Its funny how those that I called trash talk the ceramic saunas and carbon sauna companies trash talk to rods. I wish it would stop. Its not nice. I personally wouldn't buy from a company that said bad things about another company.
The ceramics have their own pros and cons. They are known for their just putting out a Lot of infrared but its not a long wavelength like the carbon but the carbon makes a super long wavelength but its just that it doesn't make that much. For those just trying to sweat more rods can be great but for detox where you want the infrared rays to go deep into the body, its a different story.
Note: I get asked this a lot about why some heaters go all the way up to the top of the sauna and some stop at the head. If someone wants a warmer sauna without using rods, having more heaters can heat up the sauna raising the temperature higher but the body might not be absorbing the far infrared when the heaters are that high over the head.
Also the ceramic heaters, although they penetrate deeper in to the body, don't have as much surface area, which the body feels cooler in one area and warm in another.
The ceramics are good but the are more pulsed type. The carbon has a more constant heat. The ceramic has to turn up high then shut off to let the sauna cool down again. Many people don't like the 50% on 50% off or whatever the percentage is the heater is off. The sauna is heated but there is no far infrared coming out until the temperature in the sauna cools down to start it up again. There are some higher end rod heaters that have more of the on time than the off time. These will usually be more costly.
Note: the ceramic plates are not the same as the rods. The rods are the 2nd best as far as fluence and infrared output. The ceramic plates if they have low wattage going into them can generate the most far infrared output. The Therasauna has ceramic plates. You can set the room at 80 degrees and they will stay to keep the room at 80 degrees the entire time, unlike the rods that get super hot and then shut off and on. I prefer the ceramic heaters that stay on the entire time, instead of clicking on and off

So, I do carry the rod heaters such as the Healthmate Sauna. This is my most popular weightloss sauna and delivers the highest near and mid infrared. The ceramic plate Therasauna is my best selling sauna. The ceramic plates turn orange from yellow and they give a broad ray. The Saunacore heaters have a more concentrated narrower range but their saunas have 11 to 13 heaters so it doesn't have any cold spots.

The ceramic saunas that get really hot and heat the room are usually heaters higher than 150 watts. Most people don't know they are getting
a 200 watt or 300 watt heater that has less infrared but heats up the room more. Healthmate is a great sauna but it can get up to 170 degrees. Those that are looking for heat and higher wattage heaters are not the type of customers that call me looking for detox from heaters that the lower wattage which give the longer wavelengths. I like Therasauna because they have higher wattage heaters for when someone wants it intense but the MPS controller can control the wattage going to the heater. The saunas I don't like just turn on and off and keep the heat stable but this is not the same thing as using an MPS controller. MPS controllers make a sauna really expensive. Saunacore doesn't use an MPS controller but they have fans in a dual wall sauna that keeps the surface of their heaters cooler.
Remember, the purpose is not to heat up the room but the flesh of the person. The room doesn't need to get hot unless someone just wants to get rid
of a lot of water weight which is not detox. The best ceramic sauna set up gets the body warm but the air in the sauna doesn't get hot.
The best ceramic saunas will have the heaters concentrate on under the head to the butt, not the legs unless there is a reason someone needs infrared on their legs. The cooler the temperature of the heater the more likely it should cleanse the organs inside out. It will take longer to heat the person's core temperature if the temperature is lower. The saunacore controller can be set from 5 degrees to 190 degrees for their heaters.
I urge people to look into my top 2 ceramic saunas Therasauna and Saunacore. Saunacore is about twice the price of a Therasauna
but I only recommend that brand for those in the most dire situations. I will try to keep the price as close as I can to a Therasauna but if someone really needs a medical grade sauna then Saunacore is my recommendation but for an everyday sauna then Therasauna is better. These do not get as hot as a Healthmate sauna but if weightless is the main priority then Healthmate is my most intense infrared sauna but not so much on the FIR side. Heavenly Heat is good but if someone is mainly concerned with the purest woods and no glues at all then that is a good option. As far as heating systems, I like the Saunacore and T/herasauna better.
Please call me and talk to me about your needs. I will tell you the brand I recommend and why.
