I moved into this house 5 years ago that has 2 zone heat. The upstairs has hot water baseboard heat which has always been a little noisy on start up (ticking, snapping etc. the usual). This summer we added a new room upstairs and completely renovated the bathroom. Last night when I turned on the upstairs heat for the first time, the brand new baseboard in the new room and the bathroom was as noisy, if not more so, than the old rooms had been. I guess my question is, with a brand new installation like this, couln't the plummer have done something to eliminate or reduce this? Haven't there been new products etc. over the years? Was he just lazy and took shortcuts? Is there any chance that since this was the initial startup it will get quieter with use? Note the heat is great-no problem with that. Thanks in advance for any input.

Thanks for your reply but I'm a bit of a novice at this. When you say the air control procedure was inadequate is this due to something done during installation or is it an exisitng problem? I guess what I'm trying to determine is if the plummer did a bad install or not. As it is, since the extension was done we hear a ticking in the wall where the hot water line is from it rubbing against the stud. I would complain to the plummer but from what I've been told it's to late now, there's nothing that can be done about that. Thanks again.
