When installing a steam room, the steam generator is the most important piece of equipment you'll select. But how do you select a good steam generator for your steam room? Consider the following guidelines.
• How large is your steam room? A larger, more powerful steam generator will power a larger room, and vice versa. Make sure you carefully measure and figure out the cubic feet of your steam room before selecting a steam generator
• What is your steam room made of? Different building materials may require larger generators. For example, fiberglass and cultured marble require smaller generators than porcelain tile
• How much do you want to spend? Steam generators can fluctuate wildly in price, but they all get the job done. Figure out a budget and let that help guide you
• What kinds of amenities do you want your generator to have? If it matters to you what the generator looks like, where the controls are located, and other aspects of this nature, you may want to look at a deluxe steam generator rather than a standard one
