What LED Bulb Wattage Is Safe?
Your garage door opener is an expensive piece of equipment and you don’t want it to have electrical problems because you used the wrong light bulb. It is very important to note that different garage door openers can only use brands and LED bulb models that are specific to them. That is number one. Number two is that most of them use a bulb between forty and sixty watts. This is the case with most garage door openers but it doesn’t hurt to find your garage door opener manual and double check it. That is pretty much the case with anything relating to your garage door opener. Don’t cost yourself money by trying to figure it out without doing some research.
Can A Colored LED Be Used In A Garage Door Opener?
Absolutely! Just as long as it falls into line with the specs required by your garage door opener. Just remember to use a color that actually illuminates your garage at night. That is the entire point of the light in your garage door opener. A pretty color isn’t going to stop you from tripping over something in the dark.
What Are The Advantages To Using An LED Bulb?
Well first, your garage door opener is going to be used a lot. You have to figure that the light on most garage door openers comes on even during the day. That is using a decent amount of extra electricity that contributes to each electric bill. You can lessen that by using an LED bulb in your garage door opener. They also last a lot longer than old-school light bulbs. Most LED bulbs are good for a few years more than those old bulbs. LED bulbs also create considerably less heat and have no warm-up time. They light right up so you can see without the lighting playing with your vision.
