Dear all,
My wife is using a Bi-PAP machine every night for about 4 hours to drive out carbon dioxide.For some time she complains that the air she gets from the machine is quite hot and makes her perspired/uncomfortable.
Could anyone inform who can help resolve the machine getting hot problem /how to clean the in side blower without damage economically?
Thanks.

Does she use a humidifier with the Bi-pap machine? My son does and it seems to cool off the air a bit... when we just have the air blow over the water rather than heated. We heat it when he needs more extra moisture when he is sick.

The back of our machine has air filters we have to clean/change out regularly... have you checked those to see if they are clean or need changing? the only other suggestion I have is to get the machine serviced.
