3 Residential Elevators for Your Fairfax County Home

From Vienna to Arlington, several Fairfax County homes could benefit from an elevator. Available in areas such as Great Falls and Alexandria, to name a few, your home elevator could give you freedom and mobility so that you can age in place. If you are wondering which home elevator type is the best fit for your home, read this guide from Signature Elevators.

Roped Hydraulic

A combination of the best traits of the roped and hydraulic elevator systems, this elevator is designed to give you a smoother ride. A set of steel cables and a hydraulic pump work with the pulley system inside the roped hydraulic elevator. In addition to enhanced stability, the roped hydraulic elevator system often doesn’t need a separate machine room.

Electric Motor

The electric motor elevator, like the Stiltz Lift Elevator, is one of the quickest and most cost-effective to install. The electric motor elevator needs to be plugged in to operate and will not need a machine room. It is also known for running quietly, which is an added benefit.

Vacuum Tube

Lastly, a pneumatic vacuum tube elevator, or PVE, is one of the most advanced choices. Unlike other elevator types that use cables or pulleys, a pneumatic vacuum elevator doesn’t need a mechanical lifting system to operate. Rather, a pneumatic vacuum tube elevator lifts and lowers through the use of vacuum pressure inside the hoistway. It is very energy efficient because it uses gravity to naturally lower.
