Is It Time To Have Your Garage Door Opener Replaced?

By: webadmin | October 21, 2017

Garage door openers provide a level of convenience that will typically last for many years without the need for repair or replacement. However, garage door openers are still machines that require maintenance and can malfunction. You might consider replacing your garage door opener when it’s malfunctioning, but also to improve efficiency.

If you are experiencing problems with your garage door opener or simply considering replacing it, contact Universal Garage Door Services today. 

Reasons To Replace Your Garage Door Opener

– Improved Safety

Newer model garage door openers provide increased safety features in order to protect your home, vehicles and family. Garage door openers are required to be equipped with a safety reversing mechanism that will immediately stop a closing door and then reverse if anything comes into the path of the sensor’s light beam. If your garage door opener does not have a safety reversal mechanism, you should seriously consider replacing.

– Noise Control

Older garage door openers are often loud and bothersome. While a noisy garage door opener does not necessarily indicate that it is malfunctioning, it can become a nuisance. A new opener will be quieter and smoother allowing you to avoid waking or disrupting your household when you leave the house.

– Keypad

Many older model garage openers do not come with a keypad that is mounted outside the garage. With an exterior keypad, you are able to open your garage without a remote control and allow you freedom from carrying keys, for example if you go on a walk. Many newer model keypads operate through touch, using a fingerprint rather than a code to open.

– Improved Security

Older garage door openers do not come equipped with specialized features to prevent thieves from finding the remote control code. New garage door openers are specially prepared with a unique rolling code feature that changes the code between the opener and the control after each use, keeping burglars out of your house.
