Buying a garage door opener is not as simple as it sounds. With many different openers to choose from, the best choice for your home may not be so obvious. 

Tips for Buying a Garage Door Opener

The best way to learn how to buy a garage door opener is to first know all available options. You can choose from the following:

  • Chain Drive: This is the most classic version. It’s dependable and packs a solid value. Although it’s known to be on the noisy side, it’s less expensive than a belt drive. We recommend a chain drive door opener for detached garage doors because the noise will not bother anyone in a room beside or above the garage.
  • Belt Drive: Belt drives are a quieter choice. They’re ideal if a bedroom is above your garage. They open with a rubber belt and are very low maintenance. Belt drives also come with longer warranties.
  • Wall Buttons: Wall buttons are perfect for those who prefer outdoor keypads. It also locks all outside radio signals when programmed. Another feature of wall buttons is that they are available with a timer and motion sensor. This way you can set your garage door to open and close automatically.
  • LED Lighting: Garage door openers with LED lighting can provide a daylight-like feel to your entire garage. 

Connectivity

We offer a full range of products that can help you monitor and control your garage door or gate – even if you don’t have a LiftMaster. By connecting with your smartphone, tablet or computer, staying connected and in control has never been easier.

Safety and Security 

When it comes to the safety and security of your home or business, only the best will do. When it comes to the best brands, we recommend LiftMaster because of the brand’s quality and variety of options. To us, that means getting the right equipment and having it properly installed, giving you the peace of mind that it will work how it should when you need it to.

If you’ve never thought about electric garage door openers before, here are a few important points to consider. 

Photo Eye

One of the most important features you get with electric garage door openers that you don’t get with a manual opener is the photo eye. The photo eye is a pair of sensors on either side of the garage door that is connected with a light beam. If that beam is interrupted, the door will not close. This protects you from having the garage door slam down on something in its way, like your car, or even worse, you or a member of your family. The value of this safety feature alone is worth installing an electric garage door opener system. 

Keypad Entry 

The ease of remote and keypad entry is another big advantage of electric garage door opener systems. No need to get out of your car, fumble with a key and strain to lift the door all the way up. With an electric system, just press the button on the remote or type in the keycode and you’re done. No keys to lose or share.

If you have a manually locking garage door that is compromised by a break-in, you need to call a locksmith to install a whole new lock. If your keycode is compromised, you can just set a new one.

Some systems even allow you to set a temporary keycode so guests can get in once without having unlimited access to your home.

Illuminated Garage

An electronic garage door opener system also will often have a light that automatically goes on when you activate it to open the door. This makes it easier to get into your home at night and may deter potential burglars.
