- Electronic keypad
- Slide the door up and down manually
Either way, you will have to get out of your vehicle to open the door when you arrive home. Is that something you really want to do? Of course not.
For this reason, you always want to have at least one fully functional garage door remote. Here are three benefits:
1. Convenience. Imagine this: you arrive home on a cold, snowy night. If you don’t have a garage door opener, you will have to exit your vehicle, open the door, and then get back inside your car. Talk about inconvenient!
2. Safety. With a garage door remote opener, safety is never a concern. The same cannot be said if just anybody is able to lift the door from the outside. Do you really want to take that risk?
3. Affordable. For one reason or the next, there is a myth that replacement garage door openers cost an arm and a leg. This is definitely not true. In fact, you may find these to be so affordable that you purchase more than one.
Tip: just because your garage door remote is no longer working doesn’t mean it is permanently broke. You may need to simply replace the battery.
If you find yourself in need of a garage door opener remote, be sure to call a professional sooner rather than later. This will give you added convenience and improved safety.
