Description
    BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
  • [0001]
    1. Field of the Invention
  • [0002]
    The present invention relates to a lamp and, more particularly, to a pendent lamp.
  • [0003]
    2. Description of the Related Art
  • [0004]
    A conventional pendent lamp in accordance with the prior art shown in FIG. 1 is mounted in a house and comprises a support member 21 mounted on a ceiling 22, a lighting unit 20 mounted on the support member 21, and a fan 23 mounted on the support member 21. The fan 23 includes a plurality of blades 24. Thus, the blades 24 of the fan 23 are rotated successively to produce an air flow so as to provide a ventilating and heat dissipation effect to the house. However, the blades 24 of the fan 23 easily produce noise during operation, thereby causing an uncomfortable sensation to the people in the house. In addition, the blades 24 of the fan 23 easily interfere with the lighting effect of the lighting unit 20.

The baffle has an upper end connected to the air outlet of the air conditioning unit and a lower end connected to the lighting unit. Preferably, the pendent lamp comprises a plurality of baffles which are arranged in the hood at different angles. Each of the baffles has a conic shape. Preferably, the air conditioning unit includes an air blower and a motor connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Alternatively, the air conditioning unit includes an air blower and a turbine connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Alternatively, the air conditioning unit includes an air condenser to deliver cold air outward. Alternatively, the air conditioning unit includes an air heater to deliver hot air outward.
  • [0006]
    The primary objective of the present invention is to provide a pendent lamp having an air conditioning function.
  • [0007]
    According to the primary advantage of the present invention, the air conditioning unit supplies cold air or hot air to the house to decrease or increase the temperature in the house to provide a cooling or warming effect to the house so as to regulate the temperature of the house at the optimum value.
  • [0008]
    According to another advantage of the present invention, the air conditioning unit does not have fan blades so that the air conditioning unit will not produce noise and will not decrease the lighting effect of the lighting unit.
  • [0009]
    According to a further advantage of the present invention, the pendent lamp has a simplified construction and is operated easily and conveniently.
  • [0010]
    Further benefits and advantages of the present invention will become apparent after a careful reading of the detailed description with appropriate reference to the accompanying drawings.
  • BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE SEVERAL VIEWS OF THE DRAWING(S)
  • [0011]
    FIG. 1 is a front view of a conventional pendent lamp in accordance with the prior art.
  • [0012]
    FIG. 2 is a front view of a pendent lamp in accordance with the preferred embodiment of the present invention.
  • [0013]
    FIG. 3 is a partially bottom view of the pendent lamp as shown in FIG. 2.
  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
  • [0014]
    Referring to FIGS. 2 and 3, a pendent lamp in accordance with the preferred embodiment of the present invention comprises a support member 11 mounted on a ceiling 14, a lighting unit 10 mounted on the support member 11, an air conditioning unit 12 mounted on the support member 11, a hood 13 connected with the air conditioning unit 12, and at least one baffle 131 mounted in the hood 13.
  • [0015]
    The air conditioning unit 12 is located above the lighting unit 10 and the hood 13 and has a bottom provided with an air outlet 121 facing the lighting unit 10 and the hood 13.
  • [0016]
    The hood 13 is connected with the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and is located between the air conditioning unit 12 and the lighting unit 10.
  • [0017]
    The baffle 131 is located between the air conditioning unit 12 and the lighting unit 10. The baffle 131 has an upper end connected to the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and a lower end connected to the lighting unit 10. Preferably, the pendent lamp comprises a plurality of baffles 131 which are arranged in the hood 13 at different angles. Each of the baffles 131 has a conic shape.
  • [0018]
    In operation, referring to FIG. 2, the air conditioning unit 12 blows air through the air outlet 121 of the air conditioning unit 12 and the hood 13 toward the lighting unit 10 so that the air is delivered outward from the hood 13 into the house so as to provide an air conditioning function to the house. At this time, the air flow are directed and regulated by the baffles 131 in the hood 13 so that the air is blown outward from the hood 13 at different angles and is distributed in the house evenly and smoothly.
  • [0019]
    In the preferred embodiment of the present invention, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air blower and a motor connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Thus, the air blower is driven by the motor to blow air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0020]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air blower and a turbine connected with the air blower to drive the air blower. Thus, the air blower is driven by the turbine to blow air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0021]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air condenser to deliver cold air outward so as to dissipate the heat and to lower down the temperature in the house.
  • [0022]
    Alternatively, the air conditioning unit 12 includes an air heater to deliver hot air outward so as to increase the temperature in the house.
  • [0023]
    Accordingly, the air conditioning unit 12 supplies cold air or hot air to the house to decrease or increase the temperature in the house to provide a cooling or warming effect to the house so as to regulate the temperature of the house at the optimum value. In addition, the air conditioning unit 12 does not have fan blades so that the air conditioning unit 12 will not produce noise and will not decrease the lighting effect of the lighting unit 10. Further, the pendent lamp has a simplified construction and is operated easily and conveniently.
  • [0024]
    Although the invention has been explained in relation to its preferred embodiment(s) as mentioned above, it is to be understood that many other possible modifications and variations can be made without departing from the scope of the present invention.
