Default Heater Exhaust

Hi, I have a trane heater installed in my attic and have been experiencing pressure switch errors. I took apart the exhaust and removed bird droppings, bugs, nests, etc. and the problem seems solved. Since this is something I may have to do again, can I use unions on the pvc exhaust for easier disassembly? Thanks.

Is this a 90+ furnace with pvc pipe?
If so you can just use a rubber coupling with the clamps. Paul
