Asking for another.
#1
Asking for another.
Would high heat, let's say 85-90 degrees be harmful to a CPAP machine, if left in a room that hot? He's concerned about the hose and his machine. 

I went out on a limb and said no, to both the hose and the machine. But, I did want to run it past those of you on here just to be sure. 

I've never seen anyone asking or posting about such a topic. 

TIA!!

From the AirSense 10 user guide:

Environmental conditions

Operating temperature: +41°F to +95°F (+5°C to +35°C)
Note: The air flow for breathing produced by this therapy
device can be higher than the temperature of the room.
Under extreme ambient temperature conditions
(104°F/40°C) the device remains safe.


Storage and transport temperature: -4°F to +140°F (-20°C to +60°C)

when you think about it, most everything you buy travels in boats, containers and trucks where it is subject to pretty high heat. not a problem.

That's my usual argument. Even at 115 out, my garage doesn't get 100 and it is insulated (walls, door, and ceiling). Of course, there isn't any room for the cars.

I think the only issue may be if the device was left in a vehicle in direct sunlight.

The grease in bearing will evaporate, depends on how long you place it in that condition.

Also it will lead to foam deterioration.

Surely some people have to sleep in temperatures hotter than that in parts of the US, Central America, Middle East etc.
Some people just dont have the luxury of a/c.

In a really dry climate, a homemade swamp cooler could help.
