More particularly the new and improved air conditioning. system is characterized by a box-like housing having an air inlet and an air discharge. discharge I2. The > housing HT is substantially of L-shape in=1ongitudina1lvertical section. It-is provided with a vertical portionv I4’ which con and. provided with a. fan for circulating. air through it. It is proposed to- provide a support nects with'a horizontal port-ion: l5.

The end of the ' discharge 55 housing is formed with additional perforations 2,408,635 3 4 l2 or any other form of air discharge, so the air from the housing l0 may enter the extension conduit 28 and be discharged from the discharge 29. The extension conduit 28 may be extended While I have illustrated and described the pre ferred embodiments of my invention, it is to be understood that I do not limit myself to the pre cise construction herein disclosed and the right to a different room or other quarters and may be is reserved to all changes and modi?cations com attached to any part of the horizontal portion l5 of the housing H3, in Fig. 1 or Fig. 4. in the appended claims. ing within the scope of the invention as defined The housing I3 is also provided with a group Having thus described my invention, what I of baflle plates, and means for holding said plates claim as new, and desire .to secure "by United in various positions so as to direct the stream of States Letters Patent is: ‘ air against the ice cake in various ways.
