State-of-the-art Steam

Steam Shower ControlGone are the days of dial-up and black and white television. Consumers have moved on to the faster, more efficient, and more effective ways of the digital age where modern acronyms like HDTV and DSL are household names. Today, all parts of the living space are getting technological makeovers. ThermaSol is ahead of the curve in the bathroom with the only 100% digital Steam Shower System available on the market today. The upgrade wasn’t easy, and ThermaSol dedicated three years of intense engineering to revamp the products in their steam program; bringing every aspect of their Steam Shower to the digital era by incorporating 100% solid-state digital technology.

Steam ShowerAll other steam bath manufacturers use the decades-old analog technology. Analog steam shower systems operate via a unidirectional analog command where an electronic pulse is sent through telephone-style cables to the generator in order to command functions. Any added features like a music-system or lights must be run independently of an analog steam unit and requires an extra cable or cables. With no communication network in place to verify what the specific pulse is, the opportunities for error are endless. The system is also susceptible to uncontrollable influences like voltage spikes or lightning. This can cause the generator to activate and run; which can cause the destruction of a home’s interior and more.

ThermaSol’s 100% digital Steam Shower System provides the only networked system that contains 100% digital communication technology. Everything connected receives and transmits information to ensure that there are no reading errors as to what the command is. Expandability is also easy; features like the Serenity Light & Music System, and the Easy Start Control can be added by simply plugging them into the equipment, and will be detected by the controls to operate accordingly. With a ThermaSol 100% digital Steam Shower System, the bath is an oasis where luxury incorporates the most advanced technology; insuring reliability, convenience and safety.

Steam Shower, Sauna or Hot Tub?

Wednesday, January 6th, 2010

Steam showers, hot tubs and saunas can provide excellent ways to relax without leaving the comfort of your own home. Using a steam shower, hot tub or sauna on a regular basis can even help improve your health and feel better, improving your overall wellness. But what is the best for you?

If you are looking for weight-loss effects then you should consider a steam shower or sauna. If you regularly use your steam shower or sauna for 20 minutes a day you will get the same metabolic effect as if you had gone on a short walk. While it is thought that you will also burn calories in a hot tub due to the increase in body temperature, you will not sweat as much as you would if you were in a steam shower or sauna. Keep in mind that you will be much better off if you exercise AND take a steam shower or sauna. Learn more from our Steam Shower Diet post: Steam Shower Diet.

Sweating will also help to cleanse the skin of impurities. While a hot tub might have the same effects, your face, the most important place where you would want to lose impurities, will not sweat as much as if you were in a steam shower or sauna.

If you have sleeping problems all three will help you, but the American Sleep Association recommends soaking in a hot tub for 15-20 minutes at least 2 hours before bed at 102-104 degrees.  As your body cools, you’ll be ready for a deep relaxing sleep.

The steam from a steam shower will surely help you if you have respiratory problems such as asthma, chest congestion or bronchitis, where the sauna and hot tub will not be as helpful because of the lack of steam.

If you are one that works out often, or is sore a lot, then a hot tub is recommended to soothe aching muscles, although a steam shower will also help your body aches and pains and shorten your recovery time as well.

If you have plenty of indoor space, and don’t want to do an entire build or large remodel of your bathroom you can install a steam shower without having to build a whole new bathroom. If you were to build a sauna you would have much more work to create the enclosure.

If you prefer to use outdoor space, then a hot tub is the easiest to install, as there is little to no building required. If you want an outdoor, modular sauna or steam shower you will have to build or purchase an enclosure, plus the steam generator or sauna heater.

This is a large purchase no matter how you look at it. In order to choose the best thing for your home spa, you really need to closely examine your lifestyle, as well as the benefits you would receive from each. If you have a favorite spa activity, make sure to think about what you would really use the most, like if the seasons will limit your use or if you would use the home spa addition to entertain.

SmartSteam – Most desired feature in steam bath generators

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009

Patented Smart Steam is the ultimate in temperature control; only available from ThermaSol.

