Torsion springs are the most common type of spring in a garage door system. The torsion spring is attached to the header (or head) of your garage and the opposite end of the spring is attached to your garage door. Torsion springs are typically sized based on the weight of your garage door, which can range from 1/4 ton to 2 tons. The weight rating is stamped into the side of each torsion spring.
Is your garage door hard to open or close?
The torsion spring has two coils that when twisted, produce energy that lifts and lowers your garage door. When installing new torsion springs, it’s important that you match the proper size for your garage door. If you have an older-style garage door with exposed torsion springs, it may be possible to purchase a replacement set or even just one coil if one breaks or stretches out over time. However newer style doors use hidden torsion springs which reduces maintenance by hiding them away inside the header box where they cannot be seen or easily accessed.
If your garage door still works but it is hard to open or close, then chances are that your torsion springs need replacing. The most common reason for this is that they have lost their elasticity over time due to constant use and exposure to different weather conditions.

The best way to ensure that your torsion springs last longer is by maintaining them properly by lubricating them every six months during the spring and fall seasons. You should also inspect them regularly for signs of wear such as cracks or rusting which indicate imminent failure in order to avoid any inconveniences later on down the road.
