Does A Water Softener System Increase Home Value?

Adding a water softener can do more than just reduce your utility bills and provide you with added benefits to your health. Adding a water softener can be extremely beneficial for adding value to your home as well. Hard water can detract from the value of your home quickly and knowing that there is a water softener in place that can add years to the lifespan of your plumbing will lead to a number of potential cost savings for a future homeowner.

Hard Water Defined

Hard water is the total amount of magnesium and calcium or hard water ions that can be found in your water supply. The hardness that is found in your water supply will build up in your pipes as well as in your water heater. You can form an ongoing crusty and white film in the fixtures of your bathroom and kitchen and lead to every fixture in your home having to work overtime just to work with your normal water supply.

A water softener will work to reduce the damage to your pipes and appliances over time and it will ensure that your home water supply is flowing efficiently. Your water pump will not need to work harder in order to push water throughout your house and this will reduce costs on your electric bill over time. Rather than facing ongoing costs if your hot water tank needs more time to heat and all your plumbing appliance fixtures are strained, a water softening system can continually increase your home value with its installation.
