This product comes with a 1 Year Manufacturer Warranty. CPAP.com will work with the manufacturer on your behalf if the product needs repairs. Please follow these steps:
Please note: The manufacturer warranty is voided by water damage or misuse of the machine.
Manufacturers do not test their Auto Adjusting Machines on the HC150, however, it will work with most APAPs.
A few older machines used a sensor line to monitor pressure response. They are not compatible with the SC150. Examples of such machines: GoodKnight 420S and 420E CPAP machines.
The HC150 is not compatible with the Virtuoso LX machine as it does not have the technology to support an external humidifier.

This does work, but the entire assembly seems a bit cheaply made. The on/off button on mine feels like it's going to fail at any second. There's also a minor design flaw with the tank where the only access to the interior is through the two 15mm holes. This makes it difficult to clean properly and makes it a bit difficult to fill easily. It's worth noting that the instructions state you should disconnect this from your CPAP machine when not in use. My guess is to prevent problems caused by really high humidity in the lines. I'd buy this again, but only after exhausting better options. Again, it works well, but just isn't the best design or overall quality.
This unit is amazing for added humidity to your existing CPAP equipment. I love the setting to adjust to room temperature. People complain about the power switch, but I just unplug mine when not in use. My wife noticed it works better than many humidifiers that are built into to CPAP machines. Very simple. Is a bit hard to fill with distilled water.
The heated humidifier works as advertised. The problem is the space it requires- this makes it unsuitable for travel. I might as well take my regular bulky CPAP, it takes less room.
I left it running all day a couple of times until I realized that the on/off button was defective. Even after figuring that out, it still takes me several tries to get it turn off. Also, the documentation was in two separate pieces, and I experienced frustration trying to attach the unit to the stand, before stumbling on the part where it says to remove the retaining ring from the stand first. Would have been nice to have that info more prominent. Apart from that, it works as advertised.
I have a high end ASV. Before that, I had a fairly high end VPAP. Both had attached auto humidifiers but because of the air pressure required due to complex and obstructive APNEA, they either ran out of water about 4 AM or couldn’t keep up with the needed humidity. This has adequate water and keeps up with my humidifier needs. I used Resmed nasal pillows with the APAP (which I really liked), but had to switch to a Resmed F30 full face mask to use the ASV properly. The Resmed ASV has been amazing. I’ve adapted well to the F30 mask (with a blue ‘pad a cheek’ strap addition), and really like the stand alone humidifier which makes sleep and mask fitting much better. I no longer can use the heated hose, but I use a Resmed snuggle tube which works well to reduce rain out, and this device adjusts to room temperature to reduce rain out more. If you need more moisture, this is probably your solution
I have been using this product for the past 20+ years. They usually last about 10 years, which seems like a reasonable timeframe for the price. This heater is fantastic. I only wish there was one improvement and that is the switch. Lots of times when I push the button to turn it on/off, it does not respond and takes another push or two. A nice toggle switch that can be counted on to last as long as the heater would make the heater worth more money, to me. Thank you for this excellent product!!!
My home CPAP machine has a humidifier built-in, but I travel often, and when I do I Bring a smaller travel CPAP with me instead. That machine doesn’t have a humidifier so every time I traveled I would suffer with severe sinus issues related to breathing in dry air all night. This heated standalone humidifier is light enough to travel with, and Works perfectly to keep my sinus happy. I am really glad I have it and I highly recommend anyone under the same circumstances to give it a try. It works perfectly and it’s light, you just have to be careful with packing the delicate water chamber.
My mom uses a Cpap with a built in humidifier, but our climate is dray and she was always out of water by morning. Adding this simple little humidifier to her system let us turn the main Cpap down and now she gets plenty of moisture all night. Great for anyone who wakes up dry, with an empty reservior.
Finally a humidifier that seems to provide enough moisture to keep me from waking completely dryed out.
Great item I am using this piggy-backed for longer duration sleep. My System One CPAP water tank just is too small, as are mist heated humidifier tanks. So with this added to circuit I can get a full night’s sleep and nit run out of water. Would also be nice if it was dishwasher safe.
work well while it worked,would not buy another.
