Summer Is Not a Vacation for Your Garage Door

For children all across Utah, summer vacation is arriving. Happy summer vacation to all!

As children get excited for the last days of school, some parents may be antsy about having them home all day. It is projected that this year Americans are poised to hit the roads on summer vacation more this year as tempered gas prices and an improved economy have positively helped.

According to a 2003 TODAY SHOW special, the average garage door opens and closes about 1,500 times per year. Most of the time you don’t even think about it as the operation goes on without any incident. However, as with most home appliances, you don’t realize that you need something done until it breaks down.

Signs of Spring Damage

As you are leaving your house each day closing your garage door, those springs may start to feel the wear and tear as the temperature starts to heat up along the Wasatch Front. In Salt Lake City, Ogden, and Provo the average highs in June range into the mid-80s. With the temperature getting warmer, often garage door springs break down.

Wikipedia explains that garage door springs assist the garage door in both the critical function of opening and closing the door. A garage door torsion spring system contains one or two springs that are tightly wound up with cable drums located on each end. Springs are mounted on the header wall of the garage door. When the garage door is opened, the springs unwind and the stored tension lifts the door by turning the shaft, thus turning the cable drums, wrapping the cables around the grooves on the cable drums. When the door is lowered, the cables unwrap from the drums and the springs are rewound to full tension.

Springs last anywhere from 10,000 to 15,000 cycles depending on the model. A cycle consists of one time of both opening and closing the garage door.
