Why Liftmaster Makes Sense for the Winter Ahead.

With the winter season is quickly approaching, now is the time to take any and all necessary precautions to prepare your home for the unpredictable weather ahead. Most homeowners will focus on areas of the home that are susceptible to cold air seeping into the house such as windows and doors. Other areas of the house that homeowners focus on are insulating pipes and caulking doorways, but one area that many homeowners fail to pay attention to is the garage door.

For a majority of families, the garage acts as the main point of entrance to the home. Hazardous weather can easily compromise the integrity of your home’s garage door, which is why it is important to invest in a garage door system that can be trusted. LiftMaster garage doors are one of the most trusted brands of professionally installed garage doors and residential garage door openers. Here are tips provided by LiftMaster that can help you keep your home warm and safe during the holiday season.

Functioning Properly

It is important that your garage door is working properly during the winter. Cold air and snow can cause significant damage to parked cars. The first place to look is the weather stripping around the garage door. Ensure that it’s keeping out cold air and replace any seal that looks damaged or that are missing. Also check and make sure that the garage door opener is working properly. LiftMaster provides a 3 step safety check that looks over major performance standards.

Connected Garage

The convenience of having a connected garage system is irreplaceable. A connected garage system allows the homeowner to open, close and operate the garage door from a separately connected device. This can be very useful if you need the ability to access your garage from a remote location, a great example is if you need to open the garage door for someone visiting when you are away from your home or in the event of forgetting to close the garage door.

Second Option

Winter weather also brings other challenges that’s difficult to plan for such as power outages and electrical issues. LiftMaster provides options for a secondary power source to operate garage door operating systems without having access to main power supply.

Time for Replacement

Operating issues should be expected for older garage door systems, especially during the winter season. Metal components on garage doors can contract during colder weather, leading to other operating issues such as broken springs. A garage door expert should be consulted for an inspection of older garage doors or a full replacement is recommended.
