i took mine off auto and put the heated hose up to the max, and set humidity to 4. If I have any upper respiratory "stuff" going on, i move humidity higher than that, it helps loosen things up.

Other things i do to help with sinus (it's a big issue for me)
  • nasal spray - plain saline, or saline with xylitol (i use xlear)
  • low dose diphenhydramine (discussed daily use with dr)
  • Guaifenesin (mucinex) helps increase secretions and make them less sticky. Herbs like fenugreek are helpful for this if you prefer to avoid drugs.
  • hydration - make sure i drink plenty of water

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
