Whenever the power goes out, it’s a huge inconvenience. You find yourself walking around in the dark, looking for flashlights and candles to help you find the way around your house. We are often asked if stair lifts work during a power outage, and the answer is yes. 

The majority of stair lifts run on batteries. So even when the power goes out, they will continue to run for quite some time, making getting around your home that much easier. With that said, if suspect that your power will be out for an extended amount of time, try to use your stair lift conservatively to save the battery power.

When the power does go out, we also suggest that you limit your trips around your home during the night time. Walking in the dark with no light source is a sure way to have an accident and get injured.

If your stair lift stops running, whether it’s due to a power outage or some other reason, be sure to give us a call. Our stair lift specialists at NC Stairway Solutions in Greenville, NC are dedicated to helping you get around your home safely.
