What is a Whole House Water Filter and How Can Your New Hampshire Home Benefit from One?

whole-house-water-filtersIf you want to improve the quality of the water in your home, you have many options to choose from. A water filter can be as small as a pitcher that you stick inside of your refrigerator and as large as a standalone appliance that’s attached to your home’s plumbing system. A whole house water filter falls into the latter category, and it’s one of the best options you have for filtering your home’s water. Today we’re going to talk about what a whole house water filter is and the benefits of installing one in your New Hampshire home!

What is a “whole house” water filter?

A whole house water filter is a category of water filtration systems that are installed near the point where water enters your home. Unlike point-of-use systems, which only filter the water that comes from a single tap, a whole house water filtration system filters water as soon as it enters your home. As a result, the water that comes out of every single tap in your home is filtered by a whole house system.
Whole house water filters can use a variety of different filtration techniques depending on the needs of your particular home.

What are the benefits of installing a whole house water filter?

  • “All-access pass” to filtered water at home. As we mentioned above, a whole house water filter provides filtered water at every single tap. That means that whether you fill up a glass of water in the kitchen or in a bathroom, you’ll have equal access to the same great-tasting and healthy water. This is also great for other daily tasks that you use water for, such as brushing your teeth and washing your face.
  • Filtered water for bathing. Another great benefit of whole house water filters is that they provide filtered water for your showers and baths. A whole house system will remove water contaminants that can aggravate your skin and hair while showering. In addition, a whole house system will get rid of contaminants like chlorine that can be found in water vapor in the shower and are dangerous to breathe in.
  • Protection for your plumbing system and appliances. Along with the many great benefits you and your family will experience with a whole house filter, your plumbing system will be happier as well. That’s because a whole house filter removes contaminants that can clog and corrode your pipes, as well as contaminants that can damage water-using appliances like your dishwasher and washing machine.
