Automatic Garage Door Openers are considered a necessity by most homeowners today. You don't want to get out of the car in driving rain, blizzards, freezing cold or scorching heat - just press the button on your remote transmitter and your garage door opens automatically.
That is how automatic garage door openers work. At the mere push of a button your door opens or closes. No more getting out to unlock the door.
No more bending over, pulling on the handle, or pushing the door up to fully open position, or pulling it down to close.
If you have a bad back or are getting a bit older you know how little is required to throw your back out - not pleasant.
You know the right way is to use an automatic electric operator.
Over the years since garage door openers were first introduced in the mid-1940's, manufacturers have increased safety and security features.
There is a large DIY (do-it-yourself) market for the mechanically inclined. Automatic garage door openers are not difficult to install if you follow instructions - they are included with your new system.
Home centers, department stores and hardware stores all market garage door openers. They are also easily obtained through the internet.
Monthly maintenance will keep your system working smoothly and efficiently for years. Manufacturers recommended maintenance schedules are published in your owners manual.
Many repairs can easily be done by the homeowner. Always remember to call the manufacturers service department if you have questions.
