1 Fridge wise: Defrost your freezer if the ice is 5mm thick. Keep the temperature towards the higher side in order to avoid over frosting of the food in winters. Get you refrigerator serviced once in a year. Servicing ensures that the magnetic door seal on the refrigerator doesn't leak and also that on/off cycle of the refrigerator works properly. This will give a longer life to your refrigerator.
2 AC Service: Get your AC's serviced before off season. This would help the AC coils last longer. Also, you will be able to get off season discounts.
3 Remote battery: Remove remote battery during off season as it might leak and cause damage to the remote. Never leave a battery in remote when you think you will not be using it for some time.
4 Bathroom gadgets: If you use a space heater in a bathroom, make sure that it is specifically designed for use in a damp area. When you leave a room or go to sleep, unplug the space heater. Switch on the geysers too when not in use.
.5 Handle the basics: Keep basic tools like M-Seal, hammer and nails handy to fix any small breakdown. For the major ones, keep the number of home repair service providers stored in mobile.
