The choice of a new opener should depend on the priorities of the user. Belt drive units are the least noisy while screw drive ones are the quickest to open the door. The chain drive systems are considered to be the most durable. The motor horsepower must be based on the weight of the door. Otherwise, the electric operator won’t work properly. The installation work begins with mounting the motor unit on the ceiling. Ideally, the mounting brackets will absorb the vibration to reduce the noise. The rail is extended from the unit to the wall above the door. The belt, steel rod or chain is set inside depending on the type of garage door opener installed. The drive is connected to the trolley. A moving arm links the trolley to the door. Emergency release handle is also set into place.
Modern openers come with a receiver and one or more transmitters popularly known as remote controls or clickers. When the remote is in the range of the receiver and you push the button, a signal is sent. The receiver picks up the signal and transfers it to the circuit board to start the opener. Modern transmitters usually have dual or triple frequency operation. This practically eliminates the risk of the signal being blocked due to interference. The wireless keypad works in the same way as the remotes. The only difference is that it is fixed to the wall outside of the garage. Clickers usually work well with the most common problem being drained batteries. If a remote is lost, reprogramming is required to keep the system secure.Back To Our Services
