Frequently Asked Questions

1) 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 near the bottom or top of the staircase. Plug in the DC powered stairlift when it is not being used to recharge the battery. There are also DC powered units that empower the batteries to be always charged by the AC electricity while the DC power is used by the stairlift from the batteries. The battery controlled stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of power when there's a power outage. The DC stairlift will not run, in case the transformer burns out and you also need to have the charger.

2) Can you rent a stair lift for an extended period of time?

As a result of individual circumstances you might be facing, you may need to lease a stairlift instead of purchase one. Perhaps you'll have company for a protracted period of time that will benefit from its use, perhaps you rent your home, or someone in your household has had an accident or surgery and desires it temporarily. Occasionally, depending on the medical condition, you simply can not be sure how long you'll want the stairlift and renting appears like the best alternative on a month-to-month basis. Some Pennsylvania companies even offer lease to own software. Nevertheless, it is important to take into account the cost of installation and de-installation before choosing this alternative instead of buying a used stairlift.

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

Yes. Reconditioned and recycled stairlifts are an alternative and are accessible. Custom designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, because the angles round the curves really need to be a very close match. A recycled stairlift isn't fundamentally bad only because it is used and offers a lot of edges. Many Pennsylvania stairlift firms resell them used and buy stairlifts back. A used stairlift resold and may have been removed, since the person who depended on the raise improved in their state, they moved, or the need for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new models. When buying a lift that is used, make sure you ask some questions. Inquire about the previous owner and their weight /height requirements. We advise that you really do not purchase one that is 10 years old, because that model is close to retirement. You can shorten the span of tracks if required, as mentioned before. However, make sure that you adhere to quite a measured approach for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.

4) Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Elevators can be set up on all kinds of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairway). Installers can screw right through the carpet. The trails do not cut inside the house, because the aluminum chips are very hard to remove from the carpets. One thing that pros mention is that if your carpeting will probably need replacing in the next 5 years, you may want to replace it before you've got a stairlift installed. Otherwise, you'll need to factor in the price of uninstalling and re installing the stairlift.

5) How much do they weigh?

The units are hefty, 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 course). Some units weight over 250 pounds installed. Trails and seat assemblies come in various sizes and shapes and are created of several types of substances depending on its finest attributes and the model.

6) Does the VA cover the cost and installation of lifts?

According to AARP, a few grants are offered by The Department of Veterans Affairs to qualified veterans with disabilities for security advancements in the house. Those include: the Home Improvements and Structural Alternations (HISA) Grant; The Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant; and also the Special House Variation (SHA) grant. Upon qualification, a veteran can receive either and both a HISA grant SHA or a SAH grant. Contact the VA and ask for VA form 10-0103 to make an application for the HISA grant. Contact the form 26-4555 to apply for a SAH or SHA grant. For information on all gains call 1 800 827 1000.

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

Depending on your own medical condition, there are a few programs that help make the home modification less expensive. 1. The Fall Prevention Center of Excellence lists government grants which are available for home alterations. Those include: (a) the Assistive Technology Funding and Systems Change Project United Cerebral Palsy Associations (UCPA) at 800-872-5827-UCPA ; (b) the Department of Veteran Affairs at (800) 827-1000 ; and (c) the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) (800) 829-1040. 2. Contact the National Council on Independent Living Center (703) 525-3406 on how to get funding and referral services in your area. 3. 4. It may reassure you to understand that if your insurance doesn't cover the price, several of the stairlift makers have partnered with banks to provide financing options, including loans and monthly payment alternatives. 5. There are other options to consider. The IRS may determine that your house modification qualifies for tax deductions. Phone the Internal Revenue Service to determine if you can deduct the cost of installing your stairlift. IRS Publication 502 is a great resource that can help you estimate whether changing your staircase qualifies you to deduct it as a medical expense. You may also phone them at (800) 829-1040. 6. If you qualify, some Area Agency of Aging use resources from the Older Americans Act Title III to change homes. Call the Eldercare Locator at (800) 677-1116 or visit 7. It's possible for you to call them toll free at 877 866 2476 or visit

8) How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of track and the seat assembly of a stairlift can fluctuate so it is great to do a little bit of assignments. In order to determine how sturdy a stairlift is, be sure it's strong enough for the most significant user by comparing maximum weight capacities. More than a few companies maintain the toughest in the business is the model that offers the heaviest weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty models need more sturdy courses and bigger batteries. Most elevators are made to accommodate passengers who weigh 250 pounds or less. Heavy duty versions cost more so be sure you get the model that fits the person who'll use the stairlift. Always assess whether the manufacturer has a proven reputation for strong, safe and well-made products.

9) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks may be adjusted and the span could be reduced. However, using the correct personal protective equipment is extraordinarily recommended. Some makers of stairlifts supply do it yourself cutting directions. Here's the catch. The track determines how well the stairlift will run. Making certain that you get the span of the stairway to correspond with the path length is highly critical. Without proper measurements, you might discover the setup leads to more problems rather than relying on professional installers with experience. You might have difficulty returning them depending on the yield policy if the courses cut incorrect. We highly recommend that you cut yourself to the path or do not install your own stairlift. It's not too safe. Some sellers WOn't sell you the stairlift if you plan on installing it yourself. An incorrect shortening of the wrong length of trail or the path can not prove awfully safe, particularly when the path is too short. It's essential that the seat as well as the tracks work exactly. Licensed installers worry and will save you from a lot of head aches and possible prevent horrible injuries.

10) How are they powered?

When you are not using the stairlift, you can save energy by turning it away with the remote also. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) models. One consideration is whether you reside in a location that experiences a lot of power outages, because you don't need to be stranded mid-lift during a thunderstorm. (Nevertheless, ask the maker about the backup power system that should be included in your model.) Additionally, consider the cost of replacing the battery and also the life of the battery. Normally, determined by the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries . While some favor electrical models for reasons which range from battery life to some apparatus difficulties unique to battery versions, others prefer battery powered stairlifts, because they can result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to use the stairlift has been considered negligible by most producers. You really do not need to plug in a battery charger after every use, since the battery version still has a wall plug to keep the battery charged. Another thing to think about is the way inclined the user is, because housing and the seat on some models have to be removed and wires have to be disconnected and reconnected to fit the new battery. Sometimes, this becomes a service call to an installer to create life easier. Request directions and see if it is something that you will want to replace yourself. We'd be happy to help you out. Make sure there is a spark plug within a couple of feet of the lift, if you decide on an electrical version. No specific outlets are necessary. Ask the way to change the back up fuse on an electric stairlift.

11) Does it increase or decrease the value of my home?

The complete value of your home won't depreciate. If you're planning on selling your Reading dwelling, realtors used to advocate that a stairlift be removed prior to putting your house on the Pennsylvania marketplace, yet given increased life expectancy, this is no longer the case. You move or may even completely remove the stairlift with no signs of installment when you want or desire it. Realtors can list that the stairlift is a high utility value for physically disabled people and that the dwelling is suitable for living that is reachable independent and if a purchaser desires it removed, then they offer that chance.

12) How much do electric stair lifts cost in Reading?

Used electric-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,299.00, while battery-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,399.00 in Pennsylvania. Both models are comparably priced when you get them new. The price difference is insignificant initially. In the long run, electrical-powered stairlifts may cost you if you factor in the purchase price of care and replacement batteries. Frequently, although there are batteries that are fairly simple to install determined by the version it is recommended to get the battery rather than attempt to replace it yourself.
