Garage door openers are convenient and will last a long time if serviced annually. There are many reasons to replace your opener even if yours is working fine. The new models are safer and provide more security and convenience. Below are some reasons as to why a new opener would be a good investment.
Starting in 1993, garage door openers have been required to be equipped with safety reversing mechanisms. These are called photo eyes which are mounted on either side of your garage door. They are designed to reverse the door immediately if any object, such as a child or pet crosses the light beam that is created by these sensors while the door is closing. If your current garage door opener is not equipped with these safety features, we highly recommend having your opener replaced as soon as possible to ensure the safety of your family and pets.
Most garage door openers that people are familiar with are chain driven. Apple Door Systems offers a belt drive model called the Vanguard . It is one of the quietest openers available and has a lifetime warranty on the motor and the belt. It is eco-friendly and has ultra-smooth and quiet operation. If you have living space around or above your garage, the Vanguard belt drive opener would be the choice for you!
There is nothing worse than having a power outage and not being able to use your garage door opener. The Vanguard belt drive door opener is conveniently available with a battery backup system that will start working immediately upon losing power.
