Three Reasons To Replace Your Old Garage Door Opener

Reasons To Replace Your Old Garage Door Opener | Garage Door Repair San Pablo, CA

Unfortunately, your garage door opener won't last forever. Any electromechanical device this complex will eventually need to be replaced. Of course, there are other reasons why you may want to consider getting a new unit installed, and we explain what those are below.

  1. Consistently Poor Performance

    It is easy to notice when the garage door opener is malfunctioning. In some cases, the device won't even start working. Other times, it will seem to be running fine, except that your door won't move. Then there are scenarios like when the door keeps reversing, or starts to open a little but then immediately closes. If the motor starts making strange noises, or your door starts behaving erratically and the rest of its mechanical parts aren't causing the problem, then it may be time to call a professional. Of course, if you keep having to get your opener repaired over and over again, then replacing it is probably going to be a better choice.
  2. A Better Drive System

    In many cases, people choose to get a new opener not because it became unusable, but because they're sick of the noise it produces. Chain drive openers, which are the most common type, are notorious for being the loudest option, as well as the most affordable one. However, belt drive models are virtually silent, especially in comparison. Anyone with an attached garage would greatly benefit from this type of drive system, which is why people tend to decide to replace their motor unit earlier than they need to.
  3. Additional Technological Improvements

    Some people decide to get a new opener due to the fact that they've had the same model for a number of years, and the advancement in technology that occurred since they got it have made some aspects of it obsolete. Modern Genie and LiftMaster garage door opener models, for example, use rolling code technology, which prevents them from being remotely hacked and exploited. There are other features that major brands like Amarr, Chamberlain, and Craftsman adopted. Smartphone and Wi-Fi connectivity is a great example. It allows garage door owners to do away with the old-fashioned remote and simply use their phones to open and close the door. There are a lot of additional features that may be worth opener replacement, such as a backup battery system, for example. If you are in the market for a new model that will make your home more safe and secure, then give our team at Garage Door Repair San Pablo a call.
