How do you get compressed air?
Compressed air is made of the same air you breathe in and out, but that air is compressed into a smaller size and kept under pressure. When you take atmospheric air and then physically force it into a smaller volume, the molecules take up less space, and the air is compressed.

What can I use instead of compressed air?
Isopropyl alcohol, a compressor, an ESD-safe brush: all this from just one StackExchange thread. Unless it's a device where literally nothing can reach the dust except air, you don't have to pretend you work in a clean room on archaeology finds.

How much does compressed air cost?
Compressed air is an on-site generated utility. Very often, the cost of generation is not known; however, some companies use a value of 18-30 cents per 1,000 cubic feet of air.
Does compressed air get hot?
Cooling is a crucial step in the compressed air process. The ideal gas law tells us when the pressure on any constant volume of gas increases, the temperature also increases. Compressed air is no exception; it can become as hot as 300 degrees F.Jun 14, 2016
Why is compressed air so expensive?
Compressed air is 8-times more expensive than electricity: It takes a large amount of energy to compress air and most of that energy disperses as heat. Do not waste that heat! With a heat recovery system, you will stretch your energy further and reclaim that heat.
Is WD 40 compressed air?
So I was moving between cases this weekend and my wife was helping me. We figured we'd clean everything while moving the parts when she accidentally grabbed WD40 instead of the compressed air.Feb 3, 2019

Don't use a vacuum cleaner. A vacuum can create static electricity that can damage computer components. A vacuum can also create enough suction to make your fans spin hard enough to damage them. Don't use a feather duster or rag, either.
Can I use a hair dryer instead of compressed air?
Hair dryers don't have enough pressure or flow to do a good cleaning job compared to compressed air. The nozzle is not small and concentrated, either. That would not really be harmful (if you don't use heat) but it won't do a good job.
Can compressed air damage PC?
Compressed (canned) air will do absolutely zero damage to your computer, even if you get the refrigerant (the stuff that blows out the nozzle when the can is sideways or upside-down) on your CPU/GPU/RAM/Motherboard.Feb 24, 2013
Can compressed air run out?
