The next thing that is high on your priority list is evaluating the state of your new home and making adjustments to make it “yours”. Many older houses in St. Charles, IL don’t have a water softener and not having one will wear out the brand new appliances significantly faster than necessary. This should go to the top of your priority list so you protect your new investment.


If your new home doesn’t have a water softener and you’re uncertain if you really need one, here are some important things to ask yourself:

  • Are our appliances brand new?
  • Is there visible build up on faucets and shower heads?
  • Are any major appliances on a top floor where a broken appliance could lead to multiple stories of damage?


If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you’ll certainly want to have a new water softener installed. Just price out the cost of these four appliances: refrigerator, dishwasher, washing machine and water heater because without a water softener you will wear out these major appliances sooner than their expected lifecycle costing you thousands of dollars over what you would pay to have a water softener installed.


Now that we’ve determined you really do need that new water softener for your new home in St. Charles, give us a call we’ll help you find the best solution for your family. Call 1-630-864-7078.
