Top Reasons To Replace Your Garage Door Opener

Your garage door opener is an important part of your home. Without it, you can’t open and close your garage door. Here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Cincinnati, OH, we recommend you look at the condition of your opener and determine if it is time for a new one.

Here are the top reasons to replace your garage door opener:

It Was Manufactured Before 1993

In 1993, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission established new rules for garage door openers. These rules were created to reduce the fatality rate of children and pets that were getting caught under doors.

All openers that were manufactured after 1993 were required to have a safety mechanism installed. The mechanism keeps the door from closing if something interrupts the sensors. For the safety of your family, you need to replace an opener that was installed prior to that year.

You Hear a Lot of Noise When it is Running

Of course there will be some amount of noise expected when operating your door, but not so much that it wakes the dead. A loud opener is an indicator that it is time to install a new one. You might be surprised at how quiet new openers are.

The Opener Isn’t Secure

Older models were not made with the type of security that newer models have. At one time, openers had fixed codes that could easily be hacked, allowing someone to break in. Modern openers actually have rolling codes, which keep hackers from being able to get the frequency needed to open your door.

You Want a Keypad

Having a keypad on the outside of your garage makes it very convenient for getting in and out. Some opener models come with a keypad that can be installed. One of the benefits of a keypad, is that you are able to change the code easily. That means, if you go out of town, you can set a temporary code for a neighbor to check on your home. After you get back, you can change the code back to what it normally is.

It Doesn’t Have a Battery Backup

One of the biggest problems with garage door openers is that they rely on power. When your power goes out, you need a solution to open or close your door. A battery backup system will make it so you can use your equipment no matter what.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
