A/C require yearly tune-ups, if ignored the lifespan may be shorter than expected. Other attributes of a shortened A/C lifespan also depend on: how often you use the unit; humidity and how hot the area is where you live in; whether or not the unit was sized correctly when it was last replaced.
If your air conditioner was well kept and in good condition throughout its lifetime, expect the unit to be functioning for about 10-15 years. Nevertheless, keep in mind the mechanical parts of your A/C may become unavailable or obsolete overtime as A/C systems are constantly modernizing. If replacing a broken part isn’t an option, you will need to purchase a new unit.
