Is a belt or chain drive garage door opener better?
Most residential garage door openers are one of two types: belt or chain operated. We can help you choose the best garage door opener for your property. Both are efficient, reliable garage door openers. Chain garage door openers are the most common type used in the U.S., since they’re cheap and easily available. The downside to chain openers is they can be noisy, and they don’t last as long as belt openers because they have so many metal parts.
Belt openers are the next generation in garage door opening technology. They’re much quieter than chain openers, and because the belt is made of rubber it can last longer. However, they’re more expensive than chain models, and if your garage experiences extreme temperature fluctuations throughout the year a chain opener might be the better choice.
How long do Genie garage door openers last?
How long your Genie garage door opener will last depends a lot on how often it is used and how well it is maintained. However, most garage door openers can be expected to last about 10-15 years, and potentially much longer. All Genie garage door openers come with a limited manufacturer’s warranty, so you’re protected after your purchase. If you need a Genie door repair and it is covered under a warranty, we’ll let you know. Even after your warranty ends, Austin’s Greater Garage Doors can keep your Genie door running smoothly for years with regular inspections, maintenance, and repairs.
Do Genie remotes work with LiftMaster?
LiftMaster is another leading brand of garage door openers. Genie and LiftMaster openers often work on the same frequency, meaning you can sync a Genie remote with a LiftMaster door opener. Whether or not your Genie remote and LiftMaster opener are compatible will depend on the exact model of each. Our technicians can help you find compatible parts for your garage door opening system, and sync them for you.
