Aiming at the safety operation problem of the machineroomless elevator installed in existing residential buildings due to the overheating of the elevator shaft in summer, the author tested and analyzed the elevator operation of an existing residence in Chongqing, and used DeST software to simulate the temperature in the shaft. The purpose of this paper is to find out the temperature change in the shaft of the machineroomless elevator installed in the existing residential buildings under the high temperature environment in summer and obtain the minimum ventilation rate to ensure the hot environment in the shaft according to the thermal performance of different types of well enclosure structure, so as to provide the basis for the shaft ventilation design of the elevator project installed in the existing residential buildings. The conclusion of this study can provide reference for the design of elevator renovation project of existing residential buildings in similar climate areas.
