Abstract

PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED: To provide an air conditioner for issuing notification to promote a filter cleaning at an appropriate time in response to a living pattern of a user in order to prevent a period where a user cannot perform a filter cleaning from occurring even if the period requiring the filter cleaning elapses.SOLUTION: An air conditioner calculates estimated air conditioning operation hours ranging from a calculation starting date to a next cleanable week day multiplied by average calculated operation hours per one day ranging from the calculation starting date to the present date and the number of days up to a next cleanable weekday, on the basis of the present date and the present weekday counted at a timing section, a user's cleanable weekday stored at a storage part, calculated operation hours, and a calculation starting date of calculated operation hours. Then, the air conditioner issues a notification to promote a filter cleaning operation from a notification segment when the estimated calculated operation hours added with the calculated operation hours up to the present date to the estimated air conditioning operation hours is more than an upper limit value of the calculated operation hours.SELECTED DRAWING: Figure 3

Description

本発明は、フィルタの清掃を促す通知をする空気調和機に関するものである。 The present invention relates to an air conditioner that provides notification for prompting cleaning of a filter.

空気調和機の室内機は、空気中に含まれるホコリ等が装置内に進入することを防ぐために、空気吸込口にフィルタが設けられている。このフィルタには空気調和機を長時間運転させていると多くのホコリ等が付着して目詰まりし、目詰まりを放置して運転を継続すると運転能力の低下や消費電力の増大を招く。 The indoor unit of the air conditioner is provided with a filter at the air suction port in order to prevent dust or the like contained in the air from entering the apparatus. When the air conditioner is operated for a long time, a large amount of dust adheres to this filter and clogs it. If the clogging is left unattended and the operation is continued, the driving ability is reduced and the power consumption is increased.

このような不具合を生じさせないため空気調和機は、空調運転の積算時間が所定の時間に達したときに利用者へフィルタの清掃を促す通知を行うようになっている。また、フィルタ清掃を促す通知を行った後のフィルタの清掃が行われるまでの経過時間に応じて、段階的に強い督促の通知を行う空気調和機が提案されている。(例えば、特許文献1参照)。 In order not to cause such a problem, the air conditioner notifies the user to clean the filter when the accumulated time of the air conditioning operation reaches a predetermined time. In addition, an air conditioner has been proposed in which a strong reminder notification is given step by step in accordance with the elapsed time after the notification for prompting filter cleaning is performed until the filter is cleaned. (For example, refer to Patent Document 1).

特開2013−177997号公報(第6〜7頁、図4)JP 2013-177997 A (pages 6-7, FIG. 4)

特許文献1によれば、フィルタ清掃を促す通知からフィルタの清掃が行われるまでの経過時間に応じて、段階的に強い督促を通知するため、利用者にフィルタ清掃の重要さを訴えて清掃を促すことができる。 According to Patent Document 1, in order to notify a strong reminder step by step according to the elapsed time from the notification that prompts filter cleaning to when the filter is cleaned, the user is informed of the importance of filter cleaning. Can be urged.

しかし、例えば土曜、日曜の休日でなければフィルタを清掃することが出来ないなど、利用者の生活パターンによっては清掃の重要性を認識することができたとしても、清掃を行うタイミングが限られている場合があり、このような利用者に対して清掃を強く督促しても清掃時期を早める効果は少ない。また、清掃を行うタイミングが限られている場合には所定の積算運転時間を経過してもフィルタの清掃が行われない事があり、運転能力の低下や消費電力の増大を招くという問題があった。 However, even if the importance of cleaning can be recognized depending on the user's life pattern, for example, the filter can only be cleaned on Saturdays and Sundays, the timing for cleaning is limited. Even if such a user is strongly encouraged to clean, there is little effect of advancing the cleaning time. In addition, when the timing for cleaning is limited, the filter may not be cleaned even after a predetermined accumulated operation time has elapsed, which causes a problem of a decrease in operating capacity and an increase in power consumption. It was.

