Still struggling to open your garage door by hand? It may be time to switch to electric. Automatic garage doors that open at the push of the button are not only more convenient; they’re also safer.

The Modern Garage Door

Electric garage doors have been around since the 1920s. They’ve been popular since the 1940s. These days, most garage doors come equipped with an automatic gate opener—an electric device that’s typically attached to the ceiling and operated by a remote control.

Not all homes are electric-powered, though. Some older homes still feature manual doors. Let’s say you’re one of the few who has been content, thus far, with a pull-down door. How do you know if it’s time to switch?

Manual Garage Doors vs. Electric Garage Doors

For most people, the decision comes down to two things: convenience and safety. It’s a pain to get out of your car every time you want to enter or leave your garage. After jumping out and walking up the driveway, you then have to physically pull the door up or down.

That takes time. It takes strength. It’s a hassle.

It can also be dangerous. Many people have injured their backs while pulling a heavy door up or down. Finally, electric garage doors often feature additional safety components—for example, sensors that stop the door when it detects an object such as a cat or a child.

In the end, it’s an easy choice. Electric door openers are faster, safer, and more manageable.
