Vacuum Elevators

The Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator also known as “PVE” offers a full transparent panoramic View without any cables or pistons obstructing your view. The PVE has a self-supporting structure that rests on the floor. Installing a PVE is easier than a Traditional Elevator because no excavation is needed, hostway construction or machine room.


Eco Friendly Elevator
The PVE is the greenest elevator  in the industry and at Home Elevator of Houston you will have at your disposal three sizes  ranging from a single passenger 30”,  two passenger 37” with optional fold-down seat, and a 52” Elevator with three  passenger   capacity  and wheelchair accessibility.

Why choose a Vacuum Elevator?

  • Compact Design: It can be placed virtually anywhere within a climate controlled area utilizing a 360 degree panoramic view.
  • Safe: Vacuum Elevators can’t free-fall. During power outage the vacuum elevator will either sit where it is, or if by chance you’re in it will descend to the bottom floor automatically.
  • Energy Efficient: Zero energy consumption during descent.
  • Price and Value: No need for excavation costs and adds resale value to your existing home.

In early 2013 I purchase a PVE 37 elevator from Jay Knapp at Home Elevator of Houston. Prior to our purchase, Jay took my wife and I to visit one of his happy customers who let us check the functionality of their elevator (at that time HEOH had no show room). We were impressed, so I asked Jay to hav...
