Your garage door is made up of many moving parts, when these parts are not lubricated they will drag. I suggest that you lubricate the door every 2 months to keep the door operating correctly. I have found that a silicone based spray works best for this. The spray can be picked up at any local hardware store for a few dollars.
When you are spraying the door be sure to spray all moving parts. The only thing you should not spray are the safety sensors on both side of the garage door opening. I suggest that you spray the springs, cables, rollers, hinges, bearings and drums. Proper maintenance will save you money and headache in the long run. Lubricating the door is something that you can not do too often. The easier the door runs, the easier it is on your garage door opener.
Your opener is only going to operate well if it is not doing all of the work. Keeping the door balanced and lubricated will ensure this. These little things will be well worth the small amount of effort required. Waiting until it causes a problem with the opener will just be more costly for you.
