Air Conditioning Circuit

I plan on installing a new circuit for and air-conditioner. The Amp
rating of the air-conditioner is 15 Amps, 5000BTU's. My circuit
breaker box is located in the rear of the basement.

The circuit that I want to create is in a third floor apt. It is about
40 feet to the front of the house and about another 30-35 feet
up to the third floor.

I am going to put in a 20 amp circuit breaker and use 12 gauge

My question is this. Will the wiring handle the load for that dis-tance? Or will I have to use heavier wiring.

Thank you

The distance will be no problem.
