comment How can I fix flickering and continuous-clicking with a UPS on an inverter-supplied circuit?
The setting is labelled "voltage sensitivity", but the setting for the low sensitivity setting includes this: "Use this setting with equipment that is less sensitive to fluctuations in voltage or waveform distortions."

Thanks tester,I was measuring the delta T across the evaporator; I fixed the wording of the question to clarify that. I added the temp from the compressor as extra info, but it didn't factor into the math. based on your guideline, 28 degrees is a bit high, I'll check it again next warm spell.

comment What are the pros and cons of installing a roof heating cable?
I've had good results with heat cable in western CT. Our contemporary house has very shallow soffits, so the ice dams were very close to the edge before I installed it. I installed it as directed, up the leader, zig zags hanging over the edge of the roof, and a run suspended just off the bottom of the gutter. I run them from 25F to 35F, and a couple years ago when leaky roofs were as common as potholes, we were fine.

@zipzit - cut the big hole on the bookcase side, you won't have to worry about matching paint, etc.

If this is an interior wall, you may be able to flip the box around and move it to the adjoining room.
