Benefits Of Good Water Quality

Jan 5, 2018 | Blog

Did you know the human body is approximately 60% water? Your body uses water in cells, organs and tissues to regulate body temperature and maintain other bodily functions. It’s not only important to make sure you’re drinking enough water, but also know what is IN your water.

Water And Health Are Linked

Since over half of your body is made of water, it’s clear how your health and quality of water you’re taking in are correlated. According to the CDC, the top causes of disease outbreaks related to drinking water are:

Giardia intestinalis

  • Infects nearly 2% of adults and 6-8% of children in developed countries worldwide
  • In the U.S., it’s the most common intestinal parasitic disease affecting humans

Hepatitis A

  • Can be found in every part of the U.S. and throughout the world
  • Infection rates in the U.S. have declined by more than 95% since a Hepatitis A vaccine first became available in 1995

Norovirus
Can be found in every part of the U.S. and throughout the world
In the U.S. each year on average norovirus:

  • Causes 19-21 million cases of acute gastroenteritis
  • Leads to 17-1.9 million outpatient visits and 400,000 emergency department visits, primarily in young children
  • Contributes to about 56,000-71,000 hospitalizations and 570-800 deaths, mostly among young children and the elderly

Shingella

  • Most contagious types of diarrhea caused by bacteria – causes about 500,000 cases in the U.S. annually
  • Found in every part of the U.S. and throughout the world

Benefits Of Water Filtration And Treatment

Home water filtration can help prevent the diseases previously mentioned! Everyone wants great-tasting drinking water, but home water filtration is so much more than that. When you choose to add filtration, you’re choosing to help upkeep your family and pets’ health. There are even different types of filtration and water treatments available to fit your family’s needs.

While your health may be the most important benefit of clean water, there are also other benefits for you and your family.

Health

Filtration rids your water of potentially harmful impurities, such as bacteria, lead, etc. It can also help prevent the spread of waterborne illnesses.

Environmentally Friendly

Drink filtered water instead of bottled water. The elimination of bottled water from your household helps to reduce the environmental impact. Plus, it’s cost effective!

Better Hair And Skin

Hard water can dry out your hair and skin. Prevent this by treating your water.

Lengthened Appliance Lifespan

Mineral deposits in your appliances, both large and small, decreases their effectiveness and shortens the appliances’ lifespan. Softened water keeps your appliances at top efficiency, making them last longer.

Improved Flavor

Coffee, tea and foods prepared with filtered water taste better.

Easier Home Maintenance

Avoid the rust stains, mineral deposits and film that hard water and other contaminants can leave on your fixtures, shower walls, sinks, toilets, etc. Water softening can help with an easy clean up.

Cleaner Laundry

Filtered and/or treated water makes your colors brighter and whites whiter. You’ll also use less detergent for laundry and dishes with softer water!

Will a Frozen A/C Fix Itself?

It’s easy to joke that an air conditioning unit able to encase itself in ice during a Florida summer should have no problem keeping things cold.

Reasons HVAC Systems Lose Efficiency

Outdoor heat is not the only thing that can cause your air conditioning to lose efficiency. Here we’ll go over other reasons HVAC systems lose efficiency and may be costing more in utility bills than it should be.

Ductless Mini-Split A/C vs. Central Air Conditioning

Ductless Mini-Split A/C systems are all the rage right now, and we can see why. They’re energy efficient, they allow for customized temperatures in different rooms of your house, they don’t require ductwork, and they’re very, very quiet. Sounds great, right? But mini-splits aren’t right for everyone and they’re certainly not one-size-fits-all. We’ll dive into where, when, and why you should get a mini-split vs. a traditional air conditioning system.
