Sauna sales data indicate online sauna sales are continuing to increase largely infrared sauna kits.
Unlike a traditional sauna an infrared models do not require an electrician, plumber and contractor to complete the sauna installation. Infrared sauna kits can be installed in most large rooms in the home. Many people choose to install them in their basement. Kits contain the infrared heat panels, door, windows and dual inside and outside digital controls, Lights and the wood for the walls, ceiling and floor. Installation is relatively fast and simple with most quality kits. It is not uncommon to assemble and install the sauna on the same day it is received.

Probably the easiest traditional sauna installation involves an outdoor barrel sauna. These large barrel shaped saunas are made just like any barrel and they come in many sizes. The smallest is about 8 feet in length and about 6 foot in diameter. The sauna stove is located at one end and the door at the other end. Installation is very easy since there is no need for a foundation. A barrel sauna sits on two or more cradles that keep it above the ground. A bung hole is located at the bottom of the sauna to drain water and other liquids out of the sauna.
A traditional barrel sauna is normally heated by a wood stove so no special electrical hookup is required. Some people will install a cold water spicket for a rinse off. The beauty of a barrel sauna is that it can be setup in an area that does not have access to plumbing or electricity. Some people use battery powered lighting and use the adjacent lake or river to rinse off.
