There are some tanning bed tips that are useful when purchasing a new or used tanning bed. One thing that many people do not think about when purchasing a tanning bed for home use is that there will have to be replacement lamps and bulbs bought as well as other parts over time as the tanning bed gets older. If the tanning bed is bought from a commercial tanning place so that it is used, then there may be some other expenses up front other than the price of the bed before the bed can be used. Often the bulbs will have to be replaced in used tanning beds because they have not been well taken care of in a salon that has now gone out of business. These used tanning beds should be checked thoroughly since the tanning bed parts are not cheap to buy.
Types of Tanning Bed Parts
The most common replacement tanning bed part is the bulbs or lamps. The tanning bed parts can cost from just under three hundred dollars to close to five hundred dollars to replace. This is almost as much as half the cost of the new tanning bed when it is a conventional tanning bed bought new. Some of the tanning bed part companies will provide full service and replace the bulbs in addition to the delivery. In other cases, the people will have to replace the bulbs themselves after they are delivered to them.
There are other tanning bed parts that have to be replaced and should be checked on a regular basis. There is the blue filter facial glass that needs to be replaced at times. There are also capacitors, ballasts and acrylics that must be checked and replaced when they get worn out. There are also electrical starters that can wear out in tanning bed parts, and there are timers that are important to the person’s safety when in the tanning bed so too much exposure is not obtained. In addition to all these things, there are receptacles, shocks, sockets, relays and hinges that can also wear out and need replacement.
Tanning bed parts also include other parts that are necessary for keeping the bed in working order. The tanning bed needs to be disinfected and sanitized on a regular basis so that the person can stay healthy while using the bed multiple times per week in most cases. All of these expenses in tanning bed replacement parts need to be considered before buying a tanning bed.
