Reduced heating bills
One of the main ways soft water helps you to save money in your home is by improving the efficiency of your heating systems. Over time, the build-up of hard water minerals in the pipes around your home can leave them corroded and constricted, making it difficult for water to pass through them efficiently. Having a water softener fitted, will descale your pipes over time allowing water to pass through your home’s central heating system more easily. You can then reduce the amount of time your heating needs to be switched on for, saving you money.
Other appliances, like your shower, will also be more efficient, thanks to the improved efficiency of your pipes and the reduction of limescale. Because soft water doesn’t contain the minerals that hard water does, these minerals can’t build up and clog your shower head. This means shower times can be reduced, cutting costs in the bathroom too.
