    Hot water on - Radiators heat up from return leg

    Hi, I think we have had this issue since we moved into our house about 6 years ago. I've adapted how we heat our hot water (set to short periods and times of day) so it hasn't effected us much but after looking into this further I think there is seriously something wrong with our system.

    Radiator Sizing

    How accurate are the online guides for sizing a radiator and are there any which are more accurate. I've moved into an ex-rental house which has a relatively new Main boiler but the rads are older than God and take up so much wall space, I want to replace them with new more efficient radiators...

    No really apparent close to the boier, but the noise comes from the pipes and rads all over the house. Is it possible to alter the speed of the pump and get rid of the noise that way? Or is it just what they do? I remember other pumps making a noise but they were a low, deeper hum, this noise...
