    Noisy Radiator

    Noisy Radiator 16th Apr 19 at 3:24 PM
    The radiator in our bedroom is really noisy when the heating first switches on, it wakes me up every morning.

    I've know have clicking type noises intermittently when first warming up but ours is a combination of clinking and banging type noises. Not just one noise but many.
    We have recently had a new boiler and hot water cylinder and the heating system has been flushed and radiators bled.

    Any ideas what might be causing the problem / how we might stop the noise?

    sounds like air in the system, can take a while to get rid of after heating works
    Never, under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

    I have been repeatedly bleeding the radiators and there is no more air escaping, so I think there must be another cause.

    Have you been topping up the system afterwards and try to bleed when system is off

    The trv might be now on the return which some valves don't like
    I'm only here while I wait for Corrie to start.

    You get no BS from me & if I think you are wrong I WILL tell you.

    How would I know if the TRV is on the return?

    If it is on the return, is the fixed to swap it to the other end?

    I get the same in my bedroom. In my case itís the pipes expanding and contracting as they heat and cool.
