Homeowners living in hard water areas often suffer from underperforming heating systems, although many don’t even realise it.
Water takes more time to heat up and the house remains chilly for longer than it should on cold winter evenings.
Most people assume it’s just how the system is, but often it’s the result of hard water reducing its efficiency.
Calcium and magnesium minerals in hard water clump together when heated and attach themselves to surfaces in the form of limescale. These deposits quickly build up in your water heating pipes, forming a rim of limescale. Not only does this inhibit the flow of water, but it also means a lot more energy is needed to heat pipes as the limescale layers have to be heated first.
Aside from increasing your energy bills and making your heating system less efficient, limescale can cause serious damage to the entire structure. Internal working parts of your boiler that heat the water can become blocked, requiring more energy to work normally – something that eventually results in breakdowns and extensive repairs.
Your home is probably the biggest investment you’ll ever make and problems with your heating system can threaten that. You need to safeguard your assets today.
The average boiler repair costs £235.37, while a brand new boiler will set you back between £1,800 and £3,500. Not dealing with your hard water problem is a big risk to take, considering a water softener can stop damage from happening in the first place.
