    Open all the faucets in your house, for two minutes. Check that drains are clear.

    There really is no banging in the lines. It only happens every 5 or 6 hours. My plumber says it's $200/hour to have a guy sitting here waiting for it to happen, I guess that's my only solution to the problem.

    I doubt it's air. More likely water hammer. You can fit a water hammer arrestor which will suppress the noise. See link for info.
