Garage Door Maintenance

Garage Door Maintenance Tips

Annual inspection of your home garage door is very important to prevent premature replacement or opening difficulties. Painting is the first and most important defense against moisture and sun damage to your door. Most wood doors will require to be painted every couple of years. Once rotted wood is hard to repair and may even reach the point where door has to be replaced. Ensuring all cracks are filled and protected with paint is a good investment in the life of your garage door. Reglular inspection will ensure maintance is done in a timely manner. The garage door has many moving components which all contribute to the operation of the door. the most common problem homeowners encounter is difficulty in opening the door. Applying lubricant and making minor adjustments is usually all that is required to resolve this issue. I usually recommend using penetrating oil to all the rollers and hinges at least once a year. I also put a light coating of grease on the track, this seems to free up the opening and closing plus the added benefit of quietening track noise. check all your bolts for tightness and re-tighten as required. If your door seems unusually heavy your springs probably require adjustment. Unless you have had previous experience on adjusting these springs it is recommended that you call in a garage door contractor to perform this chore. He will inspect the rest of the door while there and advise on any other deficiencies. Aligning the rollers with the track is a fairly simple job that can be performed with just basic tools, wrench, hammer and block of wood. Sagging doors or panels can be repaired by adding supports or even replacing just the damaged panel. Electric door openers are quite common and are fairly easy for homeowner installation. Ensure door is properly adjusted so that it closes completely and the auto safety switch is working. The common mistake with installing the safety beam is choosing too low a height, this will allow the posssibility of the beam passing under your vehicle, allowing the door to be accidentally lowered onto your vehicle. This is personal preference but I would not be happy to come out and find a dent across the roof of my new vehicle. So remember that preventive maintenance will allow you many years of problem free use of your garage door.

Common Electrical Problems Found

Home Inspections and Electrical Defects

 

Having conducted over 1,500 home inspections in the Barrie, Orillia and Alliston area there are some electrical defects that keep appearing. Having just completed a two-day CEC course I made notes and will list these common defects. Note: These are quotes from the Canadian Electrical Code and may differ from your local authority. It is always recommended that you check with your local authority for any local rules that may apply.

 

12-3024     Unused Openings in Boxes, cabinets and fittings

 

Unused openings in boxes, cabinets, and fittings shall be effectively closed by plugs or plates affording protection substantially equivalent to that of the wall of the box, cabinet or fitting.

 

This is always picked on any home that has had any renovations or change of heating system. Plugs are available from most hardware stores that just snap into place and only cost pennies.

 

Receptacles for Dwelling Units.

 

Location

 

  1. except as otherwise provided for in this Code, in dwelling units duplex receptacles shall be installed in the finished walls of every room or area, other than kitchens, bathrooms, hallways, laundry rooms, water closet rooms, utility rooms, or closets, so that no point along the floor line of any usable wall space is more than 1.8m horizontally from a receptacle.
  2. at least one duplex receptacle shall be provided in each area, such as a balcony or porch that is not classed as a finished room.
  3. One receptacle for refrigerator and if gas stove one not more than 130mm from floor.
  4. Sufficient 15 amp/split or T-slot so that distance is not greater than 900mm.
  5. At least one duplex receptacle shall be provided at ground level.
  6. One duplex receptacle per car parking in residential garage.
  7. Stove receptacles shall be located at a height not exceeding 130mm at center of receptacle.
  8. Electric water heaters shall be controlled by temperature regulating device and also be provided with a secondary protection that will open if temperature reaches 96 C.
  9. Electric water heaters shall be installed so that electrical supply connections, service covers, and name plate markings will be accessible.
  10. All branch circuits within 1.5 m from the floor shall be adequately protected from mechanical injury.
  11. 3 way switches will be supplied for any stairs containing four or more risers, except an un-finished basement, which is excempt.

 

Pot Lights

 

When buying pot lights for your home, always ensure that you read the manufactures installation instructions prior to purchasing. Many halogen pot lights are designed for installation in suspended ceiling as they require air space to prevent overheating.

 

If you are installing pot lights into your attic, carefully read your manufactures instructions and specifically look for required clearances. It is possible to build a 3 sided box out of drywall or plywood and install this over the pot light. You have now met the manufactures installation requirements and can now cover you boxes with insulation, protecting your attics insulation integrity.

 

Over 50% of the pot lights I scan with my thermal imaging camera show huge amounts of heat loss. Not only do a majority of pot light installations not have adequate insulation installed on top of them, but usually the installer has compressed and waded through the blown in attic insulation and left exposed trails through out the attic.

 

Insulation

 

Although I have covered this issue in my Ice Dams article, I am still going out many times a week for attics with leaks, ice build up or moisture issues.

 

Do not stuff insulation into your rafters along your outer wall unless you are 100% sure of how much ventilation you need and where your soffit vents are.  Some older homes only have a couple of vents in their soffits so it is a recipe for disaster to arbitrarily plug up your soffits. Also, your insulations R-value comes from the air trapped in the insulation. Compressing or rolling insulation negates most of its R value and then you have only accomplished preventing your attic from being properly ventilated.

