Do You Need Elevator Modernization?

The typical service life for an elevator is around 20 years. Over those years their performance capabilities start to decline. When your commercial elevator stops performing like it used to, it’s most likely time to consider elevator modernization.

To find out whether you should modernize your commercial elevators or not depends on tenant satisfaction. If a lot of complaints about the elevator are being received, the manager should consider modernizing their elevators to make them more reliable and efficient. One should also take into consideration the amount of elevator service calls made over the past year to see if they have increased vs. the previous year.

Elevator Modernization Benefits

Take a look at the benefits of modernizing your commercial elevator system.

  1. Modernization Increases Efficiency 
  2. Modernizing Reduced Energy Costs
  3. Reduces Electromagnetic Noise 
  4. Modernization Compatibility & Upgrade Benefits

1. Modernizing Increases Efficiency

Elevator modernization won’t necessarily increase elevator speed, rather, it increases the elevator’s efficiency. Modernized elevators can group passengers according to where they are going with destination dispatch technology. This reduce wait times for passengers and eliminate wasted trips. Also, the microprocessors have the capability of learning traffic patterns in your building and adjust according to the patterns. Furthermore, modernized elevators can be equipped with improved acceleration systems to make the rates faster or slower, and faster opening and closing of elevator doors.

2. Modernizing Reduces Energy Costs

Modernizing your commercial elevator will make it more energy efficient which will reduce your energy costs. They can also feed energy back to the building as the descend, rather than just releasing heat. This will also reduce the energy needed for machine room cooling.

3. Reduces Electromagnetic Noise

Wireless networks and computers are sensitive to electromagnetic noise. Modernizing your elevator systems can help reduce electromagnetic noise. Although, the drives of Solid-state elevators vary in the amount of noise they produce.

4. Modernization Compatibility & Upgrade Benefits

Electrical performance can be affected by modernization. A new solid-state drive may not be compatible with an older generator because new drives don’t tolerate power quality variations well.

Facility managers may decide to upgrade the closed loop door operator system now and simply replace it will a new system later. Closed loop operators are able to monitor the position of the door for increased performance. The system will also be able to tell if the motor has a drag due to a pressure problem or something stuck on the track so the company can make an adjustment. Also, take a look at our other post “Elevator Modernization Factors” to consider.

Small Elevator Upgrades VS. Full Modernization

If you elevator is still in good condition, it might be possible to only make some small upgrades or improvements versus undergoing a complete modernization, which could end up saving your thousands of dollars. Also, an elevator evaluation will let the facility manager know if they need to upgrade any of their other systems to comply with newer building codes. Regular elevator inspections will help prevent future breakdowns.
