Every high-rise property owner will understand the costs that are involved in elevator ownership. After all, it can be relatively expensive to have multiple lifts running at the same time even when they are in tip top condition. As a result, eco-friendly and energy-efficient designs have started to increase in popularity as property owners search for more efficient alternatives. Read on as the team here at Elevators Ltd go over 3 characteristics of energy efficient elevators…
The average elevator system tends to waste a lot of energy on lights, ventilation and indicators when a cab is not in use which is why a sleep/standby mode is an effective characteristic of energy efficient designs. After all, it allows the energy to be stored for use at a later date and these controls will simply be reactivated when the cab is required for a journey.
Some elevators, particularly those that are found within high-rise buildings, are fitted with Destination Dispatch Software which allows a cab to pick up passengers in the most energy efficient order. After all, the fewer stops that a cab makes, the less the energy that the entire elevator system will use. Whilst this may cause passengers to wait mere seconds longer for a cab to arrive after pressing the button to signal one, it ensures that the cabs do not travel from the bottom to the top of a building whilst stopping on every single floor for no reason.
Whilst the double-deck elevator system is not as popular as other energy-efficient elevator characteristics, it is often implemented inside skyscrapers in order to, again, reduce the number of floors that a cab stops at. For example, one cab will serve even floors whilst another serves odd floors, reducing the overall energy usage inside a building. Plus, this elevator design is also said to be more eco-friendly.
Here at Elevators Ltd, we know how important affordability is to our clients which is why we always keep their budget in mind when recommending a specific operating system. After all, the upfront cost of a lift is not the only obstacle that property owners may face! Luckily, energy efficient elevators are increasing in popularity as people continue to search for more eco-friendly ways to travel between the different floors of a building.
