Why You Should Buy a New Garage Door Opener11/29/2013 Back To Blog
There is a small percentage of population that has no reason to get electric garage door openers. If you are using your garage or storage room a couple of times a year or the place is located away from your house, then you can rely on your existing mechanism. Though, most people use garage doors much more often they even use their front doors and, therefore, it is wise to have the appropriate equipment that will allow them to move fast and with safety.
Does it matter what type of opener will I buy?
There are three different types, which can facilitate all needs and requirements. The most popular one is the chain drive garage door opener because it is cheap and some people want their door to be noisy because they can keep track of what time their son returned from the party or if someone is trying to break in. This type is reliable and only needs lubrication maintenance once in a while.
Of course, if you cannot stand the noise, but you cannot afford the belt drive opener there is also the third option, which is the screw drive motor that is more silent than the chain. These choices are ideal for those whose bedroom is situated right above the garage or use the garage as an office and prefer complete silence.
Make sure to fit the bike as well as the car
- Let the garage breathe by getting rid of the useless things, which limit down the space needed for the vehicles and may obstruct the procedures of the garage door service.
- Get powerful openers keeping your mind on your future needs; for example, if you are starting your family today or planning to get bigger or more cars and expand your garage, you will be obliged to do garage door panel replacement and, therefore, an opener with reinforced horsepower will come in handy.
Does the opener remind you of a Christmas tree?
It must remind you a Christmas tree because they must have as many safety features as possible. It's nice to have a good garage opener remote, but good sensors that could stop the door from collapsing on your head or open it in case of fire will be useful, too.
