How much will it cost you when your garage door opener breaks? Protect it with a Home Warranty.
Garage door openers are a welcome perk for any home. The ease of turning into the driveway and being able to pull straight into the garage provides a sense of comfort and safety. Closing the garage door behind you without getting out of the car keeps you secure as you exit the vehicle. You can protect your sense of security and peace of mind with a home warranty with our network of Home Warranty Experts.
Coming home after a long day should be relaxing. After spending the afternoon at the office or job site, the last thing you want is to go home to a stressful situation. But what happens when you pull up to the garage and push the button on your garage door opener, only to sit and watch as nothing happens? You push the button again and again, but the door never moves.
Unfortunately, this experience is all too common.
Door or Opener?
There could be an issue with the door itself or an electrical issue such as the power being out or the cord being unplugged from the wall. Or it’s possible the circuit breaker or fuse has tripped or burnt out, leaving your garage door without the power it needs to open on command.
While these may be simple fixes such as resetting the breaker or replacing a fuse, often this is only a temporary solution. Whatever problem caused the breaker to trip or the fuse to blow will happen again and again until it is hunted down and solved.
These repairs can be costly and leave you as a homeowner stuck with the bill.
But maybe the problem isn’t the door itself, but the remote. These types of remotes see daily use, and it is easy to take for granted the ease with which they function. Like all the other items in your home, garage door openers eventually break. There are many different ways this can happen, but one thing is always the same.
They are expensive to repair or replace, with costs running up into the hundreds of dollars.
Elements of a Disaster
You could find yourself stuck outside in the driving rain of a thunderstorm or the blistering heat of an August afternoon. And what happens if your garage door is your main point of entry for the home and you don’t have a key to the other doors? You could be stuck outside for more than just a few minutes.
No one wants to start the day by running to the car in the rain. Even worse, no one wants to find out that the vehicle is stuck in the garage because the door won’t open. This setback could cause you to be late to work or the kids to be late to school.
And in addition to the car being stuck in the garage, you will be stuck with the repair bill. Garage door openers are covered with a home warranty, giving you the peace of mind, knowing you won’t end up left out in the rain.
