Portable air compressors give flexibility to the job both inside and outside the working environment. They're powered by electric, gasoline or diesel engine. A larger portable air compressor often has its own carrying trailer with wheels and handles. You buy a compressor based on its horsepower, pounds per square inch (PSI) and cubic feet per minute (CFM). Choose a portable air compressor to make work quicker and easier. Figure the amount of power you need based on the type of job and air tools used. Know the cubic feet per minute (CFM), such as 5 CFM for small household tools and 10 CFM or more for wrenches or sanders. All air tools have these ratings. Select a gas- or electric-powered engine. Gas gives a higher reliability for frequent use and portability, but consider electric for enclosed areas for its lack of fumes. Pick an air tank based on amount of use time and tools. Large tanks are best for longer use with sanders or grinders and smaller tanks for less time, like wrenches and air hammers. Consider the pump type you need: belt for heavy use or direct-drive for light home use. The quieter belt-drive pump needs periodic oil changes. Buy an inexpensive, small electric portable air compressor for small jobs. These typically operate from a 12-volt power outlet and inflate a 14-inch tire in a few minutes. Get a 150 PSI, 120 volt motor pancake-type air compressor for home use. These light-use models typically carry two air couplers, allowing hook up of two air tools and adequate 25 feet or more air hose. Obtain a larger PSI portable air compressor for bigger jobs, like nailing, with longer continuous use capabilities.

How much for a new one????need price


Size matters if you use pneumatic tools. The tool calls for a minimum amount of CFM (cubic feet per minute of air) and the compressor should meet the demand.
The electrical characteristics is another issue. Figure a circuit amperage just for the compressor. about 10 amps per horse power at 120 volts and half the amps, 5 amps, for 220 volts.
Buying a new compressor may involve a new electric installation to accommodate the electrical requirements.
You can pick up a new basic 120V air compressor for about $75

Why is our a/c blowing room temp air when the setting is on cool?


It sounds like the compressor is not running. This could be due to a faulty thermostat, a bad start capacitor for the compressor, a bad compressor overload or simply a bad compressor. You would need a voltage meter to check all of these components.
