I've got 4-5 separate machines in my basement, in a relatively small area.
It does get somewhat warm in there, which is a concern, but I haven't seen
problems yet (this is the third summer).  I wouldn't run a dehumidifier
there, as they can generate a LOT of heat.  In the winter, I find that they
contribute to the warmth of the area.
