Hello everyone thanks for reading I have my work shop in the basement of my house. I want to put my dust collector in the garage it is attach . But I’m worried about suck air out of the house make it hard on the furnace and a/c . Do you thing that will be a problem. I will run pvc with grounding wire in case static electric can start the finer saw duct on fire. Thanks again

I think you would want to be careful creating a negative pressure in your house particularily if you heat with natural gas. You’d also be pumping warm/cool air out at whatever CFM rating your DC is. That can add to the cost of this hobby.

We have an attic fan in our house and that is similar to what you would be proposing with your dust collection. It pulls air from the house and expels it through the attic. Every once in a while when the seasons overlap, we blow out the pilot lights in our furnace as well as the water heater. We have to be very careful about opening the basement door while the attic fan is on or we end up having to relight everything.

Be careful.
