That depends on how the wiring was done (and probably more importantly) how easy it will be get access into the wall to RE-FEED one or the other of the two BB heaters.
My guess is that the circuit from the panel goes to the thermostat and from there
it either splits off to the individual heaters (hope for this)...
or the power is "daisy chained" to the second heater (more likely).
A marginally qualified person should be able to open the junction box where the thermostat is mounted to see which you have.
