I have an open kitchen with rooms on either side that are adequately heated. My kitchen is also heated with hot water baseboard heating. I plan to install lower kitchen cabinets along a section of the outside wall that has baseboard heating throughout. The cabinets being installed only cover about 5 feet of base board heating. I can't reroute the pipes downstairs as it is finished and will be a lot of work.

Can I remove that section of the radiating coils from the pipe and add pipe insulation there. I don't need kickplate heating.
