7 Reasons Why You Should Replace Your Garage Door Opener

While it’s true that garage door openers can last many years if treated properly it’s important to replace them if they show any signs of breaking down or if they are more than 10 years old. Here are 7 reasons why you should consider replacing your garage door opener: You don’t have an opener with an automatic reversal mechanism: A requirement of law since 1993 all garage door openers must have a safety reversing mechanism. This involves 2 sensors that are 6 inches above floor level on either side of the door that detect any movement passing through the light beam from an object such as a child or pet when the door is in the process of closing.

slide 3:

At the moment of detection the door is immediately halted and begins reversing direction. This is an extremely important modern safety feature and if your garage door opener doesn’t comply with it then not only are you endangering your life and the lives of others but you’re in breach of the law. Newer garage door openers are much quieter: New models that function with a chain drive unit will almost certainly be much quieter than older ones with belt drives being the quietest.

slide 4:

To give you improved security: Because the remote controls of older garage door openers function with a fixed code they are highly susceptible to criminal activity whereas newer openers with rolling codes ensure that the code is different every time it is used making it harder for criminals to try and duplicate the code. Keyless entry to your garage: Enabling you to enter a code to open the garage door instead of using a key or in the case of some modern keypads using employ fingerprint recognition and far safer overall some keypads can be installed with your existing garage door opener.

However if this is not possible you’ll need to invest in a new garage door opener. Battery backup: When the power goes down it can be a real nuisance if you can’t operate your garage door and open it when you need to. With some modern garage door openers coming with battery backup this could be extremely useful and a good reason to upgrade to a new opener especially if you live in a storm prone area with frequent power outages. Connectivity with Homelink: If you buy a new garage door opener you’ll be able to synchronize it with the Homelink feature in your car and open or close your garage door automatically.

Wireless features: Many of the latest garage door openers offer Wi-Fi and cell phone connectivity that enables you to lock or unlock your garage from a remote location or even alert you if your garage is open when you’re not there no matter where you may be. The garage door can be controlled from a range of smart devices using wireless garage door openers and often come with digital controls that offer time and temperature displays motion-sensor light controls and can be programmed to lock your garage door for certain periods.
