Why is my heater making a ticking/knocking noise?

Modified on Mon, 27 Nov 2023 at 02:54 PM

The ticking/knocking sound the heater is making is the natural expansion and contraction of the metal components. This is a natural phenomenon that occurs in all metallic objects when subjected to heating and cooling cycle and can cause them to creak, tick or ping on occasion. This is not a manufacturing fault.
