Halcyon Products > Garage Door Openers

“Door openers” are the motors and mechanisms that physically open and shut your door. They’re generally selected and purchased separately from the door itself, though a few door manufacturers do produce and offer their own specialized openers (see Liftmaster Garage Door Openers).

Choosing the right opener is very important. You have to take a number of different factors into consideration: The door itself (design & weight), your garage (size, ceiling height, etc.) as well as your own individual preferences.

The majority of garage door openers manufactured in the past decade have either a 1/3 horsepower or a 1/2 hp motor, though some 3/4 hp motors are also now available. And while it’s true that a 1/3 hp opener will open most properly balanced garage doors, as the horsepower increases the strain placed on the opener normally decreases. A higher horsepower motor will therefore reduce the amount of strain on the opener, which should make for lower maintenance costs and a longer lasting opener.

Still, it all goes back to looking at what best suits your specific needs and conditions. There’s no reason to purchase a higher powered opener if you’re simply lifting a small 1-car garage door.

For general use, we normally recommend LiftMaster openers. They’re available in a wide range of horsepowers, features and accessories.

Just give us a call and we’ll help you decide which opener best suits your needs!
