The lifespan of a garage door motor depends on various factors, including usage frequency, maintenance, and the quality of the motor itself.
On average, a well-maintained garage door motor can last anywhere from 10 to 15 years. Regular maintenance can contribute to its longevity:
- lubricating moving parts,
- checking for loose connections, and
- cleaning the motor.
However, the lifespan of your garage door motor may be shortened by:
- heavy usage,
- extreme weather conditions, and
- neglecting maintenance.
High-quality motors from reputable brands often come with longer warranties and may outlast their cheaper counterparts. It’s essential to pay attention to signs of wear and tear, unusual noises, or erratic behaviour, as these could indicate potential issues that, if addressed promptly, can extend the life of your garage door motor.
