  • Patent number: 9574781
    Abstract: An indoor unit and an air conditioner configured so that each outlet and each flap can be easily identified. An indoor unit (1) is provided with outlets (32a-32d) which discharge air-conditioning air toward the interior space, and also with flaps (35a-35d) having substantially the same shape, the flaps (35a-35d) being respectively disposed at the outlets (32a-32d) and capable of individually changing the discharge directions of the air-conditioning air. Sign sections (60a-60d) which are different from each other are formed either in the vicinities, respectively, of the outlets (32a-32d) or on the flaps (35a-35d), respectively.

  • Patent number: 8511108
    Abstract: An air conditioning unit has improved visual appeal in a non-operational state, and can reduce smudging of a ceiling in an air conditioned space by discharged air. The air conditioning unit is configured to be disposed above a space to be air-conditioned. The air conditioning unit includes a case, a first moveable panel, and a moveable panel actuating mechanism. The case has at least one discharge duct on a bottom face. The first moveable panel is configured to open and close the discharge duct. The moveable panel actuating mechanism moves the first moveable panels between a first position at which at least the outside section of the discharge duct is closed off, and a second position at which the outside section of the discharge duct is opened.

  • Patent number: 8230693
    Abstract: In order to give a simple appearance design to an interior panel (10) for an air conditioner (1) of the type having a couple of juxtaposed air inlet (11) and air outlet (12) and to eliminate the need for a complicated mechanism or behavior for implementing the design, the interior panel (10) is provided with: an opening cover (15) covering the couple of air inlet (11) and air outlet (12) together; and an opening/closing mechanism for opening and closing the couple of air inlet (11) and air outlet (12) by changing the position of the opening cover (15) within a region including the couple of air inlet (11) and air outlet (12). The opening/closing mechanism is a mechanism for turning the opening cover (15) about a central axis (O) located between the couple of air inlet (11) and air outlet (12).
