Abstract (en)

To improve heating performance almost without the feeling of draft. An air conditioner (1) comprises an indoor unit (2) and an outdoor unit (3) coupled to the indoor unit via a refrigerant circuit. The indoor unit (2) includes: a heat exchanger (20) and a radiation panel (22) each having a part of pipes constituting the refrigerant circuit; and a fan (21) disposed in the vicinity of the heat exchanger (20). The air conditioner (1) is capable of: a hot-air heating operation for performing hot-air heating by introducing a refrigerant into the heat exchanger (20), not into the radiation panel (22); a radiation heating operation for performing the hot-air heating by introducing the refrigerant into the heat exchanger (20) and performing radiation heating by introducing the refrigerant into the radiation panel (22); and a radiation breeze heating operation for performing the hot-air heating by introducing the refrigerant into the heat exchanger (20) and performing the radiation heating by introducing the refrigerant into the radiation panel (22), while reducing the amount of air blown by the fan (21) less than in the radiation heating operation and the hot-air heating operation.
