Does the power consumed by an air conditioner adds to the total heat generation in a server room?

I have to size up the air conditioning in my server room. I have calculated a total load of all the power consuming equipment in my server room, i.e. servers, networking devices, SAN, lighting, UPS, and PDUs. Since the air conditioner also consumes electrical power to run, should the wattage consumption of the AC contribute to the heat generation in the server room?
