Ernie Wisner wrote:Splitting the ducting into smaller diameter is a very tricky thing to do. each split off handles a different amount of flow unless it is done just right and the flow is totally constant where you split it off.; laminar flow can and will bite you if anything is slightly off.
not generally something i suggest even at the best of times. I would not do it unless i had a really really good reason for it; introduces to many variables.

If you have some way of restricting the one that heats more, then you could fine-tune the system with experience. You might have problems with too much restriction unless you are very careful.
