Checking the Electricity Supply for a New Garage Door

Electric garage doors are becoming ever more popular. Homeowners and landlords are recognising their value and time and space saving devices, as well as their additional security benefits. If you are thinking of installing one, then you should first check that the electricity supply is adequate and you will be able to wire in your new garage door. This could be an issue if there isn’t currently an electricity supply to your garage, or if you haven’t had an electric garage door previously.

Check with an installation expert, who will be able to tell you whether you can install an electric garage door at all. They can advise you on the electricity supply and if you need to get an electrician involved, you can find out more about what is needed. For most homes, it will be possible to install an electrically operated garage door, but it may take some preparation beforehand.
