I don't know that it would be unlawful (you can ask the local government and code enforcement folks), but you're absolutely free to file a petition against the landlord in the landlord-tenant court if you don't have adequate heat. That the HVAC system/ducts aren't properly set up and the upstairs gets too hot isn't your problem.
I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics. If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable. Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.
