Looking for professional advice? Then the following tips can help you. Check them out to learn some useful information that can help you get the most out of your garage door.
Learn About Your Emergency Release Feature
This is a crucial aspect of garage door safety, so it’s vital you understand how to use it properly. It’s usually presented in the form of a ripcord with a red handle, which can be pulled to release the motor from the door. It is an essential feature if something malfunctions, while allowing you to open the door manually when you need to. Establish confidence with this feature and you’ll improve your safety.
Don't forget to check the batteries
This may sound simple and even silly, but a lot of people forget to do this when they suddenly discover that their garage door opener isn't working. If you try to use your remote control but nothing seems to happen, before you panic or get mad, make sure its batteries aren't dead. A simple check can save you a lot of headaches and time. If the problem isn't with the batteries, don't hesitate to give our experts a call.
Check your safety sensors often
Your opener has special features set in place to ensure it doesn't close the door while something is blocking its path. These features, however, can malfunction, so you'll need to check their functionality every now and then just to be safe. If the sensors are misaligned or faulty, they may also cause your door to keep reversing every time you try to close it. To test the photo eyes, wave a broomstick between them while the door is trying to close. If the system doesn't reverse, you need to have the sensors checked by professionals as soon as possible.
