    Mode for the Invention



    [0033] Hereinafter, embodiments, some of which are according to the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings.

    [0034] Prior to description, reference numerals are given as numerals according to configuration and alphabets according to embodiments in order to distinguish a plurality of embodiments.

    [0035] FIG. 1 is a view showing an air conditioner 10a according to a first embodiment not according to the present invention, however helpful for understanding some of the features of the invention as defined in the claims.

    [0036] The air conditioner 10a performs an air conditioning operation with respect to a localized region within an air-conditioned space 1 to be air-conditioned. That is, the air conditioning operation is intensively performed with respect to the localized region rather than the whole of the air-conditioned space 1.

    [0037] The air conditioner 10a may be provided to be movable. That is, a handle portion (not shown) is movably provided in a main body 11a so that the air conditioner 10a may be movable to a required position within the air-conditioned space 1. According to an embodiment of the present invention, the air conditioner 10a may discharge air-conditioned discharge air only to a predetermined space, and thereby may be provided to be miniaturized.

    [0038] FIG. 1b is a perspective view showing an air conditioner 10a according to the first embodiment.

    [0039] The air conditioner 10a includes the main body 11a, a heat exchanger 20a, and an expansion device 26a. The heat exchanger 20a may include a condenser 24a and an evaporator 22a.

    [0040] The main body 11a is provided to form an appearance thereof. The main body 11a may be formed by a plurality of appearance panels forming an appearance thereof. The main body 11a may have a substantially hexahedral shape, and provided to partition an inner structure and the outside.

    [0041] The appearance panel includes left and right panels 12a and 13a forming left and right surfaces thereof, a front panel 14a forming a front surface thereof, a rear panel 15a forming a rear surface thereof, and upper and lower panels 16a and 17a formed on upper and lower portions thereof.

    [0042] The main body 11a may include a suction port 30a for introducing air from the outside and a discharge port 40a for discharging air inside the main body 11a to the outside.

    [0043] The main body 11a may include a first main body 110a and a second main body 120a. The first main body 110a and the second main body 120a may be partitioned. Specifically, the first main body 110a and the second main body 120a may be partitioned so as to prevent air from flowing between the first main body 110a and the second main body 120a. In the main body 11a, a partition wall 130a for separating the first main body 110a and the second main body 120a may be provided.

    [0044] The first main body 110a may function as an indoor unit of a split type air conditioner, and include the evaporator 22a and a first blowing fan 51a which will be described later. The main body 120a may function as an outdoor unit of the split type air conditioner, and include the condenser 24a and a second blowing fan 52a which will be described later. However, the first main body 110a may function as the outdoor unit and the second main body 120a may function as the indoor unit. The evaporator 22a is arranged inside the first main body 110a, and thereby the inside of the first main body 110a may be referred to as an evaporation space 111a, and the condenser 24a is arranged inside the second main body 120a and thereby the inside of the second main body 120a may be referred to as a condensation space 121a.

    [0045] A compressor 28a compresses a refrigerant into a high temperature and high pressure state to discharge the compressed refrigerant, and the compressed refrigerant flows into the condenser 24a. The condenser 24a condenses the refrigerant compressed by the compressor 28a into a liquid phase. Heat is emitted to the surroundings through a condensation process.

    [0046] The expansion device 26a may expand a liquid refrigerant in the high temperature and high pressure state condensed by the condenser 24a into a liquid refrigerant in a low pressure state, and the evaporator 22a may evaporate the refrigerant expanded by the expansion device 26a while attaining refrigeration effects by heat exchange with an object to be cooled using evaporation latent heat of the refrigerant and allow the refrigerant in a low temperature and low pressure state to return to the compressor 28a.

    [0047] The compressor 28a may be provided to be heavy, and thereby arranged in a lower portion inside the main body 11a. Thus, the overall center of gravity of the air conditioner 10a is positioned downward, so that the air conditioner 10a may be stably supported.

    [0048] The air conditioner 10a according to the present embodiment is to perform air conditioning with respect to a predetermined region rather than the whole of the air-conditioned space 1, and therefore a compression date of the refrigerant may be provided to be smaller compared to the air conditioner 10a to perform air conditioning with respect to the whole of the air-conditioned space 1. That is, power consumption of the compressor 28a applied to the air conditioner 10a according to the present invention may be smaller than that of the compressor 28a of the air conditioner 10a to perform air conditioning with respect to the whole of the air-conditioned space 1. According to the present embodiment, the power consumption of the compressor 28a is provided to be smaller than 300 W. Thus, the air conditioner 10a may perform air conditioning with respect to the predetermined region of the air-conditioned space 1.

