Single Stage Vs. Two Stage Air Compressor
While single stage units are less expensive, two stage units are a better choice in several ways. First, they operate at lower RPMs allowing auto air compressor to put out more CFM than a comparable-sized single stage compressor. Running at lower RPM's also lets the unit run on less heat, which means less moisture will build-up in the tank. Another big benefit is they produce less noise, which is great for indoor environments.
