When looking for an air compressor, you will ideally be able to find a machine that has a reasonable up-front price, and that’s going to last a long time and require minimal repairs.
So before choosing an air compressor it’s crucial to estimate the true life-cycle cost of a compressor.
Purchase Price + Energy Costs + Parts & Service + Additional Factors
= True Life Cycle Cost
A high purchase price can be outweighed by a reliable company, low maintenance needs, and easy-to-find parts.
Parts and service
This cost is factored in with preventative maintenance costs, usage, and replacement part prices and availability.
Quality air compressors can reduce energy costs by 25% and will leave you with a lower utility bill in the long run.
These include factors such as demand charges, load/unload cycle time, air leak losses, non-production operation, system pressure set points and individual components that can make a difference in the cost of your compressor’s operation when combined.
