The 35th Annual Fall Home Show

The final convention of the year is upon us. The 35th Annual Fall Home Show, presented by Jenks Productions, runs October 24th to the 26th 2014, located at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford, CT. With a vendor list of over 350 companies, from Appliances to Windows and Doors, and everything in-between, anything you’re looking for is guaranteed to be there.

With the winter months coming, this is the perfect opportunity to look into energy saving options. On that same front, Elevator Service Company has options to be more energy efficient, while still improving your day to day mobility. Our exclusive Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator, is a “Green Technology” lift. It uses the same amount of energy that an average house hold dryer does to lift the cab, and NO ENERGY for the cab to descend.

Interested in improved safety in the home? During potential winter power outages, all our lifts have safety features that allow the lift to return to the ground floor. Beyond that, our Symmetry Elevators have options to continue running up and down, up to 7 times*.

Do you already have an elevator, lift, or stair chair? Come by and ask us about our preventative maintenance program. Is your lift worn out, or is the manufacturer no more? We have solutions to modernize your lift, or even replace the entire unit. From homes to businesses, we will be on hand, every day, to answer all your question on how we can improve your home mobility.

Come by booth #1703 to see our sales specialists and our wide range of products and services.