本発明は以上述べた問題点を解決し、利用者の生活パターンに応じて適切な時期にフィルタ清掃を促す通知を行う空気調和機を提供することを目的とする。 An object of the present invention is to solve the above-described problems and to provide an air conditioner that performs notification for prompting filter cleaning at an appropriate time according to a user's life pattern.

本発明は上述の課題を解決するため、空調運転時間を積算した積算運転時間が所定の上限値に達した時、フィルタの清掃を促す通知をする空気調和機において、前記空気調和機は、現在日時と現在曜日と前記積算運転時間を得るための空調運転時間を計時する計時部と、フィルタ清掃が可能な曜日である清掃可能曜日の入力を受付ける入力部と、前記清掃可能曜日と前記積算運転時間と同積算運転時間の上限値と同積算運転時間の積算開始日を記憶する記憶部と、フィルタの清掃を促す通知をする通知部と、これらを制御する制御部を備え、前記制御部は、前記記憶部に前記清掃可能曜日が記憶されている場合、前記積算運転時間の積算開始日から前記現在日時の日付までの日数で前記積算運転時間を除算した1日当たりの平均運転時間を算出し、前記現在日時の日付から次に到来する前記清掃可能曜日までの日数に、同1日当たりの平均運転時間を乗算して前記清掃可能曜日までに予測される予測空調運転時間を算出し、同予測空調運転時間に前記積算運転時間を加算した予測積算運転時間を算出し、前記予測積算運転時間が前記積算運転時間の上限値以上となった時、前記通知部が前記フィルタの清掃を促す通知をすることを特徴とする。 In order to solve the above-described problems, the present invention provides an air conditioner that provides a notification for prompting cleaning of a filter when an accumulated operation time obtained by accumulating an air conditioning operation time reaches a predetermined upper limit value. A timekeeping unit that measures the date and time, the current day of the week, and the air conditioning operation time for obtaining the integrated operation time, an input unit that receives an input of a cleanable day of the week that can be cleaned by a filter, the cleanable day of the week and the integrated operation A storage unit that stores an upper limit value of the accumulated operation time and an accumulation start date of the accumulated operation time, a notification unit that notifies the filter to be cleaned, and a control unit that controls these, When the cleanable day of the week is stored in the storage unit, an average operation time per day is calculated by dividing the integrated operation time by the number of days from the integration start date of the integrated operation time to the date of the current date and time. The predicted air conditioning operation time predicted by the cleanable day is calculated by multiplying the number of days from the current date and time to the next cleanable day by the average operation time per day. A predicted integrated operating time obtained by adding the integrated operating time to the predicted air conditioning operating time, and when the predicted integrated operating time is equal to or greater than the upper limit value of the integrated operating time, the notification unit prompts cleaning of the filter. It is characterized by doing.

以上の手段を用いることにより、本発明による空気調和機によれば、利用者は自らが設定したフィルタ清掃の可能な曜日までに予測される積算運転時間が所定の上限値に達する時期に、フィルタ清掃の通知を受けることができる。このため、フィルタ清掃が必要な時期を経過するよりも前にフィルタの清掃が行われ易くなり、空調運転の省エネ性を高めることができる。 By using the above-described means, according to the air conditioner of the present invention, the user can filter the time when the accumulated operation time predicted by the day of the filter cleaning that the user can set reaches a predetermined upper limit. You can receive cleaning notifications. For this reason, it becomes easy to perform cleaning of a filter before the time which needs filter cleaning passes, and can improve the energy saving nature of air-conditioning operation.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail as examples based on the attached drawings. Note that the present invention is not limited to the following embodiments, and various modifications can be made without departing from the spirit of the present invention.

図1は、本発明による空気調和機の概略構成を示すブロック図である。図1において空気調和機1は、冷暖房などを行う部屋に設置される室内機10と、屋外に設置される室外機20と、利用者が空気調和機1の操作に使用するリモコン30とで構成される。 FIG. 1 is a block diagram showing a schematic configuration of an air conditioner according to the present invention. In FIG. 1, an air conditioner 1 includes an indoor unit 10 that is installed in a room that performs cooling and heating, an outdoor unit 20 that is installed outdoors, and a remote controller 30 that a user uses to operate the air conditioner 1. Is done.

