If you’ve decided to install a Home Lift in your home and have moved on to the shopping process, odds are you feel a bit overwhelmed with all of the options. There are plenty of home lift manufacturers out there vying for your attention, some relying on traditional lift technology and others utilizing cutting-edge pneumatic tube innovations. Parsing all of these information can be difficult for someone new to the world of elevators, but it is in the details that you will discover whether a particular lift solution is right for you. With that in mind, this article put together a short list of features to look for when shopping for a new home lift.
Construction Time: Installing a home lift can require substantial remodeling work. However, some elevators are low impact in design and require only a few days of install time, while completing the work necessary for a traditional elevator can take weeks. You know, long construction times raise the cost of the elevator and increase the impact on your home life.
Energy Efficiency: How will a new home lift affect your energy bill? Our pneumatic elevators are designed to be energy efficient, using power only to raise the lift and relying on air pressure to lower it. Traditional elevator designs that operate using oil products and heavy weights will use quite a bit of power, you’ll certainly notice a difference the next time the power company sends you a bill.
Safety Mechanisms: Elevators are safer now than they have ever been, but asking about a lift’s safety features is still a good idea. FUJI’s home lifts are all protected by physics (air under the lift allows for a slow, safe descent in the event of a power outage) as well as traditional lift safety mechanisms (emergency brake).
Lift Capability: How many passengers can the Fujihd Elevator accommodate? How many floors can it reach? These are critical questions that need to be answered before installation begins. In general, home lifts are available in several models designed for different numbers of people or even wheelchairs, which require a wider entry port.
