Who doesn’t like to have easy access to their garage? After a long day of work, the last thing you want to do is manually open your heavy garage door. Here in South Florida, many people park in their garages to protect their vehicles (and themselves!) from getting wet in the frequently occurring rain. There’s nothing like knowing you won’t get drenched because you can pull right into your home’s garage! But, that won’t happen if you have to get out of the car in order to open the garage door. Remotes and garage door openers make accessing your garage a much easier process. So, when your remote stops working, things can get a little hectic. The good news is that you can get that problem taken care of fairly easily. Whether you need your remote repaired or you’re in need of a garage remote replacement, AYS can help you!
No doubt, you’ve already thought about the benefits of having a remote-operated garage door. As we’ve already talked about, opening your garage door from the inside of your car allows you access to this area of your home without the danger of feeling the rain. And on the rare days when it’s almost too cold to be anywhere besides your warm, cozy bed, the remote can save you from having to brave the cold in order to open your garage. There’s no need to fumble around looking for your house key when your hands are numb from the cold. Instead, you can easily get into your home through the garage after you open it with the simple click of a remote button. As if this isn’t enough reason to have a garage door opener and remote, there are a few other advantages to having a remote to open your garage.
Safety is one of the many other benefits. In fact, it might actually be one of the most important benefits of using a remote rather than manually opening your garage door. There is less risk of bodily injuries since no one will need to try to physically handle the heavy door. Also, many remote-operated garage doors have sensors which stop the door from moving if someone gets to close to them. This means that you don’t have to worry about injuries if your children or your pets ever get near the door. (Of course, however, it’s still important to keep an eye on the little ones at all times when the garage door is opening and closing!) Security is another really important benefit of using a remote for your garage. If your garage opens only when prompted by a remote, thieves or ill-intended individuals won’t be able to get inside.
It’s not fun to have a broken remote. If yours has stopped working, it might be time for a garage remote replacement. Perhaps, this will give you the opportunity to upgrade the security and efficiency of your garage door. But, keep in mind that you may not actually need to replace the remote system. Although a garage remote replacement is sometimes needed, some remotes may just require repairing. In other words, sometimes you can just fix what you’ve got instead of getting something new.
