A garage door opener is an integral part of your garage door. Before they were invented in the early 20th century, garage door owners had to manually lift and lower the door. Nowadays, a simple click of the button will do all the hard work for you.
Most people don’t think about upgrading their garage door opener unless it is broken. WA Garage Doors and Gates recommends seriously considering buying a new garage door opener for the following reasons, especially if you’ve been using the same one for years:
Newer models of garage door openers project a beam that catches when a child, pet, or object passes under the door when the garage door is moving. Once detected, the garage door will automatically stop and reverse. The feature was not required for garage door openers until 1993.
Your old garage door opener probably uses a chain drive, which causes a lot of noise when the door opens and closes. Reduce the racket your garage door is making by upgrading to a newer garage door opener.
Anyone who owns a garage door knows how crucial safety features are for their family. When you purchase a new garage door opener, it may include a rolling code option, which will change the codes automatically on your remote each time you use the door.
