How To Choose A Garage Door Opener

Garage door Openers are not something many of us think about until there comes a time for us to have to make decisions regarding the repair or replacement of a broken or old garage door Opener. Luckily, there are companies like Chameleon Overhead Doors that specialize in helping their clients find the exact garage door opener they need to fulfill all of their needs. They’ve been serving the Round Rock and Austin areas for over seven years, and are happy to help out anyone ready to make a choice of the kind of garage door they’re bringing to their home.

Before making this big decision, there are a few things each person and family needs to think about. Knowing what’s important to you is the first step to ensuring you make the best decision. Some things to consider are:

  • Low Noise – If you are sensitive to loud sounds, or you home is located on top of or next to a garage, you’ll want to look for brands like Lift Master belt drive that have a quieter belt than other companies. This will provide you the peace of mind you need and ensure that your garage door won’t drive you insane each time someone opens or closes it.
  • Remote Control – Having a remote control may seem fantastic, but there are lots of problems that can pop up when using a remote control to open and close your door. If your neighbor happens to have a remote control using the same frequency, he might be opening and closing your garage door without meaning to. Make sure that any company you are considering has a reliable remote control that keeps your home safe, your items secure, and your garage door from opening whenever your neighbor leaves for work in the morning. When it comes to safety, you definitely shouldn’t skimp.
  • Overhead Lights – Lights are a feature all garage doors come with. What you should keep in mind though, is whether or not the lights operate independently of the door, or if they turn on based on motion. For those of us who like to do a lot of work in the garage, but don’t always need the door open when we are there, having a light that works with more advanced features is definitely a plus to consider.
  • Battery Back-Up – It’s important to know how your door will open when there isn’t power in the house. In some special models, there is an option to install a battery back-up that allow you to keep opening and closing the door, even when your house has no electricity. This is important in cases when there is an emergency. If your garage door doesn’t come with the option of including a battery back-up, then know that there still should be some kind of way to open and close it manually.

Regardless of what features you’re considering, or what confusion and questions you may have regarding the process of researching and deciding on a garage door opener, Chameleon Overhead Doors is here to help you out. Call with any questions, and feel free to ask for advice about what features are worth including and which are not. Garage doors differ depending on each family’s lifestyle—finding the one that fits yours is the key to being happy with your new addition.
