Screen for hot water heater vent, etc

I looked at the pre-made screens for the various vents. Kind of expensive by the time I cover all the vents. So I thought I could make my own. I went to Ace Hardware. All they had was window screen (small holes) and hardware cloth (holes too big). I was comparing the size to pre-made ones that can be purchased. Does it hurt the air flow to use the metal window screen?
Those of you that have made their own, what size screen holes would be best to use?

I used regular aluminum window screen on our fridge vents. Hot glued to the rear.
