  • Publication number: 20220221168
    Abstract: An air conditioner includes an ejector that raises a pressure of refrigerant by using energy for refrigerant decompression and expansion. A switching mechanism switches between a refrigerant flow in a first operation and a refrigerant flow in a second operation. The air conditioner is configured such that in the first operation, refrigerant compressed by a compression mechanism radiates heat in a use-side heat exchanger and is decompressed and expanded by the ejector while refrigerant evaporated in a heat-source-side heat exchanger is raised in pressure by the ejector. The air conditioner is configured such that in the second operation, refrigerant compressed by the compression mechanism radiates heat in the heat-source-side heat exchanger and is decompressed and expanded by a first expansion valve before being evaporated in the use-side heat exchanger while refrigerant does not flow through the ejector.
