Which Type of Garage Door Opener Is Best for You?

There Are 4 Main Types of Openers

Chain Driven Openers

Chain drives are typically the most commonly used and are a very reliable type of opener. This drive runs the garage door on its track by using a metal chain. Chain drives are slightly cheaper than belt drives.

However, chain drive openers tend to be noisy, so if your garage is located below or adjacent to the main rooms in your home, you don't want this opener. We typically don't recommend these types of openers because the small savings aren’t worth it. LiftMaster® also does not warranty the chain for life like it does the belt on the belt drives and the motor is much noisier.

Screw Driven Openers

Screw drive openers use a lifting device that runs on a threaded steel rod, rather than a chain or a rubber belt. These openers tend to only work well in locations where the weather and temperature is constant throughout the year. In areas with a wide range of temperature or weather patterns throughout the year, a screw drive opener is not recommended.

They also are the slowest moving and noisiest of all three openers, but are the least expensive. If you didn’t like how noisy or slow your current opener was, you won’t enjoy having a screw driven opener in your garage. Check out our video showing you the differences between openers below.

Belt Driven Openers

Belt drives are regarded in the garage door industry as the best type of opener. Not only are belt drives as reliable as chain drives, they are also virtually silent. This drive runs on a steel-reinforced belt and typically costs a few dollars more than chain & screw drive openers.

If your garage is attached to your home and has surrounding bedrooms, you'll never be bothered by the noise of your garage door if you get a belt driven opener installed. Many customers end up extremely satisfied with their purchase of a belt drive opener, and can’t ever imagine going back to the noise of a chain opener.

Jackshaft Openers

Instead of the opener mounted in the center of your garage ceiling, the jackshaft is mounted on the wall next to your garage door and attached to the torsion spring above the door. When would you want a jackshaft? When you have high ceilings in your garage or just want to free up some ceiling space. The cost is slightly higher than a ceiling mounted opener.
