What is the difference between an AC and DC garage door opener?

Garage door openers powered by an AC motor are typically louder, larger and heavier since they require more components. Garage door openers powered by a DC motor offer the most power and are the smoothest running motors in the industry. They are quieter and lighter and allow more features on the opener like soft start and stop which reduces wear and tear on the door and motor.

Which model garage door openers have motion detection lighting?

The Overhead Door Destiny 1500, Destiny 1200 and Odyssey 1200 all have motion detection lighting.

What horsepower garage door opener do I need for my size garage door?

Since all Overhead Door garage door openers utilize DC motors, they are not measured in horsepower. DC motors are measured by their actual lift capacity. Lift capacity is a more accurate measurement of the strength and power of a garage door opener. Overhead Door offers different model garage door openers utilizing 24 volt and 140 volt DC motors with lifting capacities that range from 500 to 850 lbs.

What model garage door openers have the brightest lighting?

The Overhead Door Legacy 920 model garage door openers offer the option of integrated LED lighting. Integrated LED lighting provides bright, long-lasting, energy-efficient illumination designed to eliminate garage door opener remote interference.
