Frequently Asked Questions

1) Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts do not attach to the wall, there are not any adjustments which are needed. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The single thing that we do advocate is that if you are planning to change the flooring or carpet on your own stairs in the following five years, you may want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to avert future removal and re installation prices.

2) How much do they weigh?

The units are not light, which is among the reasons we don't recommend trying to install them yourself. The lightest units available on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (seat and path). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Tracks and seat collections come in different sizes and shapes and are made of several types of materials depending on its greatest characteristics and the model.

3) How do stair lifts work?

Essentially, it is like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. You sit in a motorized swivel chair snugly equipped to make you as comfortable as possible with personalized features. A safety belt keeps you securely in place as well as a foot rest prevents you from hitting the steps while using the lift. Some stairlifts call/send controls on the wall near the tracks for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the seat in which you would like it to go. Sometimes the control panel can be found on the seat arm. Become knowledgeable about the specific features of your unit. Once you are prepared, depending on the version you bought or rented, as you travel up and down your staircase, you can control the speed and adjust the seat. The lift consists of a a passenger car a motor, the control system, and your comfortable seat so that you could once more regain your mobility. Some versions rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and other models use a rack and pinion system.

4) How are they powered?

You can conserve energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) models. One concern is whether you live in a location that experiences a great deal of power outages, because you do not want to be stranded mid-lift during a storm. (Yet, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system that should be included in your version.) Also, consider the price of replacing the life of the battery and also the battery. Generally, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electrical versions for reasons that range from battery life to some apparatus difficulties specific to battery models, others favor battery powered stairlifts, because they are able to result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to use the stairlift has been considered negligible by the majority of producers. Because the battery model still has a wall plug to maintain the battery charged, you don't need to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to think about is how inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to add the brand new battery and as housing and the seat on some versions must be removed. Request directions and see if it is something you will want to replace yourself. We'd be very happy to help you out. Make certain there is a plug within several feet of the lift in case you choose an electrical model. No particular outlets are essential.

5) Why are they so expensive to install?

Above all, they include routine maintenance and help you every step of the way. Open up any of the installation guides and you'll see a warning that strict adherence to the installation instructions is needed and any deviation will void any small guarantee and remove any chance you have of holding the manufacturer liable for accountability or any damage.

Electric power (AC) stairlifts necessitate a grounded regular 110v/20 amp wall socket located at or close to the bottom or top of the staircase. Direct current, or battery powered (DC) stairlifts use batteries capable of being recharged. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it is not used to recharge the battery. There are additionally DC powered units that empower the batteries to always charge while the DC power is used by the stairlift from the batteries. The charger unit will convert the voltage to DC. When there is a power outage, the battery operated stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of electricity. In case the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift is not going to run and you need to get the charger serviced.
