In my opinion, the smartest thing I did was put my dust collector in a separate room adjacent to my shop. I don’t have to listen to it, it doesn’t take up room in my shop, and fine dust that makes it through the cannister is outside my shop space. The issue of pumping heated air out of the shop is valid but I rationalize this by considering that the dust collector is not running all the time. I only turn it on when I need it. It does run continuously for long periods when I am sanding. Just wanted to comment. By the way I have the largest 110 volt Grizz with the pleated filter and a shop made chip separator. I have4” runs of PVC and my longest is 20’ from the chip separator.
