One of the possible reasons your household bills keep piling up is hard water. Fortunately, there is a cost-effective remedy to such a problem – a water softener system. It works by removing excess amounts of calcium and magnesium from your water at home, thus softening the water you consume. Here are a few ways a water softener system can help save you more money:
Using Less Cleaning Materials
Hard water leads to a buildup of limescale in obvious places, including taps, sinks, kitchen utensils and tiles. Not only are traces of limescale unsightly, they are also considered unsanitary. You need to purchase extra cleaning supplies to specifically remove limescale. Moreover, hard water wastes a considerable amount of soap since you need more to create lather. If your home has hard water, household tasks like doing laundry and washing dishes will require more soap. Investing in a quality water softener can help you save bills on cleaning materials and soap.
Protecting the Quality of Bedsheets and Clothes
Hard water can make your pillowcases, blankets, bedsheets and clothes look worn and faded even when they are new. A water softener can actively preserve the quality of your bedsheets and clothes, preventing you from tossing them out after a short while.
Limescale, which is caused by hard water, can diminish the effectiveness of your household appliances as well as decrease their efficiency. For example, every 1.6 millimeter (mm) of limescale in a heating unit causes a 12% loss in heating efficiency. This forces your system to work harder, resulting in high energy consumption and electricity bills. A water softener in your home will prevent his issue.
