The Top Benefits of Having a Backup Battery

At Creative Door ServicesTM, we’re proud to offer you high-quality backup batteries built by Genie. This renowned manufacturer of garage door products offers a range of reliable and efficient backup batteries to cater to different needs. Here are five advantages of investing in a backup battery for your garage door.

  1. Uninterrupted access. Power disruptions can occur as a result of severe weather conditions, electrical failures, and routine maintenance work. Without a backup battery, you may find yourself unable to open and close your garage door, a major inconvenience and a potential safety concern. Backup battery systems, such as the Genie 37228R, provide reliable power in these types of situations.
  2. Enhanced safety and security. Backup batteries play an essential role in maintaining the safety and security of your home. If the power goes out, accessing your garage can be a problem. With a functional backup battery, you don’t have to resort to manual operation and the safety risks of attempting to manually lift a heavy garage door. Additionally, a powered garage door deters potential intruders.
  3. Convenience and ease of use. Genie's battery backup systems are designed to be convenient and easy for homeowners to use. You can effortlessly operate your garage door, regardless of the municipal power supply situation. This is helpful when you’re in a hurry or carrying a lot of items.

    The Genie 37228R battery backup system offers a seamless transition between power modes and is compatible with various Genie garage door opener models, ensuring a hassle-free experience.
  4. Protection for important belongings. A garage often serves as storage for valuable belongings such as vehicles, tools, and equipment. During a power outage, a garage door that can’t be opened poses a risk to the security of these items. Plus, extreme temperatures and/or prolonged exposure to the elements may damage them.

    By installing a backup battery, you can prevent such scenarios, ensuring you have access to your garage and your possessions are secure, even when the power is out.
  5. Easy installation and maintenance. Genie's backup battery systems are designed with user-friendliness in mind. They’re relatively easy to install and require minimal maintenance. The Genie 37228R, for example, features a simple plug-and-play installation process and is compatible with most Genie garage door opener models.

    Regular maintenance usually involves periodic battery checks and replacements to ensure optimal performance. But, overall, the maintenance requirements are minimal.

Investing in a backup battery for your residential garage door offers numerous benefits. Genie's range of battery backup systems provides uninterrupted access, enhances safety and security, offers convenience and ease of use, protects valuable belongings, and features straightforward installation and maintenance procedures.
