The installation process of an auto garage door opener is a little difficult. You need a professional and experienced person to install the garage door opener.
In this article let us discuss some tips for better and faster installation of a new garage door opener.
Check the working conditions of the garage door parts:
If you are using two garage doors for the same use. When the spring of one garage door breaks to replace the other door spring also because it will break in less than a year. If the garage door takes more time to open or if it is making extra noises then the problem will not be with the opener. Before buying a new garage opener door check whether the brackets and wobbly rollers are in proper working conditions. If the bottom bracket roller is broken do not replace it on your own because the cable of the roller is attached with extreme tension.
Call a professional service person for replacing the worn bracket roller. If possible buy nylon roller. When compared with steel rollers nylon rollers will produce less noise and it will cost you a little extra. When you find some gaps in the coil then there is some problem with the torsion spring. Call a service person to replace the torsion spring. When it comes to garage door opener installation, you have to research and approach the experts. They provide quality services at a reasonable price.
Balance of the door must be checked:
Test the garage door for balance. Open the garage door halfway and let it move on its own. If it moves up or down then the torsion spring must be adjusted. In this situation, the opener will work hard and it will wear out. So the garage door must be kept in balance. After closing the door, pull the emergency cord. Torsion spring adjustment is very dangerous. So don’t try it on your own. Call a professional service person to adjust the torsion spring.
Select the right opener for the garage door:
If you are buying a garage door opener then buy 1/3 hp or ½ hp for a single door. If you are buying for the double door then it is recommended to buy ½ hp. If it has faux wood or wood overlay then you can select ¾ hp. Openers have a special set of opening speed. So if you are using high horsepower then it does not mean that it will open faster.
Garage door opener also has a belt-drive, screw drive or chain drive. Chain drivers are less expensive when compared with the other type. But they will produce extra noise. Screwdrivers are affordable and it needs very little maintenance. Belt drives do not produce any noise. It is the best choice available in the market. Belt drives are very costly when compared with other types.
Use ladders for installing garage door opener:
When you are fixing the auto garage door opener at a particular height then place it on the ladder and use scrap to install the garage door opener. The rail must be aligned in the center of the garage door.
