Having an automatic garage door opener makes sense for a variety of reasons. It will make your life much more manageable. For instance, it will make it more convenient to get in and out of your garage in bad weather without being exposed to the elements. It’s also a safety issue. By installing the Sears Silent Drive automatic garage door opener, it will give your home better safety because of the rolling code technology that prevents thieves from stealing the code to your opener and invading your home. The Silent Drive lives up to its name. Instead of the noise generated by traditional chain drive openers, the chain is encased in steel belted rubber that greatly reduces the noise normally associated with metal on metal garage door openers.
