The ResMed manual says every 6 months...sooner if necessary. I'm sure Phillips is similar. Look at your filter every 30 days and if it's dirty, change it. I'm sure in California where all the fires are burning, filters need changing every week (or sooner).

Philips needs to be changed more often, because it's about a third of the size of the Resmed....

"as needed" is how often they should be changed...

Phillips I think is every 2 weeks, which works out great because my recycling night is every 2 weeks and I just do it then as a good reminder!
