A water softening system is a home improvement investment that provides great returns. Discover the financial benefits of installing a water softener.
Improve Water Heater Efficiency
Hard water can leave mineral deposits that build up in your water heater. This added layer prohibits the efficient transfer of heat to the water.
Additionally, the sediment can damage components and necessitate expensive repairs. Sediment buildup also voids many water heater warranties, so if your water heater breaks down because of hard water, it likely won’t be covered.
Protect Water-Using Appliances
Another financial benefit of installing a water softener is protecting water-using appliances. Like in your home’s water heater, hard water can leave harmful deposits in your water-using appliances, such as your dishwasher and washing machine.
Hard water damage can take years off the lifespans of your water-using appliances. Hard water limits how effectively these machines can clean, so you won’t be as satisfied with their performance. And in the end, you’ll have to replace these expensive appliances sooner.
Use Less Bathing and Cleaning Products
Since soft water cleans more effectively than hard water, you’ll use smaller amounts of cleaning products in the shower and around your home. Hard water reduces the cleaning capacities of shampoos, soaps, and detergents.
The minerals in hard water chemically react with cleaning agents. Hard water can cause detergent to form a thin scum layer on your clothing. Then, when you put the clothes in the dryer, the soap residue can damage the fabric.
In the shower, hard water is rough on the skin and hair. But using a water softener improves the performance of your shampoos and soaps. Soft water gently cleanses hair and skin, helping you to look and feel better.
