What Is a Water Softener?

Hard water is a common issue that many Northern Virginia families experience. This water is rich in minerals that can build up over time on your plumbing fixtures, causing them to become damaged, raise your energy bills, and more. A water softener is a special type of water filtration system that eliminates these hard minerals from your water supply. The filtration system works by filtering out the minerals and softening the water supply to allow easier flow throughout your plumbing system.

Do you suspect that hard water is affecting your home’s plumbing performance? Contact Nice Heating & Air to schedule water softener installation service in Northern Virginia today.

While hard water is a common issue, it’s not always the root cause of what is negatively affecting your plumbing problems. Homeowners can tell if hard water is the culprit by watching out for the following signs:

  • Mineral buildup around plumbing fixtures
  • Soap scum on bathtubs, curtains, or shower doors
  • Failing water heater elements
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Dull, scratchy clothing
  • Spots on dishes, flatware, and glasses

When your hard water passes into a water softener’s tank, it moves through sodium resin beads.

The hard water minerals end up being exchanged for a small amount of sodium, resulting in water that no longer clogs fixtures and drains, leaves dishes, clothes, and hair dirty, or gums up the works of your water-using appliances.

The system will go through regeneration cycles to flush out the hard water mineral ions it accumulates and recharge the resin beads with the sodium ions they need to keep the exchange process going.

Your water heater needs routine cleaning and will need salt refills from time to time to allow it to continue the process of exchanging hard water minerals for sodium.

If you’re part of the Cozy Club or schedule a maintenance visit with Nice, we’ll take care of everything for you so you can enjoy soft water without worrying about all the technicalities involved.

A water softener aims to fix a single problem with your water: too much calcium and magnesium. A water softener will exchange those unwanted minerals with sodium, which causes far less trouble for your plumbing, appliances, cleaning, and hygiene.

On the other hand, a water filtration system seeks to remove harmful, bad-tasting, or otherwise unwanted contaminants from your water to leave it as clean as possible. A water filtration system is a perfect solution if you want to get lead, chlorine, bacteria, and other harmful compounds out of the water you drink in your home.

If you want both soft and clean water, you’ll want to use both in combination to service your water because they do different things.

John G.

“Five stars--could not be happier!  Josh and Kyle were very professional, provided several options to improve performance of HVAC, no pressure or time constraints, worked efficiently, were able to explain in clear terms what they found, including when items were performing in fine fashion and nothing needed to be done.  Thanks for a happy camper”


“Service was outstanding from the time of arrival which you could track arrival time live on a website link they send you so you know when they will arrive. Technical knowledge was very high, quick and efficient Kyle and his partner both handled the install of a Sensi Predict as if it was a walk in the park. I highly recommend Kyle from Nice Heating & Air for all HVAC issues and for new installs, him and his team are an amazing company and will think of them first if any issues arise in the future for sure....”

Andrew Baker.

“Professional and polite. Excellent communication throughout the maintenance visit. Definitely recommend.”


“Rolando Medrano was very professional and followed the CDC protocol of 6 feet social distance and had a mask and put disposable shoe covers before entering the house. He made sure to address all of our issues and provided answers for all our questions. He came on time and called before he came to update on timing and his status! He was a great help!”

Mike Richardson.

“Highly recommend Nice Home Services for your HVAC needs. Have been member of their annual maintenance plan for three years now and been extremely pleased with their approach to business. They are professional, knowledgeable, and relatable. The service specialists take their time to fully diagnose the issue and explain the situation in a way that is easy to understand. Never had an instance where they try to push product and instead look for ways to recommend how to save you money. Need anything done on your home's HVAC, call the folks at Nice Home Services and know you're making the right choice.”

“Love , Love the NICE Heating & Air company for their kind & trustworthy technicians, their unbeatable price & overall knowledge they’ve amazed me every time with their fabulous job on my house, I’ll recommend them without hesitations, try this company you won’t regret for sure.”

Richard Nowinski.

“Dionte and his helper (Josh) did a superb job with the installation. The result is both functional and as cosmetically pleasing as the ideal water heater installation can be. They were VERY careful moving the old one out and the new one in so as to assure no damage was initiated neither to the heater nor to our dwelling. He explained his intended design prior to execution and executed it flawlessly. This was followed by a comprehensive explanation of the functional options available through the control panel and Ipad app. Cleanup at conclusion of the install was appropriate and comprehensive. This team represented both Nice Heating and Rheem VERY positively!”

Kimberly Mason.

Jeremy was very professional and competent.”

“I purchased my HVAC unit a year ago along with a Cozy Club maintenance plan. It's been running great and the customer service team is always quick to respond to questions. Today Rolando M. came by for the maintenance check and, as usual, he was neat, professional and maintained the COVID rules. He was also very nice, living up to the company name. I'm very happy with my experience with Nice.”

N. England.

“I can't speak highly enough of this company. I requested an appointment, and it was scheduled for the next day. The technician was polite, honest, and a pure delight to work with. He didn't try to overcharge or tell me to replace something I didn't need to. He made service recommendations that were in line with industry standard prices so I could make an informed decision as he went about his service visit. Would recommend and will be using them again in the future. ”
