The main reason this is not done is because it pushes heated or cooled air from inside the shop to the outside, meaning that you then have cold or hot air coming in to your shop. Of course, if you only use “natural” air conditioning (also known as open doors and windows) in your shop like I do, then it wouldn’t be a problem.

Also, if you have any gas operated appliances in the same air space, there can be problems with actually pulling combustion gasses into the room as make up air.
