How often should I replace my mask and other PAP therapy accessories?

As most manufacturers have suggested, the average life of a mask is six (6) months depending on use and care. Most masks will have parts that can be replaced to help keep costs down. PAP system filter replacements will also vary on usage, unit placement, home environment, the presence of pets, etc. Check your manufacturer’s guidelines for recommended filter changes. Most filters will need to be changed between 3 to 6 months.
Contact your insurance provider if applicable, to determine the frequency your mask and/or mask parts as well as other accessories may be replaced. Accessories that will eventually need a replacement include masks, mask parts, hose, humidifier chamber and filters.
