Steamist manufactures quality steam and sauna products at prices you can afford. Working on a budget but want the luxury of a steam or sauna room included in your bath remodel or new construction? PlumbingSupply.com® has steam and sauna products to meet any budget's demands.

Note: Consider the construction materials used in the steamroom. Using the basic cubic feet, multiply by the following appropriate factor depending on the construction. When in doubt, buy a bigger unit.

Length: Feet
Width:   Feet
Height:  Feet
Adjust for Construction Material - Select One With the Greatest Heat Loss
Ceramic Tile - (is multilpied by 1.30)
All Glass tile or Glass Block Walls - (is multiplied by 1.35)
Porcelain tile - (is multiplied by 1.60)
Natural stone tiles* up to 1/2"  (is multiplied by 2.00)
Natural stone slabs over 1/2" (is multiplied by 2.25)

* Natural stone tiles (e.g., marble, travertine, slate, granite, etc.)

Additional Considerations
Number of exterior (insulated) Wall(s) - Multiply by 1.10 for each outside wall.

Recommended model selection:

Note: if the steamroom has a skylight or an outside window, select the next larger size generator. The skylight or window must be double-pane and sealed from the inside the steamroom.
