Have you ever come home or pulled up to your shop and everything is dark, and even the street lamps and the neighboring homes or businesses are pitch black? Have you tried to leave for work in the morning, but your garage door won’t open and you can’t get out? The storm that just blew through knocked the power out. Not only will you not be able to heat or cool you home or operate your business, but you won’t even be able to get in or out of your garage.
Emergency Overhead Door Accessories
With a battery back-up garage door accessory, you can avoid any power outage issue. A battery back-up for residential or business use will offer you the sense of security that you will always be prepared when the power is out. Power outages can happen at any time for any reason like a strong storm, extremely hot temperatures and when the power company is working on the power lines in your area. Rather than waiting until it is too late, get ahead of the storm and upgrade your garage door opener with a battery back-up accessory.
Even if it won’t be too much of a concern that you are not able to access your garage for your vehicle and can enter the house from another door, remember that the garage door is often the way your kids get into the house when they come home from school. Without a house key and when no one is home, your children would be locked out of the house if the automatic door opener isn’t operating.

Once you choose to upgrade your garage door accessories with a battery back-up system, it doesn’t take much to get it up and running and ready for any emergency situation.

Since you may rarely need an emergency battery back-up system for the overhead door at your home or business, it is likely that once you have one installed it will not be used too often. With most systems, there is a warranty for the unit and options to purchase an extended warranty if you choose.
