The house we purchase this summer has a small glitch. The baseboard hotwater heat clangs like crazy. I've had this type of heating before but not nearly as noisy as this - I'm talking gun-shot loud! Like the house is going to explode! It seems to be mostly in one room - the bedroom -Forgive me if I can't form a complete sentence, I seem to be having trouble sleeping lately;-) I've been keeping the heat at 60 so it won't run as much but it's still clanging away.
The bedroom is aprox 30X18 with wrap around heating elements on 3 sides. Someone suggested that a larger expansion tank is needed. Like I know what that is! The whole heating system is only about a year old so that seemed odd to me.
Does anyone know what causes this noise and the least expensive way to eliminate it? Thanks in advance,
Sleepless in Vermont;-)
