Safe Vent Screen UsageOur 2″ rodent vent screen is designed to protect your high efficiency furnace, power vent hot water heater or boiler’s venting system from unwanted pests and debris. Constructed with a 316 stainless steel mesh screen, which is encased in a 6061-T6 aluminum shell, means that this PVC vent screen is built to last and will resist corrosion.

Installation of the PVS-RS2 takes less than thirty seconds and will guard intake and exhaust vents from chipmunks, squirrels, mice, moles and birds. The PVS-RS2 also maintains a 90% airflow rating, which exceeds NFPA (National Fire Protection Association) minimum airflow standards and many high efficiency appliance manufacturer (OEM) recommendations for winter use. Additionally, all PVS series vent screens install inside vent termination hubs where they are shielded from debris, rain and snow. The in-hub installation of the PVS-RS2 also places it closer to the heat source on exhaust terminations, which is preferred by professionals for winter use in the coldest regions of North America.

Some outdoor animals, such as chipmunks or ground squirrels, have a habit of storing nuts, seeds and other foods inside PVC pipes. Additionally, there are many cases where the inside of furnaces have stopped functioning as nuts and debris become so large that the restricted airflow results in the unit malfunctioning. The PVS-RS2 eliminates these specific types of problems and also the repair bills associated with calling not just a plumber or HVAC professional, but possibly a pest control specialist too.

Though the PVS-RS2 offers year round protection against rodents and debris, our PVS-IS2 provides insect protection as well. Guarding furnace intake and exhaust vents from bees, wasps and other insects is important during warmer temperatures since unseen nests inside appliances and vent pipes will create restrictions that reduce the net airflow rating available during winter. We therefore recommend the PVS-IS2 be used on furnace vent terminations during spring, summer and fall so the PVS-RS2 has its full 90% airflow rating available during winter.

Please visit our best practices page to learn more about properly balancing seasonal vent protection needs with high efficiency appliance ventilation requirements. If you need assistance in determining the size of your existing vents, please visit our vent size page for additional help. In addition to pictures, a video demonstration is available that will show you which dimensions need to be taken to assure that the PVS-RS2 vent screen will fit properly.
