Water Softeners

Have you ever considered the quality of the water in your home? You may have hard water if you notice dishes coming out cloudy or soap scum left on washed clothes. Water hardness is the amount of dissolved magnesium and calcium, and higher hardness means lower-quality water that may affect your life in surprising ways.

Air Experts offers water softening solutions for homeowners like you, so you can prevent damage to your plumbing and enjoy the many benefits of softer water.

What Is a Water Softener?

Water softeners filter hard water through a mineral tank with negatively charged beads that attract calcium and magnesium. The minerals stick to the beads while the water continues on its way. Periodically, a mixture of salt and water is used to remove the minerals from the beads and flush the excess.

There are three main types of water softeners:

  • Ion exchange
  • Dual-tank
  • Salt-free

Water Softening vs. Water Filtration

Water softeners only remove “hard” minerals from water, which helps with issues like buildup on appliances, dry skin, and spots on clean dishes. On the other hand, water filtration is meant to produce better-tasting, safer water by removing contaminants like chlorine, sediments, and undesirable chemicals.

Many homeowners opt for a combination of water softening and filtration to produce the highest quality water for every purpose.

Benefits of Water Softeners

How does soft water benefit homeowners? These are a few of the advantages you can expect:

  • Prevents limescale buildup in pipes
  • Saves money on your water and electric bills
  • Prolongs the service life of appliances
  • Makes clothes softer and keeps them more colorful
  • Improves cleaning results for your dishwasher
  • Softer skin and cleaner hair

Water Softener FAQs

What is soft water?

Water described as “soft” contains little or no dissolved minerals or particulates.

How often do I have to replenish the salt in my water softener?

This depends on how hard your water is and how much you use the system, but you can expect to need a refill two or three times per year. 

Are there alternatives to salt for water softeners?

Salt-free water softeners use potassium chloride as a salt substitute. Potassium chloride is more expensive than regular salt and may be hard to find in some places.
