    I agree, I've taken out screens on intake pipes due to frost build up.

    Well I've taken rodents, birds, and bugs out of intake and exhaust pipes because of no screens so I guess we cancel each other out. Anyways, they are required by code in my area, as is the purple pvc cleaner I had previously mentioned.

    Bugs, birds, rodents, might be found in teh fall.

    Frozen screens happen when it cold out. Customers are not less happy theni n teh fall when it was 50 outside.

    We pull the screens after inspection.

    I was actually wondering about screens or protection of some sort, after the install. I looked at a few others in adjacent houses, none of which had screens either, so I just figured "eh, I guess that's how it is!" lol
