The Most Energy Efficient Home Oxygen Concentrator

Apart from being extremely quiet and the lightest of home oxygen concentrator models in the market today, it is also the most energy efficient as well. The Inogen at Home offers the lowest energy consumption where you can save almost $300 in electricity bills per year.

Often, patients who suffer from COPD are required to receive supplemental oxygen around the clock; therefore, your home oxygen concentrator will be powered on 24/7. Sometimes, you may only require it for night-time use, whichever your doctor has prescribed.  This all adds up in your electricity bill, especially if you need it to run throughout the day and night.  A study that was carried out against a standard market stationery oxygen concentrator against the Inogen at Home revealed that you could save a significant amount of money per annum.

If you were to opt for a higher flow rate (of 4 or 5), you will still save on your power consumption though not as much as comparison with a lower flow rate. The following shows the power consumption against the flow rate.

Maintaining your Inogen at Home

One of the key elements of making sure your home oxygen concentrator works at full capacity is maintenance and that can be done yourself. Things like cleaning your cannula, the particle filter and home oxygen concentrator are easy.

By making sure to clean out your cannula regularly, you will ensure that tubing does not collapse and prevents the build of germs and bacteria that can occur over time.

Washing the particle filter of the home oxygen concentrator is crucial and should be washed by hand once a week with warm water and mild soap. It should be air dried before installing it back in. The particle filter should be replaced at least once a year depending on your frequency of use.

In terms of cleaning the Inogen at Home oxygen concentrator, make sure to use a damp cloth with water and a milk detergent to wipe down the outside of the unit.
