how to properly terminate dead wires?
What is the proper way to manage or terminate wiring that is no longer live?
We have many junction boxes that are no longer needed, and it would be nice to remove and repair with gypsum board. The unused wiring is nailed to studs.
The boxes were for thermostats for the previous baseboard heat. At the service panel the wires have been pulled out and clipped short so they cannot possibly be re-connected.
In addition, we have lights controlled by a single switch that would be better off with 2-way switches. It all makes for many dead wires.
