Do You Need Garage Door Opener Repair?

With the upcoming winter and holiday seasons and average highs between 48- and 37-degrees Fahrenheit now is the time to consider garage door opener repair or replacement.

Addressing problems early on will prevent you from being faced with having to exit your vehicle’s warm confines to enter your home when it is a chilly 37°F.

The average lifespan for garage door openers is ten to 15 years. The torsion or extension springs will need to be replaced every three to 14 years.

The spring’s lifespan is determined by your daily usage, as they are designed with 10,000 cycles. One cycle is complete with the door’s full operation. 

Routinely replacing the springs and staying on top of other essential maintenance tasks, especially monthly tests, can help extend the opener’s life. A repair professional possesses the specialized skills and equipment required for garage door opener repair.

When to Replace the Opener?

It may be more cost-effective to replace an older model or one that has been poorly maintained. Incredible advancements in security, safety, and convenience may also make replacement an attractive option.

A garage door opener repair professional will inspect all components of your system to identify the cause of any issues you may be experiencing and provide you with their expert recommendation.

If a replacement is recommended, consider a smart device. You can monitor and operate the opener from the device’s companion app on your smartphone.

Some models also include automatic closure timers, integrated video cameras, battery backup units, and advanced technology features such as secure in-garage delivery for Amazon Prime packages (LiftMaster®).
