Title: AIR CONDITIONER, AND MONITORING METHOD FOR ABNORMALITIES IN AIR CONDITIONER
Abstract:
An indoor unit (1a), which is an air conditioner providing air conditioning for a room, is equipped with: a temperature detection unit (5) which divides a range to be monitored in the room into a plurality of detection regions, and detects the temperature in the plurality of detection regions at a predetermined time period; a determination processing unit (6) which determines the presence or absence of abnormalities within the range to be monitored, on the basis the detection results of the temperature detection unit (5); and a communication unit (8) which notifies an external abnormality notification destination of detection of abnormalities if it is detected by the determination processing unit (6) that abnormalities exist. The communication unit (8) performs notification processing for providing notification of detection of abnormalities to the abnormality notification destination having the highest priority among the plurality of abnormality notification destinations for which priority levels have been set in advance. If no abnormality detection notification is recognized during a predetermined standby time period by the abnormality notification destination to which the abnormality detection notification has been provided, the notification is provided to the abnormality notification destination having the second highest priority according to the priority levels.
