Most common methold is wirenut and make a note on them what it used to be served on that former circuit due some case it can be repurposed for other useage depending on conductor size.

Merci,

I like to label them by taking a short 1" or so piece of Romex sheathing, labeling with a Sharpie pen, and slipping it over the wire. I think the yellow (#12) looks good.

Coil or bend that wire neatly and tuck it away neatly in a corner.... I know that box is probably a rat's nest anyway.

That is pretty common way to do that.

But for me I don't useally coil it up I just fold it up and tuck it out of the way so you know that is a " spare " circuit which it can be reused but all it depending on conductor size.

Merci,.

From what I understand, it is permissible to abandon wires in walls etc only if BOTH ends of the wires are abandoned. As long as one end still comes into a box (like the breaker box), the other end (like at the heater) needs a box and cover plate too.

Don't know that code book very well... but it's sure a good idea. Plus why would you leave them in the panel, if you can't get to them in the wall.???
