When purchasing an air compressor, it is critical to understand the total equipment life cycle cost to ensure you are selecting the most efficient compressor. Consider the following questions before you purchase a compressor to save time and money in the future:
How much energy does my current system require to meet demand?
Would reducing maintenance requirements allow internal resources to be used elsewhere?
Could a centrifugal compressor offer a solution for cost savings?
AirCompare will give you insight into the potential cost savings hidden in your air compressor system. To get started you will need:
- HP or kW rating of current compressors
- Annual operating hours
- Energy rate (from local energy supplier)
