help on sash window spring adjustment

first time I have done this, so I probably not doing this correctly. I need help in someone telling me how to adjust the spring tensioner on a sash window. My windows have the spring and the tension is set to tight. When I open the windows they was to spring halfway open. This puts alot of pressure on the lock when closed and the bottom sash will not seal properly on meeting window frame because the spring tension is forcing it up. HELP

We need a description of the type of balance you have. Some are adjustable, others are not. These are the most common types: Window Balances
The Spiral Balances are adjustable.
