Residential maintenance agreements have a lot going for them, but they especially help with controlling the single biggest contributor to HVAC problems: clogged air filters!
In short? Yes. When dust, dander, and debris plug up your home’s filter, the airflow into the system is restricted. This forces your furnace to work overtime, trying to compensate for the lack of air. If you’re wondering what that might feel like, try breathing through a thick pillow; it’s pretty much exactly the same thing.
Your whole system is based on the movement of air from one part of your house to another. It’s a continuous cycle managed by a variety of mechanical components, but primarily by the air handler. Your air handler will begin to struggle, drawing in more power and driving up your utility bill.
Then your heat exchanger is going to have a real problem. It relies on a minimum amount of airflow for safe operation; without it, the system can overheat and shut down too quickly. This means your house doesn’t get warm (or cool) as quickly as it should. Or at all.
