Agreed...as you know metal expands and contracts with heating and cooling and this often makes click/tick sound. If you have stainless steel components in the mix then it could be compounded. From what I understand, Stainless expands at like twice the rate of Carbon steel. And of course the cold ambient temps will make the differential even greater. Are your pipe hangers rigid? That would definitely not help.
