Question about Heating & Cooling
You are correct, the "clicking" sounds you hear are the result of the metal expanding due to heat. You're probably hearing it more now probably because the thickness of the metal parts is thinner than that of those your old house's baseboard heaters. There is really not a whole lot you can do about the issue outside of replacing the units that bother you. Fortunately, these hears are pretty inexpensive to purchase and easy to install when used as a replacement for existing heaters. If unsure or uncomfortable doing the work, contact an electrician.
Bring a short heater's cover and compare the thickness of it to those you find for sale elsewhere. A thinker cover will be less noisy - but will make *some* noise when heating.
I hope this helps & good luck!
