Be sure the job is permitted and that an inspector looks it over after it is installed.
That protects you down the road. All electricians are not created equal but the permit inspection process insures that your getting safe workmanship.
As a retired residential building inspector, I would encourage you to have a licensed electrician get a permit for the work.

NAB has the best answer in my opinion. I do all my own electrical work in house ,shop, and barn. Ran 10 Gage wire and have had no problems for the last 20 years I've lived here. I have a 220 volt 60 gallon air compressor But a 110 volt small air compressor would do most small jobs.

As it turns out, I’ve lived in that house for almost 20 years and hadn’t realized I had an additional line in the garage that wasn’t used for anything. It was disconnected from whatever it was powering before I moved in. I simply moved it to my compressor and problem solved.

Good decision. Dud electrical work is a big cause of house fires. '"Think of the money I've saved" doesn't count for much when you are standing outside at 3am watching your house burn down.
