Houston, TX, December 19, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Houston garage door service specialist, Saras Garage Doors (http://www.sarasgaragedoors.com) has released a guide for tuning up garage doors by area homeowners.
Javaid Iqbal, owner of Saras Garage Doors said homeowners who follow this simple guide will see lower bills throughout the winter and New Year.
“As we go into 2013, it is important that homeowners consider ways to tune up their garage doors. Tuning up the garage doors has the added benefit of helping the homeowner save money for years to come, not just this year alone,” Iqbal said in his office in Houston, Texas.
The Houston garage door expert advised homeowners to begin by making sure their garage doors are lubricated properly.
“Making sure your garage door is well lubricated is very important. Lubricated garage doors run smoother, have less friction and just work better. Cooler weather tends to dry up the lubrication on rollers and hinges forcing your doors to run sluggishly so it is necessary to keep them lubricated at all times,” Iqbal said.
He advised homeowners to have garage door professionals adjust their garage door openers for optimum efficiency.
“When the weather turns cold and even freeze, garage doors tend to stick to the ground forcing door openers to pull harder to open the doors. Get a garage door specialist to adjust your opener to make sure it has the power to do its job,” Iqbal added.
Iqbal said homeowners should also insulate their garage doors to keep the garage and home cooler thereby saving money on monthly bills.
“Insulating your garage door is very important. Insulating your door keeps your garage cooler. This is very important if you use your garage for storage or other purposes. Insulating helps keep drafts from becoming a problem and this lowers your monthly bills,” Iqbal said.
