Elevator Maintenance



Vision 450 Home ElevatorThe cost of an in-home elevator doesn't stop after installation. Just like owning a car or a computer, parts break, and repairs need to be made. This is why it is so important to understand the expected maintenance levels of your new home elevator. Having said that, let's take a look at the expected maintenance for your average residential elevator.


Have Your In-Home Elevator Inspected Annually



When it comes to maintenance, many states now require that homeowners have their in-home elevators inspected annually. Now, even if your state does not require this, it is still a good habit to have your elevator inspected on a yearly basis. Why? The standard residential elevator has a lot of moving parts; if you only inspect your elevator when there's an issue, you're elevator may not last as long as it should. Inspect regularly to keep your elevator running smoothly and to help avoid breakdowns.


Maintain Cables, Pulleys and Fluids in Drive Shaft Elevators



In traditional drive shaft elevators, parts can wear out rather quickly, and it is not uncommon for homeowners to annually replace cables, pulleys, and fluids to keep their elevators working smoothly. If you choose to avoid yearly maintenance and inspections, you could end up paying even more in repairs. If finances will not allow you to handle yearly maintenance, then maybe you should look into a home elevator that does not require as much maintenance.
