Since an elevator is a readily available piece of technology, many passengers are unaware of the amount of energy that is required to lift and lower a single cab. After all, the machinery is designed in order to lift around 2,500 lbs! Here at Elevators Ltd, we have a wide range of high-quality lifts, including an eco-friendly design. Read on as we go over three reasons why every property should consider an investment in an environmentally-friendly elevator…

Why are eco-friendly lifts fitted with a stand-by mode?

A lot of energy is wasted when an elevator is not in use which is why a stand-by mode is a highly advanced feature that can reduce the amount of money that property owners spend running their lift. It works by temporarily shutting down a variety of features inside an elevator when it is not in use, such as the lighting, ventilation and indicator.

What is a regenerative overlay system in elevators?

When an elevator is provided with power, a lot of energy is lost as a by-product and cannot be regained. In fact, it is effective wasted energy that the property owner has to pay for. A regenerative overlay system works by repurposing this energy back into the power grid on certain travel cycles so that it can be used in other areas of the building. After all, running an elevator doesn’t have to break the bank

Can variable controls help reduce elevator energy consumption?

Known as VVVF control, the motors in an eco-friendly elevator are often fitted with drive controllers that allow the speed, voltage and speed of a cab to varied. As a result, the lifts are able to alter these controls in order to ensure that the most appropriate settings are used and reduce the amount of energy that it utilised with each journey.

Here at Elevators Ltd, we believe that everybody as a responsibility to control and reduce their consumption of energy. Luckily, property owners considering an elevator installation have the opportunity to do so with an investment in an eco-friendly lift. From stand-by mode to demand control, there are a variety of benefits to gain from these elevator alternatives.
