The rise of home elevators in the Philippines is closely related to the development of the construction industry. With the increase of private houses, and significantly the increase of two or three-story places, many households have the urge to install home elevators. Home elevators can reach up to 15. The meter’s height, the standard car can accommodate 3-4 people and has a rich safety configuration and modern design style. The cost of a home elevator in the Philippines depends on several factors. The home elevator is a product suitable for families or low-rise buildings. It can be customized and produce elevators with different stops, ranging from two floors to five floors. The price of standard hydraulic home elevators is about $6,000 to $10,000. , Depending on the decoration and function, the price of the screw home elevator is between 25,000 US dollars and 30,000 US dollars. In addition to the first time, the installation cost of the home elevator and the cost of the shaft design in the Philippines should also be considered.
Many people install home elevators for the safety of the elderly or to plan their retirement in advance. Mobility is currently the top priority for the elderly or those with mobility impairments. Walking and moving, whether you are preparing to clean or wash Clothing, mobility is a basic ability.
Inability to move is common among the elderly. If you stay at home for a long time and keep still, the elderly are prone to depression. Many doctors will recommend auxiliary measures to help mobility, such as wheelchairs, canes, etc. The emergence of elevators can help the elderly. The problem of going up and downstairs, allowing them to gain better mobility.
The price difference is very obvious according to different grades, configurations, and performances of home elevators, imported and domestic.
Economical home elevator:
The economical equipment is about 7000-10000 US dollars, and the economical elevator mainly adopts the hydraulic structure.
The standard price is about 15,000-18,000 US dollars for a comfortable home elevator such as the FUJI elevator. The fuji elevator is a traction-type elevator. The elevator is relatively common and requires regular maintenance.
Mid-to-high-end home elevators such as the Stiltz elevator: The standard price is around $20,000 to $30,000. Stiltz mainly uses screw deconstruction, which has a high safety factor, but the cost is high, and many families cannot afford it.
The above is the standard cost of a home elevator in the Philippines. If there are special customization requirements for the car and door, the price will need to increase by several thousand dollars.
Different car finishing costs of home lifts:
Car: The primary home elevator is made of hairline stainless steel. If mirror stainless steel is used, the cost of the car generally needs to increase by about 300-400 US dollars.
Stainless steel car with wood-grain etching or titanium etching needs an additional
For elevators using glass car materials, each glass side needs to add about 500 US dollars
Different types of door costs of home lifts
For elevator landing doors, different types of landing doors have different prices. Elevator landing doors are divided into manual doors, automatic single doors, automatic double doors, and automatic sliding doors.
The cost of each home elevator door in the Philippines with a manual door opening is about 500-600 US dollars. This kind of door is what we usually call the swing door. Its opening and closing are completed manually
The automatic single door is a side door opened by a motor drive. It can be opened without external force, convenient for the elderly and children. Its price is about 800-1000 US dollars.
The automatic double door is a swing door that can be opened by both sashes. It is mainly convenient for the elderly or wheelchair users because it has a relatively large opening space, is convenient for wheelchairs to enter and exit, and can automatically identify obstacles. Its price is about 1500- Around $2000
The automatic sliding door is also a kind of door used in standard passenger elevators. It takes up less space. Its door operator system can move up and down with the elevator car. Its introductory price is about 2,000 US dollars. The additional fee is about $500
The home elevator price is determined by the cost of good construction, elevator equipment, installation, and maintenance.
Elevator shaft fee
If your house is not built, you can install the elevator without modification. Different types of elevators require other elevator shafts. The hydraulic structure and screw structure home elevators only need 1500*1500 elevator shafts. The elevator designed by the elevator shaft can withstand 3-4 people. The home elevator with a traction structure often has strict requirements on the shaft. The space of the shaft is generally more than 1600*1600. At the same time, it is necessary to set up a machine room and a certain depth of the pit. Home elevators with hydraulic or screw structures do not require a huge installation space. For old houses, it is necessary to install the elevator by opening holes or removing stairs. The cost of shaft construction is about 2000-4000 US dollars.
The cost of elevator installation
The cost of a home elevator installation in the Philippines, because our company mainly produces elevators with hydraulic structure, so here I especially take hydraulic structure elevators as an example. The hydraulic elevator installation takes about 2-3 workers and takes 2-3 days to complete. If each worker costs $20 per hour, if they work 8 hours a day, each worker needs to pay $160 per day. , If it is two workers, it is 320 US dollars, and the total is about 640 US dollars. Different elevator installation companies in the Philippines will have other quotations. You can contact a few more companies to compare.
Elevator maintenance costs:
Regular Home Elevator Maintenance Costs
Regular maintenance of home elevators can reduce the loss of significant repairs. Every six months or a year, the care cost of a home elevator in the Philippines is about 200-400 US dollars. For hydraulic elevators, you mainly check whether the travel limit is running normally and whether there is hydraulic oil leakage. At the same time, check whether the elevator’s wiring is exposed or damaged.
The price of home elevator equipment is jointly determined according to the type of elevator, the number of stops, and the lifting height.
The hydraulic structure elevator is relatively cheap in the Philippine market. The elevator price is about 8,000-10,000 US dollars, followed by the ordinary traction structure elevator, which is about 1.5-2 times that of the hydraulic structure elevator. The screw structure is used. The price of home elevators is generally more than 30,000 US dollars.
