Sometimes, I wonder whether this contributed to my heart failure..

Short answer, yes.

Long answer, it just puts you on a long downward spiral of worsening health. Not sleeping properly, increase release of stress hormones, potentially leading to hypertension, you feel crappy, don't exercise, gain weight, cycle worsens.

I've known a few people that have tried CPAP. Some works others don't. The two biggest issues, getting a good mask fit and you have to sleep on your back.

The up side, start sleeping well and easier to improve your health. Down side, doesn't work and you're left with a surgical option called UPPP. Which causes you to lose a ton of weight because you can't eat for weeks.
