Realtors can list the home is appropriate for reachable independent living and that the stairlift is a high utility value for physically disabled people and when a purchaser needs it removed, then that chance is offered by them.

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

Electric-power (AC) stairlifts need a grounded normal 110v/20 amp outlet found at or close to the bottom or top of the stairs. Direct current, or battery powered (DC) stairlifts use batteries capable of being recharged. Plug in the DC powered stairlift to recharge the battery when it is not being used. There are also DC powered units that enable the AC electricity to continuously charge the batteries while the DC power is used by the stairlift from the batteries. The charger unit will convert the voltage to DC. When there is a power outage, the battery used stairlift will continue to run until it runs out of electricity. The DC stairlift WOn't run in case the transformer burns out and you should get the charger.

12) How are they powered?

Here's another remote to add to your set, in case you've ever fought for the remote. You can conserve energy by turning it off with the remote also when you're not using the stairlift. Stairlifts come in both battery-powered (D/C) and electrical (A/C) models. One concern is whether you reside in a region that experiences lots of power outages, because you don't want to be stranded mid-elevator during a thunderstorm. (Nevertheless, ask the manufacturer about the backup power system that should be contained in your version.) Also, consider the cost of replacing the battery as well as the life of the battery. Normally, 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 problems particular to battery models, others favor battery powered stairlifts, since they could lead to lower electric bills, although the expense of the electricity to control the stairlift has been considered negligible by most makers. You really do not need to plug in a battery charger after every use, because the battery version has a wall plug to maintain the battery charged. Another thing to consider is the way mechanically inclined the user is, cables have to be disconnected and reconnected to add the new battery and because the seat and housing on some versions must be removed. Ask for instructions and see whether it's something youwill need to replace yourself. We'd be very happy to help you out. Make sure there's a spark plug within a couple of feet of the lift if you decide on an electrical version. No special outlets are mandatory.
