What features should I look for?
There are numerous features depending on the size and type of compressor you are buying. Features like Variable Speed Drive (VSD) may save you more money on energy costs but aren’t suited to every application. The best features to look for with air compressors are the less moving parts the less it’s going to cost in maintenance, things like direct drive airends eliminate belts and gears therefore less parts that may need maintenance. Also look for features like cast iron construction, stainless steel control piping, efficient coolers etc. for efficient and reliable operation reducing long term operating costs.
