Our team believes in making sure our customers are as well informed as they can be. We asked our expert garage door technicians to write down some tips that could provide homeowners with some useful pieces of advice. Check them out below.
Consider getting a backup battery
Power surges can wreak havoc on the circuit board of your garage door opener. The best way to prevent this is by getting a backup battery system installed. This will also allow your opener to keep functioning for several hours (depending on the battery's capacity) after the power goes out. Our experts can also offer you sound advice to help you avoid any problems.
Insulation has more benefits than reducing energy costs
There are many reasons to insulate your garage door other than just lowering your energy costs and helping you maintain a desired indoor temperature. According to our experts, it could also help you prevent mold from growing inside your garage. This is because insulation can help you keep water and moisture out. Another thing insulation can do is to keep pests at bay.
Lubricate and clean the moving parts of your garage door regularly
Garage doors need to be checked regularly to ensure they are in a proper working condition. Operating a malfunctioning door can result in a serious injury. Regular lubrication maintenance will help you keep the door's moving parts running smoothly. Cleaning dirt off the rollers and the hinges, as well as the springs and the tracks can also help you prevent a lot of potential issues.
