Precision Door Service- A Name You Can Trust®
Quickly Learn Which Type Of Garage Door Opener Is Best For You...
There are 3 Main Types of Openers:
Chain Driven Openers- Chain drives are slightly cheaper than belt drives. Chain drive openers tend to be noisy, so if your garage is located below or adjacent to the main rooms in your home, you don't want this opener. Chain drives run the garage door on its track by using a metal chain.
Belt Drive Openers- Belt drives run on a steel reinforced belt. They are the premium opener. Because they rely on a belt rather than a chain, they are really quiet. If your garage is attached to your home, this may be the only type of garage door opener you consider. Some belt drive openers are available with DC motors which makes them even quieter.
Screw Driven Openers- Screw drive openers run on a threaded steel rod, as the threaded rod spins, the door goes up or down. These openers are sold in only in geographic areas 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 will not perform well. Screw drive openers tend to be the slowest and least expensive opener you can buy.
