A garage is an essential must-have for many homeowners. For most, the primary function of a home-garage is to house and protect a vehicle, while for others a garage is an essential storage space for items that otherwise wouldn’t fit in the home, but you won’t or can’t bear to part with.
Whatever the reason behind your affinity with your garage space, if opening and closing your garage door is a daily occurrence, it makes sense to ease the manual strain and make your life a little bit easier by installing an automatic garage door opener.
Aside from the obvious, here are some benefits of having an automatic garage door at home:
A mechanical garage door opener is effective in helping to keep your home and your possessions safe, especially from intruders. One of the main issues with the safety of manual garage doors is quite often homeowners forgetting to lock them, whereas the majority of electric garage doors will lock themselves upon closing.
Other safety features of garage door openers include rolling codes, which alters the access code each time the garage door is opened or closed, and some entries have a holiday mode, meaning all garage door remotes are disabled and it can only be opened from the inside – keeping your home safe when you are out of the country.
Another element of safety is embedded in the fact that you don’t have to leave your vehicle to open your garage door. Your garage opener remote will allow you to open, and close, your garage from the comfort of your vehicle, great for bad weather but some people also might not feel safe getting in and out of their car late at night.
Contemporary garage doors and electric door openers are often fitted with motion lighting, also commonly known as security lighting. This beneficial feature of automatic garage doors is interlinked with the security of these doors. Not only is garage door lighting beneficial for the ease of operation, but also for a homeowners safety late at night, and even for frightening away intruders who aren’t supposed to be on your home grounds.
The most obvious benefit an automatic garage door opener installation is the simplicity of use, and the convenience of automatic garage doors is far superior to that of manually operated garage doors.
As aforementioned, you don’t need to leave your vehicle to open and close your garage door. Garage door motors operate at the click of a button on your garage door remote, allowing you to drive in and out of your garage with no hassle or manual work required. This is a particularly handy feature if you have children or even pets, and you don’t want to leave your car unattended for too long, especially when the car is on a public road. Garage door opener motors also prevent the need to leave your garage or car in adverse weather conditions, whether that is heavy rain, snow or thunderstorms.
Automated access to your garage eradicates the strain of lifting, pulling or rolling of solid wood or weighty metal doors. Heavy garage doors are a burden to able-bodied and healthy young people, let alone for elderly homeowners or those with a medical condition.
Quite often, the elderly have to neglect their garage and park their vehicles on the street overnight due to the inability to open and close their heavy garage door on a daily basis. Garage door sensors and automatic door openers allow everybody, regardless of age and physical condition, to make use of their garage space effectively and drive in and out of the garage with ease and no fuss.
Surprisingly, the cost of automatic garage doors or garage door motors isn’t as eye-watering as many homeowners suspect. Due to their benefits and advantages, electric garage doors are becoming commonplace for a home garage, and therefore garage door companies are latching on to this trend and making universal garage door openers accessible for all.
