paint spray gun

I am wanting to purchase a paint spray gun but not sure? What is the difference in gravity fed versus the other? I will be painting the interior of my house and wood furniture. Is it best to roll, or or use air gun in the interior of a home Thanks,

Air powered spray guns are not suitable for spraying walls with latex paint.

A gravity fed gun uses gravity to bring the paint to the spray nozzle. A siphon feed gun uses pressure in the cup to spray.

An airless is the proper sprayer for wall or ceiling paint. I always save spraying for new homes and occasionally an unoccupied dwelling. It is almost always better to brush and roll repaints. What time spraying saves is ate up in masking and cover up. Overspray can travel a good distance
