glow plugs

I have a 2000 f250 powerstroke 7.3 and it seems that it takes longer to have the idiot light for starting go off for starting. Do I need to change the glow plugs and will this make it heat up faster

There is a good sticky thread on here that covers all of this. Reading it I learned that the plugs still warm up for about 2 min after the light goes off. I started doing this and It does start alot easier when it is cold.
