    I have a new, tall 4-column vertical radiator that was fitted in the summer. Now it's on a lot I'm noticing it's very noisy. A sort of rushing, whistling noise like you sometimes hear from hot water pipes.

    I've tried adjusting the valve (Honeywell Valencia I think) but anything other than off, it is still noisy.
    Listening carefully, the noise does seem to be coming from the radiator itself not the pipe/valve as I can hear it all the way up the radiator.

    My other radiators (mostly old panel but also some modern columns) don't have this effect. If I recall it is plumbed in using new modern plastic though it has chrome up-pipes from the floorboards.

    Could it just be a 'feature' of this rad? Or are there other causes I could diagnose and address?
