The installation of a stairlift in your home may be incredibly beneficial; you need to be aware of some of the best features to look for to find the best one for you:  

  • There are many kinds of stairlifts, but choosing the right for your home is not too challenging. Straight, curved, and outdoor stairlifts are available from Acorn. All Acorn Stairlifts are custom-built to suit your specific home and can be assembled the same day. Usually, a surveyor may come out to determine which lift is best suited to your needs.

  • When purchasing a stairlift, one of the most significant elements to remember is safety.

All of these features are available on Acorn Stairlifts, as well as others. Choose an option that will keep you secure while getting the best value is easy with Acorn. Our lifts have diagnostic screens that can detect any unusual errors in the stairlift. In addition, for your convenience, we have a remote control so you can conveniently reach your lift no matter where you are on the stairs.  

  • Cost efficiency is also a critical consideration—a rechargeable battery power our stairlifts. When the lift is not in operation, the battery has to be plugged into the wall. There's no reason to be concerned with annual electricity prices because the battery needs the same amount of power to charge as a standard TV. You can also save money on unnecessary fixes by seeking monitoring errors for faster remedies.  

  • Stairlifts are not always created equal. Some brands find it challenging to implement entirely accessible lifts, particularly for those who have difficulty with joint mobility. Acorn Stairlifts are suitable for people of all ages and mobility levels. The Arthritis Foundation has accredited Acorn as the only stairlift brand for ease of use. If you are looking for a stairlift for a family member or yourself, you can be assured that our stairlifts will be simple to use and navigate.  

  • Once you've bought your stairlift, you should think about maintenance and repairs repairing it. A reliable aftercare service is vital for keeping your stairlift in good working condition. Acorn offers warranty options to ensure that your lift is well-maintained all year. We advise an annual inspection to ensure that engineers can perform all preventative repairs to avoid unforeseen problems in the future.  

Making a significant investment, such as a stairlift, necessitates multiple considerations. The choice may be a life-changing one. With the right stairlift, you can improve your home's mobility, functionality, and safety.
