make a god awful banging, tapping,thumping noise , noises depends on what room your in!
is there anyway to stop this as its driving us mad now? the only room where they are quiet is in the extension and my sons room above.
we've tried having the heating on lower and its still the same

Try bleeding the system (getting the air out)
#2
Airlock, try your radiators as a first step
#3
thanks guys, we bled the pipes and radiators and a guy came out to get the air out of the system and i think its made it worse
#4
Air trapped in pipes- happened to me- release air at radiators by turning and letting air out- may help....

Not a plumber, but maybe the pump needs a check over?

would the pump make the radiator pipes make all this noise?

Not sure, like I say I'm not a plumber,lol, sorry. But you've bled them and had a guy out to do the air thing, call him back

i would hun but he did the same as we did with the little key and the air out of the pipes, thinking on it he didnt look at the boiler for long

whatsThePoint
Turn the mains water tap off slightly to reduced the pressure

whats that got to do with the central heating system??

Either airlock in the system or pipes insufficiently clipped which would cause banging, also if you have access to the pump you could try reducing it's speed, most modern pumps have a speed selection switch

we're thinking the clips might not be enough in the wall, thats if theres any there by the sound of it.
is there anyway to stop the noise if they are not clipped properly ? other then hacking off half the walls in the house

If they are not clipped propery, no, the pipes expand with heat and if they are not properly clipped they will bang, only solution is to clip them

I would defo start with a decent plumber

Make sure that the header tank in the loft has sufficient water in it otherwise even when you bleed your radiators there won't be enough in the system.

Good advice, or if it is a pressurised systemake sure the pressure is above 1 bar
#18
its a combi boiler made by Baxi, the water pressure seems ok its where it says in the book its supposed to be, the pressure is around 2

Unfortunately there's a really loud horrible noise throughout the house just before I flush the toilet.

But it's not the plumbing!! :(

If your heating system has a header tank in the loft then you could add some boiler silencer. Available in b&q and ScrewFix.
