    Most -all compressors generate heat. Therefore can't be sealed up. Seen a lot of compreeors moved outside (noise and space) but obviously need ventilation - could vent to the shed - then there is the dust issue you spoke of, if vented outdoors as most are -small tin sheds to keep the rain off. well they end up rusty. Possibly shed vent with free flow (polyfibre? ) dust filtration?

    It really depends on compressor usage, and the airtightness and volume of the enclosure.
    If usage is light (compressor does not continuousl) enclosure is "air loose" and/orbig enough then ventilation is not needed.
    My enclosure has temp and humidity monitors and it's ventilated with a 100mm computer case type fan rigged up so that when the compressor starts so does the fan and it runs for some 10 minutes after the compressor stops. But this is only needed when the compressor runs continuously which is rare.
