Garage Door OpenersBack To Our Services
Garage door openers serve the sole purpose of operating the largest moving part of your house. They need to be strong, agile and quiet. There are 3 types that make the majority of the openers in the US. Chain drive and screw drive styles used to be much more popular than belt drive, but recent technological developments have raised its standards and improved the chances of competing with the other two.
Quiet Belt Drive Openers
The main advantage of the belt drive openers over the others is its noise level. Unlike the rest of the types that have metals involved, this one operates on a material that does not give out too much noise during operation. It is especially important for families that have little kids in need of sleep, or any family that lives in a quiet neighborhood and doesn't want to wake everyone up whenever the door is operated.
The Price of Belt Drive Openers
The main disadvantage of belt drive openers has always been the price. The rubber it is made from is more expensive than the metals used in the other types. However, the modern breakthroughs have made the belt drive the most reliable type of the opener there is. It is now manufactured all over the world and can have life expectancy of 30,000 hours without the need of changing a light bulb. Hence the tremendous increase in its popularity.
