There isn't a global setting. Each person is different. The answer is, use the setting that you find the most comfortable.

RE: Humidity and hose temperature question
Thank you.

I had humidity settings at 4 and temp at 80. I was using ResMed N20. It was fine but I only used half of water in water chamber 

Changed to test the ResMed N30i and lowered setting to 2 and temp 78. Used almost all water. Did like the new mask and will try it for a week   Was comfortable with settings

May play around with humanity and temp to see if I feel any positive changes 

Thanks again

Higher leakage will increase water usage. If you are using all the water, it should be distilled water to avoid mineral deposits.

Thanks for your response.   Minimal leakage according to monitoring.  Always always always use distilled water....I do live in desert with altitude that may contribute.    Thanks
