Stick with old pipes or get new?

JoeV Member Posts: 62
I have been lurking around here trying to learn enough to make an educated decision. I have an ancient (1935) boiler that died. The pipes are in excellant condition but I wonder if I must replace them if I replace the boiler. What do you suggest?

    If the pipes are in excellent condition (quite likely by the way) there's no need to replace. Put the money you thought you might have to spend on the piping towards a condensing/modulating boiler of the best quality you can possibly afford--and perhaps TRVs as well...

    Thanks. I havn't descriminated between condensing or non condensing boilers yet. I'll put more focus on that as I look deeper into this project.
