For 15 years, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators have been producing one of the only environmentally friendly elevators on the market.
But what makes these innovative elevators so special? How can a home elevator also be eco-friendly? And does this feature affect me and my home in the long run?
For starters, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators is an innovative, technology based company that specializes in using air to transport people and goods vertically within their home. Founded in 2002 in Miami, FL, PVE has devoted their efforts and resources to advancing the ability of pneumatic technology and creating home lift systems that are powered by the most abundant resource in the world… AIR!
Unlike traditional elevators that require harmful oils and lubricants to operate, Vacuum Elevators use a vacuum pump to generate areas of higher and lower atmospheric pressure within the cylinder hoist way to vertically transport people and goods. Requiring a 220 volt power supply, the Vacuum Elevator has the same electrical requirements as a standard issue washer and dryer found in most homes today. This feature makes the Vacuum Elevator one of the only Plug & Play elevators in the world.
Not to mention, hardly any electricity is used for descent, with gravity being used to gently lower the passenger to their respective level. This energy saving feature means that electricity is used for roughly 50% of the operation, with no oils or lubricants required and no yearly maintenance.
The self-supporting Vacuum Elevator requires no shaft, pit or machine room to operate, thus needing few pre-construction requirements prior to installation. Available for installation for through-floor or balcony mounted projects, the Vacuum Elevator rests on the ground floor and can travel up to 5 stops or 50 feet of total rise.
Even if you plan on moving in the future, you don’t have to leave your elevator behind. PVE manufactures completely enclosed elevators that are not built into the framework of your home. This means the self-contained home lift can be moved to your new home if you decide to relocate in the future.
As an investment for your home and the environment, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators are the best solution for your residence.
