i have cust that leave a/c on from the day they bought it. the only thing that will decreae compressor life if done continuesly is turning a/c on while driving at high rpm.
no. it should not effect any thing at all. i live in a cold environment(-40c in the winter). standard practice to have my heat turned up during warm up. never effect anything.
