An automatic garage door opener enhances your home's safety, providing secure access and lighting to your garage. We can help you find the right garage door opener for your unique needs. When deciding on a garage door opener, there are several factors to take into consideration.
A belt-drive system is the fastest-growing drive type because it's very quiet in its operation and is the smoothest drive type available. A belt-drive system is as strong as a steel-belted tire and can lift the heaviest garage doors. It's the perfect choice for replacing a noisy garage door opener and for homes with living space above or adjacent to the garage.
A chain-drive system uses a metal chain to lift the door up and down along its tracks. Chain-drive systems are the most common and usually the least expensive, but they sometimes make more noise than screw-drive or belt-drive units.
Choose a motor with power adequate to lift your door. If you have double doors, look for at least a half-horsepower motor. Even on a single door, a larger motor is likely to last longer.
Also look for a unit with soft starting and stopping that operates more quietly, with less wear and tear on the door. Higher-end openers operate more quickly, reducing the time you have to wait in the driveway. For safety's sake, the faster-opening models still close at a standard, slower speed.
Some garage door openers use a one-button remote, while other models include a remote with two or more buttons that can control multiple openers. Multiple buttons are useful if you have more than one garage bay, each with a separate door.
Some brands even offer mini remotes that are small enough to fit on a keychain. Doorbell-like buttons or keypads can be mounted to the wall - interior or exterior - near the door to allow it to be opened without a remote. Look for this as an accessory if it doesn't come as part of the standard opener kit.
Some keypads allow you to lock the door electronically for a specific amount of time, such as when you're going to be away on vacation. Another popular function is delayed closing, which is a pause between the time the button is pushed and the door is closed. You have plenty of time to exit through the door on foot instead of running through, dodging the lowering door and the electronic beams.
