Whether an automatic opening garage door is something that you’ve been wanting to add to your home or not, you can’t deny that it’s a device that would bring extreme convenience to your life. An automatic opening garage door is something that may not seem like it adds much, but this little luxury can bring in a multitude of benefits. In this blog post, we will be going over some of the benefits that having an automatic garage door opener can bring. Keep reading to learn more! 

 

Convenience 

Just as we mentioned above, the addition of an automatic garage door adds so much convenience to your life. Instead of having to get out of the car, go open the garage door manually, get back in the car, and then drive into park it, you can just stay in your car and watch the door open and close itself. Yes, having to open the door manually may not sound like a burden, but having to do this every single day or every single time you drive around can be very annoying. It’s also a great convenience if you have children or pets that may have to stay in the car while you go to open it. Instead, you can just stay in the car comfortably with your companions and not have to worry if they’re going to get out of the car and put themselves in an unsafe position.

 

Lighting 

Modern automatic garage door openers are available with built-in lights that help illuminate your garage or the path to your garage. Having that extra light can be extremely valuable at all times, whether its night time or not. It can also be helpful in cases of bad weather, specifically if its raining or cloudy outside. Lighting can also be a safety feature. If you have a garage where you’re storing various items or may have things that you could trip on, keep that space illuminated so that you’re safe.

 

Security 

Your garage door is essentially another door that leads to the inside of your home. If you have a manual opening garage door, that garage door can easily be opened by just anyone. This then leads all of your belongings, both in the garage and in your home susceptible to potential thieves and other types of damage. 

 

Many garage door features have various modes that they can be put into, in order to add more security. If you’re on vacation, your remote may have a “vacation mode” or “travel mode” which then disables the remote controls. This means that the garage can only be opened from the inside, which protects all of your belongings.  

 

Safety

Safety is a huge benefit of having an automatic garage door opener. If you have young children, the risk of having the garage door closed on a finger or on their body can pose a huge threat to their overall safety and wellbeing. All garage door openers have sensors that can detect any figure of person in the way of the closing door. So, you’ll be able to have your children or pets around the garage door without having to worry that the door will come crashing down. 

If you’re someone who has struggled with joint pain or arthritis, this can also be a great help. If you have elderly family members who may not be able to lift as much weight anymore, this addition can become not only convenient but life-changing. 

 

Saved Time

Just as we mentioned, automatic closing means that you won’t need to get out of your car to open and close the door. This can be a huge time saver. Picture this: You’re already running late to work and feeling a bit stressed about it. You jump out of the car to close your garage door and in the rush, you accidentally spill your coffee. Your late, leg is burned, and you’re now even angier from the current events that have just taken place and you still haven’t closed the garage door. Instead of having to go through all of this, because your garage door does not open and close automatically, save yourself the time by investing in an automatic garage door opener. 

 

Low Energy Use 

While an automatic garage door opener may seem like an advanced technical aspect, they don’t need much power and energy to work. This can make them a great asset since they are so cost-effective to run and maintain.
