Newer doors are less noisy
Your old garage door may still be quite strong and sturdy, but the noise it's making when it moves may be getting on your last nerve. Newer doors are made to be less noisy. If your old garage door is driving everyone crazy, think about replacing it with a newer, quieter option. Modern doors have moving parts – such as rollers and bearings – that produce much less noise than older models. Call our company to discuss your options.
Consider getting a backup battery system
Power outages are always a major inconvenience, but not more so then when you come home and can't get into your garage. If you have a backup battery installed, you'll be able to continue using your opener for several hours after the power goes out. Our experts can show you the best choices for this type of feature.
Unplug your opener when you go on vacation
If you and your family are planning to go on a vacation, then you should unplug your garage door opener from the electrical socket. This will make it impossible for burglars and thieves to exploit it in order to get inside your home. Of course, when you come back, you'll have to plug it back in before you could start using it again.
