Fixing Common HVAC Problems on Your Own - By GO Heating, Air & Plumbing

Image
Easy DIY Maintenance Tips and Quick Fixes There are a number of simple, easy-to-perform types of maintenance that any homeowner can do on their own to keep their HVAC system running properly. Here are just a few that are recommended. Clean and Replace Filters Filters are easy to remove, clean or replace. They are also comparatively inexpensive and require very little time or effort to clean, and even less to replace. We suggest to clean or replace the systems’ filters at least once every three months. If there are pets, clean or replace them every two months, as loose pet hair can clog up a filter very quickly. Clogged filters block air flow, which means the equipment has to work harder — and use expensive energy — to heat or cool the home. Replace Thermostat Batteries (Or Replace Old Thermostats) Many thermostats fail simply because their batteries are low. (Countless times a repair call is made when the only problem was a dead battery in a thermostat). Replacing those batteries is us

Karriem Allah parses Jabril Muhammad’s vision-experience in the book, “Closing the Gap: Inner Views of the Heart, Mind & Soul of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan”

Image
In this Message, Karriem Allah examines the events prophesied to occur, according to the Holy Quran and Bible, during the Honorable Louis Farrakhan’s departure to the Honorable Elijah Muhammad. Karriem Allah discusses several scenarios depicted in the Scriptures that can be used to set expectations for the Honorable Louis Farrakhan’s imminent departure. Karriem Allah describes how the origin of the Domestic Life of the Messiah, the Honorable Louis Farrakhan, is rooted in the prophetic narratives of the major prophets whose lives prefigured the Messiah’s life. As such, Karriem Allah shows how the “Domestic Life” goes back thousands of years, and how it has been defended for hundreds of years by Islamic scholars, in particular, through their defense of Prophet Muhammad’s polygamous marital life. Karriem Allah introduces Brother Jabril Muhammad’s vision-like experience described in His book, “Closing the Gap: Inner Views of the Heart, Mind & Soul of the Honorable Minister Louis Farrak
