If you live in Montgomery County and have been considering having a residential elevator installed, then it is a wise investment. At Signature Elevators, we serve homes in areas from Rockville to Bethesda, the Potomac, and more. But there are a few different types of elevators to choose from. Today we will look at the features of a pneumatic vacuum elevator, and why it could be a great choice for your Montgomery County home.
Unlike a traditional elevator, our pneumatic vacuum elevators operate through air pressure, without the aid of a pulley system. Inside, turbines change the air pressure in the vacuum tube. Reducing air pressure above the elevator makes it go up, and a control valve regulates the internal air flow so that the elevator lowers safely.
The pneumatic vacuum elevator operates with virtually no need for a power source. For this reason, when you use your elevator, you will save energy and reduce your house’s carbon footprint. Also, you won’t ever have to worry about your pneumatic vacuum elevator working in a power outage. And its built-in locking mechanism prevents the elevator from getting stuck between floors.
Another benefit of the pneumatic vacuum elevator is much easier to maintain compared to other residential elevators. There are no rails, pulleys to grease and no ropes to inspect, and you won’t have to keep track of fluid levels. Simply having a regular cleaning of the turbines and filters is enough to keep you pneumatic vacuum elevator running smoothly for years.
