Often taken for granted

Air Compressors

The unsung heroes of your shop

The shop workhorse


Often off in the corner or hiding out behind the shop lives the heart of your shop’s air system –  the air compressors.  We frequently forget this beating heart and tend to overlook it’s importance. 

 They require regular oil changes to extend their life. Also,  some compressors have wearable belts that need to adjustment and eventual  replacement.

Air Compressors - keep them running

Air compressors require regular maintenance to keep running at peak efficiency.  There are many benefits to developing a preventive maintenance program, including avoiding unplanned equipment downtime, which always happens at the most inopportune times.

Having to call a technician on an emergency basis is always more expensive and inconvenient.  Air compressors running properly can result in lower energy costs, longer equipment life, and may prevent a voided warranty.

 A preventive maintenance check should include examining intake vents for blockage, cleaning/changing air filters, and unclogging/cleaning pipes.

Managing condensation is critical, as is lubricating internal components, changing the oil filters, and keeping gears well greased.


Belts wear out and should be inspected regularly and replaced as needed.


A well organized maintenance program can prevent problems in the future — it’s a wise investment in your shop.  The Lift Guy LLC has the expertise to keep your air compressors running like they did when they were new.
