The hood member 82 has a warm air guide surface 81a on the inner side. During the heating operation, the conditioned air blown out by the indoor fan 26 is warm and therefore tends to flow upward. However, it collides with the warm air guide surface 81a, so that it tends to flow downward.

  The guide rail 83 is a rail extending from the front grill 20 to the lower part of the drain pan 28, and accommodates the hood member 82.

  The support member 84 is a member that supports the hood member 82. The support member 84 is connected to the second tip portion 82a of the hood member 82 with a pin. A driven gear 85 is formed on the third tip portion 84a of the support member 84 that is not connected to the hood member 82, and a drive gear 86 is provided in the vicinity of the third tip portion 84a. When the driven gear 85 and the drive gear 86 are engaged with each other, and the drive gear 86 is rotated by the motor 87, the heating projecting member 81 can move. The specific operation of the heating projecting member 81 will be described in detail later.

<Operation of air conditioner 1>
Next, the operation of the air conditioner 1 will be described. Note that these operations are performed by a control unit (not shown) that controls various devices of the air conditioner 1.

  As the operation mode of the air conditioner 1, there is a normal operation mode in which various devices of the outdoor unit 4 and the indoor unit 2 are mainly controlled according to the operation load of the indoor unit 2. The normal operation mode includes a cooling operation and a heating operation.

(1) Cooling Operation First, the cooling operation in the normal operation mode will be described with reference to FIG.

  During the cooling operation, the four-way switching valve 43 is in the state indicated by the solid line in FIG. 1, that is, the discharge side of the compressor 42 is connected to the gas side of the outdoor heat exchanger 40 and the suction side of the compressor 42 is the indoor heat. It is in a state connected to the gas side of the exchanger 27.

  When the compressor 42 and the outdoor fan 45 are activated, the low-pressure gas refrigerant is sucked into the compressor 42 and compressed to become a high-pressure gas refrigerant. Thereafter, the high-pressure gas refrigerant is sent to the outdoor heat exchanger 40 via the four-way switching valve 43, exchanges heat with the outdoor air supplied by the outdoor fan 45, and is condensed to form a high-pressure liquid refrigerant. Become. The high-pressure liquid refrigerant is decompressed by the expansion valve 44 to become a low-pressure gas-liquid two-phase refrigerant, and is sent to the indoor unit 2 via the liquid-side closing valve 46 and the communication pipe 10.

  The low-pressure gas-liquid two-phase refrigerant sent to the indoor unit 2 is sent to the indoor heat exchanger 27 where it is evaporated by exchanging heat with the indoor air in the indoor heat exchanger 27 to become a low-pressure gas refrigerant. .

  The low-pressure gas refrigerant is sent to the outdoor unit 4 via the communication pipe 10 and flows into the accumulator 41 via the gas-side closing valve 47 and the four-way switching valve 43. Then, the low-pressure gas refrigerant that has flowed into the accumulator 41 is again sucked into the compressor 42.

(2) Heating operation Next, the heating operation in the normal operation mode will be described.

  During the heating operation, the four-way switching valve 43 is in the state indicated by the broken line in FIG. 1, that is, the discharge side of the compressor 42 is connected to the gas side of the indoor heat exchanger 27 and the suction side of the compressor 42 is the outdoor heat. It is connected to the gas side of the exchanger 40.

  When the compressor 42 and the outdoor fan 45 are activated, the low-pressure gas refrigerant is sucked into the compressor 42 and compressed to become a high-pressure gas refrigerant, and the four-way switching valve 43, the gas-side shut-off valve 47, and the communication pipe 10. Is sent to the indoor unit 2 via.

  The high-pressure gas refrigerant sent to the indoor unit 2 is condensed by exchanging heat with indoor air in the indoor heat exchanger 27, and then becomes a high-pressure liquid refrigerant. Sent to machine 4.

