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 Cicero home from damage related to installation. The treads of the stairs can handle the few screws. The holes are not difficult to cover. The carpeting will also have holes in it. The total worth of your house will not depreciate. Realtors used to recommend that a stairlift be removed prior to putting your house out there, however given increased life expectancy, if you're planning on selling your home, this is not any longer the case. You may even completely remove the stairlift with no signs of setup when you want or need it or transfer.

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

Due to individual circumstances you could be facing, you may need to rent a stairlift instead of buy one. Some makers offer this option understanding that there are certain occasions when a customer may just need it for a brief period of time. Perhaps you may have firm for an extended period of time which will reap the benefits of its use, maybe you let your home, or someone in your family has had surgery or an injury and needs it briefly. Sometimes, depending on the medical condition, you just can't be sure how long you'll need the stairlift and renting appears like the best alternative on a month-to-month basis. Some Illinois companies even offer lease to own applications. However, it's vital that you consider the price of installation and de-installation before selecting this option instead of purchasing a stairlift that is secondhand.

Can these be used on carpeted floors?

Elevators can be installed on all types of flooring (carpet, concrete, tile, marble, linoleum, or bare wooden stairway). Installers can twist right through the carpeting. All you'll see is the tops of the screws through the supporting mounts underneath the railing. Professional installers do not cut the trails inside the house, because the aluminum chips are quite hard to remove from the carpets. One thing that experts mention is that if your carpet is likely to need replacing in the next 5 years, you may want to replace it before you've got a stairlift. Otherwise, you will need to factor in the price of uninstalling and re installing the stairlift.

How do stair lifts work?

Basically, it is like riding in your ski lift, minus the bitter cold. A safety belt keeps you securely in place as well as a foot rest prevents you from hitting the steps while utilizing the lift. Some stairlifts come with mounted call/send controls on the wall close to the paths for a user or a remote control can be used by you to send the chair where you would like it to go. Occasionally the control panel is situated on the seat arm. Become knowledgeable about the particular characteristics of your unit. Once you're prepared, depending on the version you leased or bought, you can control the speed and adjust the seat as you travel up and down your staircase. The lift consists of a a passenger car a motor, the control system, and your comfy seat in order that you could once again regain your mobility. Some models rely on a belt like a conveyor belt and a rack and pinion system is used by other versions.

Are there any structural modifications needed before installing a lift?

No. Since stairlifts don't attach to the wall, there are not any adjustments that are mandatory. The stairlift is installed into existing stair treads. The single thing that we do advocate is that if you're intending to modify the flooring or carpet on your stairs in the next five years, you may want to intend to do it before you install your stairlift to prevent future removal and re installation costs.

How are they powered?

You can conserve energy by turning it off with the remote also, when you are not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) versions. One consideration is whether you live in an area that experiences a lot of power outages, as you don't want to be stranded mid-lift during a thunderstorm. (Nevertheless, ask the maker about the backup power system which should be contained in your model.) Additionally, consider the price of replacing the life of the battery and the battery. Typically, depending on the brand, it costs $30-$160 to replace the battery or batteries , not including service. While some prefer electrical models for reasons which range from battery life to some apparatus issues specific to battery versions, others prefer battery-powered stairlifts, since they are able to result in lower electric bills, although the cost of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered insignificant by most producers. You don't have to plug after every use in a battery charger, because the battery version has a wall plug to keep the battery charged. Another thing to consider is how inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to insert the newest battery and because casing and the seat on some versions have to be removed. Ask for instructions and see if it's something that you'll 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 choose an electrical model. No specific outlets are essential.

Does AETNA cover the cost of these lifts?

No. Aetna bases this determination on whether several criteria are met. The Aetna member must be: (1) incapable of standing up from a regular armchair at home; (2) and must have severe arthritis of the hip or knee, or have serious neuromuscular disorder; (3) and the seat lift mechanism should be prescribed to effect improvement, or arrest or retard deterioration in the member's condition; (4) and once standing, the member must possess the capability to ambulate. Then, Aetna would consider seat lift mechanisms medically necessary durable medical equipment (DME). Nonetheless, Aetna will not cover stairlifts because they're considered dwelling modifications. As described in the question that handles Medicare coverage of these medical devices, they essentially follow the rules for lift mechanisms of Medicare.

Does it increase or decrease the value of my home?

The total worth of your house won't depreciate. Should you plan on selling your Cicero residence, realtors used to recommend that a stairlift be removed prior to placing your house on the Illinois marketplace, nevertheless given increased life expectancy, this is no longer the case. You can even entirely remove the stairlift with no signs of setup when you desire or no longer want it or go. 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 when a purchaser needs it removed, then they offer that possibility.

Why are they so expensive to install?

Most importantly, they include routine care and help you every step of the way. Open up any of the setup guides and also you'll see a warning that strict adherence to the installation directions is needed and any limited warranty will be voided by any deviation and eliminate any chance you have of holding the maker liable for any damage or liability. Professional setup is far more economical in the long-run with regards to service guarantee and long-term care because they are trained to follow safety measures and experienced at installation. The installer is getting paid to properly install your unit in order you don't face serious hazards that do result when an inexperienced individual opens the manual for the first time and installs a stairlift. A Cicero professional also knows how to make sure that the stairlift follows fire exit demands, how to ensure that assure that all the appropriate operating features are enabled, and the charger connections are operating correctly to prevent serious injuries. The price you pay to truly have a trusted and trained tech ensures your security and the longevity of your purchase. Repairs and re installations can take longer and cost more than a proper first setup. Also, installment includes lifting a fair quantity of weight. Many setups could be finished in a few hours by a professional.

How sturdy are these lifts to install?

The sturdiness of path and the seat assembly of a stairlift can fluctuate so that it is great to do some assignments. Some companies maintain that the toughest in the industry is the model that offers the heaviest weight capacity at 400 lbs.. Heavier duty versions need larger batteries and more sturdy paths. Heavy duty models cost more so be sure you get the model that fits the individual who'll use the stairlift. Always check whether the producer has a proven reputation for durable, safe and well made products.

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

Yes. Recycled and reconditioned stairlifts are available and are an alternative. Custom-designed curved stairlifts are less easy to resell, since the angles round the curves truly should be a very close match. Otherwise, a recycled stairlift offers a lot of advantages and is not fundamentally bad only because it's used. Many Illinois stairlift companies resell them used and buy back stairlifts. A stairlift that was used resold and may have been removed, as the person who depended on the raise improved in their condition, they moved, or the need for it was temporary. They cost considerably less than new models. When buying a lift that is secondhand, be sure you ask some questions. Inquire about the prior owner as well as 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. Inquire questions that are mechanical regarding the status of the battery, the working status of the tracks the lift, and its motor. You can shorten the span of tracks if needed as mentioned before. Nevertheless, be sure you stick to quite a measured approach for cutting tracks, because a mistake will cost you.