室内機10は、利用者からの操作を受付けるスイッチ類である入力部11と、現在日時と現在曜日と空調運転の積算運転時間を得るための時間を計時する計時部12と、利用者にフィルタ清掃を促す通知などを行う表示灯などの通知部13と、積算運転時間やフィルタ清掃を必要とする時期である積算運転時間の上限値などの運転情報を予め記憶する記憶部14と、室外機20との通信を行う通信部15と、リモコン30との通信を行うリモコン通信部16と、これらを制御する制御部17とを備えている。 The indoor unit 10 includes an input unit 11 that is a switch that receives operations from the user, a time measuring unit 12 that measures the current date and time, the current day of the week, and the time for obtaining the total operation time of the air conditioning operation, and a filter for the user. A notification unit 13 such as an indicator lamp for performing a notification for prompting cleaning, a storage unit 14 for preliminarily storing operation information such as an accumulated operation time and an upper limit value of the accumulated operation time which is a time when filter cleaning is required, and an outdoor unit 20 includes a communication unit 15 that performs communication with 20, a remote control communication unit 16 that performs communication with the remote control 30, and a control unit 17 that controls these.

リモコン30からは、利用者がフィルタの清掃を行うことができる曜日の設定が行えるようになっており、制御部17はリモコン通信部16を介してリモコン30からフィルタの清掃を行うことができる曜日の入力を受付けると、記憶部14にその曜日をフィルタの清掃可能曜日として記憶する。また、制御部17は空調運転が開始されると計時部12に空調運転時間の計時を開始させ、計時部12で計時させた空調運転時間を記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間に逐次加算して記憶する。 The remote controller 30 can set the day of the week when the user can clean the filter, and the control unit 17 can perform the filter cleaning from the remote control 30 via the remote control communication unit 16. Is stored in the storage unit 14 as a filter-cleanable day of the week. Further, when the air-conditioning operation is started, the control unit 17 causes the time measuring unit 12 to start measuring the air-conditioning operation time, and the air-conditioning operation time measured by the time measuring unit 12 is sequentially added to the accumulated operation time stored in the storage unit 14. Add and store.

また入力部11は、利用者がフィルタ清掃を行った後、フィルタ清掃を促す通知を解除する操作ができるようになっており、制御部17は入力部11からフィルタ清掃を促す通知の解除を受付けると、通知部13の表示灯を消灯するなどしてフィルタ清掃を促す通知を解除するともに、計時部12で計時している空調運転時間をリセットして新たに空調運転時間の計時を開始させ、記憶部14に新たに計時する積算運転時間の積算開始日時として現在日時を記憶する。 Further, the input unit 11 can perform an operation for canceling the notification for prompting the filter cleaning after the user performs the filter cleaning, and the control unit 17 receives the cancellation of the notification for prompting the filter cleaning from the input unit 11. And canceling the notification urging the filter cleaning by turning off the indicator lamp of the notification unit 13, resetting the air-conditioning operation time measured by the time measuring unit 12, and newly starting the time measurement of the air-conditioning operation time, The storage unit 14 stores the current date and time as the integration start date and time of the integrated operation time newly counted.

なお制御部17は、記憶部14にフィルタの清掃可能曜日が記憶されると、その後の空調運転中に、計時部12で計時している現在日時と、記憶部14に記憶されているフィルタの清掃可能曜日と積算運転時間と積算運転時間の積算開始日から、現在日時の次に到来する清掃可能曜日までに予測される予測積算運転時間を算出し、フィルタ清掃の通知時期であるか否かの判定を逐次行うようになっている。また、フィルタ清掃の通知時期であると判定した場合には、通知部13の表示灯などを点灯するなどしてフィルタの清掃を促す通知をさせる。 In addition, when the filter-cleanable day of the week is stored in the storage unit 14, the control unit 17, during the subsequent air-conditioning operation, the current date and time measured by the timer unit 12 and the filter stored in the storage unit 14. Calculates the predicted integrated operation time that is predicted from the start of integration of the cleanable day of the week, the integrated operation time, and the integrated operation time to the cleanable day of the week that comes next to the current date and time, and whether it is the notification time of filter cleaning These determinations are performed sequentially. Further, when it is determined that it is time to notify the filter cleaning, a notification for prompting the cleaning of the filter is made by turning on the indicator lamp of the notification unit 13 or the like.

