Faucet Installation

Faucet Installation Services in Logansport, IN

Even though they get used every day, it can be easy to procrastinate on updating the faucets on a home’s water fixtures. Though it’s easy to put this project on the back burner, older faucets can cause a host of problems, from minor drips that raise your monthly water bill to major leaks that cause expensive damage to your home. 

Sometimes faucets just need a basic repair to reach maximum efficiency, but other times a full replacement is the best course of action. No matter which solution is right for you, Summers Plumbing Heating and Cooling is ready to take care of faucet needs for any homeowner in Logansport, IN.

Every home’s plumbing system is different, and oftentimes every sink inside a home is different too. With so many different faucets to choose from, working with one of our professionals will guarantee you find the best option for you and get it installed right the first time. 

How Do You Know It’s Time to Replace a Faucet?

Just because it isn’t broken or damaged doesn’t mean there’s no reason to consider replacing a faucet. Perfectly functioning older faucets could be in pristine condition, not leaking or dripping, and still, be candidates for replacements because they’re simply not as efficient as their modern counterparts. If you’re wondering if it’s time to switch out your faucets, consider these signs: 

If a faucet requires constant attention to keep it working its best, it may be time to go ahead and replace it altogether. While replacing a faucet that is reparable may seem like a waste of money, continuous repairs can add up quickly enough that going in on a replacement sooner than later can actually save you money.

Most people are familiar with the concept of totaling a car, the moment when repairs needed to keep it running either equal or exceed its value. It’s possible for a faucet to be totaled as well when repairing it can cost more than replacing it would. A good benchmark is any repair costing more than $200. Once you’re looking at that range, it’s a good idea to do a price comparison with professional faucet installation services near you. 

Cosmetic damages are just as worthy a consideration for replacing a faucet as functional issues. If a faucet is cracked, discolored, scratched, or otherwise an eye-sore, it may be time to replace it for the sake of the whole room’s aesthetic. 

Nothing gold can stay, even a trusty faucet that has been in a home for decades. Even if it hasn’t started to show its age yet, with an older faucet it’s just a matter of time before issues start to arise. Fifteen to twenty years is a pretty average lifespan for a faucet, so anything older than that should be up for replacement to stop problems before they can start. Older faucets are not as efficient at commanding and controlling the flow of water as newer ones. This means they are wasting water whenever they’re on–and sometimes when they’re not. If you’re looking to make small but meaningful changes at home to conserve water and your wallet, new faucets could very well be the right answer.

Guidelines for Choosing a New Faucet

It may seem silly, but choosing a new faucet can be overwhelming. There are so many on the market in different sizes, finishes, and features that knowing which is the right fit can be a challenge. Before diving into your search, take time to think about these tips to get you headed in the right direction and narrow your options: 

  • Price Point Faucets. Water fixtures are not the place to skimp on price, but you don’t have to break the bank either. Lower-end fixtures are likely to be inefficient and aren’t likely to last long, while extremely expensive ones typically don’t offer much considerable value to compensate for their cost. Looking for a median-priced one is the best way to approach the decision.
  • Functional Needs. Different features are more important in some areas than others. For example, a sprayer head has no place on a bathroom faucet but is a great feature for one in a kitchen or utility sink.
  • Number of Holes. Different faucets require different numbers of holes to be drilled in order to be installed. Knowing how many holes the old faucet had or how many are already drilled into a vanity or kitchen counter can help narrow down your choices, helping you stick to faucets that are compatible with the holes you already have.
