Overhead Garage Door Opener 

The electrical overhead garage door opener was devised by C.G. Johnson in 1926 in Hartford City, Indiana. Electrical Garage Door openers didn't become popular until one was offered by Age Meter Business of Chicago after the Second World War where the overhead garage door could be opened via a keypad found on a post at a switch inside the garage or the end of the drive.

Contrary to popular belief, the electrical opener will not supply the real lifting electricity to open a garage door that is hefty. Most of the real lifting electricity comes from the counterbalance springs. The electrical opener supplies just a modest number of force to control how much the door shuts and opens. Generally, the garage door opener additionally holds the door shut in place of a lock.

The typical electrical garage door opener is made up of power unit which has the electric motor. The power unit attaches to a course. The trolley is pulled along the track when the motor is used by a chain, belt, or screw that turns. Limitation switches on the power unit control the space the garage door closes after the motor gets a signal from the remote control or wall push button to use the door and opens.

The whole assembly hangs above the garage door. The power unit hangs from the ceiling and is found towards the back of the garage. The power head is generally supported by angle iron that was perforated.

Lately another kind of opener, referred to as the jackshaft opener, has become more popular. This fashion of opener includes a motor that transfers the door and attaches to the side of the torsion stick down and up by just spinning the stick. These openers need several additional parts to work for residential use. These have the edge that they free up ceiling space that railing and an average opener would dwell. These also have the disadvantage the door must have a torsion stick to attach the motor to.
