Tapping radiator/pipe? in kitchen
Hi, when I put the central heating on, I can hear a tapping sound in the living room. On the other side of the wall is the kitchen radiator. I can't see any wet or moisture either living room side or kitchen side. It appears to be the only radiator to make a noise when central heating is on. Any ideas what it could be? Someone has already suggested that the valves may be incorrectly fitted? I haven't a clue, so any suggestions would be really appreciated. This is a new central heating system throughout house, following a house fire.
