Garage Door Openers



< Back

Most homes have automatic garage door openers to simplify the process of opening and closing the door. With the push of a button, the door will open or close on demand making it possible to drive in or out of the garage without the need to exit the car and operate the door manually. Homeowners do not have to strain against the weight of the door and risk injury. Most openers are rated for several thousand cycles but the wear and tear of daily use can take its toll and eventually the device may break down. If this happens to you, the knowledgeable technicians at Garage Door Repair Dallas can repair or replace your garage door opener for an affordable price. Most people mistakenly believe that the opener provides the lifting power for the door. The counterbalance springs are actually responsible for the heavy lifting. The opener is responsible for how far the door closes and opens.

Chain Drive Garage Door Opener ' Cheaper Than Most

A chain drive garage door opener is typically the least expensive and therefore, the most common for residential use. This type of system has a chain running on a rail. The chain drive is part of a system consisting of balanced pins, rollers and gears. If the power goes out, manual operation is still possible.

Instead of using a chain, a belt drive garage door opener has a steel-enforced rubber belt running along the rail. This offer smooth operation and is less noisy than a chain drive opener. You will pay more for this type of opener but it is durable and the quiet operation will be appreciated if the home has a bedroom above the garage.