    [0049] In the first main body 110a, a first suction port 31a through which external air is introduced and a first discharge port 41a through which the air introduced through the first suction port 31a is discharged may be provided. In the second main body 120, a second suction port 32a through which external air is introduced and a second discharge port 42a through which the air introduced through the second suction port 32a is discharged may be provided.

    [0050] The air conditioner 10a according to the present embodiment performs air conditioning with respect to the predetermined region of the air-conditioned space 1, and therefore the first discharge port 41a and the second discharge port 42a are arranged within the same air-conditioned space 1. That is, air cooled through the evaporator 22a is discharged through the first discharge port 41a, air heated through the condenser 24a is discharged through the second discharge port 42a, and the first discharge port 41a and the second discharge port 42a are arranged within the same air-conditioned space 1. In an operation process of the air conditioner 10a, the first discharge port 41a is allowed to face a predetermined region in the air-conditioned space 1, and therefore air conditioning may be performed with respect to the corresponding region.

    [0051] The first discharge port 41a and the second discharge port 42a may be arranged so as to be spaced apart from each other. That is, the air discharged from the first discharge port 41a and the air discharged from the second discharge port 42a may be prevented from being mixed together. In addition, the first discharge port 41a and the second discharge port 42a are spaced apart from each other, so that the air discharged from the second discharge port 42a may be arranged so as not to affect the predetermined region on which air conditioning is to be performed.

    [0052] Specifically, the first discharge port 41a may be provided in any one of the plurality of appearance panels, and the second discharge port 42a may be provided in another one of the plurality of appearance panels. In the present embodiment, the first discharge port 41a may be arranged in the front panel 14a and the second discharge port 42a may be arranged in the rear panel 15a so that the air discharged from the first discharge port 41a and the air discharged from the second discharge port 42a are provided so as not to affect each other. That is, when it is assumed that an air flow of the air discharged from the first discharge port 41a is first discharge air 410a and an air flow of the air discharged from the second discharge port 42a is second discharge air 420a, the first discharge port 41a and the second discharge port 42a may be provided in such a manner that the first discharge air 410a and the second discharge air 420a are discharged so as not to interfere with each other.

    [0053] The air conditioner 10a may include a blowing fan 50a.

    [0054] The blowing fan 50a is arranged adjacent to the heat exchanger 20a so that air heat-exchanged with the heat exchanger 20a is allowed to flow in and out. Specifically, the blowing fan 50a includes the first blowing fan 51a arranged adjacent to the evaporator 22a and the second blowing fan 52a arranged adjacent to the condenser 24a.

    [0055] The first blowing fan 51a discharges air that is introduced into the air-conditioned space 1 to be heat-exchanged with the evaporator 22a to a predetermined region of the air-conditioned space 1 through the first discharge port 41a, and the second blowing fan 52a discharges air that is introduced into the air-conditioned space 1 to be heat-exchanged with the condenser 24a to the air-conditioned space 1 through the second discharge port 42a.

    [0056] The type of the blowing fan 50a is not limited, and may include at least one of a cross-flow fan, a sirocco fan, and a propeller fan. In the present embodiment, the cross-flow fan may be applicable as the first blowing fan 51a and the propeller fan may be applicable as the second blowing fan 52a, but the present invention is not limited thereto. Thus, other types of fans may be applicable.

    [0057] In the present embodiment, the main body 11a is provided to have a slim shape in a front and back direction. That is, when it is assumed that the front panel 14a and the rear panel 15a are first surfaces 18a, and the left panel 12a, the right panel 13a, the upper panel, and the lower panel are second surfaces 19a, the main body 11a includes a pair of first surfaces 18a facing each other and the second surfaces 19a each having a smaller area than that of the first surface 18a between the pair of first surfaces 18a. The condenser 24a and the evaporator 22a may be arranged side by side with the first surface 18a. The main body 11a may have a slim shape in the front and back direction, and therefore the condenser 24a and the evaporator 22a may be arranged substantially side by side with each other.

