Garage Door Battery Backups have Become More Important than Ever
As our power grid becomes less reliable with each passing year, garage door battery backups are becoming more important than ever.
In this electronic age, we increasingly rely on dependable power sources. Most of us require electricity to do our jobs. In the case of garage doors, we need power in order to get to our jobs. Our garage doors must operate flawlessly, day in and day out. Electrical outages trap us by making it difficult or impossible to simply get in the car, start the engine, and drive away. It’s a helpless feeling.
GDI Door frequently receives calls from frantic homeowners who are unable to leave for work or any other important destination because their garage door cannot be opened. Fortunately, there is an affordable solution: battery backups that open your garage door when the power goes out. These devices offer peace of mind.
Why We Recommend Garage Door Battery Backups
These are the reasons why GDI Door, the garage door specialist who has been serving Bay Area homeowners and businesses for nearly 40 years, suggests installation of a battery backup for your opener:
- Power outages. Widespread electricity failures happen without warning and can occur for many reasons: High winds or lightning can damage electric lines. Power stations and distribution systems can also experience myriad problems. In addition to power outages that are system-wide, fire, flooding, or short circuits can halt power in your home or office. Prepare for any outage, regardless of the source, with a battery backup, so your garage door remains operable when the power goes out.
- Installation is fast and easy. Our technicians can quickly replace your existing opener with an upgraded one that features a battery backup system. There’s no need to replace the door itself. A typical switch takes less than 30 minutes, so there is no disruption to your schedule.
- Reasonable cost. GDI Door offers garage door openers for a variety of budgets. This complete garage door upgrade includes a battery backup, super-quiet motor, whole-garage lighting and smart-phone accessible technology at an affordable price.
- Hassle-free technology. Once your battery backup system is in place, you can be confident it will work when you need it. Unlike a smart phone that needs recharging, the garage door battery is automatically charged when the power is on.
Your single maintenance obligation is minor. Periodically, you must change the battery in your backup system. Luckily, today’s batteries have a long life – most will easily last five years or more. When the battery finally does fail, you will hear a beeping sound coming from the opener. Purchase a new battery at any home improvement or hardware store and they are simple to replace.
