[Equipment] Resmed AirCurve 10 Vauto
#1
Resmed AirCurve 10 Vauto
Consensus  please:

Should I unplug my AirCurve 10 when not in use, or leave it powered up in StandBy mode?

Thanks in advance,

Mitch

Unless your DME requires access via modem I don't think it makes much difference.

Personally, I leave my ASV machine plugged in 24/7 into a surge protecting power strip. I don't bother to unplug it. I cannot think of a reason to unplug it, excepting maybe if we were to encounter a major episode of lightning in the immediate area.

This.

Aside from weather issues potentially causing damage, it would be best to simply leave it plugged in.
After shutdown, it does continue to circulate air for some time which helps to dry the tubing to reduce the potential for bacterial/mold growth.
When plugging in, it takes a short amount of time to initialize...  might be inconvenient if you are particularly tired and just want to put your mask on and hit the pillow.
