Further, in the cool air operation mode, the air passage switching damper 24 is moved to the
circulation position, and the heater 26 drives the fan unit 21 by deenergizing to circulate the air
of the bathroom 101 and keep the temperature in the bathroom 101 at room temperature. The
corresponding air blows off.
[0057]
If the position of the air passage switching damper 24 is the ventilation position shown by the
two-dot chain line in FIG. 1, the ventilation air passage 25b from the fan suction port 20a to the
discharge port 20c is formed. The air drawn in from 40a is exhausted from the exhaust port 20c
through the ventilation air passage 25b.
[0058]
Thus, in the ventilation operation mode, the air passage switching damper 24 is moved to the
ventilation position to drive the fan unit 21, whereby the steam and moisture in the bathroom
101 are exhausted.
[0059]
When the position of the air passage switching damper 24 is the diversion position shown by the
broken line in FIG. Since both 25b are formed, a part of the air sucked from the suction inlet
grille 40a of the front panel 4 is blown out from the outlet grille 40b into the bathroom 101
through the circulation air passage 25a.
[0060]
Further, the remaining part of the air sucked from the suction port grille 40a is exhausted from
the exhaust port 20c through the ventilation air passage 25b.

Thereby, in the drying operation mode, the air passage switching damper 24 is moved to the
dividing position to drive the fan unit 21 and the heater 26 is energized to circulate a part of the
air in the bathroom 101 to cause the bathroom 101 to rotate. Steam and moisture in the
bathroom 101 are exhausted while blowing hot air HA inside.
[0062]
In the cool air operation mode, the air passage switching damper 24 is moved to the diversion
position, and the heater 26 drives the fan unit 21 without power supply to circulate a part of the
air in the bathroom 101 to allow room temperature in the bathroom 101 The steam and
moisture in the bathroom 101 may be exhausted while blowing air according to the above.
