If you or a family member has trouble using the stairs in your home, an elevator could be the solution you need. With so many options available, the choices may seem overwhelming. A cable-driven elevator offers some advantages compared to other types of lifts.
A cable-driven elevator is energy-efficient because it utilizes a counterweight. The cable that supports the elevator cab has a counterweight on the opposite end. This helps to balance the elevator when it is not in use, which takes pressure off the motor. This saves energy because the motor does not have to work to support the elevator.
Some homeowners want an elevator to be a focal point in a room, while others prefer to keep it out of sight. A pneumatic elevator attaches to a balcony or travels through a hole in the floor, and a hydraulic elevator is designed to stand alone and is usually installed in the center of a room or space. A cable-driven elevator, on the other hand, can easily be hidden and disguised to look like a closet or pantry.
A cable-driven elevator has a more traditional appearance than a pneumatic or hydraulic model. If you have a traditional style home and install a modern elevator, the two will not look right together. For a house with a traditional design, a cable-driven elevator would be a better choice.
An elevator can be the solution you need to improve mobility for yourself or someone else at home. If you are looking for an energy-efficient elevator with an inconspicuous and traditional design, a cable-driven model may be the right choice for you.
