I need to make sure my circuit breakers are turned off. I have a 70 a 50 and a bunch of 30s and 20s in a wadsworth circuit box. Would the 70 and or the 50 breaker be for the old ceiling heat system?

Beats me. Purchase a non-contact voltage tester & you should be able to identify which breakers go to which ceilings.

NO They are not for the cable heat. Cable heat is limited to 30 amps maximum. You should be able to tell the breakers are off -because they have a OFF position (assuming someone hasn't hooked a wire directly to the buss, and not to a breaker). Why do you need them off? Jim Simmons - Mr. Electric

I had a water leak in the attic and the bottom layer of drywall fell expossing the wires. I need to make a hole in whats left so I can get to the leak.
