Jewish Festivals: Adjusting Air Conditioner Temperatures

On Jewish festivals, you may:
  • Lower the temperature when an air conditioner compressor is running, and
  • Raise the temperature when the compressor is off.
Note You may do so ONLY with an analog control; not with a digital control. 
Reason Grama is permissible on Jewish festivals (but not on Shabbat).
