If you want to keep the ac, you should really run it at least once a month for a minute or so to get the oil in the system moving around so the seals don't dry up, if you do this then it will last many years, this is why the ac on new cars comes on every time you start them, or comes on every time you us the defrost.
It's a pain to remove the under dash part of the ac, but the engine compartment stuff is easy and weighs around 35 pounds all together, removing the belt will show the biggest gain as v belts have alot of drag on their own.
