All About Garage Door Openers

Getting a garage means you can go to bed at night without thinking about leaving your car out in the open. You don’t have to think about scratches, dust, drops of dew, rain and, most importantly, presents from birds that land directly on your windshield or car roof. Within your garage, you will find your car as you left it there. Getting a garage, though, means another thing as well. It means having to open the door and shut it every time you need to go anywhere. Thankfully, garage door openers have taken care of that little problem.Checkout Titan Garage Doors Coquitlam, BC for more info.

Garage door openers are machines operated by motors that open and shut the doors in the garage. Some can be manually controlled by switches mounted within the garage and others can be operated from within the car by remote controls. The remote control can also activate the opener automatically and the door opens when your car enters the driveway, or you can open it by pressing the button on the remote.

All garage door openers work on a particular driving system that provides the mechanism by which they are controlled. There are three basic types of driving systems and before making a decision on which one to opt for, you should consider and compare all three of these.

By raising it, a metal chain operates the opening and closing of the door in a chain drive system. Chain-operated garage door openers, however, are very noisy and can make a lot of rackets as you open and close the door. Belt-powered ones are driven by flexible belts that work smoothly and do not create a lot of noise. Screw-driven openers work along a steel rod opening and closing mechanism of the third type. These can also be very loud, though, because of the metallic nature of the rod, and therefore distracting.

It is also critical that you choose the type of driving system for the garage door opener according to the garage location. Even a noisy opener would not be a bad idea if the garage is situated away from the bedrooms or the master bedroom. However, you can go for the least noisy ones to save yourself and your family the noise if your bedroom is above or adjacent to the garage.

Motors with different power ranges are operated by these door openers. By testing its lifting speed and the electrical power it absorbs, you can conduct research on the type of motor you want. In the event of a power outage, most motors have a battery operated backup. You wouldn’t have to think about getting the door stuck in the middle of the road or not being able to open it at all.
