The Best Kind of Residential Elevator for Your DC Home

Posted on April 20, 2020

If it wasn’t already, your home has probably become the most important place in your life. When it comes to investing in the comfort and safety of your home in Washington, DC, you might have considered adding a residential elevator. You have many great options for the right kind of elevator for your home, and the three listed below are among the best.

Standard Models

At Signature Elevators, we offer a number of traditional elevator models from Cambridge Elevating, Waupaca Elevator, and Federal Elevator Systems. These standard home elevators are very adaptable and often the best fit for any need or preference. Standard residential elevators can come as roped hydraulic, drum drive, and more. If you don’t have much space, then consider an MRL (machine room-less) home elevator with a smaller pump and controller that can fit into a small closet or even a garage. Nearly all standard residential elevators have very customizable cabs and doors, so you can make them fit seamlessly into the current design of your DC home.

Stiltz Lift  

If you are looking for an elevator to accommodate limited space, then the Stiltz Lift elevator could be the perfect choice for a small Washington, DC home. It is a remote-controlled, two-stop elevator, meaning that you can have it sent up or down without needing a passenger inside.

And Signature Elevators offers both the duo and trio designs, the trio Stiltz Lift being the best for wheelchairs in particular. Overall the Stiltz Lift is compact and convenient. That means that it can be installed nearly anywhere, even in a small DC home.

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator

Lastly is the pneumatic vacuum elevator, which operates with no cables or pullies at all. The pneumatic vacuum elevator is a more high-tech option, but it is certainly worth the cost if you are looking for something clean and energy-efficient. It lifts and lowers using air pressure in a vacuum tube. The elevator and the cab are both made of a polycarbonate cylinder that is reinforced with aluminum. A turbine fan works to change the air pressure, either pushing the elevator up or releasing air to let gravity gently lower it. The pneumatic vacuum elevator is also simpler to install and very low maintenance. It is a great choice if you would like to update the look of your house.
