Your Door's Personal Engine
So what exactly is a garage door opener? It is a motorized unit that actively functions as the engine of your door system. It is what allows your door to open and close automatically, without you exerting any physical effort greater than pushing a button. Although there are a few different types, the most common ones are the following three:
The Belt Drive
These units operate similarly to a conveyer belt, by employing a sturdy rubber belt as part of its pulley system. This type is often preferred for its relatively silent operation, although belt-drive openers do tend to be more expensive than the other main types.
Screw Drive Units
Openers of this type use a direct connection to the door, as opposed to a belt or a chain. This means they are comprised of very few moving parts, and therefore require less maintenance.
Chain Drive Openers
Chain drive units are the cheapest type of door opener available on the market. They are also the loudest. They operate in a similar way to the belt-drive units, except they use a chain instead of a belt. They are very strong, and can usually power heavier doors, however, they also require much more frequent maintenance.
Regular Maintenance Is Crucial
Aside from the drive system of your opener, which will determine how often adjustment or lubrication is required, there are other parts of the opener that can break down. The motor gears can wear out or break, which will render your door inoperable. The interior circuit board can also suffer from a variety of malfunctions, and if it gets fried it could prevent you from being able to use your opener at all. Our technicians can repair these components or replace them, and during our regular maintenance appointments, they'll perform a thorough inspection of every part of your opener and make sure the gears and the electrical circuitry are in a good working condition.
