A gas powered air compressor can be a great investment for your household or workplace. Air compressors can be gas or electrically powered depending on the model you choose. They are available in a variety of horse power variations from 3/4 to 5 or larger depending on how much power you need.

Typically a 2hp compressor would work for most households or workplaces. Also, air compressor tanks come in various sizes, typically ranging from about 7 1/2 to 20 gallons. Gas powered compressors can be a great benefit if you are working in an area where an electrical connection isn't available such as a campsite, building site, or outdoor events.

This device can be extremely useful at home or work, as they can be used in a variety of ways. When it comes to home improvement, a gas powered air compressor can be a useful tool in getting the job done due to its many air tool attachments. These attachments have very few working parts and are virtually indestructible if properly cleaned and maintained. Also, because they are powered by air, they run cool and have a longer life expectancy than electrical tools. Available attachments include staple gun, blo-gun, sander, nail gun, sandblaster, and more.

Another benefit of a gas powered compressor is that it can be used as a portable air pump. It is a quick and easy way to inflate tires on your car or bike. This is an essential tool to have if you are working in an auto or welding shop, or just enjoy working on cars in your spare time. Changing your car tire is made simpler with this machine as well, as you can attach an air gun which removes lug nuts quickly and with no effort.

An important factor to consider in the purchase of your model is a certification by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME). This is the only quality control standard for these machines and some compressors don't come with this certification.

A machine with an ASME label is held to a higher standard of quality and safety. The best place to purchase a gas powered air compressor is online because of the large number of product reviews for each make and model. These help you make an informed decision based on prior customer recommendations. Also, these machines are widely available at hardware stores nationwide. With adequate research you can find the make and model that is best suited for your needs.
