What is a Garage Door Opener?
The garage door opener of your garage is not just your remote that you push to make your garage door open or close. That is what most people think! However, it is a motorized part that is located above the track. This important door component is found in the ceiling and plugs into the garage.
The remote, keypad, or wall mount button that most people know well is what makes the opener turn on and function. If you have an opener that is broken, then you won’t be able to open and close your garage door automatically.
We guarantee your satisfaction every time we work on your door. Our team would be honored to assist you with your opener.

Door openers should have a frequency between 300-400 MHz so that they won’t bother other electronics. Cell phones, military devices and similar items can mess with your openers frequency.
Remote and Opener Programming
You need to have your garage door remote and opener work together smoothly. They require the correct frequencies to work together right. This is true of your dip switch too because you need to be conscious of when it is close to another door like yours. The issue could be that it would open them both. You don’t want that!
Our certified technicians can 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 contact. We will make sure that all is working right from frequency to function.
Four Types of Openers
Openers come in four main types. Our techs can help you with any part or style that you need or want for your garage door. They are able to work on any make, model, or brand that is on the market.
Out techs have constant access to our warehouse that has all types of openers and other garage door parts that you could possibly require for your door. We stay full and stocked for our customer’s best interests and convenience.
Check out this additional info when it comes to the different types of openers:
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.
The chain drive is the most common and typical type of opener. This is a cost effective option for a garage door opener. It can be a noisy option opener wise but sometimes the cost perk is what sells customers on this one. Feel free to ask us anything that concerns you with a chain drive or other options. We are here to serve you and your garage door needs.
A screw drive opener has a metal, threaded rod that moves the trolley across the door’s tracks.
When your opener begins to function, it will cause the lift part to pull or push down.
The belt drive is similar to a chain drive but it uses a belt to push the door instead. We think this is a great option, but it is pricier. The noise is so much less with this type of opener and that is what causes the price to go up.
Many customers that have a garage door attached to their home feel like this is a great option so that they have less noise and distraction from their door. If you need something quieter, then this is the best option for your commercial or residential style door.
Taller homes often require a jackshaft opener. The jackshaft is installed on the side of the garage door rather than above. This particular opener works well with vertical, high, or standard lift doors. However, if you have a low headroom garage door, then this is not the opener that you should choose for your garage door.
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:
We have an excellent team of techs and they can program the dip switch to your garage door’s remote. This part is crucial. The issue would be that if you don’t have the dip switch programmed correctly, then you could open someone else’s garage that is in close proximity.
A dip switch is the part of the opener that makes your remote and opener work cohesively. In order for them to communicate, the tiny switches inside of the parts need to match up just right. Our techs can assist you with programming for this very thing.
Receivers and Transmitters
The receiver and transmitter are important components for your garage 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. Once you press the transmitter, then it will signal the receiver to operate the internal motor. There are often several buttons on the remote and they will each have to be programmed to the right dip switch pattern.
The capacitor is the electric component inside of the opener that causes the mechanism to push or pull the door to open and close. When you push the transmitter, the receiver gets the signal and then power builds up in the capacitor to allow it to function.
