Frequently Asked Questions About Stair Lifts

Can you build one of these yourselves?

It certainly depends upon your practical know how. It's an extremely daunting process.

Some designs are offered online, nevertheless, without the right tools, materials and welding knowledge, this strategy might take plenty of problems plus quite a while to build. Additionally, when you compare layout plans that are common for a stairlift to purchasing a tried and true tested model, a homemade variant and commercial models can not compete as much as compactness and appearance. It is a rugged strategy to use. Also, remember safety is a real concern for anybody who's going to rely on the raise, so it is crucial that you do thorough testing and frequent checking of your handiwork.

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

Electric power (AC) stairlifts demand a grounded normal 110v/20 amp outlet found at or close to the bottom or top of the stairs. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it's not being used to recharge the battery. There are additionally DC powered units that empower the batteries to constantly charge while the stairlift uses the DC power from the batteries. The charger unit will convert the voltage to DC. If there is a power outage, the battery used stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of power. In case the transformer burns out, the DC stairlift is not going to run and you also must have the charger.

How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of the seat assembly and track of a stairlift can vary so it's good to do some assignments. Some companies claim that the toughest in the industry is the model that offers the heaviest weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty models require bigger batteries and more sturdy trails. Most lifts are made to fit passengers who weigh 250 pounds or less. Heavy-duty versions cost more so make sure you get the model that fits the person who will use the stairlift. Always check whether the manufacturer has an established reputation for sturdy, safe and well-made products.

Is there any way to sell the equipment when we are done with it?

Yes. There are suppliers and producers that offer buy-back programs. Many of them are going to remove the unwanted lift also. Many buyers hate to purchase straight from a seller, because they need to have it checked out by a professional to ascertain how well it works and whether it'll work on their stairway. Certain models sell not more difficult than many others.

Often people wonder if it is connected to the wall, but the stairlift is right fitted via the floor covering of the stairs. In case the stairwell is removed, your staircase is free of damage.

Does health insurance cover equipment cost and installation of a lift?

Because they are dwelling adjustments, not durable medical equipment, Medicare will not cover setup costs and stairlift equipment. Durable medical equipment comprises elevators that are used to help a patient in out of a seat or bed. In California, persons with limited financial resources may be qualified for the California Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It enables individuals who need nursing home level care to receive that care at home and supports independent living, including coverage for home modifications. Family may be compensated for providing caregiving support. As stated by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance providers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications in the event the elevator is recognized as a medical necessity. It is best to review insurance policies that are different. Some private health or long-term care insurance can help pay for limited house modifications. Check with your Oakland insurance carrier to review coverage choices.

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

No. One of the reasons that the stairlifts are attached to the stairs is to shield your Oakland dwelling from damage related to installation. The few screws attached to the stairlifts can be handled by the treads of the stairs. The holes are not difficult to cover. The entire worth of your house will not depreciate. Realtors used to advocate that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house on the market, however given increased life expectancy if you plan on selling your home, this is not any longer the case. You may even completely remove the stairlift with no signs of installment when you no longer want or need it or move.

Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Lifts can be installed on all forms of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). The truth is, most professionally installed stairlifts cost between $500 and $1,000 for the labor given a variety of variables based on the difficulty of the occupation. Installers can screw right through the carpeting. All you will see is the tops of the screws through the supporting brackets underneath the rail. Because the aluminum processors are very difficult to remove from the carpets, the paths do not cut inside the house. One thing that pros mention is that if your carpeting will probably need replacing in the next FIVE years, before you have 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.

Why are they so expensive to install?

Most importantly, they contain regular care and help you every step of the way. Professional installation is significantly more economical in the long-run with regards to warranty, service and long-term care because they may be trained to follow security measures and experienced at installation. The installer is getting paid to properly install your unit in order you don't face serious dangers that do result when an inexperienced individual opens the manual for the first time and installs a stairlift. A Oakland professional also knows how to make sure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, how to ensure the charger connections are working properly to avoid serious injuries, and ensure that all the proper operating attributes are enabled. The price you pay to really have a trained and trusted technician ensures your security as well as the longevity of your purchase. Also, setup includes lifting a reasonable quantity of weight. Many setups can be completed in a couple of hours by a professional.

What types of financing are available if insurance doesn't cover home modifications?

The Fall Prevention Centre of Excellence lists government grants which are offered for home modifications. 2. Contact the National Council on Independent Living Center (703) 525-3406 on getting capital and referral services in your town. 3. You may also contact the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) which is part of the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to make an application for a loan to pay for your stairlift through a mortgage insurance program.

How much would a cheap one cost?

You can likely find a stairlift that is affordable for about $1,000, but we also recommend you be cautious of scams. Many people soon learned that there were defects in the unit and have bought a unit that was very affordable once they got them home or they did not work properly. Quality is essential because you might wind up spending a lot more to keep an economical purchase. As a way to find a reasonable option, consider purchasing used models or renting one. Scroll through this page to see our guidance on searching for affordable units and finance choices.

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

Yes. Stairlifts that are reconditioned and recycled are an alternative and are available. Custom designed curved stairlifts are less easy to resell, since the angles around the curves really should be an extremely close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift is fundamentally good only because it's used and offers lots of edges. Many California stairlift firms buy back stairlifts and resell them used. A used stairlift resold and may have been removed, as the man who depended on the lift improved within their condition, they went, or the demand for it was temporary. They cost significantly less than new models. Be sure you ask some questions when purchasing a lift that is used. Ask about their weight and the prior owner /height demands. We advise that you really do not purchase one that is 10 years old, because that model is close to retirement. Ask mechanical questions regarding the condition of the battery, the working condition of the tracks the raise, and its own motor. You can shorten the span of tracks if needed, as stated before. However, be sure to stick to quite a measured approach for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.
