Can an air conditioner last 25 years?

While every unit is different and every homeowner has a different idea of when their central air conditioner breaks down irreparably, it's fair to say that, with proper maintenance and care, you can expect 15-20 years of cooling with a new, high-efficiency air conditioning system. Air conditioners can last between 10 and 15 years, depending on several factors, while air conditioning systems can even last up to 30 years before needing to be replaced.
