Response to O/T Compresser

You'll have more compressed air inventory, so could run longer until the compressor is required to run. Then it will take that much longer to compress the volume of air held in inventory in the tanks.

With all endless arguments about single stage vs dual stage, compressor cfm, 1 phase vs 3 phase and whatever aside- in general it takes the same approximate amount of energy & work to compress the same amount of air, no matter what is held in the tanks or used by the tools.
