Clearlight VS JNH

DIY Sauna Course

Looking at JNH Lifestyles saunas and comparing them to a Clearlight Infrared Sauna?

Much to consider, but it really comes down to what’s important to you. JNH saunas are not normally low EMF, despite saying that on their website. The main difference is the overall build quality. JNH is built fairly cheaply, has thinner walls, usually containing saw dust, etc… from my experience. Yes they are thousands less than a Clearlight, but there’s a reason a Kia is less expensive than a Mercedes.

VOC wise, JNH isn’t bad once you clean it. I’ve had much worse saunas like a Radiant by Blue Wave or Golden Designs I believe.

Obviously I’m biased toward Clearlight, but it isn’t because I’m an affiliate for them. After using both products a bunch of times, there’s no question the Clearlight delivers more far infrared. It’s built better, is better quality, and hands down a better sweat.

But that’s not to say Clearlight is perfect. If you know me, you know I can’t stand the full spectrum upsell from Clearlight salespeople. You don’t need it, it’s a waste of money unless you just like the look of the Sanctuary models. The Premier model is all you need with just far infrared.

I also really like the Radiant Health Saunas, even better than the Clearlight even though I’m a fanboy of those. If you’re looking for an alternative, that would be a good choice.

This shouldn’t even really be a comparison, the Clearlight is light years ahead of JNH. They’re not even in the same category:

JNH Sauna Pros & Cons



  • built very poorly
  • not comfortable, splintering wood, etc…
  • not zero EMF, likely high EMF if you buy a JNH Joyous model
