Measure then multiply the Length x Width x Height (in feet) of the steam enclosure to determine the Cubic Footage
Adjust the cubic footage to determine the Total Room Volume.
Materials: For natural stone or marble, multiply by 2.0. For ceramic or porcelain tile, or glass block, multiply by 1.35. If using another material, consult the manufacturer for their recommendation in a steam shower application.
Exterior wall: For one, multiply by 1.1; for two, multiply by 1.2.
Ceiling height: For a 9 ft. ceiling, multiply by 1.15; for a 10 ft. ceiling, multiply by 1.3.
Select a Steam Generator equal to or greater than your Adjusted Cubic Footage.
|Generator Size||Adj. Cubic Foot Range|
The example is based on a 5 ft. x 6 ft. x 8 ft. high room with marble walls and one exterior wall.
|Cubic Footage:||5′ x 6′ x 8′||= 240|
|Material Adjustment:||240 x 2.0||= 480|
|Exterior Wall Adjustment:||480 x 1.2||= 528|
|Adjusted Cubic Footage:||= 528|
In this example, you would select the 12kw generator.
