    floor return, will items drop in?

    Hi,
    I have my new york modulating installed. At least so far it is wonderful. The install guy who i've used before and trust, installed an additional return---on the floor. I realize exact placement isn't important, and that fact the other returns are high doesn't bother me. But is a return on the floor more likely to have crap (coins come to mind) dropped into it, or knocked into it? There is just a regular grate. It seems like there should be a cheese cloth or something to stop small objects?

    Something could drop into it. Just need to keep small items away from it.

    How many times must one fix something before it is fixed?

    Does a train run on tracks?

    And no, I would not recommend cheese cloth. A good filter would be advised.

    Even if a couple coins fall in they won't find there way into anywhere dangerous unless its a horizontal furnace with no filter.
