Can an Indoor Fountain Save You Money in the Long Run?
I would argue that Indoor Fountains are an investment that will exceed your expectations in more ways than one. If you just consider the rate of return over even a five year period, the benefits far outweigh the costs. Daily health benefits primarily come from the relaxing effects and the added moisture inside your home or office, which helps to purify the air (your plants will thank you too). Long term benefits come from the increased value of your property and decreased mold and mildew over time (compared to using a humidifier).
Okay, so the relaxing effects of an indoor fountain are just common sense, right? Makes us just a little nicer to our partner, right? Saves us money on counseling in the long run, right? Taking the time to focus on the sound of the fountain after a long day of work...closing your eyes, breathing deeply and slowly, tuning out the other noise in your head, listening to the sound of the running water trickling down. You feel more relaxed already, right?
More relaxed = less counseling = more money in your pocket. Point made?
While it depends greatly on the weather where you live, our homes can become dry at any time during the year. Symptoms of dry air can include itchy, dry skin and dry nasal passages. If you are prone to bloody noses, a fountain could help! Getting that extra touch of humidity in the air can also extend the life of wood flooring and furniture, as wood can get brittle and crack when too dry. Just a little bit of needed moisture goes a long way. Running water attracts negative ions, which then will attract dirt particles in the air. The dirt particles attach to the negative ions and are pulled back into the fountain where it can be purified. Pretty cool, eh?
You may not be looking to sell anytime soon, but you also may not stay in that home forever. An indoor wall fountain, as a focal point on any wall, would be so unique (it would give your home that added “oomph!”). This feature may just complement your sale with a little added revenue to your bottom line when you’re ready to sell.
