Unlike other sources of power, however, an air compressor does not require any form of conversion from other types of energy such as heat at the point its application, which makes it one of the cleanest and most sustainable types of energy source. The compressed air produced by the machine involves translatory forces in a variable force field. This means that since most of its energy is generated “in-house” or in a controlled environment, owners have more control over it compared to other utility such as electricity and gas.

While there are a dozen forms of energy to choose from, the power produced by air compressors is more flexible because they can be operated in areas where there is no stable source of energy. Moreover, in terms of safety, air compressors eliminates the dangers of electric shock and fire hazard since they run cooler than electrical tools and have the advantage of not being damaged by overload or stalling.