図2は、本発明による空気調和機1の清掃可能曜日に対するフィルタの清掃を促す時期の判定方法を説明する説明図である。図2のグラフは縦軸に積算運転時間、横軸に日付と曜日を示し、空気調和機1の記憶部14に記憶された積算運転時間の遷移を実線の折れ線で示している。 FIG. 2 is an explanatory diagram for explaining a method for determining a time for prompting cleaning of the filter for a cleanable day of the week of the air conditioner 1 according to the present invention. In the graph of FIG. 2, the vertical axis indicates the cumulative operation time, the horizontal axis indicates the date and day of the week, and the transition of the cumulative operation time stored in the storage unit 14 of the air conditioner 1 is indicated by a solid line.

図2に示す実線の折れ線は、8月23日を積算運転時間の積算開始日として、積算運転時間が8月24日に8時間、8月25日に18時間、8月26日に32時間に達した状態である。 The solid line shown in FIG. 2 indicates that the accumulated operation time is 8 hours on August 24, 18 hours on August 25, and 32 hours on August 26, with August 23 being the accumulation start date of the accumulated operation time. It is in the state which reached.

また、説明の前提条件として、フィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値として64時間が、清掃可能曜日として土曜日が記憶部14に記憶され、空調運転中に逐次フィルタの清掃を促す時期の判定を行っているものとする。 Further, as a precondition for the explanation, 64 hours is stored as the upper limit value of the cumulative operation time that requires filter cleaning, and Saturday as a cleanable day of the week is stored in the storage unit 14, and the time for prompting the cleaning of the filter sequentially during the air conditioning operation is stored. Assume that a determination is being made.

まず、8月25日に積算運転時間が18時間となった時点では、制御部17は現在日付の(8月25日)以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日(8月30日)までに予測される図2の点線(1)に示す積算運転時間を予測するための演算を行う。 First, when the accumulated operation time reaches 18 hours on August 25, the control unit 17 predicts by the next cleanable day of the week (August 30) that comes after (August 25) of the current date. The calculation for predicting the integrated operation time indicated by the dotted line (1) in FIG.

具体的には、制御部17は記憶部14に記憶されている清掃可能曜日のデータ(土曜日)を参照し、計時部12で計時されている現在の曜日(月曜日)を読込み、読込んだ(月曜日)から、参照した清掃可能曜日(土曜日)までの日数(現在日付以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日までの日数)を「6日」と算出する。 Specifically, the control unit 17 refers to the data (Saturday) of cleanable days of the week stored in the storage unit 14 and reads the current day of the week (Monday) measured by the time measuring unit 12 and reads ( The number of days from Monday) to the referenced cleanable day (Saturday) (the number of days until the next cleanable day after the current date) is calculated as “6 days”.

次に制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間の積算開始日のデータ(8月23日)を参照し、計時部12で計時されている現在の日付(8月25日)を読込み、(8月23日)から(8月25日)までの日数(積算開始日から現在の日付までの経過日数)を現在の日付から積算運転時間の積算開始日の日付を減算することで「3日」と算出する。 Next, the control unit 17 refers to the accumulated start time data (August 23) stored in the storage unit 14 and refers to the current date (August 25) timed by the time measuring unit 12. ), And the number of days from (August 23) to (August 25) (the number of days elapsed from the integration start date to the current date) is subtracted from the current date. This is calculated as “3 days”.

