I hope you and your family fared well if you were affected by the recent cold snap that touched much of the U.S. We had a pipe freeze, but thankfully we were able to thaw it without incurring any damage. This incident served as a reminder that it’s time to see to winter home maintenance tasks.
In my household, we’re committed to completing routine home maintenance because it is one way we can be good stewards of our home. We’ve looked into recommended home maintenance tasks and have compiled checklists of the tasks that should be completed during each season. You can find the fall home maintenance checklist here. I’ve provided the winter home maintenance checklist below. I’ll provide the spring and summer checklists in the coming months.

The nature of the seasons dictates that the bulk of routine maintenance tasks be completed in the fall and spring, so you should be able to complete the winter tasks pretty quickly. A little time and effort exerted today can save a lot of inconvenience and expense tomorrow!
What additional tasks would you add to this list?
