How to Choose the Best Garage Door Opener

If you’re looking for a new garage door opener, the number of choices out there can be overwhelming.

LiftMaster is one of the most obvious choices, and we’ve got a handful of models for you to explore here today. We’ve also got some general pointers to help make finding the best garage door opener for your needs easier.

First, you need to think about the type of garage door opener mechanism you want. 

Garage Door Opener Types

Mechanisms fall into four broad categories:

 

  • Belt Drive: A belt drive is a garage door opener that has a rubber belt running on a cog. Because there are no metal parts involved, you’ll hear no loud banging. A belt drive is going to be the quietest option as long as your door doesn’t make much noise on its track.

    

  • Chain Drive: The most cost-effective option, a chain drive model is reliable but relatively noisy because the doors are lifted and lowered with a metal chain and sprocket.

 

  • Direct Drive: While a direct drive opener still has a metal chain, a garage motor accompanies this mechanism to move it along the track. Direct drive performance is impressive, and the warranties are lengthy, but the cost is much higher than a belt drive opener.

    

  • Screw Drive: Screw drive openers feature a long, threaded metal rod to raise and lower the doors. These openers make a reasonable amount of noise and require maintenance. They’re relatively quick and work best on single and steel doors.

    

There’s no objectively right or wrong answer when choosing the type of opener for your garage door, only the best answer for your situation based on your preferences.

 

Garage Motor Horsepower

Most garage door openers don’t need much more than a ½ horsepower motor. With wooden or heavily insulated doors, it might pay to ramp things up to a ¾ horsepower motor.

 

Motors with one horsepower and above are intended for commercial use, and this size is overkill for a residential door.

 

Size

The majority of residential garage doors are 7 feet high, and the bulk of openers are designed to accommodate this. If you have larger or smaller doors, check for compatibility before committing to your purchase.

Power Source

There are two options when it comes to garage door power sources: AC and DC.

As a rule, AC motors are less expensive, but they are bulky and have become rare these days. A garage door opener with a DC motor costs a little more, but you tend to get a softer start and stop to keep noise and jarring to a minimum. Most of these openers also come with a battery backup option, which can be handy in the event of a power outage.

Smart Functionality

While a garage door remote is standard, many smart models also allow you to take charge with an app on your phone. With the more intelligent models, including many LiftMaster openers, you’ll also enjoy superior access to system information.

Safety

Safety sensors have long been standard to prevent garage doors from closing if there’s an obstacle in the way. Double-check that your opener meets all safety regulations before making a final decision.

Security

Rolling code technology prevents anyone else with the same garage door remote and system from accessing
