An engineer for one of our products said as little as a tenth of an inch of dust can reduce your furnace's efficiency by as much as 20%. That is a staggering number when you think about how little an amount of dust that is! The reason being is the blades on those blower wheels are specially designed to push a certain amount of air. Any dirt on those blades will cause the blower motor (direct drive motor which spins the wheel) to work harder, drawing more amperage (costing you more money) and pushing less air to keep the desired RPM. It also causes the heat exchanger to run hotter in your furnace which ultimately lower the lifespan.
No! Occasionally a blower wheel will get so dirty that the furnace or air conditioner will not operate at all! The heat exchanger relies on the cooler air moving across it to keep it from over heating, as does an air conditioning coil relying on the warmer air to keep it from freezing! If they do not receive the right amount of air movement they will fail, eventually costing you a service call.
Very simple! Change your filter often and keep your ducts clean.
