Why Are They So Important?
Without springs, your door wouldn’t be going anywhere! That’s why it’s so apparent when there’s a problem with them, as the door will have a much harder time going up and down, if it can do so at all. The springs are essentially the muscles used to lift the door up, because it’s heavier than it probably looks! If you’ve noticed that your garage door is shaking a lot when it moves, or if it refuses to entirely, the issue is probably with the springs.
What are the Different Types?
The two kinds of garage door springs, torsion and extension, both generate energy through tension build up, which is then used to raise the door. However, they do this in different ways. Torsion springs twist up tightly to create and store energy, while extension springs achieve this by being stretched out tautly. While they do both serve the same function, there is a main difference in longevity and safety. Due to being pulled to their limit on a daily basis, extension springs wear down much faster and will need to be replaced more often as a result. They also tend to be more dangerous when they break, because they snap and can ricochet to cause damage to your garage and even your car.
