Cost of Residential Elevators

Nowadays, it is a trend to have a home or residential elevator installed. It is not an extravagant expenditure. It adds to your mobility by making every floor of your home easily accessible to you. Home elevators are very useful for the individuals with disabilities who have restricted mobility. In addition to using them to transport you between floors, you can use them to carry bulky things such as grocery, laundry and things that are difficult to carry between the floors using the stairs.

Types of Elevators

Elevators are differentiated on the basis of how they operate.

Hydraulic elevators: From the point of safe operations, these are reputed to be reliable. Machine room for this type of elevator is built into the basement, and offers easy access to rescuers during emergencies such as, fire, power outage and earthquake. The elevator cage, if it is needed, can be lowered manually, though at a slow-speed.

Electric or Traction elevators: A counterweight, machine drive and the elevator cab are the main components of this system. The machine room is usually located at the top of the building and the machine drive is incorporated in or located next to the hoist way. These elevators are not rated as high as hydraulic ones, safety-wise, as the cab is vulnerable in a shaking building which can happen during an earthquake.

Overhead winding drum elevators: They do not employ machine rooms and counterweights and hence, are most suitable for installation in pre-existing structures without too much of modifications. Winding drum drive system with adjustable drum settings is the main feature of this elevator.

Vacuum or Pneumatic lift elevators: To facilitate the cab movements, these systems relies on the power of suction. To go in upward direction, the system creates vacuum at the top end of the cab and vice versa.

Installation cost of an elevator in an existing home will essentially be more than the one that is under construction. In the latter case, the architect can change or amend the plans of the home to accommodate the installation. In the former case, a contractor will have to visit your home to determine the extent and the cost of the construction required in installing it. As you can guess, this is costlier than installing an elevator in a house under construction.

Costs of Elevators

Selecting a home elevator is like choosing a vehicle for family use. Its price is influenced by its size, carrying capacity, safety features, speed, number of floors it will serve and the additional accessories you want installed in it. The installation and operation also influences the overall cost. Luxury residential elevators can make your home stylish and add value to your house if you plan to move in future. If you compare the different types of home elevators that are available in the market, you will find the installation costs to be in the range of $7,800-$40,000. On the other hand, a custom-made elevator may cost you more than $100,000. In addition, there is cost of obtaining building permit which can range from $200 to $1,000 depending on the laws of the state you reside in. If you are opting to go for an elevator for your home because of a medical necessity then know that the law grants you some tax benefits for such a purchase.

Elevators on Tracks

In case of these elevators, tracks are fixed to a load bearing wall. And the elevator cab uses them to travel between the floors. The floors of the house are designed or reconstructed to allow for a rectangular shaft to extend from the bottom to the top floor which the elevator cab uses for its movement. Whenever the cab is resting on a floor, a hatch covers the opening in the floor above. Because of tracks, constructing an enclosed shaft for the cab is unnecessary. It reduces the cost of installation and space too, is saved. These elevators can carry up to 500 lbs (227 kg) of weight to a height of 16 feet and offer 2-3 stops. These elevators cost in the range of $7,000-$10,000.

Shaft Elevators

These elevators can carry up to 750 lbs (340 kg) of weight, to a height of 23 feet, with 2-3 stops. A shaft is constructed in which the elevator operates. The price is in the range of $13,000-$18,000. The shaft increases the cost of installation and consumes valuable space. Heavy-duty variants of this elevators type can carry up to 1,400 lbs (635 kg) of weight to a height of 50 feet at 30 feet per minute, with 4-6 stops.

Vacuum Elevators

This type of elevator needs no shaft, pit or engine room. They can be installed in the house, without making any structural changes at all to the floors. They incorporate vacuum technology and can carry 440 lbs (200 kg) to the height of 30-35 feet, with 2-3 stops. These elevators can move at a speed of 25-30 feet per minute. Their unique feature is that they can be dismantled and erected at any another place easily. Vacuum home elevators cost more than the other types.

Stair Lifts

Climbing stairs can be a difficult task for senior citizens. Stair lifts, a kind of elevator, can help them to travel between the floors. A stair lift runs on a track, which is installed on the walls along the staircase. It has a comfortable seat. Its speed can be controlled using manual or a remote control. A stair lift can operate using AC or DC, as well as using a battery backup. Stair lifts are available in the range of $1,200-$2,500. If they are customized, then the total cost of installation rises.

It is estimated that a home elevator occupies only 25% of space in comparison to the stairs in a house. Modern versions are provided with an emergency telephone, battery back-up, automatic controls, handrails, emergency lighting and emergency stop buttons. Application of advanced technology to enhance its safety features and ensure its trouble-free use, has resulted in a product that even a child can safely use. It is a time-tested and trusted device to have in your place.

World Bank's Environmental Injustice in South Africa

This post was co-authored by Dominique Doyle, Energy Policy Officer at Earthlife Africa Jhb.

