Question New heater question

How long does it take a new heater to, i guess calibrate(?) itself? The first two days i had my heater it was consistantly 3 degrees above what I set it to. Then it was on the dot to what i set it to. Now its 1 deegree below what I set it to. I've had it for 4 days now...
