    hello i have recently moved house and am having a new combi boiler fitted (vaillant) as i currently have old system with immersion,tanks etc
    i am keeping the the exsisting pipework
    the rads i have are the original rads fitted from the early 70's should i consider getting new ones even though i am also having a magnaclean fitted
    i would give them a lick of paint but dont want problems later in life but also thinking of extra cost any advice would be appreciatted
    many thanks

    its hard to say without seeing the system.
    i know many systems that still have the original rads and been no problems.
    change them later on one at a time, or if you can afford it change them now
