Residential Dumbwaiter Technical Information for Purchase Comparison
The Econo-Lift® residential dumbwaiter incorporates the most advanced controller on the market. This residential dumbwaiter controller can be mounted at the top or bottom of the shaft, or remotely located. The controller runs a very dependable 230 Volt 3 phase commercial grade electric motor / gearbox that incorporates a disc brake with a manual brake release (the heart of the system). The dumbwaiter controller converts the 115 volt power supply into 230 volt 3 phase for the elevator grade motor (from Germany not China).
The VFD drive (variable frequency drive) device gives full motor control and protection and includes soft start and soft stop. This type of motor / gearbox and controller are only found on high quality commercial grade units designed for 100’s of trips a day. Compare these controls, motors and mode of transportation to the competition, and you will see there is no competition! It is all about long term reliability and ease of maintenance.

Because of space limitations, our new porch design required a spiral staircase up to the second floor crow’s nest. Carrying food and drinks up these stairs would be an ongoing problem. A dumbwaiter was the logical answer but which one? I surveyed available electric and manual dumbwaiters looking at cost, installation flexibility, durability, appearance, customization and safety. Elevation Innovation was the hands-down winner. The installation went smoothly with timely and complete support from the Elevation staff. My family and I are thrilled with our choice and highly recommend Elevation Innovation.
When we remodeled our home a few years ago, we added a deck and wet bar on the second floor but retained our galley style kitchen on the first floor. An obvious improvement was to use a dumb waiter to send the snacks and beverages to the second floor and use it to return the glasses and dishes to the kitchen. We also added a natural gas BBQ on the deck and the dumb waiter has been great for sending food back and forth. We also use it to send laundry to and from the machines on the first floor to our...read more→
We love our dumbwaiter from Elevation Innovation. It makes having a reversed floorplan so easy. We simply pull the car into the garage and unload the groceries and the food is directly into the kitchen. It is easier than having a single level home.
This is a long overdue thank you for your dumbwaiter we used in our residential project in Boston last year. The home owners simply love it, and use it even more than they expected. The experience with E-I and Terry from Nationwide was wonderful. The GC and I had been having a difficult time with a couple other companies stuck in their old ways and not willing to work with our tight site conditions. In fact, it was their unwillingness to help that lead me to you. They didn’t want to spend time to answer my question and made me...read more→
