FIG. 3 is a plan sectional view showing the air conditioner 10 shown in FIG. 1 at a middle position in the vertical direction.

  As shown in FIGS. 2 and 3, in the casing 11, a plurality (a pair of left and right) centrifugal blowers 18 are arranged in a state where the rotation axis P is along the front-rear direction (that is, the depth direction of the casing 11). It arrange | positions so that each inlet 14 may be opposed separately. An air guide (also referred to as a bell mouth) 19 having an annular shape when viewed from the front is arranged between the suction port 14 and the centrifugal blower 18 facing each other so as to be coaxial with the centrifugal blowers 18. ing. Each air guide 19 is formed so as to have a divergent shape from the rear side on the centrifugal blower 18 side toward the front side on the suction port 14 side (that is, the front side in the depth direction of the casing 11). As shown in FIG. 2, the front end edge is fixed to the casing 11 by being fitted into and supported by the front panel 13 from the back side of the suction port 14. Each air guide 19 has a rear end edge formed to have a smaller diameter than the front end edge thereof and extends to the vicinity of the front end of the centrifugal blower 18, and the air flowing into the casing 11 from the suction port 14 is supplied to the centrifugal blower 18. It is designed to guide you smoothly.

  The centrifugal blower 18 includes a blade portion 22 including a hub 20 having a substantially disk shape and a plurality of arc-shaped blades 21 projecting forward from the front surface of the outer peripheral portion of the hub 20; And a motor 23 for rotating the blade portion 22. The centrifugal blower 18 has a centrifugal blow function that blows out air from the centrifugal blower 18 toward the centrifugal direction (radial direction) perpendicular to the rotation axis P by centrifugal force generated based on the rotational drive of the blade portion 22. The blade portion 22 has a contour shape (a shape in a front view) when viewed from the front side that is substantially the same as the opening shape of the rear edge of the air guide 19. Each centrifugal blower 18 has a support shaft projecting so that each motor 23 is fixed to the rear side wall surface of the casing 11 and the axis line coincides with the rotation axis P from the motor 23 toward the front. The blade | wing part 22 of each centrifugal blower 18 is rotatably supported by the front-end | tip part of 23a.

  In the casing 11 (casing body 12), a pair of left and right heat exchangers 24 are disposed on both the left and right sides of the centrifugal blower 18 so as to sandwich the centrifugal blower 18 from both the left and right sides. Each heat exchanger 24 is formed by stacking a plurality of fins 24a. In this embodiment, the stacking direction of the fins 24a in each heat exchanger 24 is parallel to a vertical plane including the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18. Has been placed. That is, each heat exchanger 24 is arranged so that the center of each heat exchanger 24 is positioned at an angular interval of 180 degrees with the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18 as the center. The heat exchangers 24 forming a pair are arranged in a plane-symmetric arrangement when the vertical plane including the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18 is a symmetry plane. And by setting it as such an arrangement | positioning aspect, each heat exchanger 24 partially overlaps with this centrifugal blower 18 in the direction orthogonal to the rotating shaft P of the centrifugal blower 18, respectively. In this embodiment, when the direction along the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18 is the depth direction, the entire length in the depth direction of the centrifugal blower 18 overlaps (overlaps) a part of the length in the depth direction of the heat exchanger 24. ).

  Further, in the casing 11 (casing body 12), an arcuate guide surface 25a is provided on the back surface side of the heat exchanger 24 when viewed from the centrifugal blower 18 on the surface facing the heat exchanger 24. Guide blocks 25 are respectively arranged. An air outlet passage 26 communicating with the outlet 15 is provided between each guide block 25 and each heat exchanger 24. Therefore, after the air blown in the radial direction from the centrifugal blower 18 passes between the fins 24a of the heat exchanger 24, the air blowing flow is along the guide surface 25a in the air blowing flow path 26. It will be guided smoothly toward the outlet 15.

Then, next, it demonstrates below about the effect | action in the air conditioner 10 of this embodiment comprised as mentioned above.
Now, when the blade portion 22 of the centrifugal blower 18 is rotationally driven based on the driving force of the motor 23, as indicated by an arrow A in FIG. It is sucked toward the blower 18. At that time, a large volume of air is smoothly guided from the suction port 14 into the centrifugal blower 18 along the inner surface of the air guide 19 that is widened toward the front. Then, the air flowing into the centrifugal blower 18 is blown out in the radial direction perpendicular to the rotation axis P as indicated by an arrow a in FIG. 3 by the centrifugal blower function of the centrifugal blower 18.

  Then, the air blown out from the centrifugal blower 18 passes between the fins 24a of the heat exchangers 24 arranged in parallel on the left and right sides of the centrifugal blower 18, and at that time, the refrigerant pipe 16 The temperature is adjusted (heated or cooled) by heat exchange with the refrigerant flowing in the heat exchanger 24 via the. Here, the heat exchangers 24 arranged on the left and right sides of the centrifugal blower 18 are arranged in a plane-symmetric manner when the vertical plane including the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18 is a symmetric plane. Therefore, the air volume distribution of the air that passes through each of the heat exchangers 24 and is blown out from the back surface of each of the heat exchangers 24 is substantially uniform on the left and right.

  Thereafter, the air blown out from the back surface of each heat exchanger 24 flows into an air blowing channel 26 formed between each heat exchanger 24 and the guide block 25. Then, in the air blowing channel 26, the air is a guide surface in which the direction of the air blowing flow is an arcuate surface formed on the inner surface side of the guide block 25 as shown by an arrow b in FIG. By 25a, it guides smoothly toward the blower outlet 15 of the front side. Therefore, the pressure loss of the air blowing flow in the air blowing channel 26 is suitably reduced.

