If your humidifier chamber is attached and filled with water you will get some humidification as air passes through the chamber even if the controls are off.
if you can't decide then you don't have enough data.

Ok, as soon as I set heated tube humidification to OFF, suddenly that menu option (System one humdification appeared right under it)....yay
Thank you everybody.
Just tried it....set system one to OFF as well, air is nice and cool, the first night when the heated tube was ON it was unbearable....room was nice and cool but air inside the mask super warm
If you prefer an unheated hose, you may want to switch to standard tubing when it's time to reorder. There's no harm in using the heated hose without heat, but standard hoses cost less.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy.
My understanding of System One with included heated hose (as opposed to the earlier models without heated hose), using the System One humidifier will automatically adjust the temperature of the tank AND the hose. How good it actually works, is another question. But that's what it's supposed to do.
Running the humidifier on manual will defeat the heated hose. In colder weather, not having a heat hose might cause rain out as the heated vapor stream could condense. The main problem I found with the condensation is that it sounds like a trumpet rather than any problem with the liquid.
If you want to run it on manual to get the hotter vapor steam and have a heated hose, the you have to get a third party heated hose. You can make one with a regular hose and reptile cage heater or you can find a third party heated hose (which were popular before heated hoses were an OEM option). If you elect to make your own, the hose doesn't have to be hot and shouldn't be. Just warm enough to keep the stream from condensing. But the do it yourself can get bulky.
