Is it ok to put 2 vents on one duct?


I need to heat 2 rooms with 1 duct. The vent to the living room is about 6 feet off the floor and I was going to put one in the bedroom just off the baseboard. Is it alright to do it this way?

It overheats the living room as is...so as long as it not a problem, its more than enough heat coming out.

You can do it.

But, been to a lot of places that said teh same thing. The run use to over heat the single room it served. But, once it was piped to a second room also. It wasn't enough for both rooms.

Try it, if it works, fine. If not, you end up putting in a second run anyway.
