I let it sit at least overnight and, more frequently, around 24 hours. If I ever top up the tank with water right out of the tap, I use water conditioner, but mostly I just let it sit.

I would not use that water for fish. Air conditioner water tends to be full of bacteria. For plants, it's fine (soil is full of other bacteria) but I would not use it in an aquarium.
