Are you struggling with the effects of hard water in your home? Some signs of hard water include stubborn spots on drinking glasses and having to use more detergent to clean clothes. If you identify with any of these problems, call our office to request an estimate for a water softener.
It is important to understand that hard water is not dangerous to your health. Mineral-rich water can have slight health advantages, such as increasing your daily intake of magnesium and calcium. However, your pipes and hot water heater need protection from hard water.
Did you know that hard water can shorten the lifespan of your hot water heater and plumbing fixtures? When hard water is heated, the minerals can solidify into what our plumbers call “scale.” Scale buildup can force your hot water heater to work harder to put out the same amount of heat. This means that you have to pay higher energy bills for the same level of heat output. Installing a water softening system is the perfect solution for saving money on what could be a costly repair or replacement.
