GARAGE DOOR OPENER REPLACEMENT AND REPAIR

Garage Door Opener Installation

The nucleus of any garage door system is its opener. Easily overlooked, garage door openers are highly complex pieces of equipment, often containing dozens of intricate parts that work simultaneously with one another to consistently raise and lower your door.

A garage door opener is a motorized device that is used to open and close a garage door. Garage door openers are controlled using remotes, keypads, or even smartphones. Having a garage door opener is just as important as the door itself. The ability to open your door without having to physically step out of your car is an excellent convenience in today’s society.

Garage door openers operate from a motor housed within a power unit that is attached to the garage ceiling. A drive system moves a pulley along a track when it operation. The systems are usually belt-driven, chain-driven, or screw-driven.

Drive Mechanism

There are different types of garage door openers to choose from. The three most popular are belt-driven, chain-driven, and screw-driven. Each of these differ in their features, prices, pros, and cons. All of these features are discussed below and should be taken into consideration when purchasing a garage door opener.

Belt-driven

A belt-driven opener is an average price opener. In this type of garage door opener, the motor pulls on a belt that is attached to a bar that pulls the garage door up and down.

Chain-driven

A chain-driven opener is probably the least expensive garage door opener that you can buy. In this type of garage door opener, the motor pulls on a chain that is attached to a bar that pulls the garage door up and down. This is the same as a belt opener, however, in this case it is a chain.

Screw-driven

A screw-driven opener rotates a steel rod to open or close the garage door. In a screw-driven opener, there are far fewer components than in a belt or chain-driven opener.

Garage Door Components

Remotes or keypads

One way to control the opening and closing of your garage door is by using a remote. The remotes are often handy keychain-sized controls, perfect for storing in your purse or right in your car. The remote controls are programmed using “rolling” codes. This makes it harder for thieves or burglars to get access to your security code and break in. The garage door will only function using the appropriate transmitters with assigned codes. Remote controls are included in the package when purchasing a garage door opener.

Another way to control the opening and closing of your garage door is using a keypad. This is a great way to get into the garage without having to worry about having your key or remote control. Key pads are often installed on the outside of the garage door on the wall. Keypads are controlled using a PIN number that you enter using the touchpad. You can do this to open and close the garage. You can even create temporary PINs for giving access to your repair workers, delivery men, or even neighbors, for a keyless entry. Keypads can be purchased separately from a garage door opener.

Lighting

Many garage door openers can be purchased with lighting features. The lighting features can be for security reasons or simply for light in the garage. The light is mounted right on the motor housing and will turn on when you use the opener. The light will stay on for approximately 15 to 30 seconds after the garage door is closed, but can also be turned on using a remote control or a wall-mounted switch. If your garage door opener does not come with lighting features, you can have them installed. You may need to hire an electrician for installation if the wiring is not in place.

Sensors

Garage door  sensors are safety devices that prevent the garage door from closing on people, cars, pets, or anything that may get in its way. Garage door sensors  are located at the side of the door opening and produce a beam of infrared light. If the beam that runs from one side to the other is interrupted, the door will automatically reverse before hitting the object. Garage door sensors  can be purchased separately.
