94 Escort GT, rear disk brake caliper seizing during winter

Hi,

I bought the car in 2000. Since then I was forced to replace each rear caliper twice (first time I used rebuilt calipers, second time it was brand new ones), but every winter they will still seize. Whenever there's a warmer day (temperature around the freezing point) followed by a cold night, if I forget not to put the hand brake on when I park the car for the night, next morning one (if not both) of the rear calipers will be stuck for sure. Is there a way to stop the problem ?? I don't like spending $$ years after years for calipers !

Thanks in advance

Pierre
