Residential garage door openers – what you need to know
There are two types of garage door openers. One uses a chain drive (like on a bicycle), the other uses a belt drive (metal‑reinforced rubber).
We recommend both types of garage door openers since both offer great performance. It’s important to note that the chain drive does require lubricating twice a year to maintain it properly. At Environmental Door, we install garage door openers made by LiftMaster. In our experience, they are the most reliable and durable. With time, minor issues may arise with your opener. Most often, they are due to maintenance issues, such as an obstruction or misalignment in the reversing system’s infrared beam. Another common issue is low battery power in one of the control panels. One of our team members can troubleshoot the problem and fix it promptly to get your overhead door opener working like new again.
One of the key features of your overhead door opener is the automatic reverse mechanism. There are two important safety mechanisms that ensure everyone’s well‑being around your garage door.
The first mechanism is an infrared beam that is projected across the door’s opening. If the beam is broken as the door is lowering, the door reverses itself automatically. The second safety feature is mechanical. If the sensor located on the bottom of the door comes into contact with a person or object, the door will also reverse. It’s important that both automatic reverse mechanisms are always in good working order to prevent an injury. Don’t forget that an opener is quite powerful – if it can lift a 225‑lb overhead door, it could also push that same amount of weight to the ground.
Another important consideration is having a garage door opener with appropriate safety accessories. Backup battery power, for example, would be helpful in a power outage. Without it, your opener would not work and you would need to use the manual release handle located inside your garage to open or close your overhead door.
