The ins and outs of residential garage door openers

Most garage door openers function either with a chain drive system (like that on a bicycle) or a belt drive system (a reinforced rubber belt) to open your garage door.

While both of these systems are excellent choices and reliable, a chain drive requires a little more upkeep, as it must be lubricated every six months. The LiftMaster brand of garage door openers is trusted by our team at Doors & Things due to its reputation for reliability, durability and performance. While LiftMaster door openers are extremely reliable, there are a couple of possible problems that may arise, either due to a misalignment of the door or a blockage of the photo eye reversing system. Sometimes the problem may even be due to weak batteries in the remote control. Our team can verify your system and get it back into top shape quickly and efficiently.

The most important aspect of your garage door opener is the automatic reverse system when the door is closing. There are two security mechanisms that are associated with this. First, there is a mechanical failsafe. When the bottom of the door comes in contact with any object, it will reverse its direction to avoid an accident. Second, a photoelectric beam ensures the security of your garage door. If an object or individual breaks the beam, the door will stop its descent and reverse direction. Both mechanisms ensure that you and the door remain safe. To make sure that they function properly at all times, it is important to have them checked at least twice a year. Failure to do so (in the belief that the door can’t damage an individual or an object) means that the door opener, which can lift upwards of 100 kg (225 lbs), may also crush with the same amount of force.

Make sure that all the components of your garage door opener are well maintained to avoid emergency situations and ensure its long-term durability. For example, verify that you have an emergency battery that is well charged, because if you don’t, during a power failure you’ll have to go into your garage and pull the red emergency opening handle in order to just open or close your garage door.

Doors & Things is the Midland region’s first choice for garage door and garage door openers. The experienced staff and technicians can provide all the services you need. If necessary, they can come to your home and check for any problems, and if found, fix them quickly. If you would like your garage door and garage door opener to last a long time, our preventive maintenance program should interest you. It includes an annual inspection of your garage door system, ideal for prolonging its life.
