I will need to get a new heater

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

We have lived in this home for quite some time now and a lot of things need to be fixed. I think the home was built in the 1970’s and a lot of the appliances are wearing out. Our dishwasher leaks quite often and every one of us needs 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 think I need to dig deep and buy some new ones. We have an old oil gas furnace that has an oil tank outside of the home and we need to fill it monthly. I think it may be time to invest in a new a/c and gas furnace 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 pricey. I was thinking of replacing the air duct 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 a cooling system expert and know little about repairing gas furnaces but I may give it a shot to save some money. My neighbor said he would come over to help me fix things but I have not seen him yet. He is an HVAC expert so it would be good if he did come by.
