If there is a draft nearby (e.g., you sleep with a fan on or near the window), or if you sleep with the AC on, the odds of this happening is even greater.
Condensation in your CPAP tubing is a problem as air flowing past the water droplets can create loud popping sounds that disrupt your sleep. Excess condensation or rainout can result in water splashing onto your face or even into your nose!

What is the recommended replacement schedule for the Luna G3 Heated Tube?
The Luna G3 Heated Tube should be replaced every 6-12 months, or as needed depending on the frequency of use and maintenance conditions.
How do I clean and maintain the Luna G3 Heated Tube?
The Luna G3 Heated Tube should be cleaned once a week using warm water and mild detergent. Avoid using harsh chemicals or cleaning agents such as bleach, as they can damage the tubing.
