Steam Room Generators
How To Select The Proper Generator Size
1. Calculate the cubic footage of the enclosure. Length X Width X Height (in feet) = Cubic feet. Ignore deductions for benches or other intrusions as they represent surface area to heat.
2. Add the following adjustments to the cubic footage calculated in #1 above to account for your specific design features. (Multiply % indicated times cubic footage calculated in #1)
A. Ceramic tile thin set, acrylic or fiberglass. Add 0%
B. Ceramic tile mortar bed or cement board backing. Add 20%
C. Cast iron tub. Add 20%
D. For each glass, glass block wall or exterior wall (if freezing is possible) Add 10%
E. Natural stones (Marble, granite, slate). add 100%
Total = (1+2A+2B+2C+2D+2E)
3. Compare the total calculated in #2 above with the chart below.
