LEARN MORE ABOUT GARAGE DOOR OPENER FUNCTIONALITY & SAFETY
Also known as a garage door operator, an opener is the component that connects to your garage door, usually on the ceiling of your garage. They activate a motorized system controlled by either a switch, remote, or an app. With them, you can open or close your garage door.
While the opener might seem like a small device, it actually is the motor device that controls the opening and closing of the door. While it is possible to have a garage without an opener, it makes operation significantly more convenient and safe. Manual operation of a garage door can be dangerous, inconvenient, and difficult to manage.
Hand lift garage doors statistically lead to more accidents than remote operators. While they may seem like an expensive addition, modern technology has helped reduce their costs. In addition to the actual opener, there are plenty of keypad and remote options available with Iconic. We carefully examine the brands we hold and test them to ensure the highest safety standards.
Garage door openers use radio frequencies. The opener itself has a frequency attached to the motorized system at the door. When you press the button, the frequency turns on, commanding the door to open or close.
While you cannot prevent a hacker from capturing the radio frequency of your garage door, new models of doors (as of 2013) use a different frequency every time, so even if someone pulls up to your home and waits for the door to open to duplicate the frequency, it won’t work later.
GARAGE DOOR OPENER REPAIR & REPLACEMENT
When a garage door opener breaks, it will result in the door not functioning at all. It usually has something to do with its electrical system. There might be a problem with the flow of electricity or one of its parts like the circuits. In the worst-case scenario, the motor of the opener burned out. If it’s a relatively new opener, the repair is likely the best option for it. Have one of our technicians assess the damage and provide a free estimate. Garage door opener manufacturers, like LiftMaster, recommend replacing the opener after 10 years.
Repairing an opener will likely be an electronic fix, ensuring that every connection is working smoothly. Our experienced technicians will check the motor unit and its parts and replace individual components of the opener when appropriate. Make sure to have professionals work on any repair or replacement. We have the tools and the training to ensure safety and efficiency. Garage doors are heavy and potentially dangerous if you don’t have the proper training, especially if your springs were installed incorrectly.
TYPES OF GARAGE DOOR OPENERS
Garage door openers are categorized based on the type of motor and how it moves the garage door. Here are the most common ones:
Belt DriveUses a rubber belt for operation, making the motion smooth and quiet. LiftMaster has a lifetime warranty on their belt drives.
Chain DriveThese openers use a chain that connects the motor to the door. It is the most affordable type of opener, but it can be loud.
Direct DriveDirect drive features a steel rail and a stationary chain. Its design ensures that you won’t experience much noise during movement.
Screw DriveThe noisiest of all the openers, screw drive systems use a steel rod that rotates during movement.
THINGS TO CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING A NEW GARAGE OPENER
Several factors will influence the type of garage door opener you’ll buy. Here are the main things to consider:
Openers are available in ½ or ¾ horsepower models. The one you’ll choose will depend on the door you have. If you have a single wide door, the former will work. However, if you have an oversized garage door with heavier material, you need to use ¾ horsepower.
Not all openers have a battery backup. They will cost extra, but they’re good to have as they provide power during an outage.
Again, another one that’s up to preference. If you prefer openers with less noise, invest in a belt drive.
Safety is of the utmost importance when handling openers. A mistake could lead to an injury or worse. It’s the reason we always have safety inspections included with our service. They’ll help save lives and ensure that your opener works optimally, preserving it for years to come. One of the most important things to remember is to make sure the door is balanced and running smoothly. Regardless of how nice the opener is, the opener is not designed to do the job of the spring and will break within a year if the door is not balanced.
Additionally, DC motors are more sensitive than AC motors when the door reverses after detecting an obstruction. DC uses the minimum strength that changes during the time the door is opening, so it doesn’t use unnecessary power. AC motors are going to use the strength that is required for the highest part of the opening the entire time.
A safety inspection will include many steps, such as:
- Checking sensors
- Inspecting mechanism
- Checking garage door balance
- Testing springs and pulleys
- Examining roller condition
- Inspecting fixtures and hinges
- Making sure the door is sealing outside elements properly
