Mechanical Equipment - Live or Dead

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

I know this is a dumb question and I should know better, but let me ask it anyway:

 

Is a roof mounted A/C unit considered a Live or Dead Load?

Is it added to the existing Live Load or does it replace the live load normally applied to that location?
