How Can a Water Softener Save Me Money?
Hard water is the silent money drainer that, if left for a long period of time, can completely empty your wallet. A water softener is the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective solution to this problem because they are built for efficiency.
Save Money on Your Household Appliances
Many of your household appliances require water, like your boiler, kettle and shower, and hard water will be reducing their lifespans considerably. Hard water minerals cause scale build-up which leads to damaged plumbing and restricted water flow. Consequently, this means more mechanical problems, such as limescale build-up on the heating elements, requiring expensive and damaging acid washing. Washers that seal joints can also become calcified and which causes leaks. By installing a water softener, your appliances will be protected from harmful hard water, saving you money on repairs and replacements.
Save Money on Your Energy Bills
Hard water can wreak havoc on the efficiency of your water heaters, increasing your energy bills. The scale build-up from hard water minerals will not only damage the heating elements in your appliances; it slows down the transfer of heat into the water so they have to work harder for longer. A water softener can eliminate these hard minerals, ensuring that the heat exchanger works as efficiently as possible. The more efficient your heating system is, the more money you will save.
Save Money on Your Cleaning Products
With hard water, limescale builds up on taps, sinks and shower screens which is one of the hardest things to clean. Two options are aggressive, chemical cleaners or rough scourers, both of which can damage your surfaces. Softened water is completely free of limescale, so by installing a water softener, your surfaces will simply wipe clean. This means that you will spend less money on expensive cleaning supplies. Furthermore, big savings can also be made by reducing the amount of washing machine detergent by two thirds after installing a water softener. While the amount of shampoo and conditioner you use will also be dramatically reduced.
Overall, a water softener is one of the best investments you can make and will save you money in the long run. Why not contact one of our experts today? Email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or call on 01728 746764.
