Banging Pipes
Posted by Tom Drummond on April 16, 19101 at 11:19:00:
Hi,
We recently remodeled our home and had a new baseboard heating system installed. The problem is that the pipes bang when the heat turns on. At times it is so bad it sounds like a coal mine, because there are 4 zones and every one knocks and bangs to some degree. We had a heating contractor, different one than the installer, check it out. He said it does not sound like an air problem, but may be due to expansion. He didn't know how to correct the problem other than opening the walls to get at the pipes. He also suggested buying ear plugs. Any ideas on what is causing this and how we might be able to correct it? Could this be corrected by installing a hammer arrester?

Thank you,

-Tom
