I have two thermostats in my house, one for upstairs and one for down. Both existed when the home was purchased. The one upstairs has a function where that I can set the temperature and press, "hold temperature" so it maintains whatever setting. The one downstairs does not have this function. The temperature upstairs appears to hold to the set temperature much better and I was wondering whether it was due to the "hold temperature" function on the thermostat. The temperature downstairs appears to fluctuate two degrees therefore the heat turns on and off more often causing the house to become cool when off and hot when on. Also, I get a great deal of clicking and knocking from the baseboards. Can someone offer some advise to solving any of these problems? Thanks

Interesting..I have a digital (Lennox L21)and an old dial type thermostat downstairs. Is this anticipator found on the digital which is the one I use. I assumed the old dial thermostat is not in use. Or could it be that the old is still operational?

The clicking is from expansion. The knocking may suggest that you have air in the system and may need to purge. Check the air pressure in the expansion tank at the boiler. Follow the recommendations on the tank and add or reduce the pressure.
