Best Mode for H5i
#1
After finding out how to get into the settings menu, I had set it up so that I could select both the comfort level (1 - 6) and the temperature. The first night I tried with these settings, using comfort level 3 and Temp 30deg C, I had a great nights sleep and no dry mouth. But when I set the comfort setting back to auto and still using 30deg C, I am experiencing constant dry mouth.

Is the auto function known to be poor at controlling humidity and manual should be used?

Any thoughts or experiences greatly appreciated.

I use the heated hose on auto, now temp set at 23C
Turn down on warmer nights and up on colder nights

No two people alike, everyone is different

If you breathe through your mouth as I do, then you will have dry mouth even if water is condensing in the tube.
(I noted that you had a FFM.)

In auto mode you are not getting constant humidity. The machine adjust to the room humidity level. So it runs for a wile, shuts off and then runs again.
I had the same experience you are having. Now I just keep it in manual mode with the temperature and humidity set to my comfort level. Sounds like that might work for you. BTW, I have not had any rain out either.

Thank you for the responses. Having used it a few more days I am still constantly experiencing dry mouth in auto no matter what the temperature I use. So as suggested I will put it in manual and play with that to see if I can find a suitable combination.

All good fun, yes, no rain is good. Smile
