Kettling

I have a baxi bermuda back boiler which kettles when left on a high boiler setting - setting 3 onwards (max 6). If my room thermastat is low (about 20/21 degrees C), the boiler kettles quiet badly.

I have bled the rads will no signs of air (the bathroom heated towel rail sometimes has air probably because this is the highest point).

The sytem has also been cleansed with inhibitor etc.

I want to put the boiler setting on high but the kettling is just too loud and bangs the pipes so I have to keep it on about 2.

The system is about 25 years old. Its been serviced with no problems.

Any thoughts?

You likely have deposits built up in the boiler. Sometimes they can be removed with a de-scaling compound, but not always. Something like de-scaling is not a DIY job. I suggest you contact your dealer or service company.

Is this likely to be a big job. By big I mean physically getting inside the boiler of is it some kind of treatment you pour into the system?

De-scaling

It is done chemically.
