Garage Door Opener
The garage door opener is a very vital part of your garage. When it stops working, so does the ability to open and shut the garage door. The actual garage door opener is not the wall mount or the button you push to close and open the garage.
The opener is motorized and its location is on the ceiling where you see the plug in. When the remote is activated it will start the door moving up or down. Having your garage door opener working correctly is essential to using your garage door, If you are experiencing any problems give us a call.
Many Types Of Garage Doors Openers
There are four different types of garage door openers. With this company nothing takes us by surprise, our technicians are highly trained to work on any part that exist on a garage door. We have access to any type of opener you would like to purchase.
Openers are of course necessary on a automatic garage door. We want you to have the best top brand there is for a opener. Thats is why we stock our warehouse with top brands for all the parts and equipment needed for your garage door including openers. Below I have added the different types of openers available:
A belt drive provides with you the same service as the chain drive openers except this one is more quiet, using a belt to help move the door up and down. If you work night shift and would like to come home without waking up the family the belt drive is a better opener to go for. These openers provide speed but at a quieter level.
The most basic opener is the chain drive. While they are noisy, they are common among buyers. They are maneuvered by a trolley pulling the chains along the track. Having the chain drive is a noisier way to go but they are great homes and businesses. The chain drive is a great product it is low cost and budget friendly.
The screw drive is different from the chain and belt drive by performing its job differently. Screw drive opener operates with a trolley, like the belt and chain drive but also with a threaded steel rod. The threaded steel rod works together with the trolley to open the garage door by pulling it up to open and closing by pushing it. The screw drive opener works best with larger doors that need that power to open them.
This opener is not like the others, it does do the same job. The jackshaft is mounted to the mall instead of the ceiling. If your garage is built with a very tall roof then this is the opener we recommend.
The Jackshaft would be great for those commercial doors that are really tall even some as tall as 14 feet. Maybe you enjoy more space or would like a great storage building whatever the case may be the high ceilings call for the jackshaft opener. Call us to see if the jackshaft is right for you.

Garage Door Opener Frequencies
The frequency of a garage door opener is designed to stay between 300-400 MHz. Your garage door needs a frequency to communicate with the receiver and your transmitter to open and close the garage door. Having this frequency won't let anyone break into your garage door.
Because your frequency jumps around to get a code that both your transmitter and receiver can operate by. That code is designed specifically for your garage, no one else will have this code of course except your system. Being the frequency of 300-400 MHz, it will not cause a problem with your cell phone or anything else that is electronic and has a frequency.
Openers Have Different Parts
The opener has such a big role in the garage door, it has many different parts helping it perform exactly as it should. When owning a garage they generally get used every day. Making sure all your parts are working correctly are important to keep your garage in tune.
A Dip Switch helps your remote and opener communicate with one another so that they can work correctly. The dip switch is a circuit board that has switches on it which are programmed to use with your opener and remote. Having a dip switch makes it easier for your remote to communicate with your opener, without one your garage door would not be able to open.
The capacitor in a garage door opener is called the start or electrolytic capacitor. A capacitor will store power to send once you activate the garage door. It will store just enough power to be able to open the garage door each time.
Receivers and Transmitters
You will find the receiver inside the opener. A transmitter is your wall mount or remote. The receiver and transmitter work together to control the motor to manage the garage door.
If they do not communicate they will not work together. They must be programmed together along with the dip switch to work properly. A wall mount or remote with more than one button, each button must be programmed accordingly.
