Experiments demonstrated the effects on air-conditioner system performance resulting from dents in fins of their condenser coils and the extent to which conventional fin repair methods restore performance. Two different, commercially available, split-system, residential-type air-conditioners were tested. Flattening substantial areas of the fins caused a reduction in capacity and efficiency of the cooling systems tested. Performance first dropped appreciably when 60% of the fin areas weredoi:10.1115/imece2007-41518 fatcat:mvevep7emfecdpwxaqb3535ykq
