It is extremely convenient to have a built-in water dispenser in your fridge. It brings many benefits – but those benefits are only as good as your filters. At American Appliance Repair we find that some of our clients have no idea how often they should replace their water filters. Keep reading to get the answer or call us at 800-640-9934 if it’s time to replace yours.
The 3 Main Benefits of Built-In Water Dispensers
First, let us cover why you have a built-in water dispenser in the first place. It brings three major advantages:
- Access to instantly cold water. Why waste water in your faucet as you wait for it to get cool enough?
- You get pure water. Even if your municipal source is crystal clear, it is traveling through many pipes along the way and can easily pick up contaminants.
- The taste is perfect. The more delicious and pure your water tastes, the more likely you will be to drink it – which is great for your pocket book and your health.
Clean Water Filters Are Necessary to Get the Most of These Benefits
If you are one of the many homeowners that never thinks to replace their water filter, then the best case scenario is that it will no longer be effective. It may make your water dispenser run a little more slowly. However, there is a bigger potential issue – as time goes on, you can begin to notice black, white, or brown flakes in your water. These are from the dirty filter that is now contaminating your drinking water and the ice your ice maker makes.
It is Easy to Find the Right Filters: Work with Us
One of the reasons that homeowners often choose not to replace their water filters is because they do not know where to find them or they do not know hat kind to get. We know how frustrating this is and we have worked to make it as simple as possible. Just give us a call, tell us what kind of refrigerator you have, and we can get you the quality filter you need.
There Are Several Ways You Can Tell It’s Time for a New Water Filter
Though the specific timeframe that your filter will last will be affected by the particular brand of your refrigerator, generally speaking you can expect to replace most filters every six months. There are many signs that may indicate it’s time to change your filter: If your unit has an indicator light then it will come on, if water is dispensing more slowly than usual, if your ice is cloudy, or if your water tastes off then it may be time to change your filter.
If you are ready to find the right filter for your fridge then you are ready to reach out to American Appliance Repair at 800-640-9934.
