    It depends on the capacity of the air conditioner. The nameplate will state the amperage draw of the unit; I would use that figure as a breaker amperage, or slightly higher. For large size air conditioners, be sure the wires are the right gauge wire from the breaker panel. Larger size air conditioners should have a separate outlet, wiring, and breaker for just that device.
