I have a small shop so I put my dust collector in a different shed and duct it to my shop. The issue of losing conditioned air, here in this high desert, in West Texas, is an important consideration. I have a 6” duct to each tool and at the two that I use the most I installed a 6” duct to the outside with a blast gate at the tool. Now the air comes in right at the tool and exits right at the tool taking the dust out to the dust collector. This make up air works well for me summer and winter. I cool my 13’x23’ shop with two window units.