A number of elevator stops:
The price difference caused by the number of stops does not increase in multiples. The price of an elevator with four stops is not twice as much as that with two visits. Each additional floor of the elevator needs to consume only the cost of materials. Neither the motor nor the pumping station has changed, so the added price per floor is around $1000-2000.
How much does a basic lift cost?
What is the basic home lift?
The basic home elevator is also called a standard home elevator. It is not only a mobile lifting platform, but more importantly, it provides a basic guarantee of safety for passengers. If an elevator is just a platform, we can call it a lift instead of a home elevator. , This has nothing to do with the structure of the home elevator. What matters is whether its function can meet people’s needs. Now the aging population in the Philippines is relatively serious. Many people consider installing a home elevator after retirement, but they are limited by budget. , Choosing an affordable home elevator is not a luxury desire for many philippine because many people have begun to import customized home elevators from China.
Basic home lift cost in the philippine:
The basic home elevator can be installed in the stairwell or any corner of the room. The more functions it has, the higher the height and the higher the price. For example, adding the outbound call function of the elevator or using an automatic alarm device is more expensive than ordinary manual buttons.
Similarly, the higher the elevator floor, or the more beautiful the decoration, the higher the price. For example, the elevator with a glass car is often much higher than the elevator with a stainless steel car. The elevator in a four-story building needs more than the elevator in a two-story building. Many materials.
Previously, few elevator suppliers in the Philippines offered customization. They often provided several options for you to choose from, but now, elevators are more customized with competitors, which means higher costs.
Buying an elevator is only the first step in the elevator project. The installation problem is a question that plagues many home elevator users because most elevators are expensive to install and require professional personnel to participate, such as traction elevators and screw elevators. However, the elevator with a hydraulic structure is not so complicated. Therefore, many people prefer the home elevator with a hydraulic system when purchasing home elevators. The installation cost of the hydraulic structure elevator is about 500-1000 US dollars, and it usually takes 2-3 workers to complete within two days.
How much electricity does it use?
The working principles of hydraulic elevators and electric traction elevators are different. Generally, the load of household elevators is 400kg. A 3kw pump station is usually used for two-story elevators, and a three-story or four-story elevator typically uses a 3.75kw pump station. For traction elevators, the required motor is generally about 2kw-3kw. It is worth noting that the hydraulic elevator does not need to consume electricity during the descending process; on the contrary, the traction elevator needs to consume electricity whether it is ascending or descending.
Take the four-story hydraulic elevator as an example:
Domestic lifts are generally having three-phase motors below 5 h.p. or 3.75 kW. Apart from lights and some electronics, lifts consume power only while moving.
At a speed of 0.7 MPs (the general speed of all domestic lifts ), the lift will cross one floor every 5 seconds. So if you are using the lift for the 4th floor it will take 15 secs.
Now for the electrical calculations. one unit costing 7–10 Rs. is 1 kwh. So if a 3.75 kW motor runs for 1 hour it will consume 3.75 units of electricity. To run 1 hour the lift can make 240 trips one way for 4 floors or it can go up and down 120 times.
Based on the study of Bucher Hydraulics:
Through research on power consumption and energy-saving and comparing the power consumption of hydraulic elevators and traction elevators, hydraulic elevators can save 800 euros per year compared to apartment passenger elevators
This study is the foundation of the below-mentioned calculation of energy costs for an elevator in an apartment building in which 40000 trips are taken per annum, i.e. approx 100 trips daily.
Can I replace the stairs with a lift?
The functions of home elevators and stairs are different. Stairs are not limited by weight and size and can easily carry heavy objects such as furniture and refrigerators, while home elevators mainly facilitate people to move and eliminate fatigue. Home elevators often have specific installation sizes and loads. For example, a conventional home elevator can accommodate up to 4-5 people and a load of about 400kg. Unless your elevator shaft is large enough, the elevator cannot accommodate many significant objects, so we can only say that the elevator is a supplement to the stairs. , If you have another way to solve the movement of large or heavy objects, then the home elevator can replace the stairs.
When installing a home elevator, we must first consider the installation size. If your home does not have enough installation space, installing an elevator next to the stairs is an excellent choice. It can solve the problem of insufficient installation space, even if you want to use an elevator. Replacing your stairs is also a good investment. The changes in home buyers’ demand for houses are consistent with Maslow’s theory. With the gradual improvement of the economic level and the income of home buyers, home buyers only require the most basic needs for a house to live in and will gradually change to higher needs such as safety and quality. The emergence of home elevators has increased the value of real estate. If a house with three or four floors does not have an elevator, it will become a depreciation point for the home.
If an elevator is installed in a family villa or private residence, it can bring a lot of convenience to living life. For the elderly or children, climbing stairs will increase the possibility of their injury, especially when they need to carry objects or wash clothes. many risks.
When you choose a home elevator, you should first make a plan according to your own budget. For the new owner of the villa, you can let the builder communicate with the elevator company in advance, saving costs. For the old owner, you need to determine the installation location of your elevator, and then measure the size and ask the elevator company to quote. If you do not know the size, you can contact LIFCORE‘s distributor in the Philippines; we will measure and install it at your door; you could contact us at any time!
