A 6' oval pipe is only good for about 90 to 70 CFM of air. 6 rd is 110 CFM 8" rd is 225 CFM
paulSo would it be better to go with a rectangle duct then? Like a 10x3.5 or 12x3.5 to get it

It would help if you run 8" to the up stairs run. I would run the new hot air run in 8" and
split it into too 6" up stairs, one to bath and one to main part. Run a 8" return air and try

If you only have 6 hot air opening then you should leave them all open so you don't over heat
the furnace. A blower can only built up so much static pressure, after that it will just start

This is a engineering question . I lay out a hot air ducts 1.0 static pressure and return air
to a .o8 static pressure. Using these numbers you can get 150 CFM of air through the 3.5x12.
110 CFM throu...

from the furnace to the rectangle duct is a 6" round and also from the end of the rectangle
duct to the reg...
