How to Choose the Right Garage Door Opener

Garage door openers are as varied as garage doors themselves and as such you should take a few different factors into consideration when choosing the right opener for you. Here are three factors to keep in mind when choosing a garage door opener.

  1. Work Load- depending on the amount of times you use the opener in a day, how heavy your garage door is, and what type of elements the opener is going to be exposed to, you may need a lighter or heavier duty opener. If you are using your opener several times a day it pays to get an opener that is going to be more durable and that is going to be able to handle a heavier workload.
  2. Features- another thing to keep in mind are what type of features you need on your opener. Do you want a light, a remote, do you want a faster moving opener, etc. . These are all factors to keep in mind to make sure you get the opener that you need and want. You would be surprised how many extras something as simple as a garage door opener can have.
  3. Existing System- the last thing to keep in mind is the openers and remotes that you already have in use. Say for instance that you have a system that is already in place that has been outfitted to your doors and your garage. You may have to get a new opener that is similar or the same as the one you already have to make sure that remotes and doors are compatible.

Knowing what type of garage door opener you want and need is not as simple as you might imagine nor is it exceedingly hard. With the right information, the right questions, and a bit of time taken you can find the opener that is going to work with your garage and work with your needs as well.
