    FIG. 1 is a front view of a conventional pendent lamp in accordance with the prior art.
  • [0012]
    FIG. 2 is a front view of a pendent lamp in accordance with the preferred embodiment of the present invention.
  • [0013]
    FIG. 3 is a partially bottom view of the pendent lamp as shown in FIG. 2.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • [0014]
    Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, a pendent lamp in accordance with the preferred embodiment of the present invention comprises a support member 11 mounted on a ceiling 14, a lighting unit 10 mounted on the support member 11, an air conditioning unit 12 mounted on the support member 11, a hood 13 connected with the air conditioning unit 12, and at least one baffle 131 mounted in the hood 13.
  • [0015]
    The air conditioning unit 12 is located above the lighting unit 10 and the hood 13 and has a bottom provided with an air outlet 121 facing the lighting unit 10 and the hood 13.
  • [0016]
    The hood 13 is connected with the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and is located between the air conditioning unit 12 and the lighting unit 10.
  • [0017]
    The baffle 131 is located between the air conditioning unit 12 and the lighting unit 10. The baffle 131 has an upper end connected to the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and a lower end connected to the lighting unit 10. Preferably, the pendent lamp comprises a plurality of baffles 131 which are arranged in the hood 13 at different angles. Each of the baffles 131 has a conic shape.
  • [0018]
    In operation, referring to FIG. 2, the air conditioning unit 12 blows air through the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and the hood 13 toward the lighting unit 10 so that the air is delivered outward from the hood 13 into the house so as to provide an air conditioning function to the house. At this time, the air flow are directed and regulated by the baffles 131 in the hood 13 so that the air is blown outward from the hood 13 at different angles and is distributed in the house evenly and smoothly.
  • [0019]
    In the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air blower and a motor connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Thus, the air blower is driven by the motor to blow air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0020]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air blower and a turbine connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Thus, the air blower is driven by the turbine to blow air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0021]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air condenser to deliver cold air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0022]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air heater to deliver hot air outward so as to increase the temperature in the house.
  • [0023]
    Accordingly, the air conditioning unit 12 supplies cold air or hot air to the house to decrease or increase the temperature in the house to provide a cooling or warming effect to the house so as to regulate the temperature of the house at the optimum value. In addition, the air conditioning unit 12 does not have fan blades so that the air conditioning unit 12 will not produce noise and will not decrease the lighting effect of the lighting unit 10. Further, the pendent lamp has a simplified construction and is operated easily and conveniently.
  • [0024]
    Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred embodiment(s) as mentioned above, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the scope of the present invention. It is, therefore, contemplated that the appended claim or claims will cover such modifications and variations that fall within the true scope of the invention.
