Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

3 Reasons to Consider Home Elevator Installation

What are some benefits of home elevator installation?

Home elevator installation is a great way to facilitate your mobility. What are some benefits of home elevator installation? In this blog, we will examine the reasons why you should consider getting an elevator installed in your home. Residential elevators are the heart of Preferred Elevator’s services. And, as your local lift and elevator specialists, we can make it happen for you.

Home Elevator Installation Increases Property Value

The first reason you should consider home elevator installation is that it increases property value. A smart way to get more money out of your home is to add elevators, which in turn increase accessibility. Today’s homebuyers have an eye toward the future when their own mobility might become limited. Another way property value can increase is that your home’s resale value goes up. Baby Boomers are a large sector of the housing market and may be willing to pay more for such an addition.

It Also Increases Functionality

Aging in place is becoming an ever more popular option for homeowners. With home elevator installations, the functionality of the home increases. This is mainly due to how stairs and staircases become less of an obstacle. Moving heavy objects or carrying in groceries is not as burdensome if an elevator is in place to help carry the load. A multi-level home can greatly benefit, as it makes the house much easier to navigate through.

Improve Security and Safety

Security and safety are two elements of making any home more comfortable. The stairs can be difficult to climb, and even dangerous in case of accidents and injuries. Accidents and injuries are especially frequent with the elderly and with small children. Elevators can also be restricted in terms of access so that only authorized people can be allowed to use it. In other words, unwelcome visitors would not be able to use such elevators.

Residential elevators can be part of a wider security system for your home.  Whatever that security system may be, you can make life easier and safer for everyone in your family, no matter how old they are.
