Repainting Galvanized Metal Ductwork

Hello,
I'm getting ready to move into my new loft and one of the first items I want to address is painting the ductwork. It is galvanized metal that has already been painted. I have two questions:
1- Can I just paint right over it after cleaning it?
2- What kind of heat-sensitive paint should I use?
Thanks!

Yes, you can repaint after cleaning. Any interior paint will do fine, the duct isn't warm enough to require heat resistant paint.
