Inverter AC on Shabbos

Question:
What does Rav Weiss hold regarding inverter AC on shabbos?

Answer:

An inverter AC may be used on Shabbos. A person who walks into the room has no intent to activate any device. The activation is not certain and is only done in an incidental way. This does not constitute Melacha on Shabbos.

See Shu”t Minchas Asher Vol. 1 Siman 32, Vol. 2 Siman 33
