Chain Drive Openers
This is a great option if you are on a limited budget, own a rental property or have a detached garage. One of the downsides of a chain drive garage door opener is that it is noisier than its counterparts. However, it remains to be one of the most common types of openers today. It is recommended that you keep the chain clean and lubricate it periodically for optimum performance.
Belt Drive Openers
This can sometimes be referred to as a direct drive, as it has a stationary chain that operates inside a steel rail to open the door. It offers fewer moving parts and is the quietest model available. The steel rail also protects the opening mechanism, thus making it less likely to break or require maintenance.
