Adding a residential elevator has increased in popularity in recent years, so why not find out all you can about the subject before installing one? Home elevators come in four basic types: hydraulic lift, winding drum, counter weight, and pneumatic. Each of these has a different operational mechanism. Hydraulic lifts operate by a pump and cylinder from below, while winding drum and traction drive systems operate from above through pulleys, gears, and counterweights. A pneumatic lift, on the other hand, operates through air regulation by a valve on top of the hoist way. Nearly any home can have a residential elevator added. With the right planning, a hoist way of appropriate size can be added to the interior of a home or exterior of a home.
