how much would YOU charge?

this question is for HVAC techs who do jobs on their own time and get to charge what they believe is fair to both parties. how much would YOU charge to:

de-braze and remove indoor coil and dissasemble it outside to properly clean it with biodegradable cleaner, along with drain pan and drain lines of course

remove indoor blower motor and take it outside also to dissasemble and clean blower wheel and blower wheel assembly properly

remove fan motor panel from top of condenser to backwash condenser coil with pressurized water to get most of the dirt out

remove and install a liquid line filter drier in a easily accessible part of the liquid line

throw in a few drain tablets to prevent algae build up and replace indoor air filter

and then put everything back together and make sure that unit is working to the best of its abilities (i.e. checking pressures, temperatures, superheat, subcooling, supply and return differential, amperage @ compressor, etc.)

how much would you charge for such a service? give honest answers only please.