続いて制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間のデータ(18時間)を参照し、この積算運転時間(18時間)を既に算出していた積算開始日からの経過日数である「3日」で除算することで、1日当たりの平均積算運転時間として「6時間」を算出する。さらに、1日当たりの平均積算運転時間「6時間」に既に算出していた現在日付以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日までの日数「6日」を乗算することで、図2の両矢印(1)に示す現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間として「36時間」を算出する。 Subsequently, the control unit 17 refers to the accumulated operation time data (18 hours) stored in the storage unit 14, and the number of days elapsed from the accumulated start date for which the accumulated operation time (18 hours) has already been calculated. By dividing by “3 days”, “6 hours” is calculated as the average integrated operation time per day. Further, by multiplying the average accumulated operation time per day “6 hours” by the number of days “6 days” until the next cleanable day of the week that has already been calculated, the double arrow (1 “36 hours” is calculated as the predicted air conditioning operation time from the current date shown in FIG.

続いて制御部17は、算出した現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間「36時間」に、記憶部14から参照していた積算運転時間(18時間)を加算することで、図2の点線(1)に示す積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間として「54時間」を算出する。 Subsequently, the control unit 17 adds the accumulated operation time (18 hours) referred to from the storage unit 14 to the predicted air conditioning operation time “36 hours” from the calculated current date to the next cleanable day of the week. Then, “54 hours” is calculated as the predicted integrated operation time from the integrated start time of the integrated operation time indicated by the dotted line (1) in FIG. 2 to the next cleanable day of the week.

そして制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されているフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値のデータ(64時間)を参照し、既に算出していた積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間「54時間」と比較し、「54時間」が(64時間)未満であるため、次の清掃可能曜日までにフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値に達しないと判定し、フィルタの清掃を促す通知をしない。 Then, the control unit 17 refers to the upper limit value data (64 hours) of the integrated operation time that requires filter cleaning and is stored in the storage unit 14, and starts from the integration start date of the already calculated integrated operation time. The upper limit of the cumulative operation time that requires filter cleaning by the next cleanable day because “54 hours” is less than (64 hours) compared to the predicted cumulative operation time “54 hours” until the cleanable day of the week. It is determined that the value has not been reached, and no notification is made to prompt the filter to be cleaned.

次に、8月26日に積算運転時間が32時間となった時点では、制御部17は現在日付の(8月26日)以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日(8月30日)までに予測される図2の点線(2)に示す積算運転時間を予測するための演算を行う。 Next, at the time when the accumulated operation time becomes 32 hours on August 26, the control unit 17 does not stop until the next cleanable day of the week (August 30) that comes after (August 26) of the current date. A calculation for predicting the accumulated operation time indicated by the dotted line (2) in FIG. 2 is performed.

具体的には、制御部17は記憶部14に記憶されている清掃可能曜日のデータ(土曜日)を参照し、計時部12で計時されている現在の曜日(火曜日)を読込み、読込んだ(火曜日)から、次の清掃可能曜日(土曜日)までの日数(現在日付以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日までの日数)を「5日」と算出する。 Specifically, the control unit 17 refers to the data (Saturday) of the days that can be cleaned stored in the storage unit 14, reads the current day of the week (Tuesday) timed by the timekeeping unit 12, and reads ( The number of days from (Tuesday) to the next cleanable day (Saturday) (the number of days until the next cleanable day after the current date) is calculated as “5th”.

次に制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間の積算開始日のデータ(8月23日)を参照し、計時部12で計時されている現在の日付(8月26日)を読込み、(8月23日)から(8月26日)までの日数(積算開始日から現在の日付までの経過日数)を現在の日付から積算運転時間の積算開始日の日付を減算することで「4日」と算出する。 Next, the control unit 17 refers to the integration start date data (August 23) stored in the storage unit 14 and refers to the current date (August 26) timed by the time measuring unit 12. ), And the number of days from (August 23) to (August 26) (the number of days elapsed from the integration start date to the current date) is subtracted from the current date. Therefore, “4 days” is calculated.

