I see them all the time in the greater Philadelphia area, sometimes even in high rise condos (all the units have them!). I tell them to replace them for all of the above reasons. Agents do give me grief for it sometimes, i just tell them that I put my professional opinion in the report and then they can do as they feel fit.
