Understanding Your Garage Door Opener

The heart of any garage door system is its opener. This nifty device does all the heavy lifting so you don’t have to break a sweat. There are mainly three types: chain-drive, belt-drive, and screw-drive openers. Each has its own set of pros and cons depending on noise level preference and budget.Belt-drives are whisper quiet but can hit your wallet harder than their noisier cousin, the chain-drive. Screw-drives fall somewhere in between but excel in climates that see vast temperature swings. Knowing which type you have is step one towards fixing issues when they pop up.
