Can texture finish and paint cause noxious fumes if painted on exposed hot water (heating) pipes?
I live in an older house that had radiator heat installed many years ago. The pipes for the second floor run right through the first floor (near corners of walls).
Before I bought the house, five years ago, a remodeler painted all the walls and the pipes with a texure coating. I recently had a new boiler installed and it makes the pipes hotter than before. Now I notice a dry, stuffy odor that sometimes causes headaches and slight dizzyness. The local fire department checked for carbon monoxide, sewer gas, natural gas, etc. and found nothing. Nothing in the house has changed, except the hotter temperatures in the pipes. Could the texure coating and/or paint be the cause?
