  • Entry Pad: If you ever lose or forget your keys, you’ll be thankful to have a keyless entry pad. Simply enter your code to gain access to your home.
  • Reserve Battery: If you lose electrical power and your garage door opener doesn’t have a battery backup, you won’t be able to enter your garage door until the power returns.
  • Large Bulb Capacity: Garage door openers are sometimes the only source of light in a garage. Scope out garage door openers that will accommodate two light bulbs, especially if you have a bigger garage or spend a lot of time working in the garage.
  • Horsepower:  ½ horsepower openers are generally sufficient for most residential garage doors. If you have a heavier wood door or oversized door you may want to consider a ¾ horsepower opener.

Remember these four features of the best garage door openers, and you’ll be sure to find a quality device. Tracey Door Co is a small family business with over 30 years of experience.
