One of the concerns for people interested in buying a water softener is that will it save money. After installation costs, our customers are happy to know that there are a variety of ways a softer water system investment can reduce their overall spending.
Home Appliances Last Longer
Hard water can cause scale to develop in your pipes, reducing the flow of the water and causing your water-dependent appliances to work ineffectively and inefficiently. This can lead to a multitude of expensive repairs, and even full-on replacement, because your appliances will wear out faster. In addition, scale can result in staining on showers and sinks, which requires additional clean products to remove.
Clean Clothes with Less Water
Soft water needs over 50% less detergent to complete the same amount of laundry compared to hard water. Detergents tend to not blend well with hard water. However, using soft water instead can stretch the power of your detergent, as well as your dollar since you don’t have to purchase detergent nearly as often. The reason so is because softer water creates softer clothes which also maintain their color.
When hard water isn’t coursing through your pipes, soft water is capable of easily moving throughout your piping system, allowing your plumbing to function adequately. Since your plumbing system is working at peak efficiency, you will notice a significant decrease in how much water you use, since you don’t need as much now to effectively clean dishes or remove stains.
Increases Value of Home
When we say that this is an investment toward your future by saving money, how about the fact that it can make you money as well. Equipping your home with a water softener or reverse osmosis water filtration system can increase your home’s value. These are the type of desired features many homebuyers search for. Additionally, potential buyers are relieved about the fact that they won’t experience plumbing and hard water issues.
