If it can be fixed. And finding the right people to service your unit is a subject in itself. Some Steam Generator Options to consider - THERMASOL - STEAMIST
WILL A WINDOW WORK IN A STEAM SHOWER? - Yes, it is possible. As long as your window is a double-pane window. Most newer homes do have double pane. No heat out and no cold in.
IS INSULATION OF THE STEAM SHOWER NECESSARY? - Yes, especially when the walls or ceiling is an exterior wall. Insulation ensures that the heat remains in the shower and doesn't escape outside and guards against a cold chill coming in.
WHAT ABOUT A SMALL SHOWER, CAN A BENCH BE BUILT? - Building a corner seat in the shower to relax is a good idea however it still may not leave enough room for the shower door to swing open, but there are some options that could work.

Taking the walls down to the studs and sub-floor, custom steam shower installation starts with removing the existing walls and tile from the shower’s base.
You can install the steam shower units in an adjacent closet to the shower or you can build a bench to keep the steam unit inside the shower.
A tile backer board which resembles a cement board is used to cover the shower in this case.
Waterproof Schluter Kerdi membrane is applied to ALL areas of the steam shower in order to ensure sufficient protection for it.
A slurry of thinset is applied to the durrock underlayment prior to the application of the cement pour and will form a seal between the Schluter shower drain and the sub-slab of ceramic tile.
It is recommended that the cement poured pans are troweled with dry pack mud for greater control and to ensure a proper drainage system to the shower drain at a ratio of 1/4" per ft.
We have Schluter shower pans filled with water, before the tiles are directly installed to the shower floor, and tested for leaks.
After the Schluter/Kerdi shower is installed, the next step is to install the product directly to the tile and grout.
During the tile installation process, the tile installer usually begins with the walls and ceiling in preparation for the shower pan to be tiled last to allow for the cement to cure properly.
An integral part of this steam shower is the custom bench that houses the steam unit and has a recess which is made to accommodate soap and shampoo bottles.
TILE INSTALLATION for STEAM ROOMS & STEAM SHOWERS
There are a number of tile options available to suit any bathroom shower installation project. However, there are differences in the efficiency of their steam generation devices depending on the particular tile you choose.
Quality porcelain tile is among the most efficient tiles. This is because they are nonporous and do their job at retaining the heat that is generated, they are followed by quality ceramic and glass tiles. It is possible to install natural stone, however, it will require more maintenance with the need for sealing the stone every two to three years depending on how often the steam unit is used. In the case of a large steam room or a large steam shower, it is recommended to choose a tile that is non-porous as mentioned previously.
The steam shower featured is a 13x24 porcelain wall tile that is set horizontally with the grout lines matching in straight lines. There is a natural stone tile ceiling and floor that are installed in the steam shower. Because of the small size of this steam shower, the use of stone tiles barely affects steam generator efficiency, whereas a larger unit could be affected negatively.
