With the latest information, you will be ready to choose. Here’s what you need to know about a private home elevator.

Private home elevator: advantages between functionality and future value

A homelift for private house is ideal to move on multiple levels, but also for small apartment blocks, offices, shops, and any type of building equipped with stairs. It is a valuable ally in private homes as it facilitates the daily mobility of all users: the elderly, disabled people, those recovering from injuries or with medical conditions primarily, but also parents with children and strollers, people who simply often carry shopping bags and bottles of water. In fact, a homelift is dedicated to anyone who wants to move around their own home more comfortably.

A homelift for private house has many advantages as well as several features that differentiate it from a traditional elevator. First of all, the homelift has a limited speed, which can reach a maximum of 0.15 m/s: ideal in private homes, where speed is not a priority. Furthermore, the limited speed does not require extra space, and therefore the homelift operates without a big headroom or pit. Consequently, the possibility of installing it directly on the floor does not require invasive masonry work.

A homelift uses standard 220V single-phase household power supply and has low energy consumption. Furthermore, versatility is a quality that makes the homelift ideal for residential use: it can be installed in very small spaces and is also perfect for outdoor use. Finally, installing a lift platform is in some way an investment that creates lasting value.

Homelift for private house: installation rules

Before delving into the various rules, it is important to understand an important difference. An elevator is considered as a system capable of serving a building up to ten floors and beyond. Therefore, the construction and maintenance costs are significantly higher than for a homelift for a private home. In the latter case, we are talking about a system capable of ensuring maximum efficiency in buildings from two to four floors.

Now let’s move on to some very interesting information. From a regulatory point of view, there is a substantial difference between an indoor and an outdoor homelift. In the first case, the installation is part of free construction works.

If the homelift is outdoor, the work will not be part of free construction works. Therefore, in this case, one or more requests must be submitted based on the conditions of the property and the presence of any constraints.
