Garage Door Operators, Manual Or Automatic?
A garage door operator is the mechanism used to open the door. Either manual or automatic, the type of garage door operator you use will have a distinct effect on how your garage door works.
Like mentioned, a garage door operator can be manual (opened and closed physically by hand) or automatic (opened using remote control functionality). While it may be obvious that automatic is better, this is not always the case.
Some garages are best suited for a manual operating mechanism. This can be due to the placement of a garage door on a property, the weather patterns of the area or the type of garage door used.
This does not discredit automatic doors though. The ability to open your garage from the seat of your car, with the easy press of a button is a simple luxury. Automatic doors are a common choice for families and home owners for these reasons.
