Central Heating Question

Would a combi boiler be compatible with radiators which are 40 years old?

Present boiler Ideal Mexico 8 years too expensive to repair. Needs replacement heat exchanger etc.

Combi boilers are compatable with all types of radiaitors, I would strongly recommend system be power flushed prior to running new boiler to clean the rads. Also make sure you have fitted a system protection device i.e. magna-clean as this will aid the protection of the boiler/pump. Once completed add suficient inhibitor for water treatment.
