Notice a click…click…click… whenever you turn on your radiator? That noise alone is enough to make a homeowner crazy, but there’s more to it than that. You know the radiator didn’t always make that noise, so there must be something wrong, right? Well, you’ve come to the right place — we’re going to let you in on a few of the potential reasons your electric radiator is making a clicking noise:

What Makes Your Radiator Click

How your electric radiator component is built may be contributing to the amount of noise it’s making. However, it may also be the location of your radiator.

Manufacturers suggest when your radiator heats up it may be creating a clicking noise, but don’t worry just yet, a noise doesn’t mean there’s necessarily a malfunction of your unit.

Air bubbles trapped inside the water system may also be a factor in the noise coming from your unit. But why does it make a noise? It comes from the air bubbles being heated and working alongside the aluminum components.

Remember, some noises are normal and don’t mean that your appliance is breaking down. Expansion in the radiator once it heats up can also cause your component to make clicking noises.

Still Not Sure What The Problem Is?

A professional can tell you what’s wrong with your electrical radiator, if you’re experiencing conflicting noise.

Ready to simply rip it out and toss it in the trash? No, don’t throw your electric radiator away just because you hear a noise.
