Common questions about garage door opener products:

What are the types of garage door openers?

Though we exclusively offer Sommer garage door openers, it’s important that we remain knowledgeable about all of the garage door opener types we are equipped to install. Sommer’s products operate using direct drive technology and a variety of additional drive types. But what exactly does that mean for you?

There are five types of garage door openers: chain drive, belt drive, direct drive, screw drive, and jackshaft. Each of these works with a motor that moves on a trolley connected to your garage door. The primary difference between these five types is that some work on a chain while others are operated with belts or threaded parts.

  • A chain drive opener operates with metal chains that draw the garage door up and down. Due to this metal mechanism, it can often be the noisiest option for an opener, although it does tend to be the least expensive.
  • A belt drive opener uses a rubber belt with the trolley system. Because this belt is rubber, the garage door opening cycle is much smoother and quieter. Additionally, the lack of vibrations reduces the number of repairs needed.
  • A direct drive opener is the simplest opener because it does not operate with a belt, chain, or threaded piece. Instead, the motor itself moves the trolley and propels the garage door up and down. We recommend this as the quietest, longest-lasting opener. It is also part of our featured SOMMER Operators collection.
  • A screw drive opener uses a threaded steel rod that rotates to move the garage door. This opener also has fewer moving parts, which reduces noise and vibration.
  •  A jackshaft opener is mounted on the wall beside your garage door instead of on the ceiling. It is a powerful motor option that works great if you have high lift tracks because of car lifts or ceiling storage.

Unfortunately, standard garage door openers will not work during a power outage, if there is not a battery backup installed. Battery backups are stored above your garage door opener. This battery backup will continue to work until the power is back on. When you have a garage door opener installation, you can request a battery backup to be installed as well. 

Belt drive garage door openers use rubber belts on a trolley system. Belt drive garage door openers tend to be quieter and have fewer vibrations, which reduces the number of repairs needed. Chain drive garage door openers use metal chains that move in an up and down motion. Chain drive garage door openers are a more cost-friendly option but tend to create more noise. Screw drive garage door openers rotate on a threaded steel rod. Because screw drive garage doors have fewer moving pieces, they are quieter and have fewer vibrations. 

Your protection is extremely important, so we understand wanting to ensure no one else can open your garage door with their remote. Only programmed garage door remotes will open your garage door. If you are leaving your home for an extended period and would like to ensure your garage door opener cannot be opened while you are gone, then we suggest unplugging your garage door opener. Once you are back home, then you can simply plug your garage door opener up and reprogram your garage door remote. 

Garage door opener replacement cost varies depending on the type of drive system you choose. Chain drive tends to be the cheapest option, but they are noisy and need more maintenance than other types. On the higher end, belt and direct drive openers are the most expensive; however, they are the longest lasting and produce very little noise.
