Garage Door Opener Repair & Installation

The garage door opener is a really important part of your garage door. It is the heart of the door and ensures easy opening and closing of the door. Despite having that simple purpose, garage door openers come in different types and varieties to choose from. If you are looking to purchase a new opener for your garage door opener installation, there are some factors you should have in mind. Here are some of the things to look out for in your new garage door opener.

Connectivity- one of the properties that most homeowners want in their appliances and gadgets is connectivity. Most of the home appliances are now connectable to the smart phone making operation pretty easy. Garage door openers are no different. You can now be able to purchase a garage door opener that will connect to your smart phone so you can operate the door from anywhere you are provided you have an internet connection. With this you can provide remote access to your garage or home even when you are not around. It is also a great feature to have if you want to always ensure your garage door is locked at all times.

Reliability – if you rely on the garage door for entry into your home, then you know how frustrating it can be to be denied access to your home due to power outages. For this reason, some garage door openers come with a battery backup that allows operation of the garage door for about 20 cycles when the power is out. This enhances reliability of the garage door. Also the quality of the garage door opener itself should be highly reliable. Go for trusted brands to avoid regular garage door opener repairs.

Power ratings- garage door openers have different power ratings suitable for different types of doors. The powers are rated from ½ HP to ¾ HP. The power needs are calculated from the type of door that you have so that you do not have an opener that is unable to handle the door appropriately.
