Garage Door Installation and Repairs

Holly Hill, FL

On average it takes about 15 seconds for your automated Holly Hill garage door to open. You need to know how much electricity is being used during this time, as well as when the motor is on standby. Check to see whether the openers use a direct current (DC) motor or a standard alternating current (AC) motor. A DC motor uses less electricity and allows better speed control. It will allow the door to close more slowly at the start and end of its cycle, while operating at full speed mid-cycle. This simpler drive mechanism results in an efficient, quiet, and more reliable system.

The power

When choosing an operating system, choose one where the operating motor is able to handle the excess force of opening and closing the garage door. It’s no use if the motor is constantly working at the limits of its capabilities since this will only shorten the lifespan of your operating system, costing you more at the end of the day to maintain.

When the power is out

An emergency release is very important for when the electricity is out. You don’t want to struggle opening your garage door should this scenario occur. Your garage door automation should come with an emergency device that will allow you to open your garage door manually. Purchase a well designed garage door system that will allow this without compromising the security of your garage door.

Not a sound

Regardless of your Holly Hill garage door‘s size, you need automation that will not wake the neighbourhood in the middle of the night. For quietest operation, select a belt drive operator with flexible rubber belts that dampen vibrations and eliminate the noisy clanking of chain and screw drives. Remember that a DC motor will also contribute to noiseless operation, as it enables soft starting and stopping.

Maintenance and Guarantee

When purchasing any kind of operating system, the longer the guarantee, the better the product. Remember that annual maintenance on your door’s operating system will ensure that your operator is working safely, quietly, and effectively. Regular maintenance will extend the lifetime of your system, saving significantly on repair costs.
