I can actually get behind the wall and look. There is an access panel in the closet that goes in there but it's useless for the AC application. I don't thing it's a load bearing wall. It's not even 6 feet tall. The way the roof/ceiling pitches down leaves this a short wall. It's an inside wall leading to attic/crawl space. It is not an outside, roof supporting wall.
