Garmaine Staff asked 2 years ago

I have recently purchased a new AC. I opened it to clean air filters and found that an entire row of fins were bent. I asked the manufacturer about this and they said that it won't affect the performance or life of the AC. They say that this is normal and most of their new ACs have their fins bent like this.
I'm thinking of combing them to make them straight again. Will this damage the evaporator coil?
