Window sprial balance replacement

A quick learner says:
Trying to figure which sprial balance I need. I live in the Fawn Hollow development in Burlington, the homes were built in 1997. Some of my windows are becoming tough to open. How do I know which sprial balance I need? Dia? Series? Height? Thank you for your help.

There are many factors that go into figuring out a spiral balance Series. I recommend visiting our spiral balance home page and simply following the steps shown to determine the best match for what's installed in your window.
A quick learner says:
Step 2 is measuring the spiral balance diameter. It doesn't tell me how t measure it or if it has to be taken out of the window to measure it.

You will need to remove your balance from the window to accurately measure its diameter, yes. I recommend measuring the very top with a tape measurer.
