Garage Door Opener Lightning Damage

Summer is a fun season—the pool is open, the weather is warm and it’s primetime for vacation! But summer also brings severe storms that can be extremely destructive. Homes are struck by lightning every year—and this can, unfortunately, damage electronics such as garage door openers.

Lightning traveling through phone jacks, electrical outlets, etc. can damage garage door openers and short out other appliances. There is always a risk of products such as these getting damaged during thunderstorms

If you live in central Indiana and your garage door opener or garage door is damaged in any way or won’t operate after a storm, contact Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie—or keep reading to learn more about the signs of garage door opener lighting damage and how to prevent it!

How Can You Tell if Your Opener Is Damaged?

There are a few signs that indicate your garage door opener may be damaged by lightning. Call the team at Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie if:

  • Your garage door opener is not functioning reliably
  • The garage door remote and keypad have stopped working
  • The LED lights on the safety sensors are not lit
  • The garage door opener doesn’t operate even if there is power going to the outlet
  • The light on the back of the circuit board is continuously flashing

How Can You Protect Your Opener from Lightning Damage?

A surge protector for your garage door opener can help protect it from lightning damage. Surge protectors plug directly into an outlet and work by limiting the voltage supplied to electronic devices by blocking or shorting unwanted voltages above a safe threshold. Surge protectors are a cost-effective way to help ensure your garage door is at a lower risk of damage during storms.
