On Timer Effect on Performance?

If I use an On Timer action to trigger an event once certain conditions are met, does that slow down the performance of the course (since it has to keep repeatedly checking for those conditions)? Does it make a difference what interval I use? In other words, if I have the timer action checking every .5 seconds, will that tend to cause more performance issues than if I have it check every 1 second?

I've been trying some new, potentially "neater," approaches to some old situations, which has led me to finally embrace the use of the On Timer action. But I want to make sure that this doesn't cause new problems that would make me want to go back to the old approaches...