  Then, the air guided to the air outlet 15 through the air outlet channel 26 is blown out of the casing 11 from the air outlet 15. That is, in the air conditioner 10 of the present embodiment, indoor air is sucked from the front side of the casing 11 and air whose temperature is adjusted is blown out from the front side of the casing 11 into the room. At that time, the temperature-adjusted air is blown out of the casing 11 from the outlets 15 provided on the left and right sides of the suction port 14 as indicated by an arrow B in FIG. It is blown out over a wide area.

  Further, when the air conditioner 10 is installed on the indoor wall surface W, as shown in FIGS. 1 and 3, the casing 11 (casing body 12) is fixed with the back surface facing the indoor wall surface W. Is done. Here, in the air conditioner 10 of the present embodiment, the centrifugal blower 18 and the heat exchanger 24 are not arranged in the front-rear direction in the depth direction of the air conditioner 10 in the casing 11 but are orthogonal to the depth direction. It is set as the arrangement | positioning aspect which overlaps partially in the left-right direction. Further, the centrifugal blower 18 and the heat exchanger 24 are not arranged in the casing 11 so as to overlap in the vertical direction. Therefore, the size of the air conditioner 10 in the front-rear direction and the up-down direction is compact. It is possible to install without impairing the performance.

According to the air conditioner 10 of the said embodiment, the following effects can be acquired.
(1) The centrifugal blower 18 and the heat exchanger 24 are not arranged in the casing 11 so as to overlap in the front-rear direction of the casing 11 (the depth direction of the air conditioner 10), but in the left-right direction orthogonal to the rotational axis P of the centrifugal blower 18. It is set as the arrangement | positioning aspect which overlaps. Therefore, it is possible to suitably respond to a request for downsizing (that is, thinning) in the depth direction of the air conditioner 10 listed to improve indoor interior properties. Moreover, when setting it as such an arrangement | positioning aspect, since the centrifugal blower 18 is not reduced in size, a required and sufficient air volume can be ensured and the performance as the air conditioner 10 does not fall.

  (2) Since the heat exchanger 24 is disposed in each of the left and right positions (plural positions) on the air blowing side of the centrifugal blower 18 in the casing 11, the air blown by the centrifugal blower 18 in the radial direction is left and right. Heat can be exchanged by the heat exchangers 24 on both sides, and the heat exchange efficiency can be improved.

  (3) A pair of heat exchangers 24 arranged so as to sandwich one centrifugal blower 18 from both sides are symmetrical in the left-right direction when the vertical plane including the rotation axis P of the centrifugal blower 18 is a symmetry plane. It is an arrangement mode. Therefore, after the temperature is adjusted by passing through each heat exchanger 24, the air volume distribution of the air blown out from each outlet 15 can be made uniform.

  (4) In addition, since the air blown from the back surface of the heat exchanger 24 and flows into the air blowing channel 26 can be smoothly guided to the outlet 15 side along the guide surface 25a of the guide block 25, the air blowing channel It is possible to reduce the pressure loss of the air blowing flow in the 26 as much as possible.

  (5) On the other hand, with respect to the air sucked from the suction port 14 toward the centrifugal blower 18 in the casing 11, the front side disposed between the centrifugal blower 18 and the suction port 14 has an air guide 19 having a widening end. Inflow guide into the centrifugal blower 18 can be made smoothly. Therefore, it is possible to satisfactorily reduce noise during air suction from the suction port 14 into the casing 11.

  (6) Moreover, in this embodiment, after adjusting the temperature of the air sucked from the suction port 14 provided on the front surface of the casing 11, the air outlet 15 provided on the front surface of the casing 11 similarly to the suction port 14. The air blowing direction is set so as to blow forward. Therefore, even when the wall-mounted air conditioner 10 is installed with the back surface of the casing 11 in contact with the indoor wall surface W, the air blowing direction is flexible in consideration of the surrounding environment such as curtain rails and ceiling surfaces. Can be installed in a simple manner.

  (7) In addition, in the case of a configuration in which front suction and front blowing are performed as in the air conditioner 10 of the present embodiment, the wall-mounted air conditioner 10 is an upper portion of the indoor wall surface W (ie, a position close to the ceiling). Even if it installs in, air suction and blowing are not restricted. Further, even when such a wall-mounted air conditioner 10 is installed in the vicinity of a window glass, for example, the air blowing direction does not follow the window glass. The possibility of changing the temperature by heat exchange can also be avoided.

  (8) A pair of air outlets 15 is provided for one air inlet 14 so as to sandwich the air inlet 14 from both sides, and the temperature-adjusted air is blown out from each air outlet 15. It has become. Therefore, the temperature-adjusted air can be blown out from the front surface of the casing 11 to the indoor side over a wide range.

  (9) Further, in the present embodiment, a plurality of air conditioning units (two in the left and right direction in the present embodiment) including the centrifugal blower 18, the heat exchanger 24, the guide block 25, and the like as described above are provided in the casing 11. . Then, air is sucked from the air inlets 14 of the air conditioning units, and the temperature of the air is adjusted and then blown out from the air outlets 15 of the air conditioning units. Therefore, by adjusting the number of the air conditioning units according to the environment (the size of the indoor space) where the air conditioner 10 is installed, it is possible to provide appropriate air conditioning performance corresponding to the installation environment conditions. .

The present embodiment may be changed to another embodiment (another example) as follows.
-For example, like the example 1 shown in FIG. 4, you may make it the heat exchanger 24 arrange | position at the up-and-down both sides of the centrifugal blower 18 in the casing 11 (casing main body 12).
