COVID 19 Statement

These are exceptional times. With Coronavirus – COVID-19 - we all face an unprecedented global challenge. The Stiltz Group continue to review activities on a daily basis to ensure we comply with safety directives at all times. At the same time, we look to balance this with providing the expected levels of service and support to our customers while being mindful of minimising risk for all concerned.

We are acutely aware that our customers tend to fall into higher risk categories, whether due to age, or as a result of pre-existing medical conditions. Therefore it is all the more important for our current and future customers to maintain their safety and independence at home with the help of their homelifts; this contributes towards the current policy of social distancing, especially important for seniors and those with compromised immune systems. Reduction of accidents within the home at this time will also help minimize the burden on the increasingly stressed healthcare system.

We are keen to ensure those who need new homelifts installed and those who require their lifts to be serviced, can expect these activities to take place without fear of risk to their health. There are multiple online resources that will guide you to assist in providing a safe workplace for your employees and help protect the customers whose home you visit. Two we would recommend are:

CDC - click here to visit
OSHA - click here to visit

We are in this together and are standing by to offer you as much support as possible during this challenging time. If you have any questions, concerns or doubts about anything, please contact your territory manager or the technical services team and we will do our best to assist.

As nights grow longer, leaves change color and the chill sets in, we know that fall is here and it is time to enjoy all that the cooler months offer, whether that is wrapping up in sweaters for a crisp walk or enjoying a cocoa in the evening.

Fall and winter do come at a financial cost to homeowners however, as heating and lighting our homes for longer in the evenings adds to energy bills. With a bit of thought and planning we can take measures to keep costs down as we embrace the coming season.

Make a meal of it

Enjoying hearty and warming food must be one of the best loved things about cold weather. Whether it is a rich chowder, a tasty pasta bake, or a steaming casserole, we need food that builds us up and keeps us healthy.

To save costs, try planning your weekly meals in advance. This means there is less food waste as ingredients can be shared over two or more meals. Also, meals can be made in bulk and frozen for another week which is more energy and time efficient as well.

Get energy efficient

A lot of the winter costs come from increased energy bills, so the start of fall is the perfect moment to review the energy you are using and whether it is truly essential. Some appliances ‘on standby’ use almost as much as when they are in use, so unplugging these devices can help reduce energy bills.

Older appliances generally use more energy than their more up to date versions, and some appliances are designed to be especially energy efficient. Stiltz home elevators, for example, are designed to use as little energy as boiling a kettle for each journey between floors.

Stay warm and save money

To lower your bills and keep your home warm during fall and beyond, consider insulating your home and check there are no gaps around windows and doorways where warm air could escape.

Draught excluders and heavy drapes are a simple and cost-effective way to eliminate cold air meaning the heating doesn’t have to work so hard to keep the home cozy.

Other ways to rely less on the heating are to add a few extra sweaters to the winter wardrobe, and to keep a quilt handy for when you are relaxing in the evening.
