When our baseboard pipes were installed upstairs. They did not make the whole in wall big enough for the pipes. When the heat comes on, the pipes expand and rub against the wood. It makes an awful creaking, snapping noise. We made a temporary fix with graphite. Does anybody have any other suggestions to permanetly eliminate these noises? We have oil heat.
