I believe your big problem actually lies in the temperature on the opposite COOL SIDE. And this is because they do NOT do well in warmer conditions due to their natural high elevation montane habitat in the Andes mountains.

Yes, it can always be okay for them to utilize a small warmer area on the opposite side as they see fit to thermoregulate,but they and L.t.gaigeae due fine with ambient cooler temps of around low to mid-70s or so. They will not do well at all in constant temps in the 80s and above whatsoever.

I think if you chech the temp with an accurate probe or temp gun on the opposite side of the heat, you;ll find it is far too warm. And this makes sense since it is well into the heat of the summer now.
