    You're still going to use heat at least 6 months out of the year, so stick with the hot water heat. You can design a better, simpler AC system by keeping supplies in the ceiling. Se if you can get the walls insulated.

    I'm a fan of hot air heat.

    If I had hot water heat, with cast iron rads, you couldn't pay me enough to get rid of it though.

    replace the bolier and reap the benifits of a higher effincie and put in a unico system. leats amout on damage to the home and works great near the shore as for as humidity control. a furnace cant give you the quality heat that hot water can imo

    Thanks for all the input

    I decided that I am going to replace the boiler thus keeping the hot water heat

    I will have to decide on either conventional AC or unico high velocity system

    Can anybody help with the pros and cons ?

    When installed correctly, both types of systems work great.

    When ever possible we prefer to install conventional.

    The blower of a high velocity system, and the supply are expensive enough that you can get a VS blower for a conventional, and have the same humidity control of a HV system.
