Answer: 
Thank you for the interest in the California Air Tools 1610A Ultra Quiet Air Compressor.
We suggest using the California Air Tools 5510SE. The 5510SE has a 5.5 Gal. air tank giving you more air at start up.
We also suggest isolating into small zones if necessary.
Thank you

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 79 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great little compressor! This compressor came recommended to me by a master engraver that taught a class I took. The machine is indeed very quiet and easily keeps up with the pneumatic engraving machine I purchased. It pumps up to 110 psi very quickly. I have also used the compressor with a brad nailer to hang T&G cedar. Since I have only had the machine for about a month, I can't vouch for longevity. June 24, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best small air compressor I've ever owned I needed a quiet air compressor and this is it. The tank fills quickly, and I can easily converse with others while the motor is running. The price is right, and Home Depot delivered quickly. I would shop Home Depot online again, and I will buy California Air Tools again. April 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super Quiet I needed a very quiet air supply to run a test stand. Did and internet search and found this Ultra Quiet Compressor at Home Depot. I had my doubts, but when I turn it on the first time "WOW". You can easily talk around while it's running. June 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great I didn't believe is that quiet. After watching video how its work I though is fake. But I took risk and purchased. Came on time and first run I made was in my living room and I was surprised. You can use and have conversation at the same time. Great for home use. I use to service my tires (I have three cars) and to blow water from outside water lines for winter time. And believe or not the tool do the job. I'm sure will work perfect with nail gun too. Bad think is , the toll coming plain you need to buy tips and hose. That's why I gave four in value. The overall is just excellent. February 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Air compressor Very quiet, provides very good volume of air. Light weight and small. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Super quiet and keeps up with air demands This compressor is the best. Its quiet, light weight, and can run any nail gun on the market. I want 3 more for all the projects I'm currently working on. I highly recommend this air compressor to the DYIer or professional contractor. January 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent and quiet! Great product and got on good sale over the holidays - $159. Used in lab setting for equipment and works great and not nearly as much as lab-grade ones that go for thousands and noise is not bad at all. January 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good quality air compressor and super quiet I have been waiting for a long time for an air compressor like this, extremely quiet and dependable January 5, 2016
