Home Elevator Costs: Traditional Elevators Vs Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator

If you’re in the market for a home elevator, you are already doing the right thing for your future mobility. After recently suffering an accident or aging in your senior years, stairs can be quite a hazard. With the relative ease and inexpensiveness of a home elevator, they are an unnecessary risk indeed!

You read that correctly, the right home elevator will actually be inexpensive. This is because the invention and release of the Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator (PVE) has made a home elevator well within the price range of all homeowners! How can this be? First, there doesn’t need to be major renovation done on your home. A PVE can be put anywhere and doesn’t need a pit to be dug or a machine room for it to work. Also, it uses vacuum technology. This has several advantages over older elevator models, including that it uses an extremely small amount of electricity, ranging from none during descent to 4.7 kilowatts during ascension on standard models. All of our air driven home elevators are operated by 220 Volts and range from 25-35 Amps.

Since a PVE has very few moving parts and does not require any lubrication, you only need to call for a replacement seal every four to five years, or 15,000 rides. This not only means a smaller footprint in your home but a much less costly and less messy construction project in comparison to a traditional residential elevator. A PVE costs less to install and less to maintain over the years!

Forget everything you thought you knew about home elevators. These environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art residential lifts help you, your family members, and even pets move between floors with ease. You can enjoy the luxury and convenience of a home elevator without all the expense of traditional elevators. Reach out online or give us a call to get you in touch with your local authorized PVE dealer.


The revolutionary technology of the vacuum elevator has changed the way people and goods are being transported vertically within their homes, and furthermore, has done so in an environmentally friendly manner.

Rather than using cables or pistons, the unique residential elevator is powered by one of the most abundant resources in the world.. AIR!
