Safer and Easier

Having the ability to operate a garage door without leaving your vehicle is safer than having to exit the car to open the door and get back in the car to drive it inside. This is especially true after dark and during stormy weather. An opener also provides security against trespassers because no one can open the door without access to a remote or the code for the keypad. Chain drive garage door openers are popular because they are economical. They use a chain, which looks similar to the chain on a bicycle, to control the door's movement, so the downside is they can be noisy. Other parts include gears, rollers, and sprockets. Over time, the chain can loosen and when it contacts with the steel rail, operation is even noisier than usual. Adjusting the chain should be part of any routine maintenance program.

Belt drive openers

Belt drive openers require a larger financial investment but are less noisy because they use a reinforced steel belt in place of the chain. This is the best option if the home has a bedroom above the garage or any other living area adjacent to it.

Variety of openers

Garland Garage Door Repair stocks a variety of openers, including products made by LiftMaster and Genie, two of the most popular brand names on the market. Selecting the right opener involves matching the horsepower to the door's size and weight. Many garage doors less than 10 feet wide require a 1/3-horsepower unit If the door is made of insulated steel or wood, a '-horsepower opener is preferable to accommodate the additional weight. An opener with a '-horsepower motor is the best choice for extra wide doors.

Safety mechanisms

Door openers feature standard safety mechanisms that reduce the risk of personal injury and damage to property. An infrared beam across the door opening detects obstructions and prevents the door from closing on top of an object or person. Rolling code technology built into the remote systems reset the code with every use to prevent thieves from stealing the code. Many manufacturers offer an optional battery back-up unit. This allows the homeowner to operate the opener for dozens of cycles after a power outage.

Cables

A short cable running from the opener motor to the back-up provides the necessary charge for the battery.s Door openers require occasional maintenance to prevent premature failure. Making sure the moving parts are lubricated eliminates friction and keeps the various components in good working condition.
