The manufacturer does not have the start up amperage on this compressor. It has a 15 amp breaker and would need a minimum dedicated 20 amp circuit. You would not be able to use an extension cord with the unit.

answer 2
I called Tennessee and the MFG told me 81 Decibels. I will tell you this unit is not 81 decibels. It is much quieter. You will not be disappointed.The 1720 RPM motor and pump are smooth and quiet. If you want ultra quiet, there are less powerfull units rated at 60 DB on the market. Typical oiless pancake compressors are in the 88-92 DB range. Belted units are typically 75-80 DB.

The Puma air compressor has a single stage pump that is oil lubricated for long life. The compressor also has the die cast aluminum cylinder and head for heat dissipation. This compressor would be a very good compressor for home use.
