Before buying one however you need to be informed about all the options available. Garage Door Repair Marysville is here to educate you on different types of openers.
You can choose a garage door opener on the basis of the drive. There are three types: belt, chain and screw.
The belt-drive openers operate via a rubber belt. They are similar to the other types of garage door openers in most aspects except they are the quietest out of the three. Their noiseless feature does not disturb the household each time the garage door is opened or closed. The peace and quiet though comes at a hefty price.
The oldest type of drive is the chain and it continues to be a popular choice amongst our customers. The chain-drive garage door openers are however very noisy and should not be chosen if the garage is directly below or next to a bedroom.
The screw-drive garage door openers are in the middle ground in terms of cost and noise compared to the other two openers. The units do not have many moving parts and require minimum maintenance. The installation of a screw-drive opener is also the easiest process for our technicians.
If your garage is a standard two-car unit then it requires a garage door opener with a 0.5 horsepower. If the garage door is heavier however, a model that serves 0.75 horsepower would be the better choice. Smaller garages with light-weight doors can get away with a smaller motor. There is not much difference in the prices of different sizes of motors so you might as well buy the more powerful one.
Garage doors are generally 7 feet in height. Garage door openers can accommodate a maximum height of 7 feet 6 inches. If your garage door is taller than that then you will require an extension kit along with the opener.
It is important to decide whether you require a garage door opener with a battery backup or not. It is only available with some models but is an essential feature which will allow you to open the garage door even when there is no electrical power. This prevents getting locked out of the house in case of power failures.
The standard garage door opener comes with two remote controls which usually contain a single button to open or close the door. Remotes with more than one button and additional features are also available.
You can also have the keyless entry pad mounted outside your garage door which opens the door if you enter the correct code. This comes in handy for those who get locked out or do not want to carry a key with them at all times. Finger-print entry is also an option.
The wall-mounted control pad can also be installed inside the garage to open/close the door or turn off the lights.
