Choosing a Residential Garage Door OpenerSeveral factors will influence your choice of residential garage door opener. Here’s a brief guide to some of them:
- Drive type: We sell chain drive, belt drive and direct drive garage door openers. Chain drive products are the most economical, but can be noisy. Belt drive systems are quieter and have fewer moving parts, which means less maintenance. Direct drive systems feature a self-contained motor that delivers quiet performance and excellent reliability, but costs more to install initially.
- Power rating: Residential garage door openers are rated in horsepower. Single-car garages usually only need a ½ horsepower opener. Larger garages or those with wooden or other specialty doors will require a more powerful system.
- Options: Residential garage door opener technology has advanced considerably in the past decade. If your opener is more than ten years old, upgrading to a newer unit lets you take advantage of features such as Wi-Fi and smart home connectivity, automation capabilities and more.
