We'd like to remove one of the two baseboard heaters in our kitchen. (We'd like to replace it with additional cabinets.) Our house was built in 1988. Our kitchen is in our first floor. It appears it is a pipe that comes up from our basement, runs 5' of hot water along the wall, and then the pipe runs back down to our cellar. MY QUESTION: Is this a pretty easy job for a plumber? Does it involve cutting off the pipe that goes up to the kitchen and then back down, and then replace a straight pipe from A to B in the ceiling of our cellar? I'm curious what it involves and if it is a major or relatively simple task from a professional plumber.
yes you need to get the water out before you start working on it.if that section is part of a loop then you have to tie those two together with a pipe so the loop is not broken.but basically you have the right idea.the only thing is was that baseboard needed to adequetly heat the kitchen.have you thought about that?
