There are a variety of well-known benefits associated with soft water. It reduces the likelihood of dry skin and hair, eliminates nasty scale build-up in your sinks and tubs. However, there are other benefits you may be overlooking:
Reduced Energy Bill
Everyone likes to save money, and a water softener can help you do just that. Any appliance that uses water, such as a dishwasher or washing machine, functions more efficiently with soft water. For example, a water heater will use approximately 25 percent more energy with hard water than soft water. So, installing a water softener in your home could save you hundreds of dollars per year on this appliance alone.
Extended Life of Your Appliances and Plumbing System
No one wants to pay for costly plumbing repairs. Just the same, it’s frustrating to find that you have to repair or replace one (or more) of your appliances. Hard water can take a toll on any appliances that use water, thus shortening the lifespan. This is typically the result of scale buildup that impacts the efficiency of the pipe or appliance.
Keep your Clothes Soft and White
You spend a lot of money on your clothes, so you don’t want to ruin them with exposure to hard water. Hard water is more likely to get trapped in fabrics, thus dulling their color and making them stiff. With soft water, however, you can keep your clothes looking new for an extended period of time.
