Frequently Asked Questions

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

Yes. Stairlifts that are reconditioned and recycled are available and are an alternative. Custom designed curved stairlifts are less easy to resell, as the angles round the curves really must be a very close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift isn't naturally bad only because it's used and offers lots of advantages. Many New York stairlift companies resell them used and buy back stairlifts. A stairlift that was used may have been removed and resold, as the person who depended on the raise improved in their own state, they went, or the need for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new models. Be sure to ask some questions when buying a lift that is used. Ask about the prior owner and their weight /height requirements. Ask about the age of the used model. We recommend that you really do not purchase because that version is close to retirement, one which is 10 years old. Ask mechanical questions about the condition of the battery, the working shape of the lift, the tracks, and its own motor. You can shorten the span of tracks if needed, as mentioned before.

2) How much do they weigh?

The units are hefty, which is one of the reasons we do not advocate trying 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. Courses and seat collections come in various sizes and shapes and are created of different kinds of substances depending on its finest attributes and the model.

3) Why are they so expensive to install?

Most of all, they include routine maintenance and help you every step of the way. Professional setup is considerably more economic in the long-run with regards to service, warranty and long-term care since they're trained to follow security measures and experienced at setup. The installer is getting paid to properly install your unit in order you do not face serious hazards that do result when the guide for the first time opens and installs a stairlift. A Utica professional also knows the way to make sure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, the way to make sure the charger connections are working correctly to avoid serious accidents, and assure that all the proper functioning features are enabled. The cost you pay to really have a trained and trustworthy tech ensures your safety as well as the longevity of your purchase. Additionally, setup involves lifting a good amount of weight. Many setups can be finished in a few hours by a professional.

4) How much do stair lifts costs?

Based on Consumer Affairs, the top nine stairlift brand names starting with the best-rated comprise: Acorn Stairlifts, Accessible Building, Ascent Stairlifts, Silver Cross, Bruno, AmeriGlide, State Home Elevator, 101 Freedom and Stannah. Specialists rate these based on an assortment of features, variables, and suitability due to circumstances. Their costs are not publicized by several firms since every staircase differs. Used stairlifts can cost under $2,000. Rental and aid systems are available. $6,000 and for a custom curved railing staircase prices are around $10,000. to for a straight flight of stairs seem to spend between $2,500 While some usually do not contain installation in the price, some products are sold as complete packages including installment and also a warranty. The shape of the stairwell, the span of the seat style, the course, labor, and also the attributes you want decide the price.

5) How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of path and the seat construction of a stairlift can vary so it is not bad to do a little bit of homework. To be able to find out how tough a stairlift is, make certain it's powerful enough for the heaviest user by comparing maximum weight capacities. More than a few companies claim the most durable in the sector is the model that offers the most substantial weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty versions need bigger batteries and sturdier tracks. Most elevators are made to accommodate passengers who weigh 250 pounds or less. Heavy-duty models cost more so be sure you get the model that matches the person who will use the stairlift. Always check whether the producer has a proven reputation for durable, safe and well-made products.

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

Someone qualifies for Social Security disability benefits when they have worked in work that was insured by Social Security and have a medical condition that meets their definition of handicap. Benefits may be insured if you're on impairment or injured. Since SSI is a needs-based plan 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 objective. The money that's set aside under a PASS could be used for anything that leads to an occupational goal and may be used to cover home adjustments via an SSI savings strategy. It's possible for you to learn more about PASS through your New York Social Security Administration office or call toll free 800 772 1213.

7) How are they powered?

Here's another remote to add to your group, in case you have ever fought for the remote. You can save energy by turning it away with the remote also, when you are not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electric (A/C) versions. One consideration is whether you live in an area that experiences a great deal of power outages, because you do not need to be stranded mid-lift during a storm. (Yet, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system which should be contained in your model.) Additionally, consider the cost of replacing the life of the battery and also the battery. While some favor electrical versions for reasons ranging from battery life to some device problems unique to battery models, others favor battery powered stairlifts, since they could lead to lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to operate the stairlift has been considered negligible by most manufacturers. Because the battery version still has a wall plug to keep the battery charged you don't have to plug in a battery charger after every use. Another thing to consider is the way inclined the user is, because the seat and casing on some versions have to be removed and cables need to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the newest battery. Sometimes, this becomes a service call to an installer to make life simpler. Ask for instructions and see whether it's something you'll want to replace yourself. We'd be pleased to help you out. Make sure there's a spark plug within several feet of the elevator in case you decide on an electric model. No particular outlets are essential. Request the best way to change the back up fuse on an electrical stairlift.

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

No. Since stairlifts do not attach to the wall, there are no 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 change the flooring or carpeting in your stairs in the following five years, you may want to intend to do it before you install your stairlift to prevent future removal and re installation prices.

9) Can the track be shortened?

Yes. The tracks may be fixed as well as the span could be reduced. Nonetheless, using the right personal protective gear is highly advised. Some manufacturers of supply that is stairlifts do-it-yourself cutting instructions. Hereis the catch. Ensuring you get the length of the stairs to correspond with the path length is highly critical. Without proper measurements, you may realize that the installment leads to more problems instead of relying on professional installers with expertise. If you cut the tracks wrong, you might have difficulty returning them depending on the return policy. We highly advise that you do not install your own stairlift or cut the track yourself. It's not too safe. An incorrect shortening of the wrong length of course or the path can not prove to be terribly safe, especially when the path is too short. If the individual who wants the stairlift steps off of the seat short of the ground floor or on top of the stairs, they are able to injure themselves. It's extremely important that the chair along with the tracks work exactly. Accredited installers will save you from lots of head aches and stress and potential prevent terrible injuries.

10) How much do electric stair lifts cost in Utica?

Used electric-powered stairlifts can begin at about $1,299.00, while battery powered stairlifts can start at about $1,399.00 in New York. 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 purchase price of replacement and care batteries. Frequently, it's recommended to have the battery replaced rather than attempt to replace it yourself although there are batteries that are reasonably simple to install determined by the version. 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.

11) Can these lifts be used on wood flooring?

Lifts can be installed on all forms of flooring (carpeting, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairway). Holes will probably be apparent without carpeting when the stairlift is removed. However, the holes are not large and could be filled. Stairlifts may also be installed on wooden outside steps. Actually, most professionally installed stairlifts in Utica cost between $500 and $1,000 for the labour given a variety of factors based on the issue of the job. Tile, metal staircases, or concrete are somewhat more troublesome than wooden stairway. Having wooden stairs as a construction material of the stairway makes the occupation for an installer less labor intensive and much more affordable for you.

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

Because they're home alterations, not durable medical equipment, Medicare does not cover installation prices and stairlift equipment. Durable medical equipment contains elevators that are used to help a patient in out of a chair or bed. In New York, persons with limited financial resources might be eligible for the New York Medicaid COPES Waiver, recently replaced by the Community First Choice Alternative. It enables people who need nursing home level attention to receive that attention at home and supports independent living, including coverage for home modifications. Family members may be compensated for supplying caregiving assistance. According to the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP), some private health insurance suppliers may offer financial assistance for some home modifications if the lift is recognized as a medical necessity. It is best to review different insurance policies. Some private health or long-term care insurance may help pay for home adjustments that are limited. Check with your Utica insurance carrier to review coverage alternatives. The National Association of Home Builders suggests that some auto insurance, worker's compensation, long-term care policies, state catastrophic accident insurance plans, and medical trust funds can cover the costs of a house modification.
