Are you thinking about updating your garage door opener? Perhaps it’s not as reliable as it used to be, and you keep having to call to get it repaired. Perhaps it’s just old, out of warranty, and would give you peace of mind to know that you have a garage door opener in optimal condition. Or maybe your garage door opener has stopped working entirely, forcing your hand so you’ll have to purchase a new one now.

Whatever the case may be, we at Carroll Garage Doors have plenty of high quality garage door openers that are ideal for all kinds of homes, according to your preferences. There are so many cool features of modern 2019 garage door openers that you may not be aware of yet, so start the process of upgrading today by giving Carroll Garage Doors a call at 1-888-578-2360 . We would be happy to ask you some questions to determine your preferences, evaluate your garage door, and give you some expert recommendations if you’re not sure which kind of garage door opener would be best for you.
There are three sizes of garage door openers: one-third, one-half, and three-quarter horsepower. Which one would be best for your garage door depends on its size, construction material, and the number of doors you’re trying to lift with the opener. For double garage doors, you’ll need at least one half horsepower, but single doors can get by with one-third horsepower garage door openers. We recommend that homeowners invest in garage door openers with more horsepower than they really need so that the mechanism will experience less stress, and therefore, last much longer.
Garage door opener styles
In 2019, homeowners can choose from various types of drive systems – belt, chain, and screw drive. Belt drive is the premium option because it’s the most expensive, but also the quietest. It uses a rubber belt system, usually made with fiberglass, Kevlar polymer, or steel-reinforced rubber to rise and lower the garage door. Chain and screw drive openers are more affordable but not as quiet as belt models. If someone spends time or sleeps in a space above or right next to the garage, investing in a belt garage door opener would definitely be a wise investment and worth the extra cost.
Let there be light?
One feature that some homeowners might not be aware of is that some garage door openers come with security lights. Most garage door openers come with two remotes and one keypad, and some come with security lights. These lights illuminate the interior of the garage when you pull your vehicle in, and usually stay on for about 30-60 seconds after the garage door closes. When selecting a garage door opener, it’s a good idea to choose one with security lights.
