Like the others have said, every one is different. You may not need it at all. I live in Houston so I only use humidity for about 3 months a year. Also, your bedroom's temperature and humidity drives what is needed to be added by your machine. The only solution is try different combinations until you have to found what works best for you, and remember that whatever you like now may change with the change of season (winter is the dryest in most cases).

No humidity, tube on 3 just to take the winter chill off what I breathe in ( Dreamstation )... going to no humidity, no heated tube in the next week or so as the weather warms.. summer is a bit slow kicking in to high gear at the moment.

And I want to cut power consumption to maximise battery life when I'm camping off the bike and using a 12 volt battery pack I made to run it.

RE: Temperature and humidity settings?
I used to fidget with the humidifier and tube temperature settings. With the Resmed A10, I have learned that the auto setting for both works best for me. Here in Kansas, the humidity and temperature vary so much that I couldn't keep up with the settings. The ClimateLine Air hose has a sensor built into the end of the hose where it mates to the mask. On the auto setting I always get an optimum amount of humidity and have yet to have rain out.
