Four Times That A Rented Air Compressor Will Make Your Life Easier

Posted on: 5 May 2016

If you own an air compressor, you'll be well-acquainted with how many practical uses it has around the home and yard. If you don't own this device, however, you don't necessarily need to run out and buy one — but you could benefit from renting one. Many equipment rental businesses keep air compressors in stock, giving you the opportunity to take one home, check it out and, ideally, be pleased with how it's made your life easier. Here are four jobs that you'll get done in a breeze with an air compressor by your side.

Changing Your Tires

Motorists who live in a region with snowy winters and possess a do-it-yourself attitude might spend time mounting snow tires on their vehicles at the start of the winter and then removing them in favor of summer tires once spring arrives. This job can be time-consuming if you're doing it by hand. However, with an air compressor and the right attachment, you'll be able to loosen and tighten the nuts on your tires quickly and get the job done in a jiffy.

Painting A Fence Or Deck

If you have a wooden fence or deck, you'll commonly find yourself performing maintenance tasks on it every few summers. One of these jobs is painting it, once you've thoroughly sanded each plank of wood. The painting process can be arduous, especially if you need to apply multiple coats — but it's not hard with an air compressor. This will, with a paint reservoir and adjustable nozzle, allow you to apply a steady, consistent coat of paint that leaves you with a desirable end result.

Decorating At Certain Holidays

For people who go all-out at Christmas and Halloween with inflatable decorations indoors and outdoors, there's a better way to inflate these decor items than with a hand pump. Rent an air compressor with the right nozzle attachment and you'll be able to blow up these inflatable objects in a fraction of the time.

Installing Hardwood Flooring

Installing hardwood flooring on your own is a significant project, but an air compressor and a nail gun attachment will make the project go much smoother. It's difficult to nail each plank of hardwood into the floor with a hammer and nails — and you'll be extremely sore by the end of the day. With a nail gun and air compressor, you'll be able to anchor the planks down with impressive speed.