    [0058] In the present embodiment, the evaporator 22a and the condenser 24a may be vertically arranged. Thus, the first main body 110a and the second main body 120a may be vertically arranged. The evaporator 22a and the condenser 24a are vertically arranged side by side and condensed water generated from the evaporator 22a falls down to the condenser 24a, so that heat exchange efficiency in the condenser 24a may be improved.

    [0059] The first blowing fan 51a may be provided inside the first main body 110a, and discharge the air heat-exchanged with the evaporator 22a through the first discharge port 41a to the predetermined region of the air-conditioned space 1.

    [0060] The second blowing fan 52a may be provided inside the second main body 120a and discharge the air heat-exchanged with the condenser 24a through the second discharge port 42a to the air-conditioned space 1. The first blowing fan 51a and the second blowing fan 52a allow the air discharged from the inside of the main body 11a to blow in mutually different directions, and therefore the air discharged by the first blowing fan 51a and the second blowing fan 52a may be prevented from being mixed together.

    [0061] Hereinafter, an air conditioner 10b according to a second embodiment will be described.

    [0062] Prior to description, reference numerals are given as numerals according to configuration and alphabets according to embodiments in order to distinguish a plurality of embodiments. Thus, even when the alphabets are different, reference numerals having the same numerals may have the same configuration. Descriptions of reference numerals in embodiments which will be described below are the same as those of the reference numerals of the above-described embodiment. Thus, repeated description with respect to the above-described embodiment will be omitted. In the second embodiment unlike the first embodiment, the end of each reference numeral is given as "b".

    [0063] FIG. 2 is a perspective view showing an air conditioner according to a second embodiment.

    [0064] In the present embodiment, the type of a blowing fan 50b and a blowing direction are different from those in the first embodiment.

    [0065] In the present embodiment, a main body 11b is provided to have a slim shape in a front and back direction. That is, when it is assumed that a front panel 14b and a rear panel 15b are first surfaces 18b, and a left panel 12b, a right panel 13b, an upper panel, and a lower panel are second surfaces 19b, the main body 11b includes a pair of first surfaces 18b facing each other and second surfaces 19b each having a smaller area than that of the first surface 18b between the pair of first surfaces 18b.

    [0066] In the present embodiment, both a first blowing fan 51b and a second blowing fan 52b may be formed as a sirocco fan.

    [0067] Both a first suction port 31b and a second suction port 32b may be provided in the rear panel 15b. A first discharge port 41b and a second discharge port 42b may be respectively provided in the left panel 12b and the right panel 13b. Through this structure, first discharge air 410b and second discharge air 420b are prevented from interfering with each other. However, positions of a suction port 30b and a discharge port 40b are not limited thereto.

    [0068] Hereinafter, an air conditioner 10c according to a third embodiment will be described.

    [0069] Repeated description with respect to the above-described embodiments will be omitted. In the third embodiment unlike the first embodiment, the end of each reference numeral is given as "c".

    [0070] FIG. 3 is a perspective view showing an air conditioner according to a third embodiment.

    [0071] In the present embodiment, arrangement of components is different from that in the first embodiment.

    [0072] In the present embodiment, a main body 11c may be provided to have a slim shape in a front and back direction. That is, when it is assumed that a front panel 14c and a rear panel 15c are first surfaces 18c and a left panel 12c, a right panel 13c, an upper panel, and a lower panel are second surfaces 19c, the main body 11c includes a pair of first surfaces 18c facing each other and second surfaces 19c each having a smaller area than that of the first surface 18c between the pair of first surfaces 18c.

    [0073] In the present embodiment, an evaporator 22c and a condenser 24c may be arranged on right and left sides. Thus, in the present embodiment, a first main body 110c and a second main body 120c may be arranged on right and left sides. The evaporator 22c and the condenser 24c may be arranged side by side on right and left sides. In the evaporator 22c, condensed water is generated on the surface of the evaporator 22c in a heat exchange process, and the surface of the condenser 24c is wet with the generated condensed water using a drain pump (not shown), thereby improving heat exchange efficiency in the condenser 24c.

    [0074] Both a first blowing fan 51c and a second blowing fan 52c may be formed as a propeller fan. A first suction port 31c may be provided in the rear panel 15c, a first discharge port 41c may be provided in the front panel 14c, and the first blowing fan 51c may be disposed between the first suction port 31c and the first discharge port 41c.
