    It increasingly appears that my test was not fair to the point of exclusion. I set the Engle to where I know it will stay at about 3°, in an eye-wateringly cold house, opened about twice, with a bottle of water. It probably almost never cycled.

    I'll do a detailed tv-station test, with constant draw, when the power goes down again. That event at least is as certain as death and taxes.
