FAQs about Compressor Servicing in Bristol

How do I choose a good air compressor?

Selecting the appropriate air compressor hinges on your needs. For light tasks, opt for a small, portable model, while industrial tasks demand a powerful, stationary unit. Key considerations include the intended purpose, required pressure, volume (CFM or m3/m), power source, noise level, and choosing a reliable manufacturer for guaranteed efficiency and reliability.

Are air compressors expensive to run?

The operational cost of air compressors depends on their type, size, usage, and energy efficiency. Electric models are often more cost-effective for continuous use. Regular maintenance can also reduce long-term expenses. It’s best to select a model that precisely fits your needs to minimise running costs.

What’s included in air compressor maintenance?

Specific air compressor maintenance needs vary depending on the system. Standard practices involve a thorough visual examination, lubrication, modifying air dryer filters, checking blowers and gauges, oil refilling, performing thermal imaging reviews, and checking for leaks.
