Selecting the Best Garage Door Opener for your Garage Doors



Opener to a garage door is like engine to a car. The whole system runs on it. You need to buy this essential part of your doors very carefully. Let’s see what makes these openers a perfect choice.


·         Power
While selecting an opener, the most important factor to be kept in the mind is the power requirement. It depends entirely on the weight and height of your doors. If all the other things are perfect and only the power factor is not appropriate, you may have to look for yet another opener soon.

·         Quite Functioning
If you don’t want to disturb your family while sleeping, studying or watching television; you must ensure that the opener doesn’t make much sound while operating. This is to be noticed even more cautiously if your garage is adjacent to bedroom, study room or any other living area of the home. Basically the noise level depends on the kind of drive used in it. Let’s discuss all those kinds one by one.

Belt Drives- It’s the most commonly found drive. Openers with belt drives operate very quietly. These drives are suitable for almost all types of doors and the best feature is that these start off very slowly with lets the door run for long years. Moreover, these are equipped with a hi-tech monitoring system which takes safety offered by the doors to the next level.

Screw Drives- Screw drives are a bit noisier than the belt ones as they feature a metal rod. This rod is having a few moving parts which require periodic maintenance. The power offered by the openers with these drives vary from model to model.

Chain Drives- These drives use a metal chain, almost like the chains fitted in bicycles, which makes them quite noisy. But these are still very popular as these are way cheaper than belt and screw drives. It depends on you that whether you can bear a little noise to save money or not.

·         Safety and security
Accidents caused by garage doors can cause big harms to people and property. So it’s better to buy openers which offer good safety features. Moreover, select an opener with rolling access code security so that nobody knows the code except you.

However, whichever opener you buy, you must get it serviced regularly so that you don’t have to pay for garage door repairs every now and then.
