What is the depreciable life of HVAC?
If the AC unit were a removable window unit, then you could use 5 years, since the window unit could be considered an appliance. But if the "AC/furnace" is part of the structure and is what is called "central heat and air", then the unit is part of the structure itself, and must be depreciated over 27.5 years.
