Default Air compressor alternatives

Hi everyone,

I have completed my engraving setup at my home. I purchased a California air compressor thinking on a budget, but my studio is on the second floor of my house and with the floors being wood it really reverberates in the entire house when it kicks on. I'm looking for alternatives that run quiet so I can engrave after 8 when the man of the house has gone to bed.

I'm thinking of using nitrogen. I am wondering who else uses it and what size tank is good. It has to be small enough I can get it up 12 steps but I don't want to be filling little ones constantly. How long does it last before a fill is needed?

Thank you!
