HOUSTON – We all know it’s hot and your air-conditioner is running probably non-stop.

However there are ways to give your AC a bit of a break — or at the minimum, make it run a little less with these hacks.

Here are a few ways that you could install on your own or work with a professional to accomplish:

It may seem like a no-brainer to some, but we’ll say it: Get yourself some blackout curtains or thick Roman shades or thermal curtains to keep out the sun’s rays. It’s especially important to keep them drawn during the day to keep rays out of areas you want to keep cool if you’re not occupying the space. These window treatments can decrease the amount of money spent on heating and air conditioning, as the curtains can reduce the amount of heat lost in cooler months and reflect heat in the summer, SFGate notes.

An expert air-conditioning inspection can help your system run better and more efficiently. In addition to checking your unit inside and outside your home, HVAC experts can also fill up levels of refrigerant in your air-conditioner so you won’t have an underperforming unit.

Who knew about these little gadgets? We didn’t. But here’s the way they work. Duct booster fans replace floor or mounted covers in order to get air moving faster than it normally would through the vent.

It’s important to keep the outside of your home clean. This is especially important around areas of your home that have air intake and exhaust. If these areas are clogged with dirt or debris, your HVAC system will have to run harder to bring in air to cool and work harder to cool spaces that may be trapping hot air.

Pest control is a good idea around an HVAC system. Bugs and rodents can invade the spaces that house your HVAC system and can cause a lot of damage inside the system and to it. Get experts or do it yourself, but target both insects and rodents to avoid damage to your ductwork or the unit’s wiring. Be sure to have the inside and outside of your home treated. Also, keep overgrowth away from your units so animals won’t find a home inside the perceived shelter of them. Not only will the critters likely die in there, they could also short out your unit and cause costly damages.
