Default Balnking the heating circuit

Hi,
When I built my car, I bypassed the heating circuit, normally used to heat the inside of the car, with a loop: the water is just circulating in a hose running around the engine.
But as my engine bay is quite crowded, and I never found, in spite of many tries, the perfect route for the bypass hose, I'm thinking about just blanking the in and out ports of the heating circuit on the engine, with blanking plugs.
I have a Sierra 2.0i DOHC. the heating circuit runs from the water pump to the thermostat housing.
Will this be a problem? Does the heating circuit need to circulate, or can it be just blanked with no issue on the cooling system?
Thanks in advance for your advices.
