It's no secret that garage doors are quickly replacing front doors as the primary entry and exit point of a Ronkonkoma home. Having an efficient garage door opener system has many benefits. Convenience during cold weather, increased safety and prevention of entrapment, updated security features with smart technology, and less damage to the environment are just a few examples of the many advantages of a new garage door opener. Aside from improving the overall quality of your home, garage door openers are relatively inexpensive. Taking into consideration the over 1500 times a year that the average home owner opens and closes their garage doors, this small investment will basically pay for itself by saving you money on your energy bill.

Types of Garage Door Openers

Chain Drive

The chain drive is probably the most common opener. It uses a metal chain, comparable to a bicycle chain to push and pull a trolley that moves your garage door up and down. This type of opener is generally inexpensive and reliable. Due to metal rubbing together, the chain drive is known to be quite noisy and is best suited for garage doors that are detached from homes.

Belt Drive

Instead of a chain, a reinforced rubber belt is used to operate the trolley. The belts are typically made of polyurethane, fiberglass, or steel-reinforced rubber. These openers are much more quiet than chain drive openers, but are unfortunately more expensive. Whether you have a garage that is attached or detached from your home, the belt drive is a great choice.

Screw Drive

The screw drive opener uses a rotating threaded-steel rod to move the trolley. This device has fewer moving parts, making it quick in operation and low maintenance. Areas with large temperature changes have been known to mess with the function of the screw drive opener. It is noisier than a belt drive but quieter than a chain drive.

Jackshaft

This opener uses a 24-v DC motor to drive pulleys and cables, The jackshaft opener is mounted beside the garage door as oppose to on top of it, leaving your ceiling free for overhead storage. It is durable and quiet but, the most expensive type of garage door opener.

Direct Drive

This system uses the motor itself to operate garage doors. With only one moving part, the direct drive is the lowest maintenance opener. They are mid range in pricing compared to the others and usually come with lifetime warranties.
