Home water softeners save you money and make your home more efficient and more enjoyable.
Some homeowners consider residential home water softeners “luxury appliances,” as in something they would invest in once all the other household projects are complete and upgrades are made. Unfortunately, viewing water softeners as unnecessary can lead to increased cost and reduced water quality. Think about all of the things in your home – including your own body – that are affected by your water quality. All of these things benefit from the installation of a home water softener system.
Hard water affects more than three quarters of all homes in the country. This means the water contains excess amounts of metals and minerals. The water might be safe, but it tastes unpleasant, damages plumbing, and feels uncomfortable. Residential water softeners eliminate the mineral concentration in hard water and improve its quality.
An expert in residential water softeners can test your water to determine whether it is hard or not. You can also check it yourself. Does your glassware dry streaky and with spots? Does your hair and skin feel coated and itchy following a shower? Is there buildup on the faucets in your home? Chances are you have hard water.
Installing a home water softener is one of the easiest and most efficient ways to improve the quality of the water in your home. Whole house water softeners provide a variety of different benefits, including:
Worried the cost of a residential water softener might not be worth the investment? Consider the value a softener brings to your appliances. Hard water is hard on household appliances. Home water softeners add years to the life of your expensive household appliances.
Tired of pulling dishes from your dishwasher or drying rack covered in spots and residue? Installing a house water softener makes it easier to rinse dishes thoroughly. It also leaves you feeling cleaner after a shower or bath. Your tubs, showers, sinks, and washing machine will also require less cleaning.
Soft water also reduces the amount of detergent and soap you need to use. If you find it takes cups and cups of soap to build enough foam to get things clean, home water softeners can help.
Residue not only builds up on cookware, it also builds up on plumbing pipes and fixtures. Over time, this corrosion reduces the life of your plumbing system. When you install home water softeners, it reduces your plumbing system’s exposure to the minerals in hard water. Water softeners also prevent buildup on fixtures that can lead to serious clogs.
