A Variety of Garage Door Openers
There are a variety of garage door openers that are suitable for specific needs. The chain drive uses a chain that is made of metal to help with the opening and closing of the door. It is the most preferred as it is reliable, suits a variety of climates and is economical, although it can be a bit noisy.
The belt drive is a quiet opener; it is reliable and long lasting. The screw drive does not require a lot of maintenance due to its great power. It uses a lifting mechanism that operates along a rod of threaded steel. The jack shaft is the best option where a traditional opener does not fit.
The problem that is most commonly experienced in garage door opener installation is that the door reverses when closing. To avoid this, you should always check the photoelectric eyes to ensure that they are well aligned, clean and the path between them has no obstacles. Any loose wires in the photoelectric eyes and opener should be tightened.
To check if your garage door opener is safe, you should inspect the photo eyes near the bottom of each side of the garage door to confirm whether they are installed in a proper manner. It should not be higher than 6 inches off the floor. An operator without photo eyes means that the garage door opener is outdated and should be replaced with one that has got photo eyes.
A safe garage door opener will not let a door close if an object is used to block the photo eye and the close button of the garage door opener is pressed. Also, if an object is laid 1.5 inches higher on the surface in the path of the door and the close button is pressed, then the door should reverse to ensure maximum safety at home. The push button should be placed five feet above from the ground and remote controls should be kept away from children. They should also not be allowed to mess around with the garage door opener remotes, or the push buttons on the wall. San Diego Garage Door Masters also extends regular garage door maintenance services for the smooth and safe operation of the garage door and the garage door opener.
