We all know clean water tastes and smells better, but did you know it can also save you money? Check out these ways conditioned water will benefit your wallet.
Increased Lifespan of Appliances
Contaminants from hard water can cause damage to your water-using appliances. Your washing machine, dishwasher, refrigerator and water heater all suffer the ill effects left by water that hasn’t been conditioned. Minerals found in low-quality water can create lime scale build-up that collects in pipes and reduces water flow to the machine. This causes your appliances to work much harder to do their jobs. Poor-quality water also might be the reason you have to run cleaning appliances, like your dishwasher, more than once just to get the job done.
The wear and tear caused by working overtime can lead to costly repairs and even premature replacement. One of the biggest money savers clean water will give you is longer living appliances. Be aware of the havoc poor-quality water is wreaking on some of your most expensive machines. Conditioned water will help you keep them around longer.
Reduced Energy Bills
Installing a water conditioning system can also lower the costs of those pesky energy bills. The mineral buildup and limescale from hard water collects and can even coat water holding appliances like water heaters. Because the minerals don’t conduct heat very well, it becomes a sort of insulator for the water that blocks it from the heating elements. This causes the hot water using appliance to use much more energy than needed to heat the water, racking up your energy bill.
Conditioning your water can significantly alleviate the amount of mineral buildup in these appliances. Increasing efficiency in your appliances can only lead to more money going back to your wallet.
Less Money on Cleaning
That’s right, a good water conditioning system can save you money on cleaning supplies. Did you know low-quality water has trouble mixing with soaps? Conditioned water actually lathers much easier because there are fewer minerals for the soap and cleaning supplies to react with. This helps you use less soap for each cleaning task and reduces the need to wash again.
When it comes to cleaning your clothes, a good water conditioning system can mean a world of difference. Not only do you get to reduce the amount of laundry detergent you use for each load, but you can also cross fabric softener off the list. Conditioned water leaves your fabrics feeling softer, cleaner and less likely to fade.
No More Bottles
How much money have you been wasting on bottled water? According to Matthew Boesler of Business Insider, “Consumers are spending 300 times the cost of tap water to drink bottled water.” That’s crazy, right? Especially when you can get bottled water quality straight from the tap with a good water treatment system.
Treated water tastes better than your average tap water and doesn’t have that terrible odor that low-quality water tends to have. So, stop lugging around those big packs of bottles when you can have quality water every time you turn on the faucet.