  This high-pressure liquid refrigerant is reduced in pressure by the expansion valve 44 via the liquid-side closing valve 46 to become a low-pressure gas-liquid two-phase refrigerant and flows into the outdoor heat exchanger 40. The low-pressure gas-liquid two-phase refrigerant flowing into the outdoor heat exchanger 40 exchanges heat with the outdoor air supplied by the outdoor fan 45 to evaporate into a low-pressure gas refrigerant. And flows into the accumulator 41.

  Hereinafter, operations of the cooling projection member 80 and the heating projection member 81 that function during the cooling operation and the heating operation, respectively, will be described.

<Operation of Projecting Member 80 for Cooling and Projecting Member 81 for Heating>
(1) Operation of cooling projection member 80 A rack formed on the cooling projection member 80 meshes with a pinion gear provided below the cooling projection member 80, and the pinion gear is driven by the motor. As a result, the cooling projecting member 80 moves.

  Specifically, the cooling projecting member 80 is accommodated along the lower edge of the main casing 200 when the air conditioner 1 is heated or stopped (see FIG. 3). When switched, the first tip 80b (referring to the tip of the two tips located on the inside of the room) passes along the lower edge of the main body casing 200 and passes through the front grill 20 toward the room. Move so that it protrudes. Finally, the cooling projecting member 80 stops in a state of projecting into the upper space in the vicinity of the curved surface 20b (see FIG. 2), and causes the conditioned air blown out from the outlet 21b to flow downward. The curved surface 20b that functions as described above is prevented from functioning. Here, the state in which the cooling projecting member 80 projects into the upper space in the vicinity of the curved surface 20b means that the conditioned air blown from the outlet 21b does not flow downward along the curved surface 20b. From the position where the end surface of the cooling projection member 80 which is not on the first tip end portion 80b side contacts the lowest point of the curved surface 20b, the first tip end portion 80b of the cooling projection member 80. It means a state in which the non-side end protrudes into any space up to a position where it abuts on the uppermost position of the curved surface 20b.

The cooling projecting member 80 that protrudes to the indoor side during the cooling operation of the air conditioner 1 is stopped when the operation of the air conditioner 1 is stopped or switched to the heating operation, as shown in FIG. It returns to the state accommodated along the inner lower edge.

(2) Operation of heating projection member 81 The heating projection member 81 includes a driven gear 85 formed at the third tip portion 84a of the support member 84 and a drive gear provided near the third tip portion 84a. 86 and the drive gear 86 is moved by being driven by the motor 87.

  Specifically, the heating projection member 81 is in a stationary state in which the hood member 82 is housed in the guide rail 83 and the support member 84 is in contact with the main body casing 200 when the air conditioner 1 is in cooling operation or stopped. Yes (see FIG. 2). When switched to the heating operation, the motor 87 is driven and the drive gear 86 is driven, so that the support member 84 protrudes toward the indoor side from the state in contact with the main body casing 200. At this time, the hood member 82 fixed to the support member 84 protrudes toward the indoor side together with the support member 84. Finally, the state shown in FIG. 3 is obtained.

The heating projecting member 81 that protrudes indoors during the heating operation of the air conditioner 1 stops the operation of the air conditioner 1 or is switched to the cooling operation, as shown in FIG. It returns to the state where it touches inside.

<Air flow in the indoor unit 2>
Hereinafter, the flow of air in the indoor unit 2 will be described with reference to FIGS. 2 and 3.

  In the air conditioning indoor unit 2, when the indoor fan 26 is driven by the fan motor, room air flows into the air conditioning indoor unit 2 from the suction port 21a. The indoor air sucked from the suction port 21a is heat-exchanged by the indoor heat exchanger 27. The conditioned air heat-exchanged by the indoor heat exchanger 27 flows downward of the indoor heat exchanger 27. The conditioned air passes through the indoor fan 26 and is blown out into the room from the air outlet 21b.

