The average household uses their garage door four times (4 cycles) a day ( 1) garage door cycle equals the door going up and down (1) time. A garage door that cycles four times a day calculates to 1408 cycles a year and 9856 cycles every seven years.

Many households use their garage door as the entrance to the house.  When replacing your garage door springs, do some simple calculations.Calculate how many times a day the door opens and closes , Multiply this number 365 (the days in a year) then multiply this number by 15 years.This will give you the best cycle life for your garage door.
