This air conditioner features two air outlets that can be independently controlled. Cold air flows into the room through the ventilation grille that covers the entire front of the unit, while warm air is released from an air outlet integrated at the bottom. The air conditioner is equipped with a sensor to detect people in the room and automatically adjusts both the temperature and the strength of air flow. When the device is not in operation, a movable front panel in wood look covers the ventilation grille.
