Do you have an elevator in your home? If so, you know how valuable it is for getting people up and down to the different floors of the house easily. If there is anyone at home who depends on your elevator, then you can’t afford to have it break down. Likewise, it’s important to detect potential elevator problems early on so that you can address them and stop bigger issues from arising. Today, we’ll be going over some elevator problems you can experience, and ways that you can keep them from occurring.
Sheaves are Worn
If the sheaves on your elevator ever get worn down, the ropes will begin to get worn down as well. This will create a vicious loop in which one problem causes the other and vice-versa. An elevator repair company can determine this issue and help with this repair process so that your elevator lasts you much longer.
Any home elevator is going to require a large amount of power to operate. This means that changes to the voltage of the system can impact your motor’s ability to operate. Sometimes, your elevator system can even become damaged in the process. If your elevator has a history filled with operation concerns, it will be in your best interest to have a power quality survey done.
