The extension springs are an older and cheaper model of a spring which is an often used system . They are located at both sides of the door and are mounted on the extension spring's swing arms. It is also more inexpensive  compared to the torsion spring.

Torsion or Torque springs are twisting steel which retains the force in the  twist of the internal bar. If you think of the old fashioned mouse trap you have  the idea. The power is created by twisting the mouse trap under pressure. The  torsion spring's force is proportional to how the torque in the twist.   This is usually an enclosed unit and thus safer than the loose spring. Torsion  springs are located at the upper section of the door and are usually mounted on  the door header. This kind of spring will be the far stronger of the two and can  lift a weight up to 500 lbs. It has a lifespan of approximate 20,000 lifts.
