Why a residential lift is a great investment for your home

There are many reasons why a residential lift is a great investment for your home.

Perhaps the most obvious reason is that it can make life much easier for those who have difficulty climbing stairs.

A residential lift can also add value to your home, making it more attractive to potential buyers, and it can be a great way to improve the accessibility of your home if you have mobility issues.

If you are considering installing a lift in your home, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

First, you will need to decide what type of lift you would like.

There are many different types of lifts on the market, so it is important to do some research to find the one that best suits your needs.

You will also need to consider the cost of installation and maintenance.

However, when you weigh all of these factors, it is easy to see why a residential lift can be a great investment for your home.

Factors to consider in choosing a residential lift

Which type of lift is best for your needs?

 

3-types of residential lifts

residential lift drive options

Pneumatic lifts, for example, use air pressure to raise and lower a platform. These lifts are typically installed in homes with limited space, as they do not require a shaft or machine room.

Hydraulic lifts, on the other hand, use hydraulic fluid to power the lifting mechanism. These lifts are more common in commercial settings, but they can also be used in private homes.

Gearless lifts: The gearless drive system is an environmentally friendly solution (as it uses no fossil hydraulic oils). It also has reduced energy consumption due to the use of a counterweight mechanism. This counterweight mechanism balances out the weight of the car plus half of the load that the car can carry. It, therefore, uses up to 90% less energy than any other system.

When choosing a lift for your home, you will also need to decide which features are most important to you.

Below are a few of the options available when installing a residential lift.

  • Built-in safety features, such as an emergency stop button
  • Manual or automatic doors.
  • Weather-resistant materials
  • wheelchair accessibility.
  • Custom colour to match the interior
  • Ceiling options

And, of course, you will need to consider the cost of installation and maintenance.

Once you have considered all of these factors, you should be able to choose the right residential lift for your needs.

What features are important to you?

There are a few key features to look for when choosing a residential lift.

Firstly, safety is always the most important consideration. Look for lifts that have automatic doors and safety features such as broken cable detection.

Secondly, consider the aesthetic features of the lift. Some people prefer lifts with more neutral colours and finishes, while others like to add a touch of luxury with coloured panels or brass finishing.

Thirdly, think about how energy efficient the lift is.
Many newer models now come with green energy options such as solar power or wind turbines, which can help offset your energy use.

Lastly, compare prices and consider what type of warranty is included.

How much space do you have available?

Depending on the model of lift you choose, you will need anywhere from a small area near an exterior wall to a larger room with an internal shaft.

You also need to consider if you want a topped or through-the-lift design.

If you don’t have a lot of space, consider opting for a smaller model that can be installed without an internal shaft (most commonly found in apartments).

-Cost of installation and maintenance

-Type of lift that would best suit your needs (hydraulic, electric, etc.)

-The size of your home

-How many people do you need to transport
