What to do with this extra piece of baseboard heater?


After I tore out a built-in bookshelf, this piece of heater was left over (see photos).

Trying to figure out what to do. Should I just remove it? Or is there a sort of standalone cover that I could buy that would fit over it?

Your choise, there's covers you can buy or it can be removed if you have access under the floor.
You would have to cut the pipes and and a new piece of copper to reconnect the lines under the house.

When you say "extra" piece. Does these mean it in inoperable? Just clarifying..

it does work, i just mean that it's by itself in the middle of the floor, now that it has no wall next to it.

Do you have a photo of the built in bookshelf before you tore it out? Do you have a basement? crawlspace? finished? unfinished? Reason I'm asking is because it doesn't look to far away from the corner of the wall, from you photo it almost looks like it could possibly be spun the other way, with a few modifications to the existing copper pipe.

Agreed that any helpful suggestions require us to know if you can get at the underside of this radiator. If you're on a slab, keep looking for covers and for heavens sake don't bang it up too badly.

And a note to anyone else thinking about ripping out a wall - this could be you! Lol
