Having an elevator in your home does not mean that you have to break your energy budget. All our home lifts use vacuum technology. This has several advantages over older elevator models. Our vacuum elevators use air pressure to lift and gently lower the cabin. As a result, the elevator itself uses an extremely small amount of electricity, ranging from none during descent to 4.7 kilowatts during ascension on standard models. All of our air driven home elevators are operated by 220 Volts and range from 25-35 Amps.
If you are one of those people who always forget to schedule maintenance for your appliances, don’t worry! Our residential elevators have very few moving parts and do not require any lubrication. Since the design of our elevators is so simple, you only need to call us for a replacement seal every four to five years or 15,000 rides.
Even if you plan on moving in the future, you don’t have to leave your elevator behind. PVE manufactures completely enclosed elevators that are not built into the framework of your home. This means that the self-contained home lifts can be moved to your new home if you decide to relocate in the future. You can even change the elevator’s location inside your existing home if you remodel or add on to your home.
Pneumatic vacuum elevators are fully certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and have been a tested and proven revolutionary change to the elevating industry over the course of the last ten years. If you need a safe, reliable, and attractive lift in your home without the mess and cost of a traditional residential elevator, give us a call to get you in touch with your local authorized PVE dealer .
