How Much Is An Electric Door Opener? | Sales: custsvc@autodoorandhardware.com

An electric door opener is used primarily on commercial entrance doors to power them open automatically for pedestrians entering the building. How much does one cost though? Well they can vary in price, but on average for a good quality electric door opener you are looking at around $2500 to $4000 without installation. Installation of an automatic door opener will typically require about 3 hours, so you would be looking at an additional $400 to $1000 if you choose to have it installed by others.

Price Break Down Of An Electric Door Opener


Electric Door Opener Only - $2500 To $4000

So we know that a good electric door opener will cost between $2500 to $4000. This would be for an automatic door opener that meets all building requirements, is UL Listed, Fire Rated, and uses a high quality DC motor with multi-gear gearbox. Lower cost models maybe available, however they tend to lack the attributes listed above, resulting in nickel and dime repairs later on, not to mention failed building inspections and fines if they lack a UL Label or Fire Label.

Electric Door Opener Actuators - $500 to $750

High quality automatic door openers can be activated open by simply pushing or pulling on the door. However, most models don't have this feature of "push and go", resulting in the need for actuator devices. Hardwired push buttons are the cheapest type of electric door opener actuator. Wireless actuators are easier to install, however are more costly due to the battery transmitters and receiver module that must be purchased. Touchless actuators are the most expensive since they act as motion sensors detecting the wave of a hand.

Labor Cost & Travel Time

Depending on your location, travel time will vary as well as the labor cost. Automatic door openers can take anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours to install, depending on your ability to read instructions. If outsourced, the labor to install an automatic door opener can cost between $400 to $1000. If you have a handyman, contractor, or friend that can read instructions the labor cost can be greatly reduced rather than using an automatic door company.
