Modern A/C units can last anywhere from 15-20 years depending on upkeep and maintenance. For older systems, while we have seen older units last 30+ years, typically these units are professionally and meticulously taken care of. Most older units will only last 10-12 years, depending on upkeep and maintenance.
That will be dependent on the age of the system and the condition of its parts. If the system is under 5 years old replacing individual parts is a viable option but as systems age, this option becomes less practical.
Ductwork lasts on average 10-15 years, remarkably similar to AC units. If your ductwork is over 15 years it is highly recommended to have a professional evaluate the system for risks such as pests, mold or dry rot.
Your A/C unit, just like your car, starts to degrade over time. The highly efficient unit you had 10 years ago most likely has lost a good portion of its original SEER rating due to basic wear and tear. If you notice a steady increase in your energy bills, your system has lost some of its effectiveness. Another sign of inefficiency is if your unit is running constantly or you start to notice inconsistent temperatures in some areas of your home. Generally speaking, if the unit is over 6 years old it is not running as efficiently as it once did.
