The breaker in the house electrical panel will protect you. If you forget and turn on more than 20 amps, it will just trip the breaker in the house panel.

I've been able to start my air conditioner, but come to think of it, nothing else was on.

Been doing that over a year now... Like said above, it'll run everything except the AC,, and you 'might' run that but with nothing else. Ours is plugged in year round to 20A when not being used.

Yes, you may be able to run the air conditioner, but I think most will agree typically not a good idea. Try it and feel the warmth of your extension cord...
