The Importance of Torsion Springs
Safety for You and Your Family
One of the most important components of your garage door is the springs, and to keep your home safe, you need to make sure your springs are in good condition to prevent getting stuck at home or not having access to get into your home.
The springs on your garage door enable the door to open and close smoothly. These springs are incredibly powerful, and if they are broken, the garage door may fall down when it isn’t supposed to. A sudden fall of a garage door could seriously injure a person and damage your vehicle, so you want to make sure your garage door is in safe working condition.
Because garage door springs hold so much potential energy, they should be replaced by a professional. Without the proper training, replacing a spring could result in serious injury. A professional garage door technician has the training necessary to prevent the springs from causing injury and the skill to adjust or replace a spring without hurting themselves.
When They Break
Torsion springs are what counterbalances the weight of your entire garage door. Without fully functioning garage door springs, the garage door will likely not open. And for some reason, it seems to always happen at the worst time! It is usually not very long before the garage door opener burns out from having to work 10 times harder. This is why replacing the broken spring is very important to prevent further damage to your garage door, the opener, your car, or especially your family.
