Where should I locate my Ozone Sauna and Oxygen Concentrator in my home?

Saul and others,
I have my sauna in my living room right now. After each sauna, the house
smells strongly of ozone. It sometimes makes me cough. I know its not a really
big deal to breath such a low concentration of ozone...but I was wondering
what others' solutions to this problem are? Keep it in a guest bedroom or
something? Also, does the excess ozone in the air damage any household items?
A living room is not ideal. A spare bedroom is best. An open window
while you sauna, with a fan blowing escaped ozone out the window works
Ozone will damage anything with rubber belts: cassette descks, DVD decks,
VCRs, computer CD-ROM trays; etc. To be safe, move this out of the spare
room. TVs are ok, unless they are combo units with a VCR at the bottom.
Speakers are ok, so run long speaker wire leads into the room. Lamp cord
is good speaker wire, and cheap.
Best of health!

I have my sauna located in a separate small building/shed in my backyard that is well ventilated
with two always-open windows on opposite sides of the room. It is a good idea to keep the ozone
sauna well away from rubber. Rubber oxidizes rapidly in ordinary air and much faster in the
presence of ozone. Anything containing a compressor will have rubber feet under the compressor.
If the compressor is at floor level it will get a maximum dosage of ozone since ozone is heavier
than air. The oxygen concentrator and your refrigerator and freezer have compressors that should
be kept well away from the sauna. I have a small fan blowing air from an open window three feet
away --- blowing fresh air across my face while I am in the sauna. I keep the oxygen
concentrator in the garage and pipe the oxygen from there to the building out back where I have
the sauna --- oxygen tubing threaded inside PVC pipe that is buried under ground. I would
suggest that you have the O2 concentrator at least in a separate room and high on a shelf if. I
would air out the house after each sauna if had to keep the sauna in the livingroom. And I would
use a dehumidifier in the house to take the moisture out of the house caused by the sauna, to
avoid mold development. The dehumidifier probably also has a compressor. Maybe a small shed out
back is the easiest way to go?

I have my sauna in a spare bedroom that I have converted to my spa room. In
it is the sauna.. a tv, a stereo, lamps, the concentrator, the generator, a
fan and a chair. There is one window which is open wide in the summer and
mostly closed in the winter. The only thing I have noticed is that the
stereo, which is a small ghetto blaster doesn't work on the tape deck
anymore.. which is no problem cause I always use CD's.
There is a concern about the ozone eating anything rubber.. so you need to
keep rubber away or as far away as you can. My concentrator is in a closet
in that room and has been working for almost 2 years now and it was a
reconditioned one, cause you know the manufacturers wife doesn't get the
I don't worry about mold from the moisture, because ozone will make that
impossible, just like you won't grow mold in your sauna.
I wouldn't worry about the location too much except to think of your own
personal preferences and uses in your home. It might be inconvenient to have
it in the living room if you live with people who don't want to see you
streaking out of the sauna afterwards you know?

What is exactly meant by the word "closet"?
Like a closet where you have your clothes...
would it be able to "breathe" there?
Can this closet be in the same room as where
the ozone is put out in the air?
Yes, a clothes closet, in the same room as the ozone sauna is in. Just
leave the door open a few inches, and it will be fine. The closet will
get quite warm from the heat generated by the compressor, which is ok,
because that drops the relative humidity.
