During these uncertain times, finances are on the forefront of everyone’s minds. COVID-19 completely interrupted a lot of people’s lives, affecting many families, businesses and financial health. As we begin to have a glimpse of some semblance of normal as the state slowly reopens, you may be searching for ways to save a penny here and there. The good news is water treatment is one investment that can save you a lot of money.
Reduced Energy Costs
Minimizing your energy bills is a great goal, and water treatment systems can help you do just that! Hard water can create a bottleneck in pipes by causing scale build-up. This limits the amount of water that can flow through pipes. When this happens, your appliances work extremely inefficiently. When your water is treated excess hard minerals are removed, and water is able to flow with no trouble through pipes and allow your plumbing system to function correctly and your appliances to work more efficiently, actually using less water than before. A softening system can also save you money on your water heating bills. You will no longer have to heat water to extremely high temperatures to remove stains or clean your dishes. With treated water, you’ll get so much more out of your water, so you won’t need to use as much.
Increased Home Value
Did you know that a water softener not only saves you money but may end up putting your hard earned cash back in your pocket! Reduced energy costs are a great selling point whenever you are ready to put your house on the market. Plus, installed water softeners or reverse osmosis systems will increase your home’s value.
Many homebuyers look for water treatment systems while house hunting for the above reasons and more. Potential buyers know that, when looking at a house with a water softener, they won’t have to worry about hard water stains on shower walls, sinks, dishes, and appliances. It puts their mind at ease as well as more money in your pocket.
Save Money in the Laundry Room
Doing laundry with soft water requires less than half the amount of detergent needed to do the same amount of laundry in hard water. The ingredients in detergents don’t react well with the minerals in hard water, so more detergent is needed to get the job done. Also fabric softener is necessary when you wash with untreated water because hard water can also cause clothes to be stiff, lose their color vibrancy and wear out faster. By installing a water softener, you’ll be able to save money on detergent and fabric softener since you won’t be needing it as often. Plus, your clothes will come out even cleaner and softer. With softened water, you will not have to buy new clothes as often because your old ones are getting dingy.
