Perhaps you just have it in a colder room? Mine just barely gets up to 110C.

I think it would help a lot to cover the front (and the top with a box). If you can raise the air temp by 20C you should be able to raise the reported temp by 20C. Plus you will get better results with the warmer air when printing ABS.

Wrapping it up would help. The heated bed only has so much power. If you want it to get hot, you need to ensure no heat leaks out. There have been a lot of people that built enclosures for the printer. Even putting a big cardboard box over it will help.
