Garage Door Opener – Backup Battery

Garage door openers are ever changing. Garage Door Service Co. is proud to offer garage door openers with backup battery technology. This new technology is something we recommend all homeowners and business owners take advantage of. If you are in your home and the power goes out but your vehicle is in the garage you would most likely have to try and manually open the garage door which sometimes does not work. The new battery backup technology can offer you ease and comfort in this situation. If for some reason you have an emergency and need to get out of the house and the only way out is the garage you would want to make sure your garage door can open. The backup battery would kick in during any electrical outage allowing your garage door to open and close.

California has just passed a law that requires all new garage doors installed in homes must have battery backup technology. It is time we all follow suite to this new law and realize the safety hazards if we do not take this technology into consideration when installing a new garage door opener. Garage Service Co. of Denver, CO and surrounding areas is happy to give you more information about this technology and how we can install it for you today! Give a call to learn more!

Broken Spring

There are 2 most common types of springs: Torsion and extension with torsion as most used for double doors.20190107_103340

 

The purpose of having springs system is to eliminate the weight of the door so that the door will be able to be raised up and lowered down by hand or

by automatic motor.

 

When a spring is broken the door will feel a lot heavier if you try to lift by hand. The motor also will sense that the weight is too high and it won’t be able

to lift it more than 6 inches of the ground- that is to prevent damage to the gear and other parts in the motor.20190107_103423

 

Properly adjusted springs should give you the ability to lift the door manually and stop it mid-way without falling down heavy or going up too hard.

 

There Is a range of spring sizes and lengths and the reason for it is simply because doors weight can vary depends on materials, insulation, windows etc.

 

We carry all standard size springs that are most commonly used in the Denver area so we can complete the spring replacement in the first visit to save customers time.20190107_105346
