Heater Hose Delete?

I had a leak in one of the heater hoses (with the air bleed valve) and read up about the expensive replacement part, so I opted to bypass the inlet to the outlet for now. My question is, can I do this permanently? I ask because this gets rid of one of the air bleed valves, can I still bleed air from the system effectively with just one valve screw rather than two?

I'd say chances are that it would be ok.

I deleted my heater by plugging each end separately.
