Creating a Quiet Home Begins in the Garage

LiftMaster® products minimize noise to build optimal home environments

ELMHURST, Ill., April 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the National Sleep Foundation, 74 percent of people report that they need a quiet atmosphere to get a good night's sleepi. But with a noisy garage door opener, there is increased cause for disturbance and sleep disruption. LiftMaster®, the number one brand of professionally installed garage door openers and access solutions, has developed unique home automation products to diminish excess noise and help homeowners get the rest they need.


Garage door opener technology has advanced in the last decade to reduce noise. One of the top reasons people call a LiftMaster Dealer to replace their working garage door opener is a noise disturbance - a prevalent issue for homes with family members who work odd hours, individuals who have a bedroom above or adjacent to the garage, as well as households with infants. To reduce the noises that are often associated with a garage door opener more than ten years old, both belt drive and wall mount garage door openers offer a solution.

"LiftMaster is dedicated to improving the lives of homeowners through our industry-leading innovations that help create a quiet home environment," said John Villanueva, Vice President and General Manager, Residential Access Solutions. "Upgrading an outdated, noisy garage door opener for one of LiftMaster's belt drive or wall mount models, which are virtually silent, ensures a more quiet and relaxing setting for all members of the household."

Belt-drive garage door openers, which feature a steel-reinforced rubber belt, eliminate the vibrations and noises associated with older chain drive models, resulting in a quietly operating garage door opener. Models such as LiftMaster's Elite Series 8550W, feature a DC motor belt system, which delivers powerful, quiet performance. Separately, wall mount garage door openers, which hang on the wall next to the garage door, run ultra-quiet by eliminating sound and vibrations through the ceiling. Wall mount models, such as LiftMaster's Elite Series 8500, also free up ceiling space in the garage, providing homeowners with additional storage options to reduce clutter.

Properly lubricating your garage door system also helps to eliminate noises and unwanted squeaks. Every few months, apply a small amount of silicon lubricant to the door rollers, bearings, and hinges to keep your door running smoothly. If noise continues to persist, contact your local LiftMaster Dealer.
