A. Replace rads with moden ones. (A radiator is a radiator, however at 20+ years waterways may be getting blocked and if you are changing to a sealed(presurised)system then yes change them for definate)

B. Change boiler. At 20+ yes the boiler is tired and needs changing to a band A stainles steel heat exchanger condensing boiler

C. Complete new heating/water system. Yes either a combi or a system boiler and a unvented cylinder.
