How big is the chance that I won't be able to find a comfortably air conditioned apartment? Do you think I should take the weather into account when deciding on when I go?
1. You will certainly find a comfy room - apartment- within your budget. Look at the adds here or there in-time.
2. As stated by TW Luthiers, both periods have up and down sides. I'd still recommend the warm (not scorching hot)summer vs. the cold /humid grey winter. besides, 37 C is not a 60 day average - this is not ThaiLand. It is however always warmer and more humid in the Taipei basin seen its position and protection from surrounding hills. You would more enjoy your time here anyway when you got the chance to visit plenty of cooler places , stroll in airco-shopping malls etc...
Have a great one when you come over.
