furnishings in a room being let?

I have a situation in which an older woman is renting out a room in a large US city, probably Chicago, but I'm not absolutely certain about that yet. Present-day.
The woman is probably in her 60's or 70's, and lives alone - she's renting out the spare room both for a little extra cash and because she's just a bit lonely. It's an old guest bedroom.
Given the situation, i expect it's reasonable that she would leave the basic furniture in the room - especially since she couldn't exactly move it out herself, and has nowhere to put it anyway. But would she also leave sheets/curtains/rugs in the room?
I understand this is largely a "writer's choice" sort of question, but opinions are awesomely helpful.

Another related question - habitat-for-humanity type housing from about twenty years ago (by which i mean it's a small, very standardised house in a low-income suburban area). Is it likely to have central air conditioning? What about central heating?

TIA.
