Choosing a Garage Door Opener


 
Home Improvement
Garage door openers are an option that many people choose for their garage doors. They make opening and closing the garage door much more convenient. However, there is more to garage door openers than you might think. There are several different types of electric opener to be aware of when selecting the best opener for your garage door.

One basic fact to be aware of is that garage door openers do not provide the force that opens and closes the door. Instead, they regulate the distance that the door moves and secure it in place once it is closed. The power actually comes from the spring system attached to the door. The electric opener allows the user to close and lock the garage door with the push of a button.

The electric motor that allows the door to move is the most complicated component of electric garage door openers. The motor hangs from the ceiling, above the door and its moving parts. Horsepower is one option to consider. If the door is small, then it follows that less horsepower is necessary. For larger and heavier doors, more horsepower may be necessary to ensure the proper operation of the door and will result in a longer lifespan for the device.

For garage door openers, AC (alternating current) and DC (direct current) are two available options. However, DC has some distinct advantages. Direct current openers, often employing a belt drive system, are significantly quieter than AC openers. Also, DC openers can be used in the event of a power outage if you have a battery backup system.

There are a few different types of electric motor system to choose from. The chain drive is exactly what it sounds like. It uses a chain to move the Garage door. They are reliable, although the movement of the chains may be loud. A belt drive uses belts, so it is much quieter, but it is also more expensive than a chain drive. Other types of motor system include the screw-drive and the residential direct drive, which is also known as a jackscrew. Screw-drive systems use a large screw to move the door, while jackscrew, on the other hand, is a smaller, more compact option.

The remote control is likely to be the part of the garage door opening system that comes to mind when you think of a garage door opener. The remote control provides ease of access, but also, security. The basic mechanism features a transmitter and a receiver. The transmitter sends a signal either to open or close the door to the receiver, which then activates the door. In early remote controls, the signal was simple, but as more people purchased garage door openers, more complexity was added to the system to prevent remotes from opening other garages and also to prevent people from intercepting the signal. Currently, remotes use a system that generates a unique signal each time the door is activated. Such a security system is almost impossible to intercept or replicate.

As you see, many options exist for anyone interested in having it installed, either for a new garage, or to replace an opener which no longer functions and cannot be repaired. Knowing what is out there will help you decide what kind of electric opener is right for your garage.

In NJ, garage door openers can give you more convenience for car storage and other items. Choose a company that can give you the right one for your home. For more information, visit http://www.aspengaragedoors.com
