humidity control - summer vs winter

humidity control - summer vs winter
does "auto" mode adjust for variations in room temp & humidity or is it best to reduce humidity & temp for the summer months?  seems like minor moisture droplets appear in the mask in the summer.
thanks

RE: humidity control - summer vs winter
I rely on automatic settings until I see evidence that demands manual intervention. More specifically, my device does not track humid summer nights well unless I keep the window closed to reduce environmental variability.

There is a humidity sensor in the machine used to adjust the amount of heat delivered to the water. You will probably need to turn down the heat, though, if you're getting rain out.
