ENERGY EFFICIENT HOME ELEVATORS
At PVE, we’re proud to build cutting-edge lift technology designed to be safe, comfortable, and energy efficient. And while we’ve talked previously about how a vacuum elevator can save you money, it’s also important to us that our installation processes and core design philosophies reflect a greater care for the environment as well. Vacuum elevators are truly a green lift solution.
Here’s a glance at how our elevators are a bit more eco-friendly than traditional vertical mobility technology:
Our elevators require no energy to descend and use very little to ascend. Vacuum elevator technology makes for the most energy efficient lifting mechanics of any home elevator application. This is good for your electric bill, of course, but also good for the environment as a whole. It is our goal to build the most energy-efficient lifts in the world.
The installation of a vacuum elevator creates very little waste because of the small footprint of the lift. Most construction can be completed within three days and we are able to install elevators without using large amounts of environment-damaging materials or creating piles of trash. We aim to have as little impact as possible on your home and our environment.
Vacuum elevators require no oils or lubricants, because there are no cables or pistons. No harmful products are needed to keep your vacuum elevator in top working condition. Additionally, the only part that requires replacing on your vacuum elevator (the main seal) lasts for up to 15,000 rides (4-5 years). This means minimal waste related to maintenance processes.
My house was built in 1925 and it was hard to get something to fit in with the décor of my home, but the PVE fit in perfectly. I am thrilled with the design, engineering, and reliability of the vacuum elevator.
I thoroughly enjoy riding in my PVE elevator as its extremely comfortable… I would unhesitatingly, recommend it to people who are confined to a wheelchair like myself, to me it's that good and reliable!
Our work with Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators allowed us to create solutions for our clients with luxury coastline homes, working with limited space. The product installs well in small spaces utilizing closets, pantries and laundry rooms. Their engineering department assisted in crafting non-traditional installations, making for extremely satisfied homeowners. Clients appreciate the product for its modern, sleek footprint and superb functionality.

We moved into our dream 2 story home with bedrooms on the second floor. At 60, I thought I could manage the strairs, but soon discovered the challenges were too difficult for me. The 37” diameter PVE elevator was to be my savior. Now I go up and down as I please and stairs no longer prevent me from enjoying my new home. It has been an absolute Blessing! It also looks so gorgeous that three different guests who were admiring our modern statuesque “object d’art” were stunned to discover that it is actually a working elevator! I had to demonstrate it to prove it! Two of them remarked that they wouldn’t even care if it worked (which it does). They just thought it was ultra-attractive and interesting.
