We just moved into a home that has a hot water baseboard heating system, not electrical. It seems to be working wherever it is located in the house except for two corner areas in the upstairs bedroom. The other baseboard in the room is working just fine as well as the other bedrooms upstairs. They're nailed into some pretty old baseboard paneling that we would love to expose. So, I'm wondering if we can remove the hot water baseboards in those two corners and cap off the pipes. If we do so will that affect the heating to the rest of the areas upstairs? I'm assuming not since they seem to not have been affected. The previous owners informed us that the corner units haven't worked in years.
