When I am in bed before the heating turns off, I am driven mad by a ticking
noise. It sounds like the pipes or rads are expandind/contracting. I`ve had
the boards up and made sure that the pipes are not rubbing on the joists.
I`ve sprayed WD40 everywhere that could be moving against anything. I`ve run
out of ideas, if anyone else can think of anything I would be grateful.
Usually there are little blue plastic 'spacers' on the radiator brackets to
seperate the rad and bracket that are there for this very reason but a lot
of plumbers never fit them. It is a time consuming job to fit them after as
each radiator needs isolating, emptying and removing in order to fit them.
So you may have to live with the ticking. As I decorated each room and
removed the radiators I put some on then.
