Garage Door Openers More Than You Realize
The garage door opener of your garage is not just your remote to open and close the door. In fact, it is actually located above the track and the part is motorized. Located in the ceiling, that is where it plugs into your garage.
The remote, keypad, or wall mount button is the part that is used to turn the opener on so that it functions smoothly. If the opener is not working right, then you will not have the option to open or close your door automatically.
Door openers should have a frequency between 300-400 MHz. This is important because you don’t want it to interfere with other electronics. Cell phones and military devices can cause issues with openers so you want to be mindful of the frequency.
Programming a Remote to Your Opener
In order for the receiver and transmitter to work together correctly, the frequencies must align well for greater functionality. Also, the dip switch patterns need to work together correctly. If they are the same as someone close to you in proximity, then it will open their door and yours. Talk about a difficult situation! We can help you remedy that issue.
Our team of well-trained, certified technicians is able to help with your opener. They are ready to assist and reprogram your remote to your opener. If you need a new remote, then we are the team to help you select the right one and give you the assistance that you need.
There are four main designs when it comes to options for garage door openers. Our techs can help you with any part that you need. They are able to work on any make, model, or brand that is on the market. We stay stocked up for your convenience. Out techs have constant access to our warehouse that has all types of openers and other garage door parts that you would ever need.
Here is a bit more info about the different types of openers:
Newer styled homes that have a tall garage will often need a jackshaft opener. If your ceilings are higher than the average size, it will be tough to plug in the opener. The jackshaft is installed on the side of the garage door rather than above.
A jackshaft is compatible with vertical, high, or standard lift doors. In the event that you have a low headroom garage door, then this is not the best opener option for you.
A screw drive opener has a metal, threaded rod that moves the trolley across the door’s tracks.
When your door opener begins to operate, it causes the lifting part of the part to pull open or push down.
The belt drive is similar to a chain drive but it uses a belt to push the door. This particular opener is more expensive. Often customers think that it is worth it because the noise level is drastically less than with other opener styles.
If you need something quieter on your assembly, then this is the best option for your commercial or residential style door. Many customers that have a garage door attached to their home feel like this is a great option so that they have less noise inside their home.
The chain drive is the most common and typical type of opener. The chain drive works by pushing or pulling the trolley up and down the track. The trolley is connected to the hockey stick bar that is attached to your garage door.
This is a cost effective option for a garage door opener. However, it will be more noisy than is preferred. Overall the perks outweigh the negatives, but it is really up to what our customers prefer. We stand by to assist and answer questions so they get the info they need to make a decision they will be pleased with.

The Different Opener Parts
Each opener has a lot of different parts. Don’t worry, our techs can help you with what you need most. These are important parts to consider:
Our professional techs use the dip switch to help program your garage door’s remote to your opener. You want them to work together seamlessly. In fact, this is important because you don’t want to open your neighbors garage when you open yours!
A dip switch is the part of the opener that makes your remote and opener work together. In order for them to communicate, the tiny switches inside of the parts need to match up just right. We are here to help you with the program aspect.
Receivers and Transmitters
The receiver and transmitter are both crucial elements when it comes to your door opener. The receiver is found inside of the door opener and it communicates with the transmitter, which is in the remote or wall mount. When the transmitter is pressed, it signals the receiver to operate the motor inside of the opener.
Transmitters that are remotes can be two or three buttons. Each button will need to be programmed to the proper open based off of the dip switch pattern.
When you push the transmitter, the receiver gets the signal and then power builds up in the capacitor which causes it to work. The capacitor is the electric component inside of the opener that causes the mechanism to push or pull the door to open and close.
