    Air conditioning work is quite expensive for the customer and time consuming for the repair shop. I would do very few air conditioning repairs without replacing the receiver dryer.

    Included in what? If you are talking about a warranty company not including it in a a/c repair, then that's a crap warranty company. Any time you open an a/c system you must replace the drier/accumulator. You can not do a/c work half#$%.
