You’ve probably heard the phrase “It’ll pay for itself in no time,” but in the field of whole home water softeners it can be proven with a calculator. Too good to be true, you say? Well, let’s take a look at the facts.
Finally, let’s consider the water heating bill. Soft water drastically reduces the level at which the water heater must work, so the consumption is less. If the average gas and electric bill at a house is $163/month, then 16% of that is directly attributed to the heater. That’s $313 you’re paying each year for the water heater to do what the water heater does.
Okay, so let’s add it up.
|Estimated Annual Cost||% Savings with Soft Water||$ Saved||Cost w/ Softener|
