I wont be getting a space heater as we already have a heat pump up the bedroom end of the house and I cant close our door as we will soon have a new born baby. We are just going to keep using the heat pump which has fixed the problem :-D

Just in response to ksjosker, I have a F&P Icon Auto with a heated hose and still have problems with Rainout when the bedroom is cold, like Polly the water builds up in the mask from my breathe.

My supplier did show me some thin cloth pads that were suppose to fit over the mask (not blocking the vent holes) and stop the condensation, sadly they couldn't figure out how to get it on the Mask neatly so I passed on buying it.

The main reason I take my mask off in the middle of the night is the fear of drowning in my sleep, a nose full of water (I have a nasla mask) is not the most pleasant way to wake up.

Cheers
John
