Were you aware that adding a water softener to your list of home appliances will not only have several positive health effects for you and your family, but it will add value to your home as well?
It’s true. By adding a water softener to your home, you not only increase the pleasantries of a home, you are also upgrading the quality of life that not only makes your home more purposeful, but more enjoyable as well.
Take a look at these 4 big ways a water softener not only saves your skin, but saves your monthly budget, and makes you money!
Eliminate Hard Water
Hard water can add unreasonable years of use to all of your water using appliances and plumbing. Why not save the hard earned money you’ve put towards these must-have home luxuries by adding a water softener to your home?
By installing a water softener, you are taking preventative measures to eliminate hard water at the source, along with all of the maintenance issues that come with it later down the road.
Lower Your Energy Bill
Did you know the buildup hard water can cause in your home and home appliances can raise your energy bill?
With calcium deposits and other minerals, buildup can occur eventually causing blockage in your pipes. This, in turn, makes it more difficult for water to pass through which causes your appliance to work overtime which, as you guessed it, requires the use of more energy.
With a water softener installed during the earlier years of homeownership, you can easily bypass many of these issues and ensure a long, healthy life for all of your appliances.
Lower Maintenance & Upkeep
Running hand-in-hand with lowering your energy bill, hard water can require you to hire a handy-man, plumber, or technician to come in and keep your appliances up to par with your household demands.
By keeping a water softener in your home, you will lower the amount of maintenance issues as well as keep your home clear of calcium and magnesium deposits, which reacts with soaps and detergents causing soap curd (which, reduces the lifespan of clothing as well as causing major fading/gray stains).
Add Value to Your Home
A water softener is considered a valuable upgrade to your home; especially if you’re in regions where hard water is particularly more robust than others. It can easily add upwards of $10,000 in equity to the value of your home when it is installed. Additionally, it can even lower the cost of upgrades needed when you go to sale your home down the road as your appliances will be in better condition, the water heater will be in good shape, and the pipes will have minimal to no corrosion.
If you’re looking for a return on investment towards your home quickly, a water softener is the way to go. You won’t only see your home value rise, but you’ll enjoy a higher quality of life and clean, crisp water throughout your entire home.
