I moved into an old apartment about 6 months ago. This is a fairly old building and has an interesting heating system. The heat is “controlled” by a thermostat however, it seems the thermostat does little to nothing when adjusted.
There is no actual on/off switch (believe me, I’ve looked, it’s a small apartment) so I’ve resulted to adjusting the heat by using the circuit breaker switch, which is located in the living room. It is a dedicated switch on the breaker which only controls the heat, and no other outlets/appliances. Written on the breaker is “QO Load Center. 100 Amp. Mains. Series A12”
Now the question is: will this eventually damage the circuit breaker?
I probably flicked the breaker 3-4 times a day this past winter. So far, so good.
I’ve done some Googling, and have gotten mixed answers with little to no support, so I’d like some informed answers please!
