Getting the right setting on your humidifier can make all the difference in the world on your Luna G3. An improper humidity setting can cause significant dryness if dialed in too low. If adjusted too high, it can cause massive amounts of condensation in your CPAP tube. In either case, adjusting the humidity setting properly makes all the difference. Let’s take a look at how that adjustment is made.

Adjusting Luna G3 humidity with Standard Tubing

Adjusting the humidity setting is very easy on the Luna G3 CPAP. Especially when using standard “non-heated” CPAP tubing. Remember to increase the setting to add more humidity and decrease to reduce condensation. For the Heated Tubing instructions jump down to the next explanation.

Step By Step Instructions with Standard Tubing:

  1. Wake up the screen by pressing the knob button located to the right of the screen.
  2. Turn the knob right until you highlight the setting selection and press knob to access
  3. The very first adjustment will be the Humidity setting. Press knob again to access the setting. The number should turn yellow.
  4. Turn knob right to increase the humidity setting and left to decrease. It can go as high as 5 if you are dried out or as low as 0 if you have excess condensation. NOTE: If you turn all the way to the right, you can set it to auto and allow the Luna G3 to adjust itself based on your ambient room conditions.
  5. Press the knob to lock in your setting change.
  6. Press the home button below the screen until you are returned to your main home screen.

Adjusting Luna G3 Humidification setting with Heated Tube:

Adding in the Luna G3 Heated tubing can also make a big difference. If you are having serious dryness or serious condensation issues that you haven’t been able to resolve with the instructions above, then heated tubing may be a big help. Once you attach the heated tubing to the Luna G3 you have another setting to control. Let’s go over the step-by-step instructions.

Step by Step Instructions with Heated Tubing:

  1. Wake up the screen by pressing the knob button located to the right of the screen.
  2. Turn the knob right until you highlight the setting selection and press knob to access
  3. Now you will see that the first two settings are the Humidifier Setting and Heated Tube Settings. Press knob to highlight the setting and adjust from 0-5 or set as Auto. Increase setting to provide more humidity and decrease to reduce humidity and condensation. Note: If the Humidity setting is set to Auto, then the Tube setting will be changed to Auto as well. Auto setting is a great place to start.
  4. Press the knob to confirm your setting change
  5. Press the Home icon button located below the screen to exit back to the main screen.

How does the Auto Humidification feature work on the Luna G3

The Luna G3 CPAP and BPAP have an integrated thermometer and hydrometer. This gives the unit great insight to your room’s ambient conditions. The G3 will adjust the Humidity as well as the Heated Tube setting (if you have a heated tube) to provide you the appropriate amount of humidity without causing rainout. The Auto Setting is a great place to start when you are adjusting the humidity settings on your G3.
