Turning down the air conditioner on Shabbat


If one's air conditioner is making one's home unbearably cold on Shabbat, one may have a non-Jew turn it off. This is because one is not expected to leave his home [as opposed to a synagogue], and because all are considered 'ill' when it comes to cold temperatures.

(Rav Moshe Feinstein, Igrot Moshe Orach Chaim 3:42)

Have a great day,
