What are the Benefits of a Water Softener?

Many people in the United States live in an area with hard water. They can benefit in several ways from having a water softener installed in their homes by a licensed plumber.

What Is a Water Softener?

Water softeners remove minerals from the water coming into your home. It’s a whole-house filtration system that removes minerals through ion exchange. This process eliminates magnesium and calcium, which are the two main minerals in water.

Save Money on Your Energy Bills

When minerals build up in your appliances, they have to work harder to perform the same job. This causes higher monthly energy bills. Soft water will eliminate this problem and save you money.

Your Appliances Will Last Longer

Your washing machine and dishwasher will last longer once you eliminate hard water. When water is too hard, lime and calcium build-up in these appliances, which shortens their lives. By having a water softener installed, you can add years of life to these appliances.

Protects Your Pipes

Hard water causes mineral build-up in your pipes. This leads to obstructions forming. Water will flow faster through the pipes once you have a water softener.

Brighter and Softer Fabrics

Hard water causes white-colored clothes to appear dingy and colors to fade from them. With a water softener, your clothes will be brighter and keep their colors. They’ll also feel softer.

Easier to Clean

Hard water doesn’t react well to soaps and detergents. One result of this is hard-to-remove soap scum in your bathtubs and showers. You’ll be able to clean them faster after you get a water softener installed.
