You're running three panels. That's pretty hectic.
2 but I opened all the doors now place is back to minus 6 degrees will start over now with 1 panel.

Still learning the ropes, but how do I know it's not the gas itself that might be low quality?

You are supposed to have some air flow with gas heaters. Not to be used in a sealed room. If it was leaking you would smell it.
Ahh that explains it then. Probably lack of oxygen in the living room I closed all the doors and windows. (was afraid the warm air slips out.)

Gas open too far, it must just be slightly open , maybe a 1/4 turn only.
No, the regulator takes care of the pressure.

Poor ventilation leads to CO buildup, along with other air pollutants.

Well .. using my Aircon to heat the room, I get a headache. First time this is happening with this specific Aircon.

It must be the poor ventilation as that makes sense.

How do I ensure I don't have too much ventilation displacing the warm air faster than the heater can make it resulting in the room not getting warm.

Its 6 gedrees outside so even if the door is open a little bit air rushes out.

My heater says ventilate the room every 1 to 2 hrs

I still ran off my solar geyser in summer - the gas geyser is a booster in winter and for my washing machine - so I don't use ekscorupt for heating water anymore
Annoyingly my washing machine doesn't have a hot water intake.
