We recently installed a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator in Alexandria VA and wow, what an elevator! Sometimes referred to as the “glass tube elevator” or “vacuum elevator,” these systems are defined by their panoramic design and use of air as a method of operating.
Pneumatic elevators like this are energy-efficient, comfortable, and look stunning in just about any home out there. Alexandria VA is a beautiful location as well—located right on the Potomac River and very close to downtown Washington D.C., it’s clear that Alexandria VA offers numerous benefits. We look forward to working in the Alexandria VA area, whether it’s to install another Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator or some other home elevator.
Whether homeowners choose to live in Alexandria to enjoy the historic center of Old Town or are just looking to be in close proximity to the numerous jobs offered in the area, it’s clear that Alexandria and surrounding areas such as Fairfax County pack a number of benefits for their residents. The homes of Alexandria VA are rich with history and charm which is why we get so excited whenever we have the opportunity to work in the area.
For this home, which was a spacious end-unit with beautiful open spaces, we went with a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator to help save on space and cut down on the footprint you see with more traditional options. This model in particular, the PVE37, is a two-passenger residential elevator that is as stylish as it is useful. Its aluminum and polycarbonate cylinder structure looks fantastic in any home, especially in this one with its three-stop system and remote head in black. Modifying this stunning brick home to make it more functional for its residents was truly special.
Using pneumatics as the method of powering an elevator makes for a totally unique experience. You don’t need a pit, hoist way, or machine room—meaning that installation itself is smooth and easy. The sleek interior LED lighting and fan, clear sides, and ease-of-use are all appealing reasons to consider installing your very own Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator. The PVE37 is a great model and we look forward to installing them in more Alexandria VA homes.
