Options HME carries a variety of stair lifts to suit your home’s needs. We not only specialize in stair lift installation, but also service after the sale. Regardless of the model you choose, Options HME provides a 1 year labor warranty. After the 1 year warranty, we continue to provide service, giving you the option to purchase an additional labor warranty or pay per hour. Our stair lifts also carry some of the best stair lift warranties on parts, including some models with a lifetime warranty on the motor, gears, and rail. We have been installing stair lifts, wheelchair lifts, and wheelchair ramps in Illinois and St. Louis since 2007.
Can a stair lift be installed outside?
We carry outdoor stairlift models. While a regular stairlift cannot be installed outside, outdoor stairlifts are designed to handle the wet/dry and hot/cold conditions of the outdoors. If you need a stair lift to help you up and down the steps to a porch or deck, check out the outdoor stair lifts that we provide.
How is a stair lift powered?
Powering a stair lift is very simple. All of the models that we carry plug straight into a normal wall socket, so no additional wiring is necessary in most homes. We are often asked “will it work if the power goes out?” Yes, the stair lifts we offer are powered by a set of 12 volt batteries, so in the event of a power outage, the lifts will still work. Some units can make up to 60 trips on just battery power alone. Our Handicare Xclusive has an optional continuous charge feature, meaning it will charge at any point on the rail.
Helping others is at the core of what we do at Options HME. We don’t want it to stop with us though. Working in the home medical field has been very rewarding for us, and we want others to have the opportunity to enjoy it as well. To give others the chance to work in such a rewarding field, we have developed a college scholarship program. It provides assistance to graduating high school seniors interested in studying in the medical field during their college careers.
