tell everyone about it out in the open? Yep, you guessed right… because it wasn’t a good deal, and it was the exact same fucking price from the company directly when I spoke to them. It’s called a bait and switch folks, and it pissed me off enough, to where I emailed the top 8 sauna companies the very next day, and was determined to put a stop to this bullshit. I told every single one of them I was running a low emf sauna contest, to which most didn’t even respond (including Clearlight, they were the first company I emailed) since I wasn’t a health blogger prior to this, and had no credibility in the sauna industry at the time. Little did they know, I would spend an endless amount of time, energy, and money to get to the bottom of what a well made sauna or good value really was.

I’m sure a lot of these sauna companies won’t be happy about this, but I don’t care… I don’t believe in doing the bait and switch where no one will tell you a price without giving up your phone number, email, address, and which butt cheek has a birthmark on it. Sauna companies regularly hound the absolute shit out of people with daily emails, phone calls, etc… just like they did to me. Which I think it unethical, and a disservice to the industry and customers in my opinion, but anything to make a sale right? At least that’s the way I felt, which is why I never bought anything from those pushy sauna companies. And to think I was ready to spend $7k that day…

To force you to hand over your personal info just to see a price list in 2018, is about as insane as giving someone your pin number at the ATM. You know the harassment is coming shortly thereafter…

Most Popular Infrared Saunas For Sale

Here are the pricing averages for each sauna brand, based on what I was given when I called each one to buy:

Sunlighten Sauna Cost / Pricing Averages:

M Pulse 2 person: $6,500 + Shipping

Signature 2 person: $3,400 + Shipping

  • Note – I did not go with one of these. Sales people were very aggressive, and the emf levels seem higher than they claim based on what I can find on YouTube.

Clearlight Saunas Cost / Pricing Averages:

Clearlight Sanctuary 2: $4,600 + $500 Shipping

Clearlight Premier IS-2: $3,999

2021 Jacuzzi Clearlight Infrared Sauna Pricing Update:

JNH Lifestyles Infrared Sauna Pricing

JNH Sauna Ensi No EMF Model: $2,500 Free Shipping On Amazon

Dynamic Sauna – From Costco Infrared Sauna Pricing

Dynamic Barcelona 1 – 2 Person Infrared Sauna Price: $999.00

Therasauna Ceramic Far Infrared Pricing Costs

Therasauna Classic – $3,100

  • I bought this Therasauna from Home Depot using some credit card points. I paid $3,100 roughly, and reviewed it here. Afterward, Therasauna threatened to sue me since some are Made In The USA and some are not.

HealthMate Sauna Pricing

Healthmate Enrich Mate 2: $4,199

Sauna Space NIR Sauna Pricing / Portable Sauna Tent

Sauna Space Near Infrared Pocket Sauna: $2,999

  • Note – this is the “near infrared” sauna that my functional medicine practitioner was recommending I buy. This seemed nuts to spend thousands of dollars on a tent, 4 bulbs, and a stick frame. Didn’t buy one, went with far infrared instead… and happy I did.
  • This sauna also used to only cost $1,299 — not sure how that tripled.

Sun Stream Saunas Evolve 360 – Pricing

Sunstream Evolve Mini: $1,795

Sun Stream Classic 2: $2,495

Sun Stream Evolve 10: $2,795

I own two different Sun Stream Evovle 360 saunas in different sizes, which you can see the reviews for the Evolve 10 here and the Evolve 15 here. You can find the most current Sun Stream Infrared Sauna Evolve 360 price list in pdf version here.

  • Note – I no longer recommend this brand, and replaced it last month with a lower EMF/VOC recommendation for the same price. Prices have also increased over $500 on almost every model, which no longer make them a better value like I was saying in my YouTube videos. The owner has asked that I take down the, which I thought was fair since I used to promote them.

How Much Does An Infrared Sauna Cost On Average?

On average, and infrared sauna for your home costs between $999 – $3,500 dollars. Some larger models that seat 4 or more people, can cost over $5,000.

Cheap portable saunas typically cost anywhere from $200 – $1,200 dollars.

What’s A Good Price On A Home Sauna?

Based on everything I’ve been able to buy, around $2,900 dollars is a good price for a well built, low emf, low voc, home sauna that will last a lifetime.

Some cheaper wooden saunas on Amazon, Home Depot, Wayfair, and Costco definitely cost less. But based on my findings, you cannot trust the EMF claims, some have very high VOC’s and formaldehyde, and build quality from the Amazon saunas is definitely very poor.

  1. Hi Jean!

    Great price right!? Much better solution than one of those sauna tents or portable dome saunas… I think anyway. Might be a bit small for a person of my size, so I ordered the next size up just fyi. But I love the idea of safe low emf heaters packed in a tight space, so you absorb the maximum amount of infrared in the shortest time while you’re in there. Less heat loss in a smaller cabin, is a nice bonus too! 🙂

  2. What is your thought on a competitor who states: Because the three heating mechanisms within our full spectrum heaters operate independently, you can program them to generate any combination of NIR, MIR, and FIR heat. Do you feel that the option of NIR, MIR, and FIR are ideal for therapeutic treatment of chronic ailments? Or any sauna would benefit and the all the hype is to get people to pay more out of pocket for something they don’t really need?

  3. Would you please compare the differences and pricing with 3 person and which one u recommend
    1 Clearlight
    2 radiant
    3 Sunlighten

    • Hi Christy,

      This is pretty much impossible without you calling to get a quote with shipping. (it matters where you are located)

      Some will offer “free shipping” (it’s getting subsidized somewhere) and others will have a set amount for it depending on how close you are.
