What Makes Them Important?
Without the springs, whichever type they may be, your garage door wouldn't be going anywhere. While the opener may give power to the operation, the stored energy in the springs is what gets the door off the ground. If the springs are broken, you won't be going anywhere!
Torsion vs. Extension
There are two types of springs, and while they both work by storing tension to be used as energy to lift the door, they do so in differing ways. Torsion springs twist up tightly to create tension, whereas extension springs are stretched out to do so. The latter are becoming less popular by professionals due to being more dangerous, as well as more likely to break. The constant strain of being pulled out makes them wear down faster, and when they break they tend to snap and bounce violently around, potentially causing damage. No matter the type, it's dangerous in general to try to adjust or replace the springs on your own, which is why it's best to let a professional take care of it! Otherwise, you run the risk of the springs being incorrectly put in and causing troubles for your door, as well as possibly making it a hazard if it isn't working as it should.
