Jacuzzi Clearlight Infrared Saunas: Buying Guide | Audacia Decor Inc.

This is where we will discuss the most important considerations when choosing a Clearlight Infrared Saunas. There are many essential considerations when purchasing. Below is a list of the most important factors, along with an analysis of each.

Clearlight Sanctuary v/s Clearlight Premier: 4 Main Differences

The Clearlight Sanctuary Sauna line is thought of as the “higher end” and more expensive option compared to the Clearlight Premier line. However, both are exceptional infrared saunas, and each may be better for any customer; it really depends on the customer’s personal preferences. There are four important distinctions between the Clearlight Sanctuary and Clearlight Premier models. Before the differences are discussed – find below a brief chart of the different options.

The primary differences discussed below

The Spectrum of Infrared Heat

Clearlight Sanctuary saunas contain the full spectrum of infrared heat. It including near infrared heat, while the Clearlight Premier models contain only far infrared heat. Far infrared heat permeates deep into the issue of your skin benefits, while near infrared heat generates more heat. But is less absorbable for your skin, especially at a close distance. Each type of heat contains different health benefits.

As may now be apparent – both types of heat provide valuable benefits, but nevertheless, there are important differences. As mentioned prior, the Clearlight Sanctuary Saunas contain both near and far-infrared heat. While the Clearlight Premier saunas contain only far. This considered, it is possible to add a Full Spectrum Infrared Sauna Heater to your Premier sauna, which will give you the benefits of both.

Standard v/s Medical Grade Chromotherapy

The Clearlight Sanctuary saunas have Medical Grade Chromotherapy pre-installed, while the Clearlight Premier saunas have standard chromotherapy. The Medical Grade contains 96 LED Chromotherapy lights while the Standard Chromotherapy option contains 15 LED Lights. The benefits of chromotherapy include both health and cosmetic advantages.

Chromotherapy has numerous benefits – the choice of your Clearlight Infrared Sauna will depend on your personal preferences, and whether the increase in cost is worth the benefits. Importantly, the Medical Grade Chromotherapy can also be purchased as an add-on for your Clearlight Premier Sauna.

IoS Android App Functionality

The Clearlight Sanctuary Saunas are IoS and Android App compatible, while the Clearlight Premier Saunas are not. This can be a nice feature, but importantly – both the Clearlight Sanctuary and Clearlight Premier saunas both have a pre-schedule feature that permits you to turn them on up to 36 hours in advance. The only difference with the Clearlight Sanctuary is that it permits you to do so from the comfort of your own bed rather than going into the infrared sauna to set it!

Glass exterior and roof

The Clearlight Sanctuary saunas have a complete glass front, and the first half of the roof is also glass. The Premier saunas also have large glass doors – but with a wood frame. In addition, the entire roof of the Premier units is wood. While both are excellent looking saunas, with the additional glass, the Clearlight Sanctuary units do have a bit more of a modern look and feel.

Type of Sauna Wood: Cedar v/s Basswood

What may seem like a secondary consideration is actually an essential question that must be asked. Which type of wood – Cedar or Basswood for your home infrared sauna? Before we delve into specifics – why is this important? Most notably, the type of wood you choose will determine the longevity and quality of your sauna.

The obvious difference: the most obvious difference between the cedar and the basswood is the darker complexion of the cedar wood. If you prefer a darker aesthetic, this may alone be a reason to choose the best cedar. However, if you prefer a lighter wood, then the basswood may be the choice for you.

Smell: ever gone into a sauna and smelled the nice scent of wood as the sauna heats up? Yup…us too. That is the scent of fresh cedar. Many Clearlight Infrared customers will go with the cedar for this reason alone. That said, many other customers prefer a scentless sauna experience, which the basswood will provide.

Benefits of Cedar

Cedar is resistant to moisture and temperature change – meaning that, when the sauna heats up, the internal characteristics of the wood are left largely unchanged, which leads to a long-lasting sauna. There is no wood on the planet that will last longer than cedar.

The robust nature of cedar wood also makes it able to withstand harsh weather conditions (if you are purchasing an outdoor model). Additionally, cedar wood contains internal oils that are known for healing and therapeutic uses – these can aid in internal cleansing and detoxification. It is also a beautiful wood – with a light brown that will make your Clearlight Infrared Sauna stand out in any room.

Benefits of Basswood

First of all – it’s cheaper! If you are looking to save an easy $500-$600 dollars on your infrared sauna, the basswood will permit you to do so, without any significant drop in quality. Second, and perhaps more importantly, for individuals with sensitivities such as allergies and easily bothered skin – the basswood will make for an excellent choice. Basswood will have very little scent, is soft to touch, will not contain any knots – making it a clean, affordable, and long-lasting option.

Size of Sauna

Perhaps an obvious, but very important question to ask is how many people you want your sauna to hold. Some people envision themselves using the sauna for personal use, while others envision the full family taking in the infrared sauna experience!

Electrical Requirements

Each Clearlight sauna also has different electrical requirements. A standard wall plug is a 120 volt, 15 amp plug. While some of the smaller Clearlight Infrared Saunas are compatible with these plugs, many of the larger ones are not. Additionally, when you add an additional item such as a Red Light Therapy Unit or an Extra 300 Watt heater to your sauna, the electrical requirements may change.
