Health Benefits of Steam

Steam Showers 101

Steam showers are gaining in popularity as more people realize that a steam shower is an affordable luxury. Add in all the potential health and relaxation benefit and it’s no wonder why they are so sought after. Nonetheless, there are a few things you should know before you embark on your steam journey.

The first thing you need to know is the adjusted cubic footage of the space you’d like to steam. We say adjusted because there are many factors that would require a more powerful steam generator than might be required based on cubic footage alone. Some examples are windows, the shower material, ceiling height, and exterior walls. Use a steam room sizing guide to calculate your adjusted cubic footage.

The next thing to know is that there are only a few reputable manufacturers and we’ve focused on helping you navigate which might be best for you. All listed on our site make respectable products, but some are better than others based on your unique criteria.

Another factor that will affect your generator selection is the features you would require such as aromatherapy, in-shower music, and chromotherapy. Many of these features will demand a supporting generator and control panel. See our descriptions below of some of the most popular features.
