A home elevator is a great investment for any homeowner. Whether you need an accessible home for someone with mobility restrictions or just want to add an element of luxury to your home, a residential elevator is the way to do it. Once you’ve decided that you want an elevator for your Potomac or Bethesda home, the next step is deciding what kind. Here are some of the common types of home elevators to help make your decision easier.
One of the more high-tech options, the pneumatic vacuum elevator can move from floor to floor with no cables or pullies required. This residential elevator doesn’t take long to install because a pit doesn’t have to be built for it. The tubes are made from polycarbonate and supported with aluminum, making it very sturdy as well as low maintenance since there are no rails or ropes to keep up with. It is also environmentally friendly because it uses energy on the way up but none on the way down, so it will save you some money on those energy bills while giving your home a modern, sleek aesthetic!
Another one of our most popular options, the Stiltz Lift home elevator is a great two-stop elevator. It’s great for any DC or Bethesda home, but especially those that may be limited on space because you can walk under and over it. You don’t have to be inside of this elevator for it to work because it is operated by a remote control. Signature Elevators offers both a duo and trio Stiltz Lift option. The trio can fit up to three people and is also the better option for wheelchairs because it’s more spacious. No supporting wall is required for this home elevator so it can be placed almost anywhere in the home!
These are standard residential elevators that can adapt to anyone’s home and personal needs. Offerings include roped hydraulic, drum drives and MRL (machine room less). The pump and controller required for its use can easily fit into a small closet or even a garage that is separate from the elevator, making it a really flexible option. In addition to this, these home elevators have a variety of elevator cab design options. This allows you to customize your residential elevator in any way that you’d like to fit your personal style and your home’s existing decor.
