         New to site and hoping for some guidance. I am a new home owner and have a 50 year old American Standard boiler with convection radiators throughout the house built into the walls. I am looking at upgrading my boiler to a Peerless and would like to replace the convection radiators with Runtal wall mounted units. To save some money I would like to remove the old units before installing the new Boiler. Any thoughts on a Peerless boiler? How would I drain the system to remove the old convection radiators?Do I need to drain it inorder to do this? Could I disconnect a couple of them and reconnect the boiler to work while I replace them? Apologize for the long wind. Any help would be great

    peerless and wall hung rads

    is this a steam system that you want to replace? are runtal wall hung rads rated for steam? if you are going to replace steam with hot water then just prepipe everything then just install boiler afterwards switching to hot water you do not want to reuse the old steam piping since hot water runs at a higher pressure then steam also you do not want to put the wall hung rads in the cavities that the convectors sit in
