Garage Door Springs in Old Bridge, NJ

Your garage door may seem like a simple piece of equipment, but it’s much more complicated than any other entryway in your home. The sheer weight of the garage door that allows it to close so thoroughly and securely against the elements and intruders means you need an impressive assembly of technology to make it easy to open and close safely.

When something goes wrong with your garage door, it often goes wrong in one specific area: the springs. If you need garage door repairs or new springs fast in the Old Bridge area, contact Arctic Air Conditioning today.

Garage Door Springs

The components carrying the most weight within your garage door, literally and figuratively, are the springs. Garage door springs contain an astounding amount of potential power, which is used so that opening your garage door can be near-effortless. 

It’s easy to forget just how incredibly heavy the bulk of a garage door is, and that’s because the garage door springs lend you or your opener the power necessary to move all that bulk. 

This is why springs can also be quite dangerous when something goes wrong or when an amateur attempts to replace or repair something — that much power being released all at once can be severely destructive to any people or property in the vicinity. 

Don’t DIY garage door springs. Call 732-455-9110 and let our experts install a safe, effective repair or replacement to your Old Bridge home. 

Different Types of Garage Door Springs

Not all garage door springs work in the same way. While there are many subtypes that a professional might need to know about, most garage door springs fall into one of two broad categories: 

  • Torsion springs: These are secured to a metal shaft above your door and apply torque by being twisted and compressed; they naturally want to decompress and untwist, which, when managed properly, balances your garage door. 
  • Extension springs: These are mounted along the sides of your door or on horizontal tracks above, stretching and contracting as the door opens and closes to balance the door. The weight of the door and a little extra is enough to stretch them out, but they want to contract and thus aid in lifting the door to open it. 

If you live in the Old Bridge area, Arctic Air can help you find the right garage door springs and install them properly.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are garage door springs really that dangerous?

It can be instantly lethal if a garage door spring decompresses or flies apart while you’re in the vicinity. Modern garage door systems are designed to be safer and less likely to experience such issues.

Still, there’s always a risk when dealing with that much power — to say nothing of the now-unsupported weight of the garage door itself falling. 

How can I tell if my garage door springs need replacement or repair?

If your garage door struggles to open or close, opens or closes on its own, or makes strange sounds in operation, speak to our team as soon as possible to figure out why. It could be your springs, the tracks, or something else, but all problems warrant prompt repairs to avoid bigger issues.

How long do garage door springs last?

Most springs are rated for the number of times you’ll open and close the door, with most aiming at 10,000 cycles. That should last three to five years for most usage cases.
