Question hot water baseboard heaters

I was wondering if anyone could tell me if I replace my old old hot water baseboard heaters with the new type if I need to do anything diff. with my boiler..also if I take a section out of a room all togather and close the pipes off with a bleeder if that would be fine or if I need to do anything else to it..
thanks

I'm not sure what exactly you mean... 'old type' vs. 'new type' ? Can you explain further, perhaps with some model numbers or pictures?

Why would you want to remove heat from a room? If there's some problem, there may be an easier solution...

What you do with the pipes depends on how the systsem is piped.

Do you know if the baseboards are all 'in series'? That is, does the flow go into one, and out to the next, and so on through the house?

If so, you can not just remove a piece and cap the pipes. You would need to connect the pipes back together again or you won't have any heat on that 'loop' at all.

Or, are there separate supply and return pipes which each room taps into?
