Heat duct to garage

Is it OK to run a heat duct into an attached garage?
I would like to run something through the double joists (2x8s) to help keep the temp up a bit.. I have 2 electric space heaters there now for my shop area and can get it to 50deg fairly easily.. If I can do this, is it OK to use a round 4-6" duct, or should I use a rectangular type?
2 years ago we installed a new furnace (100kbtu as opposed to the old 80k).. I don't plan on running a return duct..

Wink

No way ::: Check code there . You cant have the open duct going to the garage. Through the fire wall between the home and the garage. It will cut off your insurance.

Get another electric heater

I agree with the last two post, Not allowed in many area due to risk of CO from cars, fumes from gas can. and so on..

My big question, why up in BTU on the new furnace??
