Thank you for your very informative post. I absolutely agree that FIR (Far-Infrared-Sauna) saunas with large surface heaters appear superior to the rod shaped ceramic heaters. So far I could only find 2 companies that sell FIR (Far-Infrared-Sauna) saunas with large surface heaters: Therasauna and Sunlight Sauna. Is anyone here aware of others?
Where did you get the Therasauna for $2200? That seems like a great bargain to me. I doubt that there are any dealers in the Birmingham, AL area but even if I'd add shipping (approx. $300) it's still a great deal.
Anyone who knows dealers of Therasauna or Sunlight Sauna or others with large surface heaters, that give such discounts, please post!
