Can I achieve a constant 55°C temperature with this setup ?

I'm doing a heat treatment for some furniture and I'm using my unfinished insulated basement. I built a 6-7cubic meter box around it using the already insulated floor and 1 wall of the basement (Styrofoam and Polyurethane 40mm thick). There's a water radiator on that wall (made of steel, 1030W at DeltaT50 60cm H and 76.5cm W). The box is built of the leftover insulation. Indeed there are quite a few leaks on the sides that I tried to patch with cardboard and paper tape.

The radiator is part of my water heating system for the house and the central electric unit, like 5-6meters away, the pipes are copper. I closed off the rest of the house and set the main unit to heat the water departing from it at 75°C.

I don't unfortunately have a sensor to put inside and it won't be accessible anyway.
