What are the advantages and disadvantages of a belt drive garage door opener?
Belt drive garage door openers actually work the same as chain drive openers. Both drives have the same mechanisms. The difference is that a belt drive uses belt, instead of chains, making it quiet to operate. However, the disadvantage is that it’s also the most expensive of all types of openers.
What are the different types of openers?
A chain drive uses a chain in its mechanism, the belt drive uses a belt, screw drive uses a corkscrew rod, and the direct drive is attached directly to the door’s torsion bar to operate. Direct drive takes up less space in the garage.
