We are often asked lots of questions about vacuum elevators because this proven technology still feels quite new to most homeowners though they have been around for a long time. We understand asking these questions is a way to allay concerns of safety, quality, or because PVEs seem unfamiliar. After all, most people’s experience with pneumatic air-driven transportation is the drive-up bank teller or pharmacy. This probably adds to the uncertainty as mostly just engineers really understand the power of air. But consider that planes weighing tons get airborne…air pressure really is powerful!
Here we answer specific questions people have about vacuum elevators. This along with an in-home elevator consultation and site survey will help you confidently determine if a PVE is right for you or your home.
