Do you want to install an elevator or a lift in your home? Look no further if your mind is racing with questions. This article aims to serve as a ready reckoner by answering some of the most frequently asked questions about elevators and their installation at home. A comprehensive guide to home elevators.
Where will the elevator be placed?
The answer to this question depends on whether or not the house has already been built. If the house is still being built, an elevator shaft can be designed accordingly. If the elevator is to be placed discreetly, it can be placed close to an external wall. It can also be built in a garage or storage area to conserve the carpet area of the house.
How Much Room Does the Lift Shaft Require?
Lift manufacturers in Ahmedabad have years of experience building a wide range of lifts and elevators. A minimum of 4 ft x 5 ft is required, in our opinion, to build a reasonably small, yet functional elevator. Professional Elevators’ elevator experts will determine the right dimension and configuration of elevator required for you based on your needs and requirements.
When Should You Replace Your Elevator?
A good elevator should last at least 20 years. This is dependent on how the elevator is used and maintained. Semi-annual maintenance should unquestionably be performed on a regular basis. Professional Elevators’ experts can thoroughly inspect your elevator and replace worn or damaged parts. This significantly reduces the need for overhaul and extends the lift’s life.
Many people in their 50s and 60s want to age and live in the same place they currently live. Mobility and accessibility of the living space can be achieved for the next 20 years and beyond by installing and maintaining an elevator.
How Much Does an Elevator Cost? Is it worthwhile to make the investment?
An elevator can cost up to 8.5 lakhs. While this may appear to be a large sum at first glance, assuming the elevator is in operation for at least 20 years, the annual cost is only $42,500! This is a very reasonable price to pay for the building’s mobility and accessibility.
Furthermore, if you intend to rent out a portion of the house or building, having an elevator will undoubtedly make it more appealing to potential tenants and may even increase the property’s rental value.
What are the Factors That Influence Elevator Cost?
