Question How do you assess power conditioners?

Is there any general advice on when power conditioners should be replaced, or any easy way to test their condition? (pun intended)

I am currently overhauling my theater, to include taking down my old TV to put up a new one up. While I have easy access, I am wondering if I need to replace, or test, a 7 year old Sanus ELM205-B1 that otherwise appears to be working, but I wonder based on age.

Denon AVR-X8500H // 7.2.6 [SVS Ultra + PB-13 Ultra with STA-1200D upgrades + Klipsch CDT-5800-C II]
LG OLED77CX // Panasonic DP-UB9000 // Sony BDP-S570 (for SACDs) // Apple TV 4K

Unplug it overnight (bleed any energy for safety), open it, give it a good vacuum, that's all it needs. Replace fan(s) if any that look gummy.