続いて制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間のデータ(32時間)を参照し、この積算運転時間(32時間)を既に算出していた積算開始日からの経過日数である「4日」で除算することで、1日当たりの平均積算運転時間として「8時間」を算出する。さらに、1日当たりの平均積算運転時間「8時間」に既に算出していた現在日付以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日までの日数「5日」を乗算することで、図2の両矢印(2)に示す現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間として「40時間」を算出する。 Subsequently, the control unit 17 refers to the accumulated operation time data (32 hours) stored in the storage unit 14, and is the number of days that have elapsed from the accumulation start date for which the accumulated operation time (32 hours) has already been calculated. By dividing by “4 days”, “8 hours” is calculated as the average integrated operation time per day. Further, by multiplying the average accumulated operation time per day “8 hours” by the number of days “5 days” until the next cleanable day of the week that has already been calculated, the double arrow (2 "40 hours" is calculated as the predicted air-conditioning operation time from the current date shown in FIG.

続いて制御部17は、算出した現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間「40時間」に、記憶部14から参照していた積算運転時間(32時間)を加算することで、図2の点線(2)に示す積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間として「72時間」を算出する。 Subsequently, the control unit 17 adds the accumulated operation time (32 hours) referred to from the storage unit 14 to the predicted air conditioning operation time “40 hours” from the calculated current date to the next cleanable day of the week. Then, “72 hours” is calculated as the predicted integrated operation time from the integrated start time of the integrated operation time indicated by the dotted line (2) in FIG. 2 to the next cleanable day of the week.

そして制御部17は、記憶部14に記憶されているフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値のデータ(64時間)を参照し、既に算出していた積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間「72時間」と比較し、「72時間」が(64時間)以上であるため、次の清掃可能曜日までにフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値に達すると判定し、判定した結果を基に通知部13にフィルタの清掃を促す通知をする。 Then, the control unit 17 refers to the upper limit value data (64 hours) of the integrated operation time that requires filter cleaning and is stored in the storage unit 14, and starts from the integration start date of the already calculated integrated operation time. The upper limit of the cumulative operation time that requires filter cleaning by the next cleanable day because “72 hours” is (64 hours) or longer compared to the predicted cumulative operation time “72 hours” until the cleanable day. It is determined that the value is reached, and the notification unit 13 is notified of the cleaning of the filter based on the determined result.

図3は、本発明による空気調和機1のフィルタ清掃通知に係る処理を説明するフローチャートである。図3の処理が開始される条件として、リモコン30から空気調和機1の運転を開始する操作が行われ、その操作を受付けた制御部17が図示しない室内機10の各部と室外機20に空調運転の開始を指示したものとする。なお、フローチャートに記載のSTはステップを表し、これに続く数字はステップ番号をそれぞれ表している。 FIG. 3 is a flowchart for explaining the processing related to the filter cleaning notification of the air conditioner 1 according to the present invention. As a condition for starting the processing of FIG. 3, an operation for starting the operation of the air conditioner 1 is performed from the remote controller 30, and the control unit 17 that receives the operation air-conditions each part of the indoor unit 10 and the outdoor unit 20 (not shown). It shall be instructed to start driving. Note that ST described in the flowchart represents a step, and the subsequent numbers represent step numbers.

制御部17は、空気調和機1の空調運転が開始されると計時部12で計時している空調運転時間をリセットして新たに空調運転時間の計時を開始させる(ST1)。なお、制御部17は計時部12で計時させた空調運転時間を、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間に逐次加算して記憶する。続いて、リモコン30から清掃可能曜日の設定操作を受付けたか否かを確認する(ST2)。 When the air-conditioning operation of the air conditioner 1 is started, the control unit 17 resets the air-conditioning operation time measured by the time measuring unit 12 and newly starts the time measurement of the air-conditioning operation time (ST1). The control unit 17 sequentially stores the air conditioning operation time measured by the time measuring unit 12 to the accumulated operation time stored in the storage unit 14. Subsequently, it is confirmed whether or not a setting operation for a cleanable day of the week has been received from the remote controller 30 (ST2).

