You should consider a few things before purchasing the garage door opener!

What horsepower garage door opener should you buy?

Well the answer is any horsepower should operate your garage door since your garage door spring carries the weight of the door. The opener only operates your door for your convenience.

What is the smart garage door opener?

The smart garage doors have an extra feature that makes you able to operate and monitor your garage door from your smartphone device anywhere in the world. Just download the MyQ or Aladdin Garage Door Opener app and this will enable the opening or closing of the door via a smartphone or a tablet.

Which type of opener is better?

Jackshaft (Wall mounted) Openers

Jackshaft garage door openers are the most recent residential style that will be installed on the side of the garage door leaving the area above the door clear. LiftMaster wall-mount garage door openers mount on the wall next to the garage door, freeing up the space overhead and opening up the possibilities to maximize your garage space. These garage door openers have cable tension monitors for extra safety and will stop working if springs break or the door is off the track and won’t damage your door. Wall mount design frees up ceiling space in your garage, reduces noise and vibration.

Belt Drive openers

The best choice if you want a reliable and quiet garage door opener. Belt drive garage door openers are ultra-strong and virtually silent, making them ideal for homes with attached garages. Typically costs a few dollars more than a chain driven system but it operates the door quietly. If you have a room connected to your garage or you have a room above your garage, the belt drives are the best smart choice.

Chain Drive openers

Chain drives are a very reliable type of garage door opener, run by metal chains. Reliable and powerful, Chain drive garage door openers are built to handle heavy and frequently used doors with ease, day in and day out. Chain drives are slightly cheaper than belt drives but more noisier than belt drivers.

Screw Drive openers

Screw drive garage door openers are the most powerful with the fastest operating speeds. The screw drive system opener is a drive system that transfers more power to lift the door from the motor without using a gear reduction system like chain drive or belt drive.
