Title:
DEHUMIDIFIER
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2013/145848
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
The purpose of the invention is to obtain a dehumidifier capable of specifying the area where an object to be dried is disposed in a room even when multiple objects to be dried are scattered therein and of delivering air thereto. The dehumidifier is provided with: a dehumidifying means (5) for removing moisture; an air delivery means (2) for blowing the dried air obtained from passage through the dehumidifying means (5); an airflow direction-changing means (1) for changing the direction in which the dried air is blown; a moisture-detecting means (4); a temperature-detecting means (3); a surface temperature-detecting means (6) for detecting surface temperature in the room within a prescribed area; and a control means (7) for controlling the direction of airflow of the airflow direction-changing means (1) and the temperature-detecting means (3). The surface temperature-detecting means (6) is configured to detect surface temperature in substantially the same direction as the direction in which the dried air is blown. The control means (7) specifies the area in which an object to be dried such as wet clothing is disposed within a prescribed area from the surface temperature detected, delivers dried air from the air delivery means (2) toward the specified area, and does not deliver the dried air from the air delivery means (2) to areas where no placement of objects to be dried has been detected.
