Test the balance of your garage door
The easiest way to test the balance of your door is to use the emergency lever (usually red in color) and trying to pull the door halfway. If the door stays stationary then it is properly balanced. If not, then you must consult a professional. This must be done once every few months to ensure that your garage door is balanced and that the opener is not being strained.
Sync your smartphone
In this digital age, many garage door openers can be synced with apps that can be downloaded to your tablet or smartphone. Your mobile device of choice can then become your remote of choice for your garage door. Even more reason to ensure you keep that phone charger in your car for the ride home!
Invest in a rolling code opener
Many garage opener systems today integrate rolling code technology and this basically means that your codes won't be traceable by anyone, giving you greater protection against intruders. Whether you opt for a simple clicker or a multicode remote, remember that this new technology will help you to protect your household.
Don't ignore loud noises
Don't neglect loud noises coming from the direction of your garage door. Loud noises might be a warning sign that a serious problem is unfolding. It could simply be that the moving parts need a bit of lubrication maintenance but you won't know that until you check.
