Need assistance determining tips on how to shut radiant warmth off
I moved right into a apartment final 12 months that was in-built 1975. It has radiant warmth within the ceiling. There are 3 management panels, one in every bed room, and one in the principle dwelling space. There’s circuit breaker field within the 2nd bed room with a 2-pole circuit breaker labeled “radiant warmth”. We dwell in Southern California the place warmth shouldn’t be 100% needed. A small electrical heater within the dwelling space was sufficient this previous winter.
Right here is the issue: after I flipped the breaker to close the warmth of it solely controls the 2nd bed room and the principle dwelling space. The main bedroom was hotter than hell all winter lengthy. I can hear the warmth click on on and off in the master suite. The management panel in that room is unique and solely has a dial with no numbers. It’s turned all the way in which down, however I actually have little or no management of when it comes on. I had a handyman have a look at it. They mentioned it’s excessive voltage and presumably altering to a excessive (120v) voltage new panel with a display screen “would possibly” assist management it.
Right here is the purpose: I want to someway simply flip it off. I plan to be right here 10 to twenty years, and I’ll by no means want warmth in that room.
Does anybody have any recommendation?

Have someone take the dial off completely. And cover the hole with a blank plate.