制御部17はST2において、清掃可能曜日の設定操作を受付けていない場合(ST2−No)、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間とフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値を参照し、積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値に達したか否かを確認する(ST3)。積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値に達している場合(ST3−Yes)、通知部13の表示灯を点灯するなどしてフィルタの清掃を促す通知をする(ST4)。 When the control unit 17 does not accept the setting operation of the days that can be cleaned in ST2 (ST2-No), the control unit 17 refers to the accumulated operation time stored in the storage unit 14 and the upper limit value of the accumulated operation time that requires filter cleaning. Then, it is confirmed whether or not the accumulated operation time has reached the upper limit value of the accumulated operation time that requires filter cleaning (ST3). When the accumulated operation time has reached the upper limit value of the accumulated operation time that requires filter cleaning (ST3-Yes), notification is made to urge the filter to be cleaned by turning on the indicator lamp of the notification unit 13 (ST4). .

続いて制御部17は、入力部11から利用者がフィルタの清掃を行った後に行う、フィルタの清掃を促す通知を解除する操作を受付けたか否かを確認する(ST5)。通知を解除する操作を受付けていない場合(ST5−No)、リモコン30から空気調和機1の空調運転を停止する操作を受付けたか否かを確認する(ST6)。空調運転を停止する操作を受付けていない場合(ST6−No)、ST2へ戻る。 Subsequently, the control unit 17 confirms whether or not an operation for canceling a notification that prompts the user to clean the filter is received from the input unit 11 after the user cleans the filter (ST5). When the operation for canceling the notification is not accepted (ST5-No), it is confirmed whether an operation for stopping the air conditioning operation of the air conditioner 1 is accepted from the remote controller 30 (ST6). When the operation to stop the air conditioning operation is not accepted (ST6-No), the process returns to ST2.

制御部17はST2において、リモコン30から清掃可能曜日の設定操作を受付けた場合(ST2−Yes)、受付けた清掃可能曜日の情報を記憶部14に上書きして記憶する(ST7)。そしてST3へジャンプする。 When the control unit 17 receives a setting operation for a cleanable day of the week from the remote controller 30 in ST2 (ST2-Yes), the control unit 17 overwrites and stores the received information on the cleanable day of the week in the storage unit 14 (ST7). Then jump to ST3.

制御部17はST3において、積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値に達していない場合(ST3−No)、記憶部14に清掃可能曜日が記憶されているか否かを確認する(ST8)、清掃可能曜日が記憶されていない場合(ST8−No)、ST5へジャンプする。 In ST3, when the accumulated operation time has not reached the upper limit value of the accumulated operation time that requires filter cleaning (ST3-No), the control unit 17 checks whether or not the days that can be cleaned are stored in the storage unit 14. Yes (ST8), when the days that can be cleaned are not stored (ST8-No), the process jumps to ST5.

一方、制御部17はST8において、記憶部14に清掃可能曜日が記憶されている場合(ST8−Yes)、図2で説明したように、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間の積算開始日と、計時部12で計時されている現在の日付に基づいて積算開始日からの経過日数を算出し、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間を算出していた積算開始日からの経過日数で除算することで、積算開始日から現在の日付までの1日当たりの平均積算運転時間を算出する。また、算出した1日当たりの平均積算運転時間に、記憶部14に記憶されている清掃可能曜日と、計時部12で計時されている現在の曜日に基づいて算出した現在日付以降に到来する次の清掃可能曜日までの日数を乗算し、現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間を算出する。(ST9)。 On the other hand, when the cleanable day of the week is stored in the storage unit 14 in ST8 (ST8-Yes), the control unit 17 starts integration of the integrated operation time stored in the storage unit 14 as described in FIG. The elapsed time from the integration start date which calculated the elapsed operation time from the integration start date based on the date and the current date timed by the timer unit 12 and calculated the integrated operation time stored in the storage unit 14 By dividing by the number of days, the average accumulated operation time per day from the accumulation start date to the current date is calculated. Further, the calculated average accumulated operation time per day is the next day that comes after the current date calculated based on the cleanable day of the week stored in the storage unit 14 and the current day of the week clocked by the time measuring unit 12. Multiply the number of days until the cleanable day of the week to calculate the predicted air conditioning operation time from the current date to the next cleanable day of the week. (ST9).

