H5i humidifier can be bought separately, and yeah, the heating plate in the unit is supposed to get warm. With the AutoSet you indirectly control the temperature of that plate using the humidity setting, if you don't have a ClimateLine hose.
If you have the ClimateLine hose, then there is a temperature setting you can control (and humidity setting is automatic -- though I think there is an override to allow you to control both humidity and temperature if you want when using the ClimateLine).
Just to confirm what zonk and c0reDump have told you, I use the S9 AutoSet and tweak my settings via the clinician's menu as needed. I was made aware of this option by the knowledgeable and helpful folks in this forum. Welcome lafsa. It's good that you found us.
And yes, in the clinician's menu on the S9 Autoset (with ClimateLine hose) you CAN disable the automatic "temperature controls humidity" and get at the settings separately.
This is mostly needed by people with great variance in their room temperature or humidity levels. The machine is pretty smart, but sometimes the user knows the 'weather' conditions better.
