What are Garage Door Openers?
A garage door opener is a motorized device used to open and close garage doors. Most garage door openers are controlled by remote control, but some are operated by a keypad or smartphone app. Garage door openers make it easy to get in and out of your garage, even if you don’t have a key.
You get two main types of garage door openers: chain-driven and belt-driven. Chain-driven openers use a metal chain to lift the garage door, while belt-driven openers use a rubber belt. Belt-driven openers are typically quieter than chain-driven openers but are also more expensive. No matter what type of opener you have, keeping it in good working condition is essential. If your opener is not working correctly, it could cause severe damage to your garage door.
What are the Benefits of a Working Garage Door Opener?
There are many benefits to having a working garage door opener. First, it is much more convenient than manually opening and closing your garage door. A functional garage door opener will also make it easier to get in and out of your garage, especially if you have a heavy door. Additionally, a working opener will help to keep your garage cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter by sealing the space between the door and the ground. Finally, a properly functioning garage door opener can help to deter burglars and keep your home safe.
Also, if your opener is not working properly, it could cause serious damage to your garage door. For example, if the opener cannot lift the door, it could strain the springs and cause them to break. Additionally, an opener that is not functioning correctly could cause the door to come crashing down, seriously injuring anyone in the way.
What are the Most Common Garage Door Opener Problems?
There are a few different problems that can occur with garage door openers. One of the most common problems is when the opener fails to open or close the door. This can be caused by several different things, such as a broken chain or belt, a stripped gear, or a problem with the motor.
A common problem is when the opener makes a lot of noise. This can be caused by loose parts, worn out gears, or dirty chains. If your opener is making noise, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can take a look. We may be able to fix the problem without having to replace the entire opener. First, we will diagnose the problem and then provide you with a free estimate. Afterward, we will get to work fixing the problem so you can have a quiet and working opener again.
The garage door opener remote can stop working for a variety of reasons. Anything from dead batteries, interference from other electronic devices, or a problem with the receiver. If your remote stopped working, we recommend checking the batteries first. If that doesn’t solve the problem, give us a call and we will troubleshoot the issue for you.
Finally, one of the less common problems that can occur is when the garage door opener starts to work on its own. This is usually caused by a short in the wiring or a problem with the sensors. If this happens, it is important to disconnect the opener from the power source right away. Then, give us a call so we can come out and take a look. Right Choice Doors has the experience and expertise to fix any garage door opener problem, no matter how big or small.

The process of Replacing Your Garage Door Opener
