Garage Door Opener Replacement

Perfect Solutions Garage Door understands that your opener is much more than a convenience. It enhances your family’s and home’s protection. It is extremely frustrating when a garage door opener goes on the fritz. The results are usually people late for work, meetings and school.

Garage door openers are available in a range of prices with a variety of features. Before perusing those considerations, you must decide which of the two basic types of openers your home needs. These are chain driven and belt driven; however, jackshaft and direct drive openers are fairly recent developments.

Chain Driven Opener Replacement

The chain driven models, of course, are designed with a chain which somewhat resembles that of a bicycle. This chain pulls or pushes a carriage, sometime called a trolley, which is connected to a bar made of metal. The bar is referred to as a J arm and attaches to your garage door.

This produces a certain amount of noise and may not be the best option for a garage that is built under your bedroom. Newer types of chain driven openers are generally powered by DC motors and feature soft open and close technology. This makes them a bit quieter than their older predecessors.

Belt Driven Opener Replacement

Belt driven openers are designed similar to the chain driven versions; however, a belt, as

opposed to a chain, pulls and/or pushes the trolley. These opener belts are created from fiberglass, steel reinforced rubber, or polyurethane. While belt driven garage door openers are much quieter when in operation, they also cost a bit more.

Jackshaft Opener Replacement

Jackshaft garage door openers mount differently than other systems. It is affixed to the wall alongside the garage door. It is powered by a DC motor which drives the cables and pulleys. This rotates the torsion bar to operate the door. Jackshaft garage door openers are probably the most expensive type; however, it is also one of the quietest.

Direct Drive Opener Replacement

Many home owners say that direct drive garage door openers are whisper quiet. It is designed with only a single moving component which is the motor. This type of opener was developed in Germany and is also manufactured there. The motor moves on a chain which is stationary. The chain is implanted in a rail that is overhead. Direct drive and belt drive openers are generally available for around the same price.

Opener Features

All garage door openers are required by federal mandate to feature a safety reversal mechanism. If the door encounters any obstacle, it should automatically stop and reverse operation directions. Garage door openers may also feature an electric eye or infrared beam. It too is designed to stop and revers, if an object interrupts the beam.
