Types of Garage Door Openers
Belt drive garage door openers are the quietest on the market, and the belts are typically warrantied for life so dependability is not a problem. Warranties may depend on the manufacturer, but we’ll let you know prior to the installation. Because they are dependable and so quiet, belt drives are considered to be the “top of the line” garage door openers. The only down side is price; belt drives are a little more expensive than other types of openers.
Chain drive garage door openers are the stalwart of the industry. They are ultra reliable and less expensive than the belt drive which makes them a popular choice. Chain drive openers can be a good choice to save a little money when your garage is not attached to your home.
Screw drive garage door openers use a lifting mechanism that moves along a threaded steel rod. They are powerful units and because they have few moving parts, require little maintenance. While the performance of these machines has been improved in recent years, typically the older units are not as quiet as the belt drive units and can be affected by cold weather climates.
