Type of Staircase
When shopping for a stairlift, there are several key factors to consider. First, assess what type of staircase is in your home. Does it have a straight flight, or is it curved?
Straight stairlifts are more common and are typically cheaper than curved models. If you have a curved staircase, you will likely need a custom-made lift that fits its unique shape.
Additionally, measure the width of your stairs as well as any potential obstructions like landings or doorways to ensure proper installation of your new lift.
Next, think about what type of power option best suits your lifestyle.
Most stairlifts today run on battery power, meaning they don’t require an electrical outlet from which to get power – making them ideal for homes without nearby outlets or those in need of outdoor access via their lift.
However, if you have access to an electrical outlet close by, then AC powered lifts may be a better option since they tend to be less expensive than their battery powered counterparts and require less maintenance over time.
It’s also important to take into account how much weight the lift must support when choosing a model – especially if two people will be sharing the same seat at once. The majority of models can hold between 250-280 pounds (113-127kg).
Lastly, determine how many extra features you would like included with your stairlift, such as swivel seats, folding arms or safety sensors – all of which could add on additional costs but could ultimately enhance safety and comfort during use.
Once you’ve considered all these factors, it’s time to start looking at different models offered by different manufacturers/suppliers so that you can compare features and prices side by side before making a final decision.
