Advantages of having a water softener system


Orlando Water SoftenerHard water can be a source of frustration for many homeowners. Not only does hard water leave clothes dingy and sometimes gray or yellow; prolonged exposure can cause damage to a home's plumbing and appliances.

Adding a water softener system in the home is one of the best decisions that a homeowner can make. The far reaching benefits and savings in cost and energy far outweigh the initial purchase price of the softener. Water softeners extend the life of the home's appliances such as dishwashers, washing machines and water heaters preventing premature replacement and subsequent unnecessary expense. Smaller appliances like coffee pots also last longer when they are run using soft water.

Using a water softener in the home can reduce the amount of soap, detergent and shampoo use by up to 75 percent. Clothes, skin and hair are cleaner after washed and no rust or gray dingy stains are left behind on clothing. Dishes washed in soft water also come out much cleaner and with a shiny unspotted finish.

Water that is softened is heated more quickly in the home's water heater resulting in decreased energy expense. Hot water heater efficiency is estimated to improve by over 20 percent in units fueled by electricity and by almost 30 percent in gas fueled water heaters.

After years of exposure, the home's plumbing becomes full of scales and deposits left behind by hard water. The continual build up of deposits can affect the flow of water through the pipes and lead to frequent clogging. Extensive pipe damage can occur after long exposure to hard water subsequently leading to astronomical repair and replacement costs.

Up to 85 percent of homes in the United States are supplied with hard water. Water softener systems provide a multitude of benefits to homeowners including better cleaning, safeguarding of appliances, reduced energy costs, cleaner pipes and better appliance efficiency.

Water softener professional technicians can help consumers find the right size and style of system that works best in their home and for their family. Professional installation should also be provided by a technician to ensure correct installation.
