Why Garage Door Opener Backup Batteries Are Great

Imagine the following scenario: it’s the middle of summer and storming so badly one night that the power goes out. You want to go seek refuge in an air conditioned restaurant or friend’s house—but you can’t get your car outside because the garage door can’t open!

Although these situations don’t come up all that often (luckily), when they do, they’re really frustrating because they leave you stranded and helpless. But an emergency garage door opener backup battery can solve this problem!

Battery backups for garage doors have actually become very popular over the past couple of years. Spending the extra coin on a garage door battery backup system is worth it—these systems:

  • Prevent you from leaving your car outside in the snow (nobody likes having to scrape snow and ice off their cars the morning after a snowstorm!)
  • Prevent you from being stranded in an uncomfortable home—one that’s stifling in the summer and cold in the winter when the power is out
  • Keep you from having to sprint from the car in the driveway to the front door in the pouring rain during a power outage

Again, these situations don’t arise often but they are extreme enough that many homeowners take the necessary steps to avoid them altogether. If you want a garage door opener backup battery, good news—Overhead Door recently added a new accessory to the residential opener collection, the Battery Back-up. It provides homeowners with consistently reliable garage door operation, even during severe thunderstorms, inclement weather and power outages.
