A dedicated electrical outlet is strongly recommended for an infrared sauna in most manuals. Infrared sauna heaters consume a lot of electrical power (although less than a steam sauna heater), and improper power supply increases risks of damage to your home and health (i.e. by inflammation). Quality electrical wiring and outlets help to reduce these risks to a minimum.

The best solution is to ask a professional electrician to install a dedicated outlet for you. However if you have skill and knowledge you can do it yourself. Here is a list of things you should think of:

  • Check the outlet type your sauna requires. Most probably it will be 120V 15Amp, but it can be 120V 20Amp, 240V 15Amp or 240V 20Amp, also some infrared sauna models can require two electrical outlets instead of one. Non-US readers should look on the outlet types that are common in their country.
  • Choose a right cable to power an outlet. You should check that wire section and insulation are enough for required voltage. If the cable will be too thin it can heat up and even inflame.
  • Consider the possibility of putting a wire in a wire way. Especially if you have home animals who can bite the exposed wire.
  • Consider the possibility of using GFCI (Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter) outlet. It will protect you from short circuit and ground fault while operating your sauna. It is often required by law in possibly wet places such as a bathroom or outdoors.
  • You may want to install an additional switch to turn your sauna off. Check if your sauna has an on/off switch. If it hasn’t, then you can find it convenient to install one, so you will be able to turn the sauna off completely.
  • Check before and after. Before installing an outlet check that all components you have (outlets, switches, wires) don’t have any type of defects. Re-check when you finish, there can be damage you’ve done while working.
  • Remember about safety! Always turn off the power before doing anything with electrical wiring.

Human beings eat different sorts of foods, and those foods after digestion excrete the waste that are not anymore needed by our bodies. These wastes have to be properly disposed as they may pose environmental and health hazards. In the same way that all other kinds of wastes must be properly disposed to avoid the said unwanted effects. What are these other kinds of wastes and who creates them? Waste creators are those manufacturers of different kinds of products. They produce these wastes on the process of manufacturing. These refuse that are not anymore useful like scraps of papers, cellophanes, cans, metals, all these have to be properly thrown as they may cause damage to our environment and to our health. In the same way manufacturers in the fields of electricity must properly throw away electronics waste they create for a healthy environment and a healthy citizenry.

The government of the United Kingdom has this thing called Waste Electrical and Electronics Equipment or better known as WEEE , which is a directive 2002/96 / EC, together with the RoHS Directive 2201/95 / EC. This became a European Law in February 2003 which sets the collection, recycling and recovery of all types of electrical items. It is commonly known as the WEEE waste directive which imposes the responsibility in the disposal of electrical and electronic waste to manufacturers, sellers, and end users to drive them into a concerted effort to make the environment clean. Companies are mandated to create an infrastructure for collecting all electrical and electronic waste including cellphones. WEEE waste directive has provided the platform in making the public aware that they can return their worn out and waste cell phone items for proper disposal that is an ecologically friendly manner.

Who would want his environment to be polluted that in return may backlash through global warming calamities? Everything that can be recycled must be recycled. For example, Aluminum, which is a sustainable metal that can be recycled into new cans within 60 days. So, instead of just throwing your used cans anywhere, bring those cans to proper disposal and you can even exchange those waste for money. Also your cell phones and other electronic gadgets can be turnover for proper disposal in exchange of money. With that you are protecting your environment plus you have new cans and new cell phones, and electronic gadgets back into the store shelves.

Having said all this, let us start in our own household the proper disposal of waste. Diligently we will do it until we contaminate our community in this worthwhile effort to clean up our environment. And we must act now and not procrastinate for we are now all seeing and actually experiencing the catastrophic effects of global warming which is causal to not disposing our wastes properly.
