How Often Should I Change My Refrigerator Water Filter?
It is important to keep your refrigerator running at its best. This means changing the water filter on a regular basis. How often should you change your refrigerator water filter? That depends on the brand and model of your fridge, as well as the quality of your water supply. In this blog post from NuvoH2O, we will discuss how often you should change your refrigerator water filter, as well as other options on how to improve the quality of your home's water. Read on to learn more.
How Long Does a Refrigerator Water Filter Last?
The lifespan of a refrigerator water filter depends on the brand and model of your fridge, as well as the quality of your water supply. In general, most filters need to be replaced every six months to ensure optimal performance. However, if you have a higher-end fridge or live in an area with contaminated or hard water, you may need to replace your filter more frequently.
How Do I Know When It's Time to Change My Refrigerator Water Filter?
Refrigerator water filters provide you with fresh, clean water right from the tap on your refrigerator. However, in order to keep that fresh water flowing, it’s essential to change out your filter when necessary. While most manufacturers recommend changing your refrigerator water filter out every six months, if you have a contaminator or hard water, you may need to change your refrigerator water filter out more often.
If you are experiencing any of these problems with your refrigerator water filter, regardless of the age, it’s probably time to switch it out:
- Your fridge is not dispensing water
- The flow of water from your fridge is slow
- The ice from your fridge tastes bad or has a strange odor
- Your fridge is leaking water
- Your water from your fridge is tasting a bit off
Does Hard Water Affect the Lifespan of My Refrigerator Water Filter?
Yes, hard water can affect the lifespan of your refrigerator water filter. Hard water contains minerals that can shorten the life of your filter. If you live in an area with hard water, you may need to replace your filter more frequently.
However, using a whole-home water softener and filtration system can also help to expand the life of your refrigerator filter. You’ll also find that a whole-home system comes with a multitude of other benefits, including better-tasting water, less limescale, and even cleaner dishes and clothes!
Extend the Life of Your Refrigerator Water Filter With NuvoH2O
NuvoH2O offers whole-home water softener and filtration systems that work with revolutionary technology to provide your home with softer, better-tasting water. Many traditional water softening systems remove the minerals that cause hard water. However, there are benefits to leaving these minerals in your tap water. That’s where NuvoH2O comes in. Our whole-home water softener and filtration system works with a proprietary formula, CitraCharge®, which utilizes citrus to bind to the minerals, rather than removing them. This prevents the minerals from causing the problems associated with hard water while allowing your water to retain the beneficial minerals. NuvoH2O whole-home water softener and filtration system also reduces the pH of your home’s water, removes existing scale buildup that may already exist, and improves the taste and purity of your water.
