Top 3 Benefits of Elevator Modernization
Elevators generally provide about 20-25 years of service. With constant use and evolving technology, however, an equipment upgrade may be necessary. Modernization may restore functionality, improve efficiency, and increase safety benefits. At Action Elevator, we understand the importance of modernization.
Increased Safety and Performance
Before we modernize your elevator, we will thoroughly assess the safety and performance of your elevator. Factors that affect your elevator’s performance include:
- Floor leveling accuracy
- Wait times
- Acceleration and deceleration
- Door open and close times
We will also check any unusual sounds or vibrations. If there are weaknesses in your elevator’s performance, then we can determine what would improve it. In most cases, full modernization is always an effective way to boost your elevator’s safety and performance.
Better Tenant and Client Retention
In multi-family properties or commercial office spaces, your elevator’s condition affects how others view your building. People want to live and work in a functional, convenient building. You may see a steadier income and retention rate if you modernize the elevator.
Improved Accessibility and Reliability
The point of having an elevator in your building is to provide convenient transport between the floors. A part of guest and staff satisfaction is how convenient and reliable your elevator is. In addition, your elevator makes your building accessible. If you deal with multiple complaints or service calls regarding your elevator, then it may be time to modernize. While small updates help, a full modernization ensures that your elevator is a more reliable machine.
If you’ve received complaints or calls about your elevator multiple times over the last year, then it’s probably time to upgrade the machinery and components. When you have your elevator modernized, it will become a lot more reliable and efficient. At Action Elevator, we service commercial elevators in the Baltimore-Washington metropolitan area and the Delmarva Peninsula. Call 410-774-4573 or email us today for an assessment of your elevator.
