I Think My Oil Heater is Just About Ready for Retirement

Maybe there are some leaks in the vents and if I tape them up it will run better.

We have lived in this house for quite some time now and a lot of things need to be fixed. I think the house was built in the 1970’s and a lot of the appliances are wearing out. Our dishwasher leaks quite often and we need to dry the water under it constantly. We also have an old washing machine that makes a loud noise when it’s running. These machines are just like people and they get old and worn out over time from being used each week. I guess I need to dig deep and buy some new ones. We have an old oil heater that has an oil tank outside of the house and we need to fill it monthly. I think it may be time to invest in a new air conditioner and heater or possibly just buy a new fireplace. The problem with a fireplace is that there are no trees in our area so I would need to go to the store to buy wood which can be quite expensive. I was thinking of replacing the ductwork and seeing if that helps with the heater. Maybe there are some leaks in the vents and if I tape them up it will run better. I’m not an a/c expert and know very little about repairing heaters but I may give it a shot to save some money. My friend said he would come over and help me fix things but I haven’t seen him yet. He is an HVAC expert so it would be great if he did come by.
