Question
Hello,
     We used our heat twice this year so far . It seems like it is on all the time so I shut the breaker off . Is this possible that it can be on even when I have the thermostat off ?

Answer
William,
        It is possible to have heat on when system is off- I have seen it several times . It is likely a stuck sequencer/contactor or possibly even control wiring issue . All pretty simple to fix . Since it is somewhat of a safety hazard I recommend you call a service company to correct .

         Hope this helps, Marcus   ac repair Largo
