If you're using System One humidification (see your settings), turn it off, and manually set the humidity to 2 or 3. You'll use up most of the container each night.

RE: Humidifier almost full in the morning?
my humidifier used to start out full in the mornings, but now I find I wake up in the middle of the night and it's almost empty. MY RT tells me it depends on what's going on with you while you sleep, as well as certain factors in your house, like room temperature. Still, I have been getting rather good results from my data.

Ambient temperature and humidity directly affect water usage since in auto climate control, the machine is attempting to compensate for those variables to maintain a fixed output of what you breathe. Lower humidity and temperature = higher water usage.
