Steam Generators, Sauna Heaters & Day Spas
The benefits of steam bathing are numerous and have been known for hundreds of years, going as far back as the ancient Greeks and Romans. A good steam bath can help relieve muscle tension, assist in boosting your immune system, improve circulation, and has been found to reduce or relieve congestion and allergies, providing relief to allergy sufferers around the globe. As a result, they have also been shown to improve your appearance thanks to the benefits described above.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. "Are steam generators expensive to use or operate?"
A. Most of the steam generators we offer are designed to be energy and water efficient - using between 1-2 gallons of cold water per 20-minute steam. To put that in perspective, a 20-minute shower with a 2gpm shower head would use 40 gallons of water heated by your water heater, and the average bath uses 35-50 gallons of water - also heated by your water heater. Even if you take a cool 10 minute shower after your steam (as is recommended by many health professionals), your total overall water usage is less than 25 gallons and the steam unit uses less energy than your typical tank water heater.
Q. "What's the difference between a steambath/steam shower and sauna? Which is better?"
A. The difference between a steambath and a sauna is basically "wet heat" versus "dry heat". Sauna room temperatures may actually be higher, but you may "feel the heat" more by adding steam. Both steam and sauna systems provide similar benefits for your mental and physical well-being - whichever is "better" for you really comes down to personal preference. Some people find it easier to breathe in a steam bath, while others prefer the hotter feeling of a sauna. Keep in mind also, that a steam bath/shower is usually easier to integrate into an existing bathroom than a sauna, which will usually require separate construction. If you're designing a new home, steam rooms are also generally less expensive to integrate into the design than a sauna as you can utilize one space for both your regular shower and steam shower.
Q. "Who can use a steam shower? Are there any restrictions? Is it okay for a child to use a steam room?"
A. Medical professionals consider "steam and sauna" generally healthy to use, but people suffering from heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, pregnant women, and the elderly who are not in good health should not take a steambath without consulting a physician first. As with all activities involving heat, it is important to maintain good hydration and "self-monitor" one's body for irregularities or negative effects of the heat. Those with cognitive impairments or who may otherwise not be able to appropriately monitor their own steambath usage should be supervised. Additionally, some say children can use steambaths for supervised short periods of time while others say not at all - we say talk to your child's pediatrician first to help avoid any possible risk of harm.
Please note: Steam bathing has many benefits including purifying and detoxifying the skin and body, increasing circulation, stimulating the immune system and encouraging complete physical and mental well-being. Although steam baths are generally safe, there are some risk issues. Please consult with your doctor before steaming. Because we do not make steam systems, we ask that you contact the manufacturer for steam bath safety and warranty information.
