In response to Re: baseboard heating sounds
: On the 2nd flr I am experiencing a consistent, loud, tinny, whiny sound in my baseboard when, I think, heating is trying to come up to the 2nd floor. (Oil furnace, forced hot water system presumably). This is very similar to "water hammer" but it is not a pulsating, pounding but a consistent, almost straining loud tinny noise. Any leads on what might be causing it and what might be a solution step would be most appreciated. Have had 4-5 service calls in the last 3 weeks on the furnace because the pilot keeps going out.

Air in the system can cause gurgling/banging noises. The noise that you're hearing could possibly be traveling through the piping from the circulator at the boiler. If you have any shut off or balancing valves on the system, make sure they are fully opened.
Good Luck. e-plumber
