How Often A Garage Door Opener Remote Should Be Serviced

With the emerging technologies in every sector comes a number of challenges and our Garage Door sector is not an exemption. Since the embracing of the wireless technology to control garage doors a number of challenges have emerged, one of which this article is meant to address; garage door opener remotes.

Garage Door Remotes have become an important part of our lives as the pros of having them are handy. Once you are used to operating your garage door with a remote then the thought of having to use a wall fixed button or manual raising are skin tingling.

Considering factors like walking distance to open and close garage doors, holding and raising the doors manually or pressing a button on a wall then you realize that remotes are far more helpful but what comes of it when the garage door opener remote malfunctions?

Since the question of prevention and cure are far reached, then it is better to have some measures put in place to ensure that your remote is fully functional at all times so as not to encounter such inefficiencies. This brings us to the question of the right time to service your remote control.

Before we decide on the right time to service, let us consider the factors that lead to malfunctioning of these devices:

Low battery power

How long your battery can serve you? Low power or dead batteries is by far the main cause of garage remote control failure. Once you can come up with a time limit then the question of serving should not be of worry as you will have solved the problem of range and effectiveness of your remote control unit.

Cleanliness

Cleanliness of the IR covering on both the remote control and the receiving unit. This means a clear communication between the remote control and receiver unit, since these parts are made of plastic them cleaning them should be a quite easy job and should not even bring in the element of time as this places should always be clean. If the surfaces have been scratched or gouged then you might consider replacing before it too late.

System Resetting

Remote controls and Receivers that control garage doors are nothing but small microcomputers which can malfunction anytime without prompt warning. Such inefficiencies can be overcome by resetting these devices once in a while. i.e you can remove then place back the battery for the remote control and unplugging the receiver from power for some seconds.

Other System components

Since a garage door opener system is made up of a number of component from the door itself to the garage door drum, garage door rollers and the garage door springs the one must ensure that all this parts are fully functional. For instance the garage door weather stripping should be fully functional so as not to compromise the efficiency of the moving parts all this can be achieved by getting a good garage door installer who will offer you all this services including Garage door opener replacement services at an affordable but all round the clock service