 

If you have questions about any of these items, call your local municipality or city building department or one of your local professional home inspectors for some free advice.

Power Line Clearances

The Canadian Electrical Code Part I gives electrical utilities an exemption from the code for "installations and equipment in its exercise as a utility, located outdoors or in buildings or sections of buildings used for that purpose." The CEC Part I is "a voluntary code for adoption and enforcement by regulatory authorities." When adopted into the provincial regulations, this exemption is almost always maintained for work that falls within the scope of an electrical utility’s business.

The Canadian Electrical Code Part I gives electrical utilities an exemption from the code for "installations and equipment in its exercise as a utility, located outdoors or in buildings or sections of buildings used for that purpose." The CEC Part I is "a voluntary code for adoption and enforcement by regulatory authorities." When adopted into the provincial regulations, this exemption is almost always maintained for work that falls within the scope of an electrical utility’s business.

Over time, many electrical utilities have either developed their own design standards or use standards developed by others. Two CSA standards are often used as authoritative references for utility installations. These are CAN/CSA-C22.3 No. 1- M87 Overhead Systems and C22.3 No. 7-94 Underground Systems. In some instances, utility standards may meet or exceed electrical code requirements, or they may also fall short. One would hope that utility standards should satisfy minimum electrical safety requirements, especially for installations on private property.

In a brave new world of less regulation and greater competition, electrical utilities may want to take a closer look at their own design standards, to determine whether they should conform with the Canadian Electrical Code. In this article, we will look at some examples where the CEC Part III standards fail to meet the minimum safety requirements of the CEC Part I, and visit another issue that might affect electrical utilities as changes evolve.

Let’s begin by comparing some of the differences in high low and high voltage clearances. I will refer to the Canadian Electrical Code as CEC Part I and the CSA Part III overhead standards as CEC Part III. Both prescribe minimum horizontal and vertical clearances for a broad range of voltage classifications. As an aside, there are a few instances where the CEC Part I actually references CEC Part III when an installation strays beyond the parameters set out in the code. As a result, some paragraphs of CEC Part III actually become requirements of our electrical code.

For our first example, CEC Part I specifies a minimum vertical clearance of 4.0 m for low voltage service conductors across a residential driveway. This increases to 5.0 m when crossing the driveway to a commercial or industrial facility. Using the same example, CEC

Part III would require minimum clearances of 3.7 m for low voltage service conductors across a residential driveway, and 4.42 m crossing the driveway to a commercial or industrial facility. Obviously, there is some disparity between the two standards.

CEC Part I specifies a minimum vertical outdoor clearance of 7.0 m for 46 kV exposed live parts such as cable terminations, fuseholders and switches, located outside a substation fence. CEC Part III has different requirements for areas accessible only to pedestrians and where there is also access by vehicles. The comparable 46 kV CEC Part III clearances would be:

• 3.7 m – where accessible only to pedestrians

• 5.2 m – where also accessible to vehicles

Here there appears to be a major difference between these standards for the elevation of high voltage exposed live parts.

Horizontal clearances between power lines and buildings is another place where there are differences. CEC Part I, requires a minimum 3 m horizontal distance between 46 kV lines and buildings (still far too close in this writer’s opinion). However, CEC Part III goes even further. Here the minimum horizontal distance between 46 kV lines and buildings is 1.0 m plus conductor swing to "a normally inaccessible surface" and 1.8 m plus conductor swing to a

"readily accessible surface."

The CEC Part III definition of readily accessible is "that an object is accessible to persons without the use of special means" (for example, a ladder). The amount of conductor swing depends upon whether the line is considered to be sheltered from the wind. In the writer’s opinion, the horizontal clearances in both CEC Part I and Part III are both deficient.

However the CEC Part III requirements have a greater potential for problems and electrical accidents.

A further requirement of CEC Part I is calculating the 5000-volt maximum ground potential rise, and the step and touch voltages in substations. These are determined from the ground electrode resistance and the available ground-fault current. The first step normally involves ground resistivity measurement, then calculating the maximum step and touch potentials as specified in Table 52 of CEC Part I. Parameters for these calculations are found in the IEEE No. 80 substation grounding standard.

Ground potential rise can be calculated from station ground resistance and the available ground-fault current. Some electrical utilities are more interested in minimizing ground potential rise, since the GPR may affect any communications equipment installed in stations.

Step and touch potentials have also been identified as a safety issue and therefore should be considered as well.

For the reasons mentioned, electrical utility installations should comply with the Canadian Electrical Code Part I, particularly on customers’ property. As with previous articles, you should consult the electrical inspection authority in each province or territory as applicable, for a more precise interpretation of any of the above.

Always consult your local utility for their regulations regarding clearances or installation
