What home oxygen concentrators are the quietest?

Depending on the stationary oxygen concentrator, you can get the oxygen you need without all the noise by choosing from the quietest home oxygen concentrators on the market.

The Quietest Home/Stationary Oxygen Concentrators

Those who require higher doses of oxygen must often opt for a home oxygen concentrator, also called a home oxygen concentrator. Home oxygen concentrators are generally more powerful than portable oxygen concentrators, so they make slightly more noise.

However, newer models of home oxygen concentrators have successfully cut down on the sounds they make, putting some in line with portable oxygen concentrators. The quietest home oxygen concentrator currently available at the Oxygen Concentrator Store includes three models: Respironics EverFlo Q, Inogen at Home, and the AirSep VisionAire. All three models register at around 40 decibels during usage, which is comparable to the noise you would find in a library, the gentle sound of bird calls, or a desktop computer. All three provide continuous flow oxygen from 1 to 5 liters per minute, though the Respironics EverFlo Q offers liter flows from 0.5. However, the unit is also the heaviest, at 31 pounds, while the Inogen at Home unit is only 18 pounds.

Following those units regarding noise is the Invacare Perfecto2, which operates at around 43 decibels. The CAIRE Companion 5 and Millennium M10 models of home oxygen concentrators are next at 50 decibels, which is comparable to light traffic or a refrigerator. Older models of oxygen concentrators make a little bit more noise — topping off at 58 decibels, which is comparable to an office or air conditioning unit at 100 feet — but they are still within the range of tolerability, especially since they are only used at home.
