I think we all hate getting out of the shower cold and butt freezing
during the winter and I was thinking of a steam shower
that could save water, Iet you turn off the water, scrub, and then
rinse without the air being freezing.
But I'm wondering how much could it cost, and I mean does it work
using a compressor??
Yep, and a little heater in the bathroom helps too.
On my recent bathroom renovation, I was taking showers before I had put the
bathroom door back in. Despite the shower door and the heater being
installed, the lack of a bathroom door led to it being drafty during/after
Once I rehung the bathroom door, all was well again. The lesson learned was
that even a small draft in the shower room is uncomfortable.
A crude compromise would be one of the "Navy" shower heads.
They're small, use little water, but the spray is quite hard and
very fine. The result is that a lot of the heat in the water

the water to generate the steam and releases it under pressure. They are a
little pricey and require a water line and a power line to be installed.
Whatever water you save you will make up for in electricity costs. I have
never heard of anyone using steam to rinse off, but I don't stick around to
see how they are used after the installation.

Do a search for steam generators and steam showers for more info.
Perhaps a heat lamp may help you feel warm while drying off. I have wall
heaters to warm the bathrooms before going in and when coming out of the
