Why Now Is the Time to Install a Residential Elevator

Why NOW is the time to install a residential elevator

So, you’ve purchased your new home. You’ve got the keys and are ready to move in. You’re young, hopeful and full of plans. This is the house you’ve been waiting for, and you have dreams of ensuring this is the house you’ll stay in forever.

Before you start thinking of all the different ways of decorating your home, think about that last statement. Forever. It’s a long time, and while you may be young now, time will ensure that there is much that will need changing in your home.  This is when you need to really start thinking about the future, and this is the ideal time to take a look at home elevators and what they will do for you. 

Residential elevators are becoming more and more popular with people who purchase their first home, and it’s not only those who are near to retirement taking advantages of installing an elevator. Young families and even single people are looking to take advantage of the benefits installing an elevator can bring. 

Young families, and large families come with an awful lot of washing, clothing and heavy items, and it’s a well known fact that many young fathers, or even mothers suffer damage to muscles and joints from doing daily tasks, such as carrying heavy items upstairs.  Moms, if you’re constantly carrying load upon load of washing upstairs, it’s likely that you’ll begin to feel the strain, and as your family grows older, there are issues such as pregnancy, suffering with a bad back, arthritis and other joint problems that can be exacerbated by climbing stairs. 

Another consideration is that while you may not be expecting to deal with these issues any time soon, having an elevator in Florida installed would be a godsend if your parents come to visit, or if you had other elderly relatives to stay. If you’re someone who loves to entertain, and invite people to your home, you should always consider their comfort, and your guests would look upon your home with gratitude if they weren’t expected to climb mountains of stairs within the course of their visit. Similarly, they look great and add a touch of luxury to your home that will impress any guests you have over. 

Of course, there’s one reason we haven’t mentioned. It’s a big one too. Installing a residential elevator can increase the value of your home. According to studies by Florida State University, installing a home elevator can add up to 10% on to the value of your home.

So while you might be tempted to leave the planning of an elevator until you’re older, why not look into having one installed straight away. It’s cheaper than you’d think, and your family, and wallet will thank you!
