    I had a new high efficiency furnace installed that vents out the side of my house via 3 in pvc. I’m in the snow belt so no screen was put on the termination cap. They said it could cause condensate to collect and freeze restricting air flow.

    In the summer months I’d like to put a screen cap on to keep critters out. So with the furnace off and AC on does any exhaust come out of the vent pipe?
    Thanks
