How often to replace the CPAP machine?

Do you need to replace your CPAP machine periodically?


Is a good practice to replace the CPAP machine periodically, but that doesn't mean you have to replace it every year.

Most CPAP machines have a two or three year warranty, but if you properly take care of it, the machine can last a long time (about 7 years). I know people who use the CPAP for almost 10 years, and even longer!

However, in 10 years the technology has improved, and the newer machines have better technology and are usually much quieter, smaller, and have advanced features for comfort.

So, is not necessary to replace your CPAP less than 3 years, because the manufacturers can take care of your machine if it's something wrong with it - the 3 year warranty guarantees you free replacement during this time.

But after the third year of warranty, you're on your own. The machine should work without problems for at least 2 years. After that, I recommend replacing with a new CPAP.

Bottom line... Replacing your CPAP after 5 to 7 years of use is highly recommended.

I hope it helps. Don't be afraid to comment back.
