Hard water is hard on your wallet – and if you want to save money, installing a water softener is a smart plan.
Sure, a softening system comes with an upfront cost. However, due to the savings it provides, a softener quickly pays for itself. Great news, but how is that possible? Many of our customers have this question, so we decided to explain four ways a water softener benefit your budget.
Save Money on Soap and Detergent
Shampoo, soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, dishwasher detergent – these products may not seem all that expensive. But when you have hard water, you need to use a large amount to achieve the desired results.
Install a softening system, and you can use far less soap and detergent. You won’t need to purchase replacement products as frequently, and over time, that will add up to significant savings.
Save Money on Clothes and Textiles
The minerals present in hard water are no friend to your clothes and household textiles. Quite the opposite – it actually makes everything look rather gray, dull and dingy. In addition, the material wears out faster. So, having hard water often means spending more money on clothing, sheets and towels.
After installing a water softener, you’ll notice a definite difference. Softening systems allow for more gentle washing, which extends fabric life. You won’t need to buy new clothes and textiles nearly as often, and that can save you a great deal of money.
Save Money on Monthly Energy Bills
Hard water creates scale buildup, reducing the amount of water that can flow through your pipes. This makes your washing machine, dishwasher and water heater work less efficiently and leads to higher energy costs.
With a softening system, your appliances will function as they should, and the efficient operation will result in decreased energy bills. And if you install a Kinetico water softener, you’ll see even greater savings, as our systems do not use any electricity.
Save Money on Household Repairs
The scale buildup we mentioned doesn’t just affect the efficiency of your appliances – it can also result in the need for repairs. And if your home has hard water, you may face problems with both your appliances and your plumbing.
While installing a water softener is no guarantee you’ll never need repairs, having a softening system does help ensure that your appliances and plumbing last as long as possible. And over time, you’ll enjoy lower maintenance costs.
For the biggest opportunity to save money, you need to choose the right water softener – like one made by Kinetico. We engineer our softening systems to provide 20 to 30 years of trouble-free operation, and we back our products with a 10-year warranty.
