Very good point Bearded One. One way to tell if you are mouthbreathing, speechless, is to check you humidifier when you wake up. If you have a significantly low amount of water, then you are most likely mouth breathing (or have a leak somewhere). If you have almost the same amount of water as when you started the night before, then it's not mouth breathing. Let us know.
