Quickly Learn Which Garage Door Opener Is Best For You...
There are 3 Main Types of Openers:
Chain Driven Openers- Chain drives are commonly used and very reliable. This drive runs the garage door on its track by using a metal chain. Chain drives are slightly cheaper than belt drives. but make a lot much louder. If your garage is attached to your home, you may not want this opener. We typically don't recommend these types of openers because the small saving isn't worth it.
Belt-Driven Openers- Belt drives are regarded in the garage door industry as the best type of opener and their popularity is growing. Not only are belt drives as reliable as chain drives, but they are also virtually silent. This drive runs on a steel-reinforced belt and typically costs a few dollars more than chain & screw drive openers. If your garage is attached to your home this is probably the best choice for you.
Screw Driven Openers- Screw drive openers use a lifting device that runs on a threaded steel rod, rather than a chain or a rubber belt. These openers tend to work best in locations where the weather and temperature is constant throughout the year. In areas with a wide range of temperature throughout the year, a screw drive opener is not recommended. They also are the slowest moving and noisiest of all three openers but are the least expensive.