  Here, during the cooling operation, since the cooling projecting member 80 protrudes, even if the conditioned air passing through the outlet 21b flows downward, it collides with the cold air guide surface 80a, so that it easily flows upward (FIG. 2). Arrow A1). During cooling operation, the cooling projecting member 80 protrudes into the upper space in the vicinity of the curved surface 20b so that the curved surface 20b does not function, so the conditioned air passing through the outlet 21b is guided downward by the curved surface 20b. Never be.

  In addition, here, since the heating projecting member 81 protrudes during the heating operation, even if the conditioned air that has passed through the air outlet 21b flows upward, it collides with the warm air guide surface 81a, so that it tends to flow downward ( (See arrow A2 in FIG. 3). Moreover, since the curved surface 20b is formed in the lower formation part 20a, when the air-conditioning air which passes the blower outlet 21b passes the vicinity of the curved surface 20b, a Counder effect arises and it flows so that it may flow along the surface below. It has become.

<Characteristics of the indoor unit 2 of the air conditioner 1 according to the first embodiment>
(1)
During the heating operation of the air conditioner, the warmed conditioned air is lighter than the room air and therefore tends to flow upward in the room. In addition, in the case of a wall-embedded air conditioner, the wall surface and the outlet through which the conditioned air can be blown out are almost at the same position, so that the conditioned air is blown directly down even when the horizontal flap angle is maximally downward. It cannot be done and it does not flow to the floor. For this reason, even if the user of the air conditioner wants to warm his feet, there may be a case where the user cannot be warmed.

  Therefore, in the indoor unit 2 of the air conditioner 1 according to the first embodiment, the heating projection member 81 is housed in the main body casing 200, and the heating projection member 81 is the upper edge of the outlet 21b during the heating operation. It moves from the vicinity of the wall to the indoor side of the wall surface W and protrudes.

  Thereby, the warm air that tends to flow upward collides with the warm air guide surface 81a of the heating projecting member 81, and easily flows downward. Therefore, it becomes easy for warm air to reach the floor surface, and user comfort is improved.

  Further, a curved surface 20b having a semicircular arc shape is formed in the lower forming portion 20a from the opposite side of the room side to the room side with the wall surface W interposed therebetween, and the conditioned air passing through the outlet 21b is sent to the curved surface 20b. Along the bottom.

  Thereby, the warmed conditioned air reaches the floor surface.

(2)
In the wall-embedded air conditioner, since the wall surface and the air outlet are almost at the same position, it is assumed that the cooled air does not reach the corner of the room even when the flap is leveled during the cooling operation. Moreover, since the cooled air is heavier than room air, it tends to flow downward in the room.

  Therefore, in the indoor unit 2 of the air conditioner 1 of the present embodiment, the cooling projecting member 80 is provided, and during the cooling operation, the cooling projecting member 80 moves from the inside of the main body casing 200 to the indoor side and projects. The cooling projecting member 80 has a configuration in which a first tip portion 80b is inclined upward with respect to a horizontal plane.

  As a result, the conditioned air that has passed through the air outlet 21b can collide with the cooling projecting member 80 and flow upward and further away. Thereby, since the cooled air spreads in the whole room, a user's comfort improves.

  Further, the cooling projecting member 80 projects from the state accommodated along the lower edge of the main body casing 200 toward the indoor side toward the upper space in the vicinity of the curved surface 20b. The conditioned air passing therethrough is prevented from being guided downward along the curved surface 20b.

<Modification of the indoor unit 2 of the air conditioner 1 according to the first embodiment>
In the above-described embodiment, the air conditioner 1 is described as being capable of performing both the cooling operation and the heating operation, but may be the air conditioner 1 capable of performing only one of the operations. Further, the indoor unit 2 has been described as including both the cooling projecting member 80 and the heating projecting member 81, but the present invention is not limited to this, and only one of them may be provided.

<Second Embodiment>
The indoor unit 210 of the air conditioner 1 according to the second embodiment is partially different from the configuration of the indoor unit 2 of the air conditioner 1 according to the first embodiment.
