Air compressor maintenance
To most people who select an air compressor, the most important factors are overall cost, efficiency, ease of maintenance, and troubleshooting.
Who will fix it?
If an air compressor system can be serviced by in-house personnel, overall operating costs will be less and downtime will be reduced. The more complex the compressor and compressor controls, the more difficult repairs will be. Selecting the simplest system will save you money.
Is it easy to maintain?
Proper maintenance adds to the reliability and efficiency of the air compressor. A compressor that is difficult to maintain causes problems and costs money. Some air compressors and air compressor components are specially designed for easy maintenance.
Are there noise or other site requirements?
Air compressors with low-sound enclosures and vibration isolators can save thousands of dollars in site preparation costs. You may be able to eliminate the expense of a separate compressor room or special foundation.
What's the warranty?
A warranty is the manufacturer's pledge to the customer. Make sure you have a comprehensive warranty on your equipment that is backed by solid manufacturer and distributor support.
