RE: How much humidifier benefit if not using ClimateLine?
A heated hose lets you use higher humidity without getting rainout.

Some models also have a humidity sensor at the mask end, and give you better control of the humidity you are breathing.

They heat the air a bit, but my feeling is that it's not that much of a difference.

Remember that more humidity isn't always better. Some people find too much humidity actually makes congestion worse.

I have a few climateline hoses, but I use unheated hoses.

Get the free SleepyHead software here.

If it's midnight and a DME tells you it's dark outside, go and check it yourself.
