Question by whoknows53: what makes steam heat pipes clank?
I have an oil furnace, only 3 years old, radiators (old standup type) steam heat. Last night two radiators just stopped working; one, a baseboard type in the bathroom is still working. The pipes are clanking and banging, unbelievably. The bathroom radiator sounded like a very loud popcorn machine. Someone mentioned that the furnace might need to be bled. Does this sound like something that can be fixed just by working on the furnace, or would the radiators be involved. I need to know how much access the repair tech would need, so I can determine whether I need to be home or if I can leave it up to someone else. If they would just need access to the basement, I would be comfortable not being at home.
