Steam radiator heating
I recently bought an old house that still has steam radiator heating. I grew up in a house with steam heating so I am used to the normal banging and hissing pipes. My system on the other hand has a really load banging sound that seems to be happening when the system reaches its desired temperature and is turning off or cooling down. The banging is sporadic, one bang then not another for a minute or two. Then bang is loud and can be heard from anywhere in the house. I read up on it and tried the routine fixes such as bleeding the radiator and making sure that the radiators are level. I replaced the steam vents as well. I checked the pipes themselves while they are banging and don't see anything moving. I can't pinpoint exactly where the bang is actually coming from. I've read that there maybe water/air stuck in the pipes but how would I fix that? Not sure if thats even the problem. Any ideas would be much appreciated.
