There are many reasons why you should get a stairlift. For example, If you suffer from joint problems, mobility issues or any other medical problems that affect movement, then you will benefit from one. Stairlifts don’t take long to install and the only requirement needed to power your lift is a plug located near the stairlift.
Stairlifts come in a range of shapes and sizes to ensure that they fit seamlessly into your home. Available in a variety of upholstery colours, you can rest assured that the stairlifts will fit into your home’s aesthetic. But do stairlifts use a lot of electricity?
Throughout this blog, we will be exploring stairlift electrical requirements and much more. For more information, read on!
How Much Electricity Does a Stairlift Use?
When purchasing a stairlift, there is a wide range of things you need to consider such as the cost, type of stairlift and amount of electricity the stairlift uses. The amount of electricity a stairlift uses depends on the model and how often the stairlift is used.
A typical stairlift uses between 0.024 and 0.33kwh of electricity per hour. Most stairlifts are designed to be energy efficient by using as little electricity as possible. Overall, you should expect to spend less than £60 per year on electricity.
The stairlifts we offer don’t use a lot of electricity. In fact, a standard stairlift only uses a small amount of electricity, which is equivalent to a small television on standby.
So, if you are interested in purchasing a stairlift but worried about the hidden costs, then you can rest assured as here at Halton Stairlifts, we offer no obligation quotes with no hidden costs so you can
Battery Powered Stairlifts
All of our stairlifts are battery-powered and are automatically recharged when at their charging points. Our stairlifts come with a battery backup in case of a power cut. Therefore you should have enough battery power to make around 10-15 trips until the power returns.
It is important that you never turn off your stairlift as this will drain the batteries and prevent your lift from working. On average, stairlift batteries are said to last around 2-5 years depending on the usage.
Each of our stairlifts plugs directly into your main existing power supply, therefore preventing hassle and mess during installation as no changes are needed to the electrics of your home. The main benefit of a battery-powered stairlift is that even in the event of a power cut, the lift will still work.
