Best 2 Person Steam Saunas of 2022
When in the market looking for a 2 person steam sauna that is the right one for you and your home, you'll find that you have many options available. They range in style, features and price.
Steam Sauna Size
Once you've decided that a steam sauna is the way you want to go, you probably already know the approximate size you want. Most people don't want a sauna that is obtrusive in the place they want to put it, such as a bedroom or home gym. So a smaller profile steam sauna is desired and the 2 person models are perfect.
Whether placing it indoors in a bedroom, basement or home gym, or outdoors such as in the backyard, on a patio, or in the garage, space is always a consideration. Allow for a few inches all the way around the sauna cabin for good air circulation. This is more important for steam saunas than infrared.
This is where the 2 person steam sauna can shine the most. It won't take up very much room, and will still provide you all the steam sauna benefits you're looking for.
Steam Sauna Heaters
Steam saunas utilize either an electric heater or a wood-burning stove for heat. Both stove or heater types have rocks that sit in or on them and absorb the heat and radiate it out into the sauna cabin. You can splash a bit of water on the rocks to create the amount of steam you want.
The steam raises the temperature in the sauna cabin and it can get pretty intense. Without the water on the rocks, the heat and the air in the sauna remain dry heat. We still call it a steam sauna.
The heaters come in different styles and designs. These allow for some unique placement in your sauna, such as those that can be inserted in the bench itself. These require more safety features such as a safety rail to help prevent accidentally touching the hot rocks.
Also, keep in mind, just splashing water on the hot rocks can cause water to splash onto people. Take all precautions to prevent injury.
Because of the extreme heat in steam saunas, you must keep all health precautions top of mind for yourself and others that will be using the sauna.
Here is a selection of some of the best 2 person saunas available this year, both for indoors and for outdoors. Keep in mind the steam sauna does require a little more maintenance regularly because it creates moisture and this can become a problem with mold and bacteria if not cleaned or maintained properly.
All steam showers require proper electrical. Please consult an electrician for the requirements you need.
