When it comes to residential elevators, you definitely have options. There are dozens of elevator manufacturers out there ready to sell a variety of elevator types, sizes, and designs. Vacuum elevators are a relatively new innovation, however, and you might not be aware of their many perks and advantages when searching through options.

Here’s a quick glance at why vacuum elevators are set to become the new standard in residential elevators:

Sleek and Small

Vacuum elevators can be as small as 30 inches in diameter and are designed with a slick, futuristic aesthetic. A vacuum elevator not only looks good in any home, it takes up minimal space and allows you to keep the visual appeal of the room in which you place it. Our vacuum elevators offer 360-degree panoramic views.

Energy Efficient

Vacuum elevators use only a fraction of the energy of traditional lifts. No energy is used on descent (air pressure handles this), and the turbines that power ascent are designed to be efficient and reliable. Shoppers often underestimate the added energy costs associated with a traditional heavy elevator.

Value and Price

Vacuum elevators require little construction work and do not need a separate machine room. They also need very little maintenance (once every 5 years or 15,000 lifts) and increase the resale value of your home. A vacuum elevator is a sharp investment compared to a traditional residential elevator, which can cost much more in the long run with fewer advantages.


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!

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.
