Can I Fit a Lift in My Home?

There is no denying the comfort and utility of having a home lift – but is it possible to install one in any home?

A Home Lift for Any Home

Most people who live in multifloored homes without lifts would gladly install one, as walking up and down stairs gets tiresome whether you are young or old, especially when you must carry things along with you. But if the house was planned and built without a lift in mind, is there any point to dream about adding one?

In most cases, absolutely! Here are a few reasons why.

Conventional vs Platform Lift

First of all, not all lifts are made equal. The conventional cabin lifts that can be seen in many residential buildings and skyscrapers require quite a lot of space to operate. They need a machine room above the lift and a deep pit underneath it, making then quite clunky installations in a home environment.

The more viable alternative is a platform lift, which requires just a small pit and no machine room. All Aritco home lifts are of the platform kind and operate with a patented screw and nut-mechanism that safely carries the lift up and down without a cable. In addition to requiring much less vertical space to install, platform lifts are also quieter than conventional lifts, providing another reason to choose them for your home.

Installation in Existing Homes

Another issue that homeowners are concerned with is installation. Will adding a lift require major adjustments that will take forever and damage the house? It is a valid concern, but here again platform lifts provide a benefit.

Due to the way they operate, platform lifts are relatively easy to install and do not require much more modifications to the home than creating a passage through the floors for a shaft. They also do not need more space than the elevator’s own size and can be installed directly on the floor.

The installation time varies depending on the number of floors, but most Aritco home lifts are installed in a maximum of four days, often faster. Due to its speed, the installation of an Aritco platform lift is approximately 70% cheaper than that of a traditional elevator.

Size Matters

Perhaps the most important question that homeowners have is how much space a residential elevator will take up in a room. Say that you want a lift that goes from your basement through the first floor living room all the way up to the bedroom on the second floor. Will you have to give up much or most space in each of those rooms to fit a lift?

Not with a model such as the Aritco HomeLift. This carefully designed and optimized home lift only requires about as much space as a wardrobe in each room. The sleek shaft, doors and many customizable features have all been crafted to not only fit any space, but also fit in to any space as well.
