Are you extra concerned with the safety of your family? Have you listened to too many true crime documentaries? Maybe your neighborhood’s Facebook page has mentioned some weird instances lately that have you on edge, or maybe you just want to upgrade your home’s security to ensure safety.
There are many reasons you may want to replace your garage door opener, all of them valid. If you’ve been on the fence about upgrading because your garage door opener still works most of the time, keep reading. Just because your garage door opener isn’t technically broken doesn’t mean you can’t replace it!
Your Garage Door Won’t Open
It seems obvious, but if the garage door won’t open, you need to replace it. More often than not, the reason your garage door isn’t opening is because of problems with the remote, rather than the opener itself. If you’re in this boat, don’t resign yourself to using the front door just yet. Instead, reach out to the professionals at the Door and Fence Store to discuss garage door maintenance.
You’re Interested in New Security Features
Security is essential in your home. The security technology used in the late 1990s isn’t nearly as good as the technology now—make sure your garage door opener is with the times.
Today, there are openers that allow you to operate your door from anywhere with an internet connection. Similar to smart thermostats, these devices enable you to see what’s going on with your garage door even when you’re not home. Was it just closed? Did someone leave it open?
An even more future-focused upgrade is finger-print detection openers. With these upgrades in place, you never have to worry about random intruders accessing your home!
It’s Too Loud
Have you ever been woken up by your kids coming into the house late at night? Better yet, have you ever woken up your kids heading out early in the morning? Your garage door opener doesn’t need to be that loud.
In fact, a loud garage door is a good sign it’s time to replace the opener as a whole. The issue may be a loose spring or the whole track may need to be realigned. In many cases, the best solution is to simply upgrade to a new garage door opener. Our LiftMaster openers come with a rubber belt instead of old-school chains. Everyone will get a good night’s sleep when you switch to these openers.
You Want To Bump Up Security
As a homeowner, safety should be one of your main concerns. Any entrance into your home should be safe and secure—especially one of your biggest!
In this case, we’re speaking specifically about auto-reversal mechanisms. You don’t want your door to crash on any unsuspecting individuals. This mechanism uses laser sensors to determine if there’s a person or object in the door’s closing path. If you don’t have this function, it’s time for a new opener.
Hopefully, this quick look provides you with the information you need to buy a new garage door opener! Reach out to The Door & Fence Store for your new product!
