Repair the opener, or replace it with a new one?
This 8is one of the questions that we are being asked all the time. And it is impossible to give a professional answer without physically inspecting the opener and its condition. Many times the opener can be repaired, but to repair it will cost almost as replacing it with a new unit, and in that case we must let the customer know the price of a new unit, and that it may better for him to replace it.
Garage Door Opener Huntington New York
If you are looking to replace your garage door opener, or thinking to install a new garage door opener, we are the answer for all your garage door needs in Huntington. We carry high quality garage door openers, including Chain drive openers and Belt drive openers. There are many good garage door openers manufactures that work in the American market, but we prefer to work with Lift Master, that offer high quality and reliable openers.
What kind of opener will be the best choice for me?
The most common three kinds of garage door openers in the market today are the Chain drive, the belt drive, and the screw drive. The third is recommended for people who would like to purchase an opener and do the installation by themselves, and for the other 2 we would like to say few words:
The chain drive opener: This opener is strong, reliable and probably our best seller. The way it is working is by an iron chain which move along the rail, lowering and raising the door.
The belt drive opener: The same idea as the chain drive opener just that instead of the iron chain, there is a rubber belt which move along the rail, and that make him much quieter than the chain drive opener.
If the silent operating of the opener is important to you, you should definitely go with the belt drive opener. If you do not care about the noise, there is no reason to spend extra money on a belt drive opener, since the chain drive is as good, and cost less.
Garage Door Opener Safety
Whether it is a garage door opener in Brooklyn, a garage door opener in Smithtown NY, or anywhere else, the Federal law require that every automated garage door to include a safety feature. The safety feature you will usually find is the safety sensors, we like to say few words about it:
The safety sensors
If you own an electric garage door, it should include safety sensors. There is no option here, since this is the law. If you look at the garage door tracks, you will find a safety sensor on each side, close to the ground. They are installed in a way that the lens of the sensor is facing the other sensor, and whenever something is breaking the invisible laser beam which run between them, the garage door opener will not close the door, in order to prevent the thing which broke the beam from getting hurt. Again, every time that the opener does not get a signal that everything is ok, it will stop and reverse to open position.
Even if someone accidently moved one of the sensors, if the sensor was hit, if the cable that connect the sensor to the opener was cut, or even if there is dirt on the lens, that garage door opener will not close, since it does not receive a signal that everything is alright.
Broken garage door opener Huntington NY
It happen to us a lot, that we are receiving a call from a customer who tell us that there is something wrong with the garage opener. Sometime it is a garage door opener problem, and we fix it. But many times the problem is coming from a different source, usually in the mechanism of the door.
You probably ask yourself “why it seem like a garage door opener problem?” The answer is simple, what make it easy to raise and open the door, and what lower and close the door is not the opener, but it is the spring system. The opener is in charge of less than 10% of the lifting. So if the spring snapped, or any other problem with the garage door mechanism, it makes it difficult for the opener to open and close the door, and to the unprofessional eye it may seem like the opener need to be repaired, when the problem is really in a different part.
What to do if the opener does not work
First, it is important to clear that a broken garage door should not be used before it is repaired and inspected by a trained garage door tech. If your garage door does not work, there are few things you should do:
If the remote control does not open or close the door, try to replace the battery.
If the Key pad does not open or close the door, again, replace the battery.
Check if there is electricity in the garage.
Make sure that there is nothing at the path of the door.
If you did all those things, and your garage door opener still not responding, please contact us for a same day garage door repair in Huntington NY.
