My HW baseboards were making a woody squeaking and snapping when the
heat came on and a less frequent noise when cooling off. I squirted some
WD40 around the pipes where they come up through the floor liberly so
it ran down the two layers of floor. Now I never hear them. I never
heard of this before, one of the random stupid things I do.
Be careful with the oil if you have wood finished flooring. It could
stain and bleed under the finish. Another alternative would be to
slip a piece of plastic from a milk jug between the pipe and the wood
where it's rubbing.
