  • Check the batteries in your
    smoke alarms.

    A lot of people do this chore on New Year's Day.
  • Take your fire extinguishers for
    a checkup.

    Use a certified inspector who will make sure they are properly charged.
  • Fix the faucets.
    Leakages translate to an unnecessary expense.
  • Got filters in your heating system?
    Clean them.
  • A tisket, a gasket.
    Check to make sure the gaskets in your fridge and freezer are nice and snug. And while you're at it, vacuum the coils on the back of the refrigerator.
