So what does the “E” stand for?
A 3 person sauna just sounds awkward.
I guess it all depends on configuration.
I bet it will still work with just one person or two.
Why does the 3 person unit state 220/50hz? Is this a European model? Then below it says you need a 110/20amp outlet? Something is not adding up right…
Is this far infared?
I was wondering the same thing and that was before my first cup of coffee.
If the 220v/50Hz is a misprint and this is for the US, the spec on the 3 person unit state 110v/20amps.
Most typical household outlets are 15amp so the 3 person unit may require some wiring changes. The 2 person unit only draws 15amps.
I doubt it’s a European model. I would assume it requires a 220v/30a hook-up just like any other home appliance with large, electrically-powered heating elements (electric oven/stove, non-gas clothes dryer, hot tub, etc).
Edit: It is indeed a 110v/20a power source that is required. Per the product page:
“Due to the extra-large heaters used, this sauna requires 20 amps of dedicated power and you may have to add a 20 amp receptacle.”
Looks like it would make a good walk in Humidor…
You may be correct but the 3 person specs at Home Depot states 110v/20A. 50Hz is the cycle for Europe and 220v is the standard voltage for Europe. The US is 110v at 60Hz. So the 220v/50Hz may mean that the power supply on the 3 person is for Europe. Or it may just be a misprint.
I have a similar model to the ‘three person’ one. I originally wanted a hot tub and my girlfriend wanted a sauna, so…
A couple of thoughts:
- They really do get hot - almost gym hot, but it takes about 20 minutes to warm up to the point that it’s worth sitting in.
- I ended up running a dedicated wire and circuit to this - kept having circuit breakers throw on me since the original wire also shared the circuit with the treadmill and tv.
- It is really nice to ‘roast up’ in the winters (Ohio)
- These produce a dry heat and it really gets the sweat going. I always need a shower afterward.
Being able to say that you own a sauna definitely seems to score a wow factor. Would recommend - especially if you’re comfortable running a dedicated circuit.
How is this shipped? Pre-assembled via a Semi? or is there some assembly required?
I think it is ALL assembly required…
Or the worst walk in humidor of all time…
If I get one, I would look at installing it in my basement. Would it need a vent (to exterior)?
