Garage door openers last for around 15 years, so if your opener needs a repair and is nearing the end of its lifespan, it is probably time to replace it. You can locate the manufacturer date printed on the back of your garage door opener.
If your garage door opener was manufactured prior to 1994, we highly encourage you to replace it, since these doors lack the safety sensors that make modern garage doors much safer for kids, pets, and other objects that may be in their path.
When it comes time to replace your garage door opener, the decisions can be confusing. There are 3 main types of residential garage door openers that have slightly different functions and offer benefits that may best suit your home.
These 3 types come in a variety of models, some of which include special features like battery backups and wifi capabilities to make your life safer and easier. Wifi capabilities allow you to connect your garage door opener to your smartphone and operate it via a mobile app.
You can choose a garage door opener model with any of these upgraded features, and to help, we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you decide which type of garage door opener is best for you!
A chain drive opener uses a thick chain, like a bike chain, to open and close your garage door. If this is the product you want, Garage Door Repair Maryland team of expert technicians recommend the Liftmaster 8165 or a comparable model for the most affordable option.
However, this is a very basic garage door opener that might drive you crazy if your spouse leaves the house before you get out of bed! If you are interested in a quieter model with upgraded features, we would recommend looking into a belt drive.
A belt drive uses a rubber belt instead of a chain, so it is smoother and quieter. If this is the product you want, Garage Door Repair Maryland team of expert technicians recommend the Liftmaster 8550 as it comes with a lifetime belt/motor warranty, includes WIFI capabilities, and has a battery backup for the slight chance your power goes out!
It’s just how it sounds: instead of mounting to the ceiling, this garage door opener mounts to the wall beside the door to save space. The great part about these operators and garage door openers is that they take up less space and quieter operation than chain drive.
