Choosing the appropriate generator for any particular steam room is the most important factor in creating a personal steam bath. A properly sized steam generator should reach a comfortable temperature within 10-20 minutes. A generator which is undersized may take substantially longer or may not even reach a comfortable temperature; one which is oversized will form an unusually hot area around the steam head.
Each generator uses a resistance-type heating element to heat water and produce a given volume of steam, based on the kilowatt rating of the generator. One kilowatt is equivalent to 3413 BTU’s. Therefore the heat output of the steam generators is fixed to the kilowatt rating. Actual steam bath temperature will depend on the construction of the steam room and the generator selected to heat the room.