How it works:

 

Smart Steam produces the precise volume of steam required to maintain your desired room temperature while conserving energy and providing a quiet relaxed experience. This is accomplished by metering the output of power; the unit only uses enough power to support your requested temperature; no more, no less. For example: if you have a 10 kW generator and you set the temperature at 100 degrees it will use all 10 kW to get to your set temperature but to maintain your temperature it will scale back the power to only what is needed; perhaps 3kw thereby saving energy. A truly green feature. Smart Steam, the “cruise control” of steam bathing is standard on ThermaSol’s Pro Series generators.

Other Steam Showers:

 

Competitive generators turn on and off to maintain the set temperature, and use plenty of energy in doing so. Additionally, this old method creates both an overshoot in room temperature (a room that is too hot & uncomfortable) and an undershoot (a room too cold & uncomfortable). The old method works but it is akin to driving your car with either full gas or full brakes. By turning the unit on and off to maintain temperature you also add a noise factor not found in Pro Series generators.

Summary:

 

Smart Steam is patented worldwide; only available from ThermaSol.

1. Unmatched in providing uniform temperature; the most enjoyable steam bath available. (never too hot or cold)

2. Quiet as a church mouse. (unlike competitive units it is not continually turning on & off)

3. The most efficient use of energy of any generator. (Patented, hence found nowhere else)

4. Exceedingly reliable since you are not taxing the generator by constantly ramping up and ramping down.

5. ThermaSol Pro Series; your Passport to relaxation!

ThermaSol, the choice of professionals worldwide since 1958.

The Steamshower Diet

Steam Shower DietWhen people talk about weight loss, a few things usually come to mind. Healthy eating, naturally. Exercise – of course. But what about steam? Could your waistline really benefit from stepping inside a shower? As it turns out – absolutely. Welcome to the Steam Shower Diet.

Unlike other weight loss trends, the Steam Shower Diet (catchy name, huh?) doesn’t concentrate on intake or workout. Its focus is purely biological. Fancy that – a diet that works from the inside out, instead of the outside in! And there’s no counting, no scales, no calculators, or charts to maintain. In fact, if you have a home spa, you’re probably already on it! But if you’re still thinking about whether to add that steam shower to the mix, here’s something to ponder. Can you think of any other home fixture that can make you feel relaxed and help you lose weight? Yeah, I didn’t think so Sub-Zero.

The Steam Shower Diet works with two main components of your body’s biology: metabolism and stress. Anyone familiar with the chemistry of weight loss knows how essential metabolism is to shedding the pounds. Slow metabolism can substantially deter weight loss, even when you’re eating sensibly. What’s an antidote to slow metabolism? Steam. Steam has been shown to boost metabolism by opening pores in the skin, allowing increased circulation in cells. The heat of a steam shower has an effect on the body that’s similar to sweating, removing residue and dirt from the skin, and allowing the body to essentially “breathe,” speeding up metabolism. All that from a little evaporated hot water!

Stress can also have a tremendous impact on our weight. When our bodies are anxious, tired, and unrelaxed, we react to the tension by releasing higher levels of cortisol, a chemical usually responsible for that annoying accumulation of weight around our middles. Now this one isn’t rocket science, but it bears explanation. Taking a steam shower = relaxation. Relaxation = less cortisol released by our bodies. Less cortisol released by our bodies = a chance at weight loss! (And this is coming from someone who was never great at math.)

But that’s not all! The Steam Shower Diet also does little things, all of which can directly or indirectly assist in weight loss. Steam acts as a muscle relaxant, which, on top of alleviating stress on your body, can make exercise easier to tackle. And the respiratory benefits of steam can ease breathing, another important component of stress relief and exercise. Sorry, what was that, frozen meal in a box?

So if you’re looking for something a little different and a lot healthy, try the Steam Shower Diet. Ooh, I think I’m gonna diet right now.
