On October 25, 2012, the National Association of Home Builders reported a 5 point increase in the remodeling industry during the 3rd quarter of 2012, and the remodeling industry was approaching the levels enjoyed in 2005. Finnleo is pleased to announce that interest in saunas, as part of a master suite remodel, has followed this trend.

With an ever increasing emphasis on healthy living and at home spa amenities to enjoy less daily stress, home saunas are included in more designs. For those seeking the restful tranquility of a traditional sauna enjoyed alone or with others, custom designed saunas make optimal use of available space. With features like chromatherapy, iPod Lockers, and touch screen controls, the traditional sauna has evolved to help replicate the high-end spa experience in the comfort of home.

For those who prefer infrared saunas, Finnleo is pleased to offer both custom and standard sized infrared saunas. The custom infrared rooms can be designed to meet most any space, up to a 7x8 room, and they can be combined with a traditional sauna heater (operated by the same control, but not at the same time as infrared) to create a 2-in-1n InfraSauna. This combination allows for the best of traditional and infrared sauna in one room.

The standard sized infrared saunas are available in two series, both of which are Low EMR/Low EF. The B-series infrared rooms are feature rich and beautifully designed. The B-series rooms’ standard features include chromatherapy and FM/CD/MP3 radio. Available in six sizes, the B-series rooms install quickly and can be plugged into a 120 volt electrical outlet. The S-series rooms expand on the features of the B-series by utilizing an all-glass front and a touch screen control with integral sound system. 

Additional features of the S series include Low voltage valance lighting, bench skirt lighting, EvenHeat™ design, 24 programmability and more.
