According to a recent survey conducted by the association, recent damp and cold weather have led to 30% increase in queries on home appliances for winter. The item seeing the most consumer interest – and an all-time favorite for end-of-the-year banquet raffle prize – is the dehumidifier. 


Association Chairman Chuang-hsin remarked that Taiwan’s humidity is typical for an island nation, and electric appliances such as dehumidifiers, clothes dryers, and heaters become immensely popular around January. He encourages consumers to buy the products early and choose split inverter air conditioner which have benefits such as energy-efficient and little noise. In addition, merchants are looking forward to government incentives for the purchase of energy-saving models to attract more customers.


In addition to a gathering of over 100 domestic and international brands, vendors are offering attractive deals spanning NT$10,000 discounts for replacement purchases to 70% off floor models. There are also packages targeting businesses looking at raffle prizes for their end-of-the-year banquets.


The Ministry of Economic Affairs is providing subsides to people seeking to replace old home appliances with new energy-efficient models. Between January 2023 and January 15, 2024, individuals who purchase refrigerators and air conditioners with Level 1 energy efficiency labels can apply for subsidies and exemptions which translate into significant savings!
