Choosing the Best Portable Steam Generator

Sep 15, 2008
The steam bath or room is one of the newest innovations that homeowners can incorporate into their respective homes and facilities. It has been gaining popularity throughout the world for several good reasons. Among the many known reasons is that steam-powered rooms or baths can provide certain health and cosmetic benefits to those who try it. However, for this new innovation to run and be functional, one needs to equip it with a portable steam generator.

A portable steam generator is a technology designed and manufactured to produce steam; hence, the name. Using this technology is said to be the easiest and most efficient way of generating steam for steam baths that most homes and commercial establishments, like spas and saunas, are now using.

However, this addition to any establishment comes in a variety of forms and sizes. Its portability is just one of the many notable capabilities it possesses, the reason that every interested buyer should note every important detail about the product before making any purchase. One of the worth noting details about it by far is that unlike other types of generators, this steam generator is easy to install.

Yes, the individual user can install a portable type of steam generator all by himself, easily and quickly. This, apparently, eliminates the cost of hiring a professional. What is noteworthy though is that most of the steam generators are installed closer to the steam bath or steam room. The standard distance from the steam room to the generator is usually not over 25 feet. Also, it is necessary to note that to generate steam better, it should be enclosed in a rust resistant container that is placed indoors. Note that this casing material is needed not to expose the generator to high humidity levels, but just to hold it better.

A good portable type of steam generator comes with a thermostat. This thermostat is what determines the generator's quality, and even identifies the steam generator as being advanced or the latest in today's market. This feature is designed to control the steam's temperature automatically, allowing the generator to emit an adequate steam supply while maintaining its being energy-efficient. The thermostat can also be used to keep steam generators from unnecessary operations, thereby prolonging its life.

When choosing a portable type of steam generator, also look for the water level indicator that comes with automatic shutoff features. This feature works to stop the generator once the water level has nearly reached zero. This, in turn, prevents the engine from overheating, which experts deemed as one of the most common causes of engine damage.

Finally, consider the steam generator's size before making any purchase. This factor is worth considering, knowing steam generators come in different sizes regardless of its portability. It follows that larger steam rooms or baths require large steam generators, while the smaller ones need only small portable units. Also, make sure that the steam produced is moderate enough so as not to create any damage. This is where the importance of knowing what's healthy and unhealthy for you comes in.

If all of these factors are met, expect to enjoy the pleasures that steam baths or steam rooms can give knowing that you've done all the necessary things in choosing the right unit.
