If you had to pick the most intelligent part of your garage door system, it would probably be the opener. It's essentially the brains behind your overhead door. The unit has to work perfectly with almost every other component, from the door to the springs to the safety sensors. This means that even a small problem can quickly develop into something more difficult to fix. After dealing with a vast range of electric opener problems for so many years, our accumulated wealth of experience now enables us to quickly find and fix any related issue you may deal with.
Why Isn't My Opener Running?
This type of problem could have various causes. From physical damage to the motor or the hardware parts of the drive system to electrical glitches that cause the circuit board or some of its wires to fry. Opener troubleshooting isn't a simple task, and while some aspects of it you can do yourself, like checking the remote control batteries and inspecting the power cord, you should leave the rest to professionals. Attempting DIY repairs with your garage door opener is not a wise decision, as you could damage some other components, not to mention, you could accidentally get hurt!

Which Is The Best Garage Door Opener?
The major types of models can be divided based on some basic qualities. Chain drive openers are the loudest out of the three main types, but also the strongest (generally speaking). Models that use this type of drive system also tend to be cheaper than their counterparts. Belt drive openers are often more expensive, but they are by far the quietest option. Their reinforced belt may not be perfect for very heavy doors, though, unless it's particularly strong. Screw drive openers don't need a lot of maintenance, due to the fact that they consist of fewer moving parts. They are the fastest type of unit, but they aren't silent, and temperature shifts can affect their performance on rare occasions.

How long do garage door openers last?
Automatic openers are designed to last quite a lot. However, they have the huge task of operating a very heavy door so regular visual checks and good maintenance will extend the lifespan of your opener. Most models will last around ten years, however, if you schedule regular maintenance checks and ensure minor repairs are done on time, your opener can last fifteen years or even more.
