Unless you work in the garage door industry, it can be confusing to understand all individual components of a garage door and how they work together. Apart from the garage door itself, a garage door opener is another key component as it is part of every modern garage. But what is a garage door opener?

What is a Garage Door Opener?

A garage door opener is an electrical device that opens and closes your garage door via a remote or wall button. A garage door opener also assists in the smooth and quiet operation of your garage door.
