Garage door opener replacement is required in various occasions. It is often demanded when the opener is damaged or old and doesn't comply with the current UL 325 safety guidelines. Opener replacement will also be needed when a new garage door is installed but its requirements in terms of its weight differ. The motor of the opener must have sufficient horsepower so that it can control the movement of the door. So, if the current motor horsepower does not suffice for the demands of a door, the opener must be replaced.
The term garage door opener replacement basically refers to the removal of the entire current opener system and the installation of a new one. Though, if only parts of the opener are damaged, they can be replaced individually. A broken chain, a worn rail or malfunctioning sensors can be independently replaced. The replacement of the damaged components or of the whole opener system is hard and must be done with attention as much as the installation of the new opener or its parts.
