This house has ceiling heat. I don't know what the wattage rating is for this particular room (living room).

The t-stat box has 2 sets of lead that come into the top of box. Power comes from the bottom, 10/2 Romex.

Power at box is 244v. OCPD is a 30-amp breaker.

Ohming out the 2 sets of leads show continuity, actually shows about 4-8 Ohm's. I totally bypassed the t-stat to rule that out. Turn on the breaker to check if there was current draw. Nothing.

if I made an assumption that each set of leads represented 2000 watts that would equate to an ohm reading of 28.8 Ohm's.

Given this information, what would you think might be the issue?

originally I expected to find the heating element to have no continuity but was surprised to find 2 sets of leads and had continuity on each set of leads.
