Air Conditioner Fins - Once they are smashed, like by hail - can they be repaired? The traditional view is that Air Conditioner Fins can be combed out; however, with the tiny and thin fins now a part of Air Conditioning Systems, it is becoming known that there is 'no repair' to bring them back to where they were before the hail event efficiency wise. This is because the air conditioning unit is permanently damaged and its efficiency will not be able to be re-established. The 'condenser units', in their entirety have to be replaced. Can you provide specifics as an engineer would relate to regarding the specifics of this matter, either pro or con? (Please avoid generalities or generally known surface information... thank you.) Do you know of any legal cases where this has been litigated?

Take paperclip or popsicle stick. Bend a few of the fins back to their original position. Get magnifying glass and look at the "repaired" fins for cracks. If there are no cracks heat transfer will be the same as it was. If there are cracks, the heat will not jump the gap and heat transfer will be much less. If the unit has not been serviced in a while, other things like loss of refrigerent or dirty housing and fan could be the root cause.
