Common Problems With Garage Door Openers
Think about how often you use your garage door opener each day. Your garage door opener operates several times each day for several years without issue. One thing that can cause an issue with a garage door opener’s components is the torsion spring.
If you have the proper tools, knowledge and experience, it is possible to install a garage door opener yourself. However, we don’t recommend it. With professional installation, you can be sure your garage door opener will be installed correctly the first time. Professional installation will also be necessary if any door adjustments are needed to accommodate the new garage door opener.
If you’re looking to have a new garage door opener installed in your home near Minneapolis, you can expect to pay anywhere from $217-$638, or about $327 on average. The main factors that will affect the cost for installation are the type and brand of the garage door opener you want installed, but the removal of the old unit may also affect the final cost.
The average amount of time needed to install a garage door opener near Minneapolis is 4-6 hours, but this time can vary based on factors like the weather, the complexity of the installation and whether you’re installing a brand new garage door opener or replacing an old one. Typically, replacement of an old garage door opener will take less time than a first-time installation.
The torsion spring is a coil that runs over the door horizontally and does a lot of the heavy lifting during the opening process. Your opener will need to be replaced if there are torsion spring issues. It’s extremely dangerous to remove the torsion spring because of the amount of tension in the spring.
Other problems can occur if you have an inefficient remote unit. The remote unit uses a radio code to cause the motor to run. The motor can also have issues that will require professional maintenance services.
Different Types of Openers
There are different kinds of garage door opener systems. The standard system uses a torsion spring to lift the door but motorized systems offer more power, convenience and flexibility.
Most units use either a chain, screw or belt drive. Screw systems are not recommended in cold Minnesota climates. Chain drive systems make more noise when used but won’t need to be replaced. Belt drive systems are designed to make less noise and require less maintenance.
If your door is over 12 years old and it makes a lot of noise or gives you other problems, you should call All American Door (763) 244–1605 to get a replacement unit installed today.
