Choice of Garage Door Openers

11/26/2013 Back To Blog

If you have decided to install a garage door opener to be able to remotely operate the door, then you may be surprised at the wide variety of choice which is available on the market today. There are several factors which can influence your decision and should be given careful consideration before purchasing.

Types of Driver:

Door openers usually fall into one of three types; chain, screw or belt.

  • Belt drives use a rubber belt to open and close the door. These tend to have the quietest operating function which can be an issue, if you will be using the opener late at night or early in the morning. However, these models tend to be the most expensive.
  • Chain driven models are one of the oldest types of opener. However, they continue to be immensely popular and are one of the most inexpensive types of opener available for purchase. However, chain models can be quite noisy.
  • Screw automatic models have a small number of moving parts which can be easy to install and requires considerably less maintenance than the other types of opener. So, if you are looking to install the opener yourself, unless you have a great deal of experience, you may find a screw type of automatic door opener is the best suited to your needs.

Lighting:

Various different models have different levels of lighting which operate automatically without the need to leave a light switched on. This is a great security and energy efficient feature. The majority of units support two light bulbs up to 60 watts. However, if you have a large garage or driveway, you may require additional illumination, so opt for a unit which can support 100 watt bulbs.

Extra Features:

Remote controls are standard on garage door openers, but there tends to be a choice of features that the remote can operate. The complexity of the remote can impact on the cost, but they can provide more safety and security features. These can vary from keypad entry to automatic lock out.

Considering these options will provide a shortlist of products which are best suited to your needs. If you have any queries about installing a new opener or anything else, garage door repair Duvall professionals would be able to provide expert assistance.
