Halacha - Shabbos
Submitted by Tzvi  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question: Is one allowed to hang a towel over the front of the Air Conditioner if he is bothered by AC blowing on him(not by the cold)? Almost always this will cause AC to eventually turn off in since the temperature under the towel will reach the AC setting.

It would be permitted because the A/C turning off is an indirect delayed reaction to the person's action and would be considered grama. Furthermore, the person has no intention of turning off the A/C, only preventing it from blowing directly on him.
