5 Benefits of Having a Water Filtration System Installed

Posted on: September 28, 2022

A water filtration system has become essential because of all the harmful contaminants found in tap water. Water filters remove harmful contaminants such as bacteria, viruses, heavy metals, chlorine, and pesticides. The filters also reduce the amount of sediment buildup, which can cause clogs. They also improve taste and odor.

Most of us aren’t aware of the potential health risks associated with poor water quality. Even though bottled water has become a standard option for consumers who want purer water, the benefits of having a home water filtering system outweigh the costs.

Bud Matthews Services offers the best services in the area. We provide quality installation of water filter systems. Our technicians are trained and certified professionals who ensure safety and reliability.

Let’s take a closer look at the five excellent benefits of installing a water filtration system.

What is a Water Filtration System?

A water filtration system is an advanced multi-stage filter installed between your water main and the pipes for your entire house. This provides whole-home water filtration where filtered water is available from every house’s tap, showerhead, and faucet.

Benefits of a Water Filtration System

1. Water that Tastes Better

Not all tap water tastes the same, so most people tend to avoid consuming it. Many people who use water filters say it improves the taste and smell of their water.

Drinking filtered water is healthier for you by removing chemicals and bacteria, which makes it taste better. When you filter your water, your tongue will likely taste the difference, and that good taste will subtly confirm that toxins have been removed from your water supply.

2. Stop the Waste and Cost of Bottled Water

If you’ve been relying on bottled water for clean, safe water to drink, you can start saving immediately. Your family can pour pristine tap water into a glass for drinking at home and fill water bottles with cool, clear water to drink safely on the go.

You will save the planet one unpurchased bottle at a time. Reducing your household’s need for disposable items like water bottles can decrease the market-wide demand for such things and keep all those bottles out of landfills.

3. Improved Health

Clean water is also healthier when showering and bathing. Chlorine in municipal water, for example, can make dry hands and hair far worse and cause dulling over time. You also want to avoid chemical and microorganism exposure when bathing, just as you would when drinking water. This is one of many reasons why having a home water filter system is ideal so that each bathroom and each glass of water coming from any faucet in the household is safe and clean while also making your family healthier.

Those with sensitive skin or allergies may quickly notice the difference when shower water is filtered instead of coming directly from a well or the municipal water treatment center.

4. Increase the Longevity of Your Water Pipes

Harsh chemicals and microorganisms are not great for your pipes. The pipes beneath and throughout your home are connected to your water main.

Over time, minerals and chemicals like chlorine and fluoride can build up in your pipes, causing damage to your appliances. This buildup can cause premature failure of your appliances, including your dishwashers, washing machines, faucets, toilets, and showers.

You can extend the life of your appliances by installing a water filtration system. A water filter system removes harmful contaminants from the water that flows through your home, protecting your appliances from early breakdowns.

5. Improved Home Air Quality

Lastly, did you know that home-filtered water can improve air quality? When you boil a pot for pasta or pour water into the humidifier, the evaporated water in the air is absorbed by the air system’s cycle. This means that filtered water finds another way to make your home a cleaner, healthier place.
