Baseboard Heat Noise
When my baseboard heating unit turns on, in some rooms, it sounds like someone is taking a hammer to the pipes. What is the cause and how can I fix it?
Re: Baseboard Heat Noise
I've had the same problem and here's what I've read... Good luck!
Baseboard heat noise solutions:
Plastic gliders (not metal)
Expansion compensators on long runs
Outdoor-air reset control (water cycles continuously, varies boiler temp)
Banging (water boiling check temp, should be less than 210 at all times have read less than 220.)
TURN BOILER TEMP DOWN! this is dangerous.
Banging (pipe expanding against too-small hole in floor or wall)
high heat caulking compound applied to hole
Outdoor-air reset control mitigate but not solve
Banging (fast-closing zone valve before circulator stops)
Check expansion tank
fast-closing cause this: Honeywell, Erie, small White Rogers
slow-closing solve: Taco, large White Rogers
