Claims

1. An indoor unit of an air-conditioning apparatus, comprising:
a body casing having an air inlet and an air outlet, the air inlet being formed in an upper portion of the body casing, the air outlet being formed in a lower portion of the body casing;
a ventilation passage formed in the body casing and connecting the air inlet and the air outlet to each other;
an evaporator provided to a refrigerant circuit, disposed in an inclined manner in the ventilation passage, and covering the ventilation passage such that air freely passes;
a main drain pan disposed below the evaporator and receiving dew condensation water from the evaporator;
a fan disposed in the ventilation passage; and
a sub-drain pan disposed only at a downstream side in a ventilation direction of the evaporator, the sub-drain pan receiving dew condensation water that comes out from a gap of the evaporator, wherein the sub-drain pan includes
a water receiving bottom plate that receives the dew condensation water, and
peripheral wall sections that surround, and attach to, a periphery of the water receiving bottom plate so as to prevent water leakage, at least two of the wall sections intersect and at least two other wall sections are spaced apart by a drainage port to drain the dew condensation water, the peripheral wall sections are each located on the downstream side of the evaporator.
2. The indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus of claim 1, wherein the sub-drain pan is disposed in contact with the evaporator.
3. The indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus of claim 1, wherein the sub-drain pan is disposed such that an inclination angle of the sub-drain pan with respect to a gravitation direction is between an inclination angle of the evaporator and a horizontal.
4. The indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus of claim 1, further comprising
a vertically long plate mounted on a surface at a downstream-side in the ventilation direction of the evaporator, and
a fixing fitting for connecting the vertically long plate and a central portion of the sub-drain pan in a left-right direction.
5. The indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus of claim 1, wherein the evaporator is divided into an upper heat exchanger and a lower heat exchanger joined to a lower portion of the upper heat exchanger, and
wherein the sub-drain pan is disposed only at a downstream side in a ventilation direction of a joint between the upper heat exchanger and the lower heat exchanger.
6. The indoor unit of the air-conditioning apparatus of claim 5, wherein the sub-drain pan is disposed at a position where a dew condensation water is collectable, the position being determined based on a relationship between an inclination angle of the evaporator with respect to a gravitation direction and a speed of air that passes through the gap of the joint.
