Why selecting the right kind of garage door opener matters

Lots of people think they can simply pick the cheapest garage door opener and be good to go. But that’s not what we recommend based on our many decades of experience working with all kinds of garage doors and openers. Selecting the right type of drive is important to make sure your opener can handle the level of power required to open and close your garage door day-in and day-out. If you have a smaller garage door, you can get away with having a smaller amount of horsepower in the motor that drives the opener. But if your garage door is large, it’s essential that you get an opener that features a motor that can easily handle the extra requirements of a large door. If you get an opener with less horsepower, you’ll probably find that it frequently malfunctions and completely stops working rather quickly.

Safety considerations

We also recommend reviewing the safety features of the garage door opener that you’re considering purchasing. All of our garage door openers have excellent safety protocols in place. Without safety measures in place, garage doors can be extremely dangerous to small children, pets, and also adults. They’re heavy, utilize electricity, and should be taken seriously. Make sure your garage door opener has great safety features by purchasing it from Carroll Garage Doors. We’re always here to answer all your questions about your garage door opener’s safety – so don’t hesitate to ask.
