I have a circulating hot water baseboard heater running along a wall in a large room. I want to build a large set of built-in bookcases along half the wall, essentially covering the heater. What are my options?
I am thinking of removing the heater elements and having the pipe run underneath the bookcase, covered with insulation. This will remove the heating ability of the heater, but I think the room will be fine because it has another on the other side. Is this safe and up to code to do this?
If not, is it feasible to reroute it to the front base of the bookcase?
