When thinking about their water, not many people stop to consider its hardness; however, this can significantly affect your everyday life. By purchasing a water softener, not only will your water appliances thank you, but your wallet will too.
Three Key Reasons to Get a Water Softener Installed Today
Extended Water Appliance Life
Hard water contains minerals that can build up in your washing machines, dishwashers, coffee makers, etc. These minerals will clog up your appliances and will lead to them burning out.
By removing those minerals with a water softener, you extend the life of water appliances and save yourself some money.
Faster Heating of Water
Did you know that hard water can increase the amount of time it takes to heat your water? It's true, minerals from the hard water collect near the heating elements making heating cycles take longer. This mineral buildup is not only inconvenient for when you want to take a shower but will also drive up the cost of your utility bills.
Not only can soft water save you money, but it can also clean better than too! Hard water is not the best for cleaning as it tends to leave white spots, streaks, and soapy residue.
Soft water doesn't leave streaks or residue because it mixes better with detergent and soap, making the laundry and dishwashing process simpler.
Signs of Hard Water
If you're not sure if you have hard water in your home, keep an eye out for the following signs:
- Do you notice watermarks on your dishes after they dry?
- After you wash your whites, do they seem dingy? Or are your color clothes fading fast?
- Do you feel a film on your hands after you've washed them?
- Is there less water pressure when you shower or use the faucet?
