Frequently Asked Questions

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

Yes. Stairlifts that are recycled and reconditioned are an option and are available. Custom-designed curved stairlifts are harder to resell, as the angles round the curves truly have to be an extremely close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift isn't fundamentally bad only because it's used and offers plenty of advantages. Many Louisiana stairlift firms buy stairlifts back and resell them used. A used stairlift may have been removed and resold, because the man who depended on the raise enhanced in their own condition, they moved, or the need for it was temporary. They cost significantly less than new versions. Make sure you ask some questions when purchasing a secondhand lift. Ask about the prior owner and their weight /height requirements. Ask about the age of the used model. We advise that you do not purchase because that model is close to retirement, one which is 10 years old. Ask mechanical questions about the state of the battery, the working shape of its motor, the tracks, and the raise. You can shorten the length of tracks if necessary, as mentioned before.

2) How fast do stairlifts go?

Usually the speed ranges from 13.78 feet per minute to 29.53 feet per minute with the speed varying with the rider's weight, all within the recommended industry standard. The maximum rate in the US is 40 feet per minute. Units can include an emergency brake safety feature in case you feel out of control descending. The American Society of Mechanical Engineers oversees the standards for stairs chair lifts for matters of public safety, including speed under ASME A18.1.. Some makers provide a changeable speed of 0 to 38 feet per minute.

3) How are these lifts fitted?

Making your purchase can entail an excellent deal of time work and decision-making once you consider which attributes matter most to you and all the multiple types of stairlifts that are accessible to you personally that will best fit your needs. Once you've determined, fitting the raise involves making sure that the best attention is given to the system fitting properly in order that you don't have to worry about its security or reliability. Your best option is to have it fit by certified Lafayette professionals. These licensed professionals measure pitch angle and the step heights to achieve correctness. The professional will go to the website--indoor or outside--and determine how your stairs can be fit by the stairlift. The track will be secured by them to the stairs with supports fixed to the stairs. Frequently people wonder if it is connected to the wall, but the stairlift is directly fitted via the floor covering of the stairs. The railing fastener points are accessible over the top of any carpeting you may have on the steps.

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

Electric power (AC) stairlifts necessitate a grounded standard 110v/20 amp outlet found at or close to the bottom or top of the stairs. Plug in the DC powered stairlift to recharge the battery when it's not being used. There are additionally 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, if there is a power outage. The DC stairlift will not run in case the transformer burns out and you also must get the charger serviced.

5) Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Lifts can be installed on all kinds of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairs). In fact, most professionally installed stairlifts cost between $500 and $1,000 for the work given a variety of variables based on the problem of the job. Installers can screw right through the carpeting. All you will see is the tops of the screws through the supporting brackets underneath the railing. The trails do not cut inside the house, because the aluminum processors are really difficult to remove from the carpets. One thing that specialists say is that if your carpeting is likely to need replacing in the next 5 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 reinstalling the stairlift.

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

Upon qualification, a veteran can receive either and both a HISA grant a SAH or SHA grant. Contact the VA and ask for VA form 10-0103 to apply for the HISA grant. Contact the form 26-4555 to make an application for SHA or SAH grant. For advice on all gains telephone 1-800-827-1000.

Yes. Although straight stairlifts are often not as expensive, curved stairlifts can be custom built to fit any stairs. Modern rail layouts can help the stairlift travel around corners snugly, comfortably, and smoothly to fit your lifestyle, leaving lots of room for individuals to walk the stairs up and down easily.

8) Can you build one of these yourselves?

It really depends upon your practical know-how. It is an extremely daunting process. Some people decide to make a home made stairlift, because their stairs are excessively narrow to use the ones available on the market or they are attempting to work on a tight budget. It's possible for you to find used stairlifts and save yourself from the hassle that is inherent and possible dangers of building one yourself. Some layouts are available online, however, with no proper tools, materials and welding knowledge, this approach may take a long time to build along with a lot of concerns. Also, when you compare common layout plans for a stairlift to purchasing a tried and true tested model, a home made variant can not compete with commercial models as far as compactness and look. Itis a hardy method to go. Also, remember safety is a real problem for anybody who's going to rely on the lift, so it is critical for you to do thorough testing and regular checking of your handiwork.

9) How much would a cheap one cost?

You could probably locate a cheap stairlift for about $1,000, but we also recommend that you be careful of scams. Some people have purchased a very affordable unit and soon learned that there were flaws in the unit once they got them or they didn't work properly. Quality is important as you may wind up spending more to maintain an economical purchase. As a way to locate a reasonable alternative, consider leasing one or buying used versions. Scroll by means of this page to see our guidance on searching for units that are affordable and financing alternatives. Remember also that some companies buy back your stairlift if it turns out you no longer desire it and you don't want to keep throwing money down the drain on a unit that isn't made with quality in mind.

Used electric-powered stairlifts can start at about $1,299.00, while battery powered stairlifts can start at about $1,399.00 in Louisiana. Both versions are priced when you buy them new. The price difference is negligible initially. In the long term, electric-powered stairlifts may cost you less, if you factor in the amount of care and replacement batteries. Frequently, although there are batteries which are reasonably simple to install determined by the version it is recommended to have the battery replaced rather than attempt to replace it yourself. Most batteries are rated to last for about 3,200 one way trips, but the life of the battery actually depends on how frequently you use the stairlift.

If you are on handicap or injured, benefits might be covered. Since SSI is a needs-based program and an SSI recipient must have limited income and resources, eligibility for the Plan for Achieving Self-Support (PASS) allows a person who has a disability to achieve an occupational goal. The money that is set aside under a PASS could be used for anything that contributes to an occupational objective and can be utilized to cover house adjustments through an SSI savings strategy. You'll learn more about PASS through your Louisiana Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.
