If i don't even use it at all, will my hardware's lifespan get shortened?

If i restart it every night, will my hardware's lifespan be saved?

I have always left my PC on 24/7 (for the last 25 to 30 years).
I have never had it cause a premature failure on any component.
I do upgrade about every 5 to 7 years.
 
I run 3 PC's currently and leave 2 of them on 24/7/365, the other one doesn't get used much so I leave that off unless I want to use it.

I have always ran my PCs 24/7/365 and never seen any sort of issues doing it.
