moving forced heat/air register - under cabinet?

Hello! We are in the middle of designing some renovations to our kitchen, removing a pantry that separates the family room from the kitchen and replacing it with a half wall and counter/cabinets on the kitchen side.

Currently there is a heat/air register on the ceiling of the small kitchen (normal sized ceiling/wall register) . The duct runs up inside the wall that we are planning on converting to a half wall. There will be new kitchen cabinets on the kitchen side of that wall. The only way I can see to keep heat/air in the room is to reroute that duct under the new cabinets and have it come out a 2" register installed in the "kick-plate" section of the cabinets.

Is this acceptable code-wise (or even recommended!)

Thank you!

Glen

Yes you can .We do it all the time You dont say what the wall stack is in the wall. Can be a 3 1/4X10" or 12" Id try and make a 2 1/4 X12 duct to go from it to the toe plate of the cabinet. cut it out for the duct. Use a 2 1/4"X 12" floor register. They fit there put two holes in it for screws.

Ed: Awesome - thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping someone wouldn't come back and say it's not to code... Couldn't figure out any other way to reroute the duct work.

Thank you!
