Why you should consider buying an air conditioner in winter

Understandably, buying an air conditioner in winter may seem like a low priority for Australians. Buying an air conditioner in summer is usually the obvious choice – as they are mostly used to combat the heat in our warm climate. Cooler mornings might not have you thinking about beating the heat, however, winter can be the perfect time to consider purchasing an air conditioning unit.

Range of availability of air cons in winter

During the winter season, demand for air conditioners typically decreases as most people prioritise heating over cooling. Summer is prime time for the purchase of air conditioning units, with this increase in demand you may find that it difficult to find the right unit for your home as stock levels are normally low during these peak periods.

An advantage of purchasing an air conditioning unit in winter is definitely the availability of units. More stock means more options to choose from when selecting the perfect air conditioning unit for your home or business.

Decrease of demand before the summer rush for air cons

Air conditioners can sometimes reduce indoor humidity levels, especially in dry climates (including Australia), or when set to lower temperatures. Low humidity can lead to dryness of the skin, throat, and nasal passages, which can cause discomfort and irritation.

More than just cooling

Most modern air conditioners double as heaters, providing year-round comfort. By purchasing a reverse cycle unit in winter, you can not only tackle the upcoming summer heat but also enjoy warmth during the cooler months in winter.
