Choosing a Water Softener for Your Home

This entry was posted in Water Conservation on by .

naturesoftAcross America, millions of gallons of water are consumed each day. However, standard water treatment may not be sufficient for the health and comfort of your family, particularly in Arizona, where the water is notoriously hard. If you’re considering installing a water softener in your home, contact Cool Breeze Comfort Solutions to learn more about our whole-home salt-free water filtration systems available in Tucson and Globe.

Capacity
One of the most important factors that will influence your choice of water softener is its capacity. Just like any other appliance in your home, water softeners are available in varying capacities. Especially if you have a large family, you’ll want to ensure you choose a water softener capable of treating the amount of water you use. Keep in mind that purchasing a water softener that is too larger for your needs won’t help you save money—instead, it will make your system less efficient, costing you more in the long run. Talk to a professional if you have questions about calculating the right size water softener for your needs.

Type
Water softeners are available in a variety of designs, including both salt-based and salt-free options. While salt-based water softeners are the most common type of system, they can add small levels of sodium to your home’s water. If you are concerned about your sodium intake, consider a salt-free water softener that uses potassium chloride rather than sodium chloride to remove minerals. Reverse osmosis systems can also be used to remove salt from your drinking and cooking water.
