An infrared (IR) sauna costs very little to run.
Your sauna will take 10 minutes to heat up, even though many people go inside as soon as they switch it on, but lets say 10 minutes to get up to full temperature of 43 – 66°c (110-115°F). Then lets say you spend 20 minutes. Thats 30 minutes use of electricity
The average 2 person IR sauna runs on 6kw of power. The average price per KW of energy in the UK is 13p.
We can use this formula: 6kw x £0.13 x 0.5 hrs = £0.39p
So the cost of running the sauna is:
£0.39 pence per 30 minute session
£0.78 pence per 1 hour session
If you use your sauna daily for 30 minutes per day then the monthly running cost would be £11.70per month.
