Garage door openers are precisely what their name implies. They are a piece of equipment used to automate the process of opening and closing your garage doors. The whole purpose of an automatic garage door opener is to make it easier for the homeowner. Without one, you are forced to open the door manually, back your vehicle out, then get out of the vehicle to close the door. A garage door opener eliminates all that work. When you install a garage door opener, all you have to do is push a button to open and close your door. This makes your life a lot easier and provides additional security to your garage, as your door cannot be lifted without a designated opener paired specifically with it.
Though many garage door openers have the same basic features, there is always an opportunity to upgrade to a model with extra features. If you’re purchasing a new opener, our team will help you understand which features come standard and which models have the extras. Obviously, these extra features come at a price, but often this is justified by the added convenience and security the features provide. We can help you find the perfect opener with all the features you need and install it. We’ll go over the standard features as well as some of the extra add-ons below:
Most standard garage door openers will function in a similar manner to lift and lower the door. The opener consists of an electric motor that drives a trolley along a rail. This trolley is connected to the garage door, and when the opener is activated, the trolley pulls the door open or closed. Though most garage doors operate in this basic manner, there are still different types of openers in terms of how the motor moves the trolley. These different types of openers include:
Unfortunately, your garage door opener won’t last forever, and you’ll have to replace it. If your opener has been acting strange, it may be trying to tell you that it’s time for a replacement. Our team can help you determine if your opener can be repaired or if it’s time to consider buying a new one. Some of the most common signs that your opener needs to be replaced include:
