If the heat is taken away the system will return to ambient temperature.

This is control basics 101. There are non-integrating ( type 0 ) and integrating systems and you should be able to tell the difference.

Velocity and temperature systems are non-integrating ( type 0 ) systems because when the power is taken away they return back to a steady state. Temperature systems return to the ambient temperature and velocity systems slow to 0 velocity.

Level and position control systems are integrating systems. Level control integrates the difference between the inflow and the outflow. Position control systems integrate velocity.
