Removed radiator - can i cap it if i don't want to put it back on?
I've removed my radiator in the kitchen, drained it all down etc so that the kitchen could be plastered. I don't think I actually want to put the radiator back as it looks better without it there to be honest. Can i do that?
It won't stop the heating from working will it? I was thinking that if i put cap ends in the valves then the water would just stop there and still circulate ok??
I had a new combi boiler installed a few months ago to replace a very old system with a water tank. The old radiators remained.
Let me know if I haven't given enough detail.
So yea, I don't really want the radiator there at all now, so would love to know if i can just cap it or if i actually have to do more? Or do i simply have to put it back on?
