Choosing the Best Garage Door Opener

There are many brands to choose from, but choosing out of many can be tricky. So here is a guide on how to choose the best garage door opener.


Genie SilentMax 750S

Known for its quiet and smooth opening system, Genie SilentMax 750S delivers its claims. It is belt-driven and Wi-Fi inaccessible, with a backup battery of 1.25HP. It has no shaking or rattling. A major con is that it only handles doors up to 8 feet.


Chamberlain B1381

It comes with smart lighting features with a belt-driven system. Chamberlain B1381 has built-in Wi-Fi and 1.25HP of horsepower. It can be connected to indoor lights. Unlike Genie SilentMax, it requires complicated garage door installation.


Genie MachForce

MachForce is Genie’s low-maintenance, screw-driven garage door opener with 2HP. Although it’s quick to operate, it can be a bit touchy in extreme weather conditions – a significant disadvantage.


LiftMaster 8164W

If you are looking for a budget-friendly yet incredible deal, LiftMaster 8164W is the best garage door opener for your living. It has Wi-Fi accessibility with an optimal 0.5 Horsepower to lift your garage doors. LiftMaster 8164W is chain-driven and remote-operated with an advanced security system.



The Best Garage Door Opener Award Goes To...

From the overall analysis, LiftMaster appears to grab attention with its affordable price, above-average customer rating, and advanced features. Moreover, LiftMaster has 16 more diverse range of openers to fit in all types of garages for all of its customers.
