Removal of Forced Air Heating Vent

The main floor of my house is a concrete slab from which I have in several locations vents for distributing the heat from my gas powered forced air furnace. Once of these vents comes from the floor and runs up the inside of a wall to a bedroom upstairs. I'm looking at putting baseboard heating in the bedroom upstairs and would like to remove the vent in the wall. If I remove the metal venting how do I seal it up at the concrete slab and are there any issues with this?

Removal of Forced Air Heating Vent

A piece of insulation, and then some foaming sealant.

Hope you don't have A/C also.
