Make Big Changes
A sharp rise in the cost of living is hitting households across the UK with inflation reaching 9.2% in February 2023. Faced with the rising cost of energy, it’s not surprising many of us are actively looking at ways to make our homes more cost-efficient.
It is estimated that over 60% of us in the UK live in hard water areas and as such, much of the UK is classified as having hard or very hard water. Homes with a hard water supply can encounter problems that can cost them a lot of money. According to research commissioned by BWT and reported in the Mirror, one third of Brits believe the water in their area has damaged their home appliances, including kettles, washing machines and showers. A water softener can help reduce the build-up of scale within your home, prolonging the life of your household appliances and help your home become more cost-efficient.

How will investing in a water softener help me save money at home?
There are many advantages to softening your water but you may not know exactly what these are. It may seem like such a simple thing couldn’t possibly bring that many benefits but there are a number of real advantages for your home, your family and yourself.
Softening your water reduces the amount of hardness minerals within it reducing the damaging effects of limescale, this means you don’t have tospend as much time cleaning, to keep your taps and shiny surfaces sparkling. The lack of limescale also means that you don’t have to use as many harsh cleaners, which will not only protect your pocket but also the environment. The build-up of limescale can affect your appliances by making them less efficient and, in some cases, causing them to break down prematurely. Softened water can save you money by keeping your appliances free of limescale and running efficiently.
When it comes to washing your clothes and linens, softened water can make quite the difference, not only can it make fabrics feel softer, but it can also leave them booking brighter and full of colour for longer. Laundry washed in softened water usually requires less detergent and fabric softener which can also save you money.
As well as reducing the amount of laundry detergent you use softened water means you can use up to 50% less shampoo and soap while bathing. Softened water lathers more easily and so will give you more bubbles for less. It can also be kinder to your skin and leave your hair looking shinier.
