I have no idea.  It's one of the few household items we haven't bought recently.

I recommend getting a coffee maker that doesn't need paper filters.
But really, I'm just waiting for you to go mattress shopping. Wink

I don't know why but when I boil my coffee in a pan and strain out the grounds it tastes milder and much better than coffee made in a machine....

My coffee pot doesn't need filters but I use them anyway.I can't stand to get a coffee ground in my mouth.

The garage opener suggestions were over-whelming. Chain versus belt, horsepower, battery back up or not, key-less entry. I know exactly what to look for.Sad

We have a Hormann garage dopor opener. Works great. Overhead Doors, Inc. of Milton did the install. Their phone number is 983-2520.

The last two garage openers I just went to Lowes and bought them for under $200 for a 1/2 horsepower door and installed them. I have installed both the chain and direct drive and honestly they both were pretty simple to install. I did not have to fool around with the old dip switches and it was incredibly simple compared to one I installed in the early 90s in a house we had which had 14 foot garage ceilings. I will not fool around with garage door springs. I think that most of the stuff sold is getting incredibly simple, but although I have not played with my smart phone, most are now having applications for your phone. Stanley comes to mind, but I have no way to verify the same because I have tenants in the house and I am gone.

The websites I looked at last night made the choices sound difficult. I went to Lowes  and only had 11 minutes to choose ( daughter had to pick up her kids). The chart made the choice easy....I wanted two controls and a wireless key pad. Genie Silent Max 1000, 3/4 hp belt drive Made  decision with 6 minutes to spare.

That's the garage door opener I just put in. It was relatively simple to install and it's quiet.

Great....My previous opener mounted above the door rather than on the garage ceiling. I have the handy man coming over in the next day or so. I hope it won' t be a problem.

We have a double garage with a heavy door. Just bought a door opener recently and picked the one with the chains because we figured they were better for the weight of the door. We also got one that has a light on the opener that comes on when the door opens and goes off when it closes. I think it was around $200, and it works very well so far. Has the number coded opener.
I can't help with the brand, because once it was installed the box was tossed. We got it at Lowe's though. A salesman should be able to make a recommendation.

I suspect the belt might be quieter than the chains. Ours isn't very quiet.

I got mine at Lowes ....the main thing I wanted was the key-less outside pad. Without it, I would have to pass out too many house keys. A 1/2 hp would have been sufficient for my lightweight double door....but it was not available with the pad. The opener was $208.00

Yeah, we are constantly losing keys around here,  and sometimes my kids go into our garage when we're not home to pick up some water skis or what-not. They'd have to have their own keys.It was a lot easier to get the code lock and just give them the code. Sounds like you may have gotten the more heavy-duty door opener like we did. We've had it 6 months. Up until then, we were having to open our door manually.  With double doors,that was a serious pain in the butt.

Damn.

I've broken a key off in the ignition, had keys dropped in the river, and had keys fall off a cliff in a backpack.

But, I've never lost keys.

That's irresponsible.

You don't have a remote control for your car?

Make sure your new door is pet friendly. My daughter's garage door did not alert when the cat tried to run under it and it came down trapping the cat's head. The poor cat was stuck there about 5 hrs. in 90 degree weather when my son in law came home and found her. He rushed her to the vets. Her head was swelled twice her head size and she almost didn't make it. It cost him several thousand for the vet bill.
