The information about the vent screens was quite detailed and impressive. It was interesting to learn that the size of the vent screen could prevent Embers from entering a house. I Wonder if existing houses could upgrade their vent screens?

Marlene Broemer,  
Of course you can change your vent screens. You still have to allow for air flow but 1/8 in or even 1/16in screens is what is being recomended to prevent embers from going in. 5ft around the home of non-combustable items like crushed rock instead of mulch really does help with the risk as well.
