Frequently Asked Questions About Stair Lifts

How much do they weigh?

The units are hefty, which is among the reasons we do not recommend attempting to install them yourself. The lightest units available on the market weigh 165-180 pounds installed (chair and track). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Trails and seat assemblages come in different sizes and shapes and are made of various kinds of stuff depending on its best attributes and the model.

How fast do stairlifts go?

Usually the speed ranges from 13.78 feet per minute to 29.53 feet per minute with the speed changing with the rider's weight, all within the recommended industry standard. The most rate in the US is 40 feet per minute. Units can come with an emergency brake safety feature in the event you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers manages the standards for stairway chair lifts for issues of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some makers offer a varying speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts don't attach to the wall, there are not any adjustments which are crucial. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The single thing that we do advocate is that if you are intending to modify the flooring or carpeting on your own stairs in the next five years, you might want to plan to do it before you install your stairlift to avoid future removal and re-installation prices.

How are you supposed to run power to a stair lift?

Electric-power (AC) stairlifts require a grounded normal 110v/20 amp wall socket found at or close to the bottom or top of the stairs. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it is not used to recharge the battery. There are also DC powered units that enable the batteries to be continuously charged by the AC electricity while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. If there is a power outage, the battery operated stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of electricity. If the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift is not going to run and you also need to have the charger serviced.

Can these lifts be used on wood flooring?

Lifts can be set up on all types of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). When the stairlift is removed, holes will probably be evident without carpeting. However, the holes are small and can be filled. Stairlifts can also be installed on wooden outside steps. Actually, most professionally installed stairlifts in College Station price between $500 and $1,000 for the labour given a variety of factors based on the difficulty of the occupation. Tile, metal staircases, or concrete are less easy than wooden stairs.

Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Elevators can be installed on all types of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). Installers can screw right through the carpeting. The paths do not cut inside the house, because the aluminum processors are very hard to remove from the carpeting. One thing that specialists say is that if your carpeting is likely to need replacing in the next FIVE years, before you've got a stairlift installed you may want to replace it. Otherwise, you'll have to factor in the cost of uninstalling and re-installing the stairlift.

Is there any permanent damage when installing one of these lifts?

No. One of the rationales that the stairlifts are attached to the staircase is to shield your College Station dwelling from damage related to installment. The few screws attached to the stairlifts can be handled by the treads of the stairs. The holes are easy to cover. The overall value of your property won't depreciate. Should you plan on selling your home, realtors used to recommend that a stairlift be removed prior to putting your house available on the market, nonetheless given increased life expectancy, this isn't any longer the case.

Are there any good options for used or recycled lifts in my area?

Yes. Recycled and reconditioned stairlifts are an option and are available. Custom designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, as the angles around the curves truly should be a very close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift is not fundamentally bad merely because it is used and offers lots of advantages. Many Texas stairlift companies resell them used and buy back stairlifts. A stairlift that was used may have been removed and resold, because the man who depended on the lift improved within their state, they went, or the need for it was temporary. They cost significantly less than new models. Be sure you ask some questions, when purchasing a secondhand lift. Ask about their weight and the prior owner /height demands. We advise that you do not buy one that is 10 years old, because that model is close to retirement. Ask questions that are mechanical regarding the status of the battery, the working shape of the tracks the raise, and its motor. You can shorten the length of tracks if necessary as stated before.

Can you apply for one of these lifts if you are on disability?

Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they've worked in a job that was covered by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets their definition of handicap. Benefits may be covered if you are on impairment or injured. Since SSI is a needs-based program and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, qualifications for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person who has a disability to attain an occupational goal. The cash that's set aside under a PASS can be used for anything that leads to an occupational goal and can be used to cover house adjustments via an SSI savings strategy. You can learn more about PASS through your Texas Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800-772-1213.
