I have a very old home 100 plus years old lines to the radiators are in very bad shape and rusted and not safe can Pex be used for this instead of copper ? I need to replace every one and just the time saved and not including the money saved would be welcome news

You can certainly use PEX to replace copper, but in closed loop heating applications oxygen barrier PEX should be used instead of the non-barrier. Otherwise, the installation would be the same as with regular pipes. Once old piping is removed, the same holes can be used to route the PEX pipe. When spacing allows, you can also use bend supports instead of elbows to reduce pressure drop and number of connections. Furthermore, if your heating system water does not mix with potable water, you can use regular brass PEX fittings (not the lead-free version) or poly PEX fittings, which will also help to offset the installation cost.
