Bulbs shake a lot when the garage door is being used and in time the bulbs will break or short out, do not use any average bulb! There is a special heavy duty light bulb that most bulb companies make that is for garage door applications. Replace the bulb when you see its brightness starting to fade. So here is a company who generally re-invented new LED Light Bulb that will last longer.
“The Genie Company Reinvents the Light Bulb with New LED Bulb for Garage Door Openers. The Genie LED light bulb addresses the issue with a special design that shields the transmission of its energy waves from the radio frequency that goes between the remote and opener. In effect, the bulb is radio frequency friendly – specifically designed to reduce or eliminate potential interference.”
Here is a video indicating a new LED Light Bulb was use for their Garage Door. And below are the specification of the LED Light Bulb which can give you a further information about it.
A few years ago we had a blog post explaining how LED and low energy fluorescent bulbs could cause interference with your garage door operator remotes. The problem with most of those bulbs is that they aren’t made for garage door operators and they are cheaply made. The rattling and movement of the operator can cause the internal components of those bulbs to break. When they break they will still light up but they can also transmit a frequency that blocks the radio signal being sent from the remote.
Genie has solved those problems with the new LEDB1-R Garage Door Opener LED Light Bulb. The bulb is specifically made for garage door operators and will work in almost any operator. Here are some of the specifics of the LEDB1-R:
- Brightness – 800 lumens (equivalent to 60 watts)
- Estimated Yearly Energy Cost – $1.07 per year (based on 3hrs day / .11/kWh)
- Life – 22.8 years (based on 3 hours/day)
- Light Appearance – warm (3000 k)
- Energy Used – 10 watts
- Mercury Free
The bulb puts out the equivalent to 60 watts which is plenty for most garages. It is also vibration resistant and tested to withstand temperatures up to -22F. This LED bulb is made for garage door operators will probably outlast the operator itself with a life expectancy of 22.8 years! Most garage door operators have a life expectancy of 10-15 years.
