    Garage door openers don't work in winter
    Hello, our Overhead Door openers don't work well or at all in the winter. We've replaced the batteries. They work when we are inside the garage... but not from the outside. The colder the weather the less they seem to work.

    Try using Lithium batteries, they hold their power much better in cold weather