Two weeks ago on the side-lines of the U.S-Africa Business Forum in Washington, D.C., World Bank President Kim used the metaphor of an "almost energy apartheid" to validate the move to fund more coal-fired energy infrastructure in Africa. The metaphor was mistaken; both figuratively and literally. There are few better examples than in South Africa, the home of apartheid, to show how large scale World Bank investments in dirty energy actually work towards entrenching lines of poverty and class; rather than relieving them.

On April 8, 2010, the World Bank approved a loan of $ 3.75 billion to South Africa for constructing the Medupi mega coal-fired power station. The power station will be the fourth largest in the world. According to the Bank, the development objective of Medupi was "to enable Eskom South Africa to enhance its power supply and energy security in an efficient and sustainable manner so as to support both economic growth objectives and South Africa's long term carbon mitigation strategy." Looking back, with the Medupi name now tarnished by substantial delays, corruption and cost overruns; this reasoning is almost as bizarre as Kim's energy apartheid metaphor.

Eskom is South Africa's sole energy utility, and is responsible for Medupi construction. Through its work at the Medupi site, Eskom has succeeded in cementing environmental injustice in several ways, while its management knew all along what was going on. In South Africa, it is the poor who bear the brunt of poor air quality caused by coal-fired power stations. These power stations are situated around where poor mining communities live and around communities who live in poorly constructed houses that provide little protection against poor ambient air quality. These communities further do not have access to adequate health care.

In addition, the poor are also hit hardest by the effects of climate change. As one of the largest coal plants in the world, this establishment will further exacerbate the climate problem.

Eskom is building the Medupi power station in the water-scarce region of Lephalale in Limpopo Province of South Africa. At the end of 2011, a leaked World Bank Inspection Panel (IP) report revealed that it was worried about the lack of consideration for water scarcity in the Waterberg region. The rivers that nourish the area, which is rich in biodiversity and natural beauty, are seasonal and inconsistent. The current mining, power generation, municipal and agricultural activities in the area are all supported by one dam, the Mokolo Dam, which will be unable to also provide for Medupi's activities. Already located in the area is another massive Eskom owned and operated coal-fired power station: Matimba.

The increase in mining and power generation activities, which has led to increased demand for water, means that there is less water available for communities in the area. Poorer communities who make use of communal taps for their household needs are the worst affected by the diminishing water supply and often complain that their taps run dry or run dirty water while the coal industry reserves the cleanest supply. Besides this, sand rivers used for agriculture needs were hit badly as well when Eskom contractors' dug the sand for the power station construction needs, leaving communities that depend on the river with less water because it started to disappear as sand was taken away.

And as if the cost overruns and environmental issues were not enough, another social problem adds to the pile of issues that have turned this project into local communities' biggest nightmare. Medupi has been possibly built on the graves of fourteen families. The families say that they were never properly consulted about the project, in a language which they were comfortable with, when construction started seven years ago. Eskom is now under pressure to start a revised social consultation process because the Independent Review Mechanism of the African Development Bank, co-funding the project, found that "no real effort has been made to identify such unmarked graves and the risk of desecration remains substantial." Maintaining access to graves and communicating with ancestors is a critical element to many African belief systems.

In April 2015, the South African Minimum Emission Standards will come into effect. The Minimum Emission Standards (MES) are part of South African Air Quality Legislation, which is already weak, and set maximum levels of air pollutants that can be emitted by various industrial processes. A major selling point of the World Bank loan for the Medupi power station was that Medupi would install Flue Gas Desulphurization (FGD), a technology that would support the power plant in reducing its sulphur dioxide emissions, which is a dangerous pollutant that the MES is attempting to control. Eskom has, however, applied to the National Department of Environmental Affairs to postpone Medupi's commitments to the MES and to postpone installing FGD on the grounds that the technology is too expensive and water intensive to install. The World Bank now has little to say on Eskom's failure to comply, as the poor hit hard are to witness more environmental destruction and higher costs.

Environmental injustice is a universally repeated phenomenon and occurs when the most marginalized in society pay the highest costs for environmental degradation, yet receive the least benefits. Environmental injustice is comparable with the human rights abuses of apartheid because it allows the development of certain groups over others. The poor will continue to carry the burden of the poor air quality caused by coal combustion while they are already suffering from an unequal distribution of access to safe water, discriminatory segregation of people from their heritage, and rising financial costs. With such an example at its hands, and proven by its own Inspection Department, there is no way the World Bank's President can prove that coal will help Africans overcome poverty and achieve shared prosperity. Coal is the source of the problem and should be treated as such.

This allows you to view two channels at once in two different locations within your Home yet paying for one account. We offers you a number of Extra View packages to choose from: Check out our fantastic packages below.

How does Extra View work?

Basically, two decoders* are linked to work under a single subscription. Each decoder is independently connected to the satellite dish and each decoder has a smartcard. In the Extra View installation, one decoder is designated as the "primary" decoder and the other one is designated as the "secondary". The decoders are linked by a cable that allows communication between them and the primary decoder sends a "heartbeat" to the secondary decoder via this cable. If the cable is removed or the "heartbeat" lost, the secondary decoder will lose video & audio until the cable is replaced or the "heartbeat" resumed. There is no impact to the primary decoder if the cable is disconnected.
