Default garage door opener

hey now!

does anyone have a automatic garage door opener installed in a garage with a room over it and if so what is the noise like?

thinking of switching rooms for my little one and am wondering if i'll just have to move her back again once the opener is installed at a later date.

thanks in advance!

Our great room is above the garage and I would say the noise is minimal; it's not too much louder than it was without the opener. That being said you can still hear it (with or without) the opener and if you are a light sleeper it might affect you initially.

I would recommend that you consider purchasing a belt drive system if you want to reduce the noise.

GLWT!

Belt Drive Liftmaster 3/4 HP is the best one. Minimal noise.. but it also depends on the type of door you have..

Yes. You will find the door makes more noise than the opener. The springs corrode a little bit over time and make more noise when they turn.
