Belt-Driven Garage Door Openers
Belt-driven garage door openers use a rubber belt to slide the trolley when the garage door needs to be opened or closed. In this case, because the trolley is moving on a rubber belt, it is far less noisy than a chain-driven opener. Belt-driven garage door openers also produce less vibrations than chain openers and require less moving parts, which means they are less prone to breakage. Furthermore, homes that have a bedroom or living area near the garage door, a belt-driven option is ideal.
Chain-Operated Garage Door Openers
While chain drive garage door openers are usually the lowest-cost option, some homeowners don’t like the noise. Why? Because as the chain drives the trolley, it causes a racket. While there is noise, chain openers are very cost-effective. Because of the potential for noise, chain garage door openers are a great option when the garage is detached from the house. But for homes where a room or living area is situated near the garage, chain openers are not.
Screw-Driven Garage Door Openers
Screw drive garage door openers use a threaded steel rod to move the trolley. The trolley opens and closes as the thread rotates. Like belt-driven varieties, screw drive garage door openers require less moving parts and do not require a lot of up-front maintenance. Furthermore, screw drive openers also offer a greater level of durability. While they are as quiet and require less maintenance than belt-driven varieties, they are stronger than belt-driven varieties
