If you’re going through health difficulties, pain or disability then stairlifts should be a consideration for your home. Stairlifts give you a freedom of motion that you wouldn’t be able to have otherwise. Stairs can be a difficult part of your home to navigate when you’re dealing with health conditions or injuries.

We try to help our customers as best we can, advising them on the best stairlifts for their needs. In this article, we talk about a few considerations you should make when buying a stairlift. From different types of stairlifts to different ways of powering them, there are a variety of aspects you should think about when looking at a stairlift for your home.
There are certain models on the market that offer battery powered stairlifts which make for less complex installations. Mains powered stairlifts are the status quo as batteries over time lose their capacity. However, your home may be better suited for a battery powered stairlift. If you’re given the choice, you should ask yourself which is going to suit you more. Speak with our stairlift consultants who have decades of experience with stairlifts, offering them to households across London.
Do you have straight or curved stairs in your home? This will change the type of stairlift you buy due to the type of rail you’ll need. Custom rails will have to be made for curved stairlifts. This means that curved stairlifts will usually cost more depending on the type of stairlift you go for. Depending on the geometry of your staircase you could substitute two or more straight stairlifts for a curved one which might actually save money. This will, however, require two separate stairlifts which means getting off of one & getting on the other.
Stairlifts might be touted as power drainers but the reality is they aren’t! Old stairlifts might be costly to power, but new stairlifts have come a long way. Stairlifts are now fitted with modern power saving features that make them much more efficient. Powering a stairlift is now as cheap & easy as powering any other appliance in your home. As a rule of thumb, most stairlifts very little electricity during its use. (We estimate between 0.10p – 0.20p per day).
With our estimates, stairlifts are actually one of the cheapest “appliances” to run in your home. Based on our average use which is around 14 times a day, stairlifts actually use very little power.
