If something is off with any of these openers, give us a call, and we’ll send one of your technicians to you as soon as possible. Take a look at how you can stay on top of maintaining your opener.
Chain-Drive Garage Door Openers
As their name implies, chain-drive garage door openers use a metal chain mechanism to open and close a garage door. This mechanism makes chain-drive openers ideal for particularly heavy garage doors. They’re also inexpensive, easy to find, and highly durable. However, if you get this type of garage door opener, be prepared to potentially deal with noise coming from your garage. The best way to take care of a chain-drive garage door opener is to make sure it’s lubricated every six months. It’s also a good idea to clean it so that it doesn’t accumulate any debris.
Belt-Drive Garage Door Openers
Belt-drive garage door openers work similarly to chain-drive openers. These openers’ main advantage over their chain-drive counterparts is that they produce less noise. However, the belt will need to be replaced over time after it’s worn out. Keep the belt drive clean to get the most use out of this opener.
Screw-Drive Garage Door Openers
Screw-drive openers are not as common as belt-drive or chain-drive openers. These openers use a rotating bar to open and close the garage door. These openers can work with heavy doors and operate quietly. They also don’t require as much adjusting as belt-drive and chain-drive garage door openers. Taking care of a screw-drive garage door opener also involves lubricating the drive every six months to ensure smooth operation. That said, if you live somewhere that experiences dramatic temperature changes, you’ll experience more challenges with this kind of opener than you would with a chain-drive or belt-drive garage door opener.
Smart Garage Door Openers
Smart garage door openers refer to any automatic garage door system that utilizes smart technology. This can mean connecting your garage door opener to an app on your phone or making it a smart home security system component. If you are interested in upgrading to a smart garage door opener system, our technicians and consultants will be more than happy to help you.
Wall-Mounted Garage Door Openers
Most garage door openers are installed from the ceiling. However, there is also the option to go with a wall-mounted garage door opener. A wall-mounted opener is usually installed either on the garage door’s interior or your garage’s wall. These openers allow for more space in your garage if you wish to use them to store items as well as your vehicles. Your ceiling can be a great candidate to hang up bikes and other items if you keep it free by installing a wall-mounted garage door opener. Contact us today for a garage door opener repair.
