3 Types of Residential Elevator for Your Montgomery County Home

From Rockville to Bethesda and the Potomac, there are several Montgomery County homes that could benefit from an elevator. Available in areas such as Germantown, Silver Spring, and Gaithersburg to name a few, your residential elevator can give you back freedom and mobility. But you may be wondering which type of elevator would be the best fit for your home.

Roped Hydraulic

This is a combination of the best features of a roped and hydraulic elevator system. A roped hydraulic elevator uses a set of steel cables with a hydraulic pump and pulley system for added stability to give you a smoother ride. Another benefit of the roped hydraulic elevator is that, in many cases, it does not require the space of an additional machine closet because the supporting machinery can be placed anywhere.

Vacuum Tube

A pneumatic vacuum tube elevator, or PVE, is the newest and most advanced option. It does not need cables, pulleys, or any other lifting system to operate. Instead, a pneumatic vacuum tube elevator uses vacuum pressure inside the hoistway itself to operate. This tube-shaped elevator is made of low-maintenance and durable polycarbonate and aluminum and is more cost-effective because it only needs to use energy to travel upwards.

Electric motor

Lastly, electric motor elevators, such as the Stiltz Lift Elevator, are even more cost-effective and perhaps the easiest to install. Because of their electric motor, these elevators simply have to be plugged in to operate. This means that the electric motor elevators do not need a separate machine room. With the added benefit of a quiet design, you can enjoy this elevator without disturbing anyone in your home.