続いて、制御部17は図2で説明したように、ST9で算出した現在の日付から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測空調運転時間に、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間を加算して積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間を算出する。(ST10)。そして、記憶部14に記憶されているフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値と、ST10で算出した積算運転時間の積算開始日から次の清掃可能曜日までの予測積算運転時間を比較し、予測積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値以上であるか否かを確認する(ST11)。 Subsequently, as described in FIG. 2, the control unit 17 adds the accumulated operation time stored in the storage unit 14 to the predicted air conditioning operation time from the current date calculated in ST <b> 9 to the next cleanable day of the week. Then, the estimated integrated operation time from the integration start date of the integrated operation time to the next cleanable day is calculated. (ST10). Then, the upper limit value of the accumulated operation time that requires filter cleaning stored in the storage unit 14 is compared with the estimated accumulated operation time from the accumulation start date calculated in ST10 to the next cleanable day of the week. Then, it is confirmed whether or not the predicted integrated operation time is equal to or greater than the upper limit value of the integrated operation time that requires filter cleaning (ST11).

制御部17はST11において、予測積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値以上である場合(ST11−Yes)、ST4へジャンプする。一方、予測積算運転時間がフィルタ清掃を必要とする積算運転時間の上限値以上ではない場合(ST11−No)、ST5へジャンプする。 When the predicted integrated operation time is equal to or greater than the upper limit value of the integrated operation time requiring filter cleaning in ST11 (ST11-Yes), the control unit 17 jumps to ST4. On the other hand, when the predicted integrated operation time is not longer than the upper limit value of the integrated operation time that requires filter cleaning (ST11-No), the process jumps to ST5.

制御部17はST5において、入力部11からフィルタの清掃を促す通知を解除する操作を受付けた場合(ST5−Yes)、記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間と計時部12で計時している空調運転時間をリセットし、新たに計時部12で空調運転時間の計時を開始させ、記憶部14に積算運転時間の新たな積算開始日として現在の日付を記憶する(ST12)。そしてST6へジャンプする。 In ST5, when the control unit 17 receives an operation for canceling the notification for urging the filter from the input unit 11 (ST5-Yes), the control unit 17 counts the accumulated operation time stored in the storage unit 14 and the time measuring unit 12. The current air conditioning operation time is reset, the timekeeping unit 12 newly starts the time measurement of the air conditioning operation time, and the current date is stored in the storage unit 14 as the new integration start date of the integrated operation time (ST12). Then jump to ST6.

制御部17はST6において、空気調和機1の空調運転を停止する操作を受付けた場合(ST6−Yes)、計時部12で計時している空調運転時間を記憶部14に記憶されている積算運転時間に加算して記憶し、計時部12に空調運転時間の計時を停止させる(ST13)。そして図示しない室内機10の各部と、通信部15を介して室外機20に空調運転を停止させ処理を終了する。 When the control unit 17 receives an operation to stop the air conditioning operation of the air conditioner 1 in ST6 (ST6-Yes), the integrated operation stored in the storage unit 14 is the air conditioning operation time measured by the time measuring unit 12. The time is added and stored, and the time measuring unit 12 stops the time for the air conditioning operation time (ST13). Then, the air conditioning operation is stopped in the outdoor unit 20 via each unit of the indoor unit 10 (not shown) and the communication unit 15, and the process is terminated.

図3で説明した処理を行うことにより、利用者は自らが設定したフィルタ清掃の可能な曜日までに予測される積算運転時間が、フィルタ清掃を必要とする所定の積算運転時間の上限値に達する時期に、フィルタ清掃の通知を受けることができる。このため、利用者によってフィルタ清掃を行うことができる曜日が限られていたとしても、フィルタ清掃が必要な時期を経過するよりも前にフィルタ清掃が行われ易くなり、空調運転の省エネ性を高めることができる。 By performing the processing described with reference to FIG. 3, the user reaches the upper limit value of the predetermined accumulated operation time that requires the filter cleaning, and the estimated operation time that is predicted by the day of the week when the filter cleaning that is set by the user can be performed. You can get notification of filter cleaning at the time. For this reason, even if the days when the filter cleaning can be performed by the user are limited, the filter cleaning is easily performed before the time when the filter cleaning is necessary, and the energy saving performance of the air conditioning operation is improved. be able to.
