Doubtless it would be nice to have for a week or two each January, but it's not worth the year-round trouble and expense. So you only need heating in January in Kunming? That sounds a hell of a lot better than here in Chengdu. It gets well under 20 degrees indoors long before January here. It certainly doesn't help that the buildings have the huge un-closable windows open letting all the cold and pollution in. They certainly don't have any fondness for fresh air here...well there isn't really any 'fresh air' in most China cities...just heavily polluted air. The best quality air you can get in China is by closing all the windows (which most of the time my pollution app recommends anyway), using an air purifier and turning on the central heating since it won't pump pollution into your house like an air conditioner will.
