I've recently puchased a new house that has the bolier in the utility
room (Downstairs) and the tank and pump are located in the airing cuboard
- above the stairwell - the system works well - however there is a lot of
LF nose from the pump. There is a cavity below the boiler (trianglar in
shape above the stair well) - The boiler is lagged as too the pipes but I
still hear a LF "rumbling" whenever the heating is running - this is
noticiable in the shower room (Next to the airing cupboard) and more
Any ideas how I can rid the noise??? I've tested each pipe and any
movemnt shows no difference.
Is it the actual pump resonating through the tank that is causing the
Any help would be gratefully recieved.
That brings up the story of the sparks following the architects drawings on
site. The ceiling plan for the wiring configurations were all marked with
LV on them, so the sparks went off and got all the Low Voltage fittings and
carried on with job.
During the architects visit, he noticed all the LV lighting around the
ceilings and asked what the hell was going. It's the Low Voltage lighting
you've got marked on your drawings, he's told. No !!! You silly buggers,
it's short for "LARGE VOLUME" lighting, to be concentrated in the one spot
for display shelving.
Try lifting the pump a bit and put a cushion under it. Or if it's on the
pipes themselves. Try putting some cushioning around the nearest pipe clips
Get some carpet samples and wrap them around the pipes before putting them
back in the clips, or folding them to put under the pump.
