Various Types of Garage Door Openers

By Jack Crimmens

A garage is worth if you can access it with ease while parking your car. Most of the people avoid parking their cars in the garage because they just don’t want to get off the car to open the garage. This really is a hassle we can do without each time we want to gain access to our garage, and this may be more than once a day. If you are planning to handle this problem and avoid leaving your car on the driveway everyday then better to get a solution for your opening device.

There are several different types of garage door opener available in the market. It is often said that it is more important to look at the horse power of your opener rather than the brand as it is the horse power that will be doing the lifting, and if you have a heavy garage door, you will need horse powers. If you have multiple garage gates, then you will unfortunately have to install a separate opener for each gate.

First of all you need to determine exactly what size and weight your garage door is, and then choose the method you want for your garage door opener, this can be either a screw driver or a chain driven mechanism. In a chain mechanism the door is operated with a chain which pulls up the door while mounted against the ceiling of garage door. The chain method can be a lot cheaper than choosing a screw opener, but you need to bear in mind that a chain mechanism is also noisy.

A long rod is used in case of the screw mechanism. A screw mechanism door is a lot quieter than a chain as there is no chain involved that will crunch and grind. Most of the people prefer investing in screw mechanism due to this reason only but still it is a costly affair. In both the cases, these mechanisms come up with battery backups in case of any type of power failure.

Since the job is tricky so get in touch with a professional when you plan to install the opener in your garage. In case you are a DIY enthusiast then the task may take as long as a whole weekend. The mechanism comes with tracks that you also need to lay, this taking time. You also need to make sure that everything is fastened down properly and will not be able to move. If you choose to use the services of a professional then it will take a lot less time and you will be assured that the job has been done correctly the first time.
