Things You Need to Know About Garage Door Motors

Installing a new opener and motor is one of the cost-effective ways to upgrade your garage door. The newer models of motors are quieter, and they can be wirelessly connected over the internet to your smartphone. If you need a garage door repair service or upgrade, please get in touch with us at Bob's Advance Garage Doors. The following information are essential things you should know about garage door motors;

There Are Two Types Available

Most people are most familiar with the AC motor types, and these types are known for operating the same speed for the opening and closing of garage doors. The DC motors run on direct current and regulate speed by starting slowly and then picking up and then slow down as the door reaches the ground level. Both AC and DC motors perform well but it seems the AC motors are noisy with the constant speed of operation for closing and opening of the door.

Garage Door Motors are Designed to Lift Heavy Loads

Garage doors can lift and push heavy loads and that is the reason why modern door systems do come with sensors to keep the garage door from closing, especially when there are obstacles on in their way. Your garage door may feel like it weighs just a few pounds, the force of the motor will be powerful enough to crush objects and even people. If the sensors of the garage stopped working, the automatic opener will be disengaged. To prevent accidents from happening with the disengagement of door openers, please contact a garage door technician to fix the problem.

Garage Door Motors Come in Difference Capacities, Sizes, and Power

Both the DC and AC garage door motors offer multiple options that differentiate the number of forces that they provide. The AC motors capacity is measured in horsepower and is available in ½, 1/3 and ¾ HP. The DC motor forces are measured in Newtons and the most popular sizes available are the 500 and 700 Newtons. Though they are different slightly when it comes to delivery, the DC 500 and DC 700 newtons will equate to the ½ and ¾ AC motors options. You may also get commercial doors operating on up to 5HP motors 

Contact Bob's Advance Garage Doors for Your Garage Door Needs

It is important to consider longevity when buying the right size of garage door motors, likewise, the quality of the model you desire must be considered. If your budget is tight, you may want to consider the low-end motor for temporary usage, but when you consider along with term investment then you should get a garage motor with up to 15 years of lifespan. You should also consider other garage door accessories that are long due for replacements on your garage door when choosing a new garage door motor. You may want to contact us for garage door repair technicians before making a final decision on any garage door component you want to upgrade. Please give us a call at Bob's Advance Garage Doors and we will be right there to help you.
