Generator Sizing

Generator size is key to successfully operating a steam shower, as well as providing ultimate enjoyment in a steam spa. We know that construction materials, room size (including room height) and special design features such as large slab areas, all affect which steam generator model is right for the space.

Because we believe in True Sizing, MrSteam will recommend the correct generator model for your project. Just send us complete information, including working drawings, specifications, and pertinent electrical and construction details. Call 1-800-76STEAM (East Coast) or 1-800-72STEAM (West Coast) or email for assistance.

Of course, if you or your contractor would like to estimate generator size first, you can use our handy online tool here.

Steam Room Specifications

We’ll  answer typical steam shower design questions, such as:

  • What materials are ideal for a steam room?
    Generally ceramic tile or marble, but glass block and natural stone can also be used.
  • Are there any other special requirements?
    The ceiling must slope away from the user and you must provide a drain.
  • Is special ventilation needed?
    No, because very little steam escapes from the unit. Any remaining steam will condense when the individual showers.
  • What is the recommended ceiling height?
    Generally no more than 8 feet.
