In our Sunroom, we had a baseboard heater that didn't work. And it was installed that way. FUN. This winter, we wanted to make sure to take note if the sunroom was colder than the rest of the downstairs. If it was, then it would make sense to repair. If not, then peace out sucka! Well, it wasn't cold in there, so we decided to get rid of it rather than have it repaired. It was also kind of an eye sore. And the vent was right in front of it (I don't get it either) so again, not necessary.
