Be careful covering a heated hose. From what I remember reading they are not designed to be covered and it could lead to a fire hazard.

Question RE: Whoo hoo!!! All set and ready to go!
Thanks everyone!

Thanks, I will keep that in mind. But I actually turned off the heated hose, because it heated the air too much and psychologically made me feel like I wasn't getting enough air. And I set the humidifier to 1.

But.....

Does anyone know, if you turn the heated hose off, does that also by default turn off the humidifier? Cause I noticed the humidifier light turn from orange to blue when I turned off the hose heat.

Ailu, there are several settings for the humidifier and heated hose. Go to the full clinical setup menu and you will see them. The humidifier, heated tube and tube temperature have separate controls on the PRS1 60 series.

look at reducing the indoor/bedroom temperature somewhat and then resetting the climate line to on. see if that helps eliminate that 'not getting enough air" feeling.

The blue light indicates the system one or classic humidifier is on. I think you want the system one humidity set to on, you may find setting of 1 thru 3 very comfortable.

RE: Whoo hoo!!! All set and ready to go!
Thanks QAL. Yes it has been hot! Unfortunately our little air conditioner doesn't quite reach all the way back to the bedroom. Amazingly, when I got up in the middle of the night and took my mask off for a minute, the air from the mask was cooler than the air in the house! Maybe that's another reason I slept so well.

I have the humidifier on and set to 1, and the heated hose off. Nice cool refreshing air coming in, and no rain out. Guess that is something that more likely happens in the winter months?
