Which Garage Door Opener is Quietest?

There are a variety of choices when it comes to garage door openers, and when you are looking for the best quality and quietest features it can be difficult to choose the best product for your needs. Here is what you should know when deciding which garage door opener is quietest.

Belt Drive Garage Door Openers

Belt drive garage door openers are perhaps the quietest openers on the market. While these tend to be slightly more expensive when compared to chain drive and screw drive opener costs. Belt drive garage doors operate similarly to chain drive openers and use a polyurethane, fiberglass, or steel-reinforced rubber belt for operation.

It’s important to note that belt drive garage door openers may not be the best choice for heavier garage doors, and you should consider a chain drive opener for your garage.

Chain Drive Garage Door Openers

Chain drive garage door openers operate just as a belt drive and by far the most common choice for homeowners installing a new garage door opener. This type of garage opener employs a chain to push the trolley connected to the door to open or close your garage door.

Chain drive garage door openers offer reliability and durability and perhaps the most cost-effective and budget-friendly option. It’s important to note that these openers can be loud, especially if your garage is attached to your house and will need adjustments routinely.

Screw Drive Garage Door Openers

Screw drive garage door openers work differently than other types of openers, like chain and belt drive openers. Screw drive openers utilize a threaded-steel rod, along with a trolley, to rotate the garage opener motor to move the door.

Screw drive garage door openers are perhaps the easiest to maintain since there are fewer moving parts and there is no need for adjustments as there are with chain drive openers. In addition, screw drive openers tend to operate quieter than chain drive openers and only get quieter over time.
