Reduces Energy Bills
Reducing your energy bill is a great thing! It is also a great feature to present later down the road when you want to sell your home. Hard water can cause scale build-up that reduces the amount of water that is able to flow through pipes. When this happens, your appliances will not work efficiently. When excess hard minerals are removed, water is able to easily move through pipes and allow your plumbing system to function correctly. You will also see a decrease in your water heating bills because you won’t need to heat water to high temperatures to remove stains or successfully clean your dishes. With a water softener, you can get so much more out of your water, so you won’t need to use as much.
Increased Home Value
A water softener not only saves you money, but it can actually put more money in your pocket. Having a water softener or reverse osmosis system installed in your home can increase your home’s value.
These are features that many homebuyers look for in their search, for the above reasons and more. Furthermore, potential buyers feel relieved that they won’t have to deal with hard water stains on sinks, showers, and dishes appliances etc.
Soft water requires over 50% less detergent to do the same amount of laundry. Detergents do not mix well with hard water, so by using soft water, your detergent is able to last a lot longer. This means you won’t have to purchase detergent as often, and you’ll be getting even cleaner results. You will use less fabric softener for your laundry loads since softer water creates softer clothes. Hard water can also cause clothes to be stiff, lose their color vibrancy and wear out faster. With softened water, you will not have to buy new clothes as often because your old ones are getting dingy.
