Questions Before Buying An Airless Paint Sprayer


Thinking of Buying an Airless Paint Sprayer? If you're looking to buy an airless sprayer, you probably already know the benefits this tool can provide. It’s also widely known that paint sprayers can enable you to complete more jobs in more less time. However, not all airless paint sprayers are created equal. But what if you’re not sure which sprayer is right for you? Follow AEROPRO answers below for help.


What types of jobs will the airless sprayer be used?

Whether residential, factory, commercial, industrial, or property maintenance, think about not just your immediate needs but anything you might want to tackle in the future. Smaller airless sprayers are suitable for DIY projects like fences, decks and interior rooms. Larger professional models can handle bigger commercial jobs like painting exteriors of homes or apartment buildings. Larger sprayers with more powerful motors are ideal for bigger jobs.


What will you be using it for?

Airless paint sprayers come in a range of sizes and power levels. Consider what types of projects you plan to use the sprayer for most. Will you need it for small DIY tasks like painting furniture? For larger exterior house painting? Larger sprayers with more powerful motors are ideal for bigger jobs, while more compact models will suffice for smaller tasks. Think about not just your immediate needs but anything you might want to tackle in the future.


What type of paint will you be using?

The type of the coating you use is key to choosing the right airless sprayer and components. Check that the sprayer you're considering has enough power and adjustable pressure levels to properly atomize the paint you'll use. Also consider whether you need a sprayer that can handle specialty paints like flammables.

Here’s a general breakdown of coatings by weight:

Light to medium coatings: stains, lacquers, enamels, oils, latex

Medium to heavy coatings: primers, block fillers, elastomerics


What spray tip sizes do you need?

The spray tip determines the spray pattern width and flow rate. Wider fan tips are good for broad surfaces like siding, while fine tip sizes work for detail work. The tip size controls the amount of paint being released and the size of the spray pattern. Airless paint spray tips are sized using a 3 digit number such as 515. The first number has to do with the width of the spraying fan and the last 2 digits refer to the size of the hole or orifice the paint sprays through in thousands of an inch. So the larger the number, the more paint that will pass through the tip.


How large is the project area?

Think about the size of surfaces you'll be painting with the sprayer. Smaller project areas under a couple hundred square feet will only require a compact, portable sprayer. For painting larger houses or exterior surfaces, a sprayer with a longer hose, Wheels and bigger paint capacity will minimize the need to stop and refill. Make sure to select a sprayer adequate for the square footage you need to cover.


How much are replacement parts?

No matter how careful you are, airless paint sprayer parts like tips, hoses, and filters will eventually need to be replaced with use over time. Check how readily available replacement parts are for any sprayer you’re considering and the typical cost. Models with pricier proprietary parts can cost more in the long run.


Is it a quality brand?

As with any tool purchase, going with a recognized brand is your best bet for getting a reliable sprayer that will hold up. Well-known brands AEROPRO have a reputation for making durable sprayers designed for longevity. Avoid going for a really cheap model, which is likely to break down faster. A moderately priced sprayer from a trusted brand is your best choice.
