In a enclosed Garage, you can use romex and add a new box! Just turn off breaker before you do. If circuit does not have over 20A on it you should be OK! Most states allow homeowners to do simple wiring as long as they follow code!
I checked a few of the local stores in Orlando, FL (Waterford Lakes, Oviedo, and finally Casselberry).. none of them had any until I went to Casselberry. They've got ~ 20 of them.. some on the higher shelves and the others in the clearance area. Picked one up for myself, but wanted to share.
Grabbed the last two of these today in a small HD near my house. Awesome deal for 3/4 hp belt drive opener. Time to return the Chamberlain 1/2 hp chain drive model that I just bought at Costco.com for $199.
I was looking for a nice and quiet Belt Drive Model, but I was not interested in paying over $200 and $300 for one. Then I was reading about the difference between the WD and the HD models, and then I stumbled across this thread. $139.00 is a great deal, but when I walked in to Home Depot, they gave me the last one for $118.00. Not sure why these models were marked down so much, but the battery back-up and other features (3/4 HP) were better than the other models there that were between $99 and $199.
Thank you very much for the heads up post. fortunately, not everyone is running around buying garage door openers in my town.
how is this price? isn't this like a normal price if its just for the garage opener?
This unit is a belt drive (super quiet when compared to chain), has internet features, and can work with your smart phone, has an external mounted key pad if you get locked out of your garage, and has two remotes and a light controller to turn on your interior lights from outside. It even can work for twenty or more up and down cycles if the power is out (battery backup). This unit should cost @ $250.00, but Homedepot and lowes regularly clears out the older expensive models for the later generation units.
If you need a garage door opener, and don't want to spend $250 but want a unit that has the features, then this is an amazing deal.
