Is Whole-Home Water Filtration Worth It?
When people think of water filtration, they mainly think of drinking water. Not many people think about installing a water filtration system for the entire house. However, there are so many benefits to having whole house water filtration system—benefits that provide a healthier living environment for everyone in the household.
Whole house water filtration systems provide the following benefits:
- Cleaner water. There are a lot of things that people do not consider when it comes to the water in their household. Most people are under a belief that as long as they don't drink the water, then everything is fine, but that is not actually the case. Water that's not filtered, whether it is used for bathing, cooking, or drinking, contains a number of harmful chemicals that can cause problems even when it isn't ingested. For example, untreated water could contribute to dry, brittle hair and itchy skin when used for bathing due to the amount of chlorine and other contaminants. A whole house water filter removes pollutants in your water supply, providing fresher and cleaner water for the whole house.
- Cleaner air. Did you know that untreated water can also aggravate health conditions like asthma or allergies? This happens when chemicals present in your water supply vaporize in the air, especially when the water is hot. All of the dangerous chemicals and substances that are found in this water turn into gas form when you heat it. A lot of respiratory problems are eliminated when chloroform gas that is normally in present in city water is filtered out. By having a water filtration system throughout the house, the vapors from the chlorine and other harmful and dangerous chemicals are subdued. Additionally, filtration systems help to reduce any sediment, sand, and rust that is normally found in water that is unfiltered, which helps to eliminate soap scum from dishes which could also make a person sick.
It is said that spring water from the mountains is the cleanest and freshest water to clean with and drink.
