Elevator Noise Level Introduction

Selecting a home elevator involves a myriad of considerations such as safety features, design, and ease of installation. However, one factor that is often overshadowed is the noise level produced by the elevator. In this blog post, we aim to shed light on the importance of considering noise levels and offer a detailed comparative analysis between Stiltz Homelifts and Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators to help you make an educated purchase.

Why Noise Level Is a Crucial Factor

Comfort in Everyday Living

A quieter elevator contributes to a peaceful household environment, minimizing disturbances during conversations or while resting.

Suitability for Remote Work

The rise of remote work has made home tranquility more crucial than ever. A noisy elevator can disrupt concentration and impede productivity during crucial meetings and work sessions.

Balancing Aesthetic and Acoustic Qualities

Beyond visible aesthetics like color and material, an elevator's noise level affects your home's overall ambiance. A quieter lift enhances rather than disrupts your living space.

Stiltz Homelift Noise Levels

Mobility123 is committed to your comfort, which is why we have detailed our noise level testing regimen for our range of Stiltz Homelifts. Here's what you need to know:

  • Inside the Car: The noise levels are low, ranging from 55 to 61 dBA.
  • Outside the Car: When traveling up or down, the noise levels are between 46 to 58 dBA.

Context: For perspective, typical household noise levels are as follows: a domestic refrigerator emits about 50 dBA, while a normal conversation takes place around 60 dBA.

Comparative Analysis: Stiltz Homelifts vs. Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators

Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators may be popular, but they operate at noticeably higher noise levels, averaging around 85 dBA. To provide a practical context, this is akin to the noise level of busy city traffic or a running food blender.

Key Takeaways for Comparison:

  1. Quieter Operation: Stiltz Homelifts operate at a significantly quieter range, closer to everyday household sounds like conversation.
  2. Home Environment Impact: Your home's soft furnishings could potentially absorb some noise, making Stiltz Elevators even more discreet.
  3. Ultimate Comfort and Convenience: The quieter operation of Stiltz Homelifts offers a more serene and less intrusive home experience.


The noise level of your home elevator plays a vital role in your daily comfort and should be a major factor in your buying decision. Our Stiltz Homelifts meet not only the safety and design expectations but also excel in delivering a more tranquil ride. Armed with this information, you are better positioned to choose an elevator or homelift that genuinely enhances your quality of life.
