You mentioned that you just had a heater installed. Remember that when venting outside, your heat goes out with the dust. AC too, if you have it. I don’t understand the outside venting that many posters want to do. If you are collecting the chips inside, the DC is inside, what is the gain? I converted my collector to a Jet pleated filter, and really have no dust. I added a Wen air filter for my hand sanding dust. My 2 HP machine has about a 70 db noise level venting inside. I used 5” steel duct.
