Register Heater in Bathroom


Hello,

Can anyone tell me if I can replace my upstairs bathroom duct vent with an electric in wall register style heater? I have an old house and the previous owners ran ductwork to the bathroom, but the air flow is very weak. And the bathroom is part of a bedroom and hoping that it would help heat it also, as there is no vents in the room. I was planning on putting in a wall heater anyway, but just thought of replacing the vent so that I do not have to tear into the wall. I appreciate any suggestions.

Hello and welcom Jeff40, to the best darn DIY'r site on the web.

You could do what you are suggesting, or, put a booster fan on the duct run that goes to that bathroom, switched to turn on when your furnace fan turns on.
