Quick question....I created a 218 sq. ft. steam room. My question is, is what kind of exhaust fan do I need to exhaust excess steam/heat? I installed a Amerec Ak 10 (wire size 6-2 With Ground)
To ponder the question more specific...do I need just a normal exhaust bathroom fan that can handle changing the room air (x amount of times per hour) Or do I need a specific moisture sealed fan to exhaust the excess steam?
I'm not positive if a normal exhaust fan can exhaust the amount of steam that can be produced by this steam machine.

Any help or suggestions would greatly appreciated.

218 square feet tells me your generator is WAY undersized.  If you meant 218 cubic feet, then your generator is a bit oversized.  Either way, I would recommend reviewing your steam shower environment design with a Steam Bath Specialist who can provide you specific steam bath ventilation recommendations for your unique environment.
