my radiators sound like the wind!
I recently moved into a home with a steam system. for the first two months there were two radiators that didn't omit heat regularly. the rest worked great. the two in question are the two farthest away from the boiler. one of them is on the third floor and you can feel a section of the vertical pipe where it stops being warm. I don't know if it possible to have a vertical blockage or what.
after flooding from last week's storm we had to replace the boiler's motor. when we did that and fired up the system, the two radiators mentioned started working perfectly. But within a day or so, they had become more intermittent. many of the other radiators in the house also started making a noise that sounds like wind coming out of them. we tried to use shims and make sure that each radiator is property sloped back to the pipe, but the issue appears to be persisting. this never happened before Our pressure gauge measures around 1.0 so we don't think that could be the cause, but aren't sure. any ideas?
