The benefits of installing a Whirlpool water softener include the conservation of energy and extension of appliance life. It also provides aesthetic benefits to the skin, household fixtures and dishes.
The Whirlpool water softener is Energy Star Certified by the Environmental Protection Agency, which indicates that the product has been proven to aid in conserving energy. The softening of water eliminates the build-up of scale, which consists of calcium and magnesium, in appliances. This buildup contributes to an appliance's overconsumption of energy and the reduction of its lifespan.
Soft water also has a softening effect on clothing and skin, and reduces the scale build-up on household fixtures and spots on dishes and glassware.
