Question for the plumbers! When I have my central heating on, after about an hour the pipes in the bedroom start tapping. They will tap for 20 seconds then be quiet for a minute then tap again, coincides with the boiler firing. I have a combi boiler and the central heating system is relatively new, about 10 years old.
The tapping can be stopped by turning the radiator in the bedroom off, which worked for a while but doing that is causing damp in there, so if anyone has a solution it would be very much appreciated as it's driving me mad!
One more possibly relevant point, this all seemed to start after I had a new bathroom last year, which involved replacing the radiator for a towel rail. This was done by a professional plumber.
Thanks for the reply. I'm not sure TBH. All the work he did was in the bathroom and consisted of taking out a radiator and moving one pipe slightly closer to the other to accomodate the towel rail. All the pipe work is under the floor upstairs under tiles in the bathroom and a laminate floor in the bedroom so it will be difficult to check the clips.
The tapping isn't coming from the bathroom, it comes from near the bedroom radiator, could a clip have come loose perhaps?
Would the only way to check be to rip the floor up?
