Clearlight Saunas - A Complete Review of the Popular Brand

Clearlight Infrared Saunas are some of the most innovative and effective saunas on the market today.  That’s because, unlike traditional saunas that rely on heated air, Clearlight’s saunas utilize the same infrared energy that is produced by both the sun and our bodies to heat the body from within. 

For this reason, the healing benefits of the infrared energy can penetrate deeper, allowing you to feel the difference as your body is rejuvenated and your health improves.

Clearlight is one of the originators in the industry, one of the first to offer true full spectrum heat, low EMF & ELF, and actual clinical data to support their claims.

Let's take a closer look at the Clearlight Saunas to see what they are all about...

The Current Clearlight Lineup

Clearlight Infrared Sauna

Available in a range of models, designed to house from 1-5 people, these saunas not only look beautiful with furniture quality construction, but each one comes fully equipped with windows for light, roof ventilation, recessed LED accent lights, an interior light for reading with a beautiful wood lampshade, a Never Fail™ digital keypad both inside and outside the sauna that allows you to control temperature, time and lights, Bluetooth/AUX/MP3 Audio inputs and stereo speakers. 

The current lineup consists of the Premier, Sanctuary and Outdoor series...

Premier Series

The Premier Series is the most affordable and provides far infrared heat only, as opposed to the Sanctuary Series, which provides all three spectrums of infrared heat.

Here you have the Premier IS-1, IS-2, IS-3, IS-C and IS-5, and they feature the company's patented True Wave carbon/ceramic far infrared heaters.

The Premier Series is available in Western Red Canadian Cedar and North American Basswood, both good choices for infrared saunas.

As you move up in the lineup the sauna can accommodate more people. The IS-C is a corner unit that can hold 3 people...the IS-5 can hold up to 5. (Note that the IS-5 requires 240V, the others 120V is sufficient)

All of the models feature controls inside and out, doctor designed benches and color light therapy.

Sanctuary Series

The Sanctuary Series is a step up from the Premier Series, offering as we mentioned above all three spectrums of heating: far IR, mid IR and near IR. This offers you the health benefits of all three, as opposed to just one.

Here you have the Sanctuary 1, 2, 3, Y, Retreat & C, and they all have the company's patented True Wave full spectrum heating system.

This series is also available in Western Red Canadian Cedar and North American Basswood.

Again, as you move up in the Clearlight Sauna lineup the units can accommodate more users. The Sanctuary Retreat can accommodate up to 4 people and is wheelchair accessible...the Sanctuary C is a corner unit that can hold up to 4 people.

The Sanctuary Series features several upgrades including Italian inspired design, glass roof, built in charging and audio and the ability to place your tablet in the door handle for easy viewing while you relax.

(Note that the Sanctuary 1 & 2 require 120V, while the larger units require 240V like the Premier IS-5)

Outdoor Series

The Outdoor Series is designed for indoor or outdoor use, and features the same True Wave full spectrum heaters as the Sanctuary Series. So you can literally put these infrared saunas anywhere.

Here you have the Outdoor 2 and Outdoor 5, sharing the same special features as the Sanctuary Series. There's no basswood choice here, however, as you get engineered wood on the outside and Western Red Canadian Cedar on the inside.

Both of the outdoor saunas require 240V.

The Pros

Clearlight Sauna Logo

There are many reasons to choose Clearlight Infrared Saunas but the most obvious is that the technology they use is proven to have healing benefits.  That’s because it was designed by a doctor, who understands just how helpful infrared energy can be.  And the team at Clearlight has spent 19 years researching and studying infrared therapy so that they can bring you the most effective product possible.

The patented design of the Clearlight Infrared Saunas includes a larger surface, which allows not only for more coverage but for the production of far infrared heat, which penetrates further into the body for deep healing. 

At the same time, Clearlight is the only sauna manufacturer to ensure both low EMF (electromagnetic frequencies) and low ELF (extremely low frequency) radiation, by running their electrical wiring through metal conduits and twisting it, both of which drastically lower EMF and ELF levels, making them the safest saunas on the market today.

Clearlight saunas don’t just work well, they’re also made well, using only certified Grade “A” Western Red Canadian Cedar or Basswood and carefully crafted to enhance the look of your home.  And to ensure that you are happy with your purchase, they include a lifetime warranty that covers everything from the heaters to the controls to the wood…and even the audio system!

Customer service is another plus with Clearlight.  They have toll free telephone support 7 days a week, and are happy to help with installation, answer questions or otherwise address your concerns.

The company currently has an A+ rating with the BBB, which is a very good sign.

The Cons

There aren't really any negatives when it comes to Clearlight Infrared Saunas.  If we had to pick something, it would be the fact that currently you can't purchase products on their website. Rather, you can request a price list via an online form or directly on the phone using their 800#.

Customer service is great, so it's really a pleasant experience.  Prices are reasonable and they offer special sales throughout the year. To some people it is preferable to work one on one with a sauna specialist rather than just buying blindly perhaps this is the way it is supposed to be done.

The Bottom Line on Clearlight

Clearlight Infrared Saunas help you take the healing experience to the next level with well-made, well-designed infrared and full spectrum saunas that are a step ahead of the competition.

The beautiful Clearlight Sauna models can fit into almost any design and can even be used outdoors, so that you can get the all the benefits of a sauna at your own convenience.  And since they come in a range of sizes, you and your whole family can enjoy the healing benefits of infrared energy in the comfort of your own home. 

If you’ve ever been tempted to try a sauna but put off by the traditional models, this may be the choice for you.
