I recently bought an old house and had new heating system installed. Gas fired baseboard hot water system. Everything is new including the baseboard and piping. Heat works very well, but I am new to baseboad heating systems and I have a couple of questions I'm hoping someone can help me out.
1) The second floor baseboards make a lot of noise. When the boiler kicks in, I can hear water running though the pipes first, and then it start to make a pipe banging noise, followed by the fins on the beaseboard chiming. So is this normal. It appears that there is air in the system? is it supposed to be like this?. I've sut off the water valve coming into the house before to repare a bathroom fixture. Does this affect the water levels in the boiler?
2) I only have one zone and the socond floor gets way hotter than the first floor where the thermostat is. Is it expensive to add another zone? I was told by the plumber the I was capable of doing this in the future, but not sure of the costs involved.
