Best Faucet Repair and Installation Services in Columbus

Faucet Installation and Repair in the Columbus, Ohio Area

A number of faucets are installed throughout a home. Bathroom faucets, outdoor faucets, kitchen faucets, and even faucets in utility rooms! Faucet problems like a leaky faucet, squeaky handles, dripping faucets, loose faucets, low water pressure, low water flow, and other plumbing issues can make it quite difficult to use a bathroom or kitchen sink. Sometimes plumbing problems that impact faucets can be repaired by replacing components and completing other types of repair services, while other times it’s best to replace faucets entirely to correct the problem.

Professional Faucet Repair in Columbus, OH

Broken or leaking faucets and showerheads in showers and tubs are a big problem. Even if the leaking seems minor, a faucet leak can generate thousands of gallons of waste water over the course of a year. This wasted water increases your water bill, as you still have to pay for it even though you did not put it to good use. When a sink faucet drips hot water, this type of leak leads to even more energy waste as both water and electricity or natural gas are wasted in the process of water heating only for this water to go down the drain. In addition to the additional cost you can pay on your utility bills, leaks can generate serious damage to your plumbing fixtures and nearby areas of the home, which will cost money to repair.

Signs That Say You Need Faucet Repair

Leaking faucets are nothing to ignore, yet many homeowners do so when the leak appears minor. It’s always best to repair a leak immediately after you detect it. Here are some signs that a leak is definitely worthy of attention from a plumber now rather than later.

  • Drips of water leak out at a steady rate
  • The faucet handles squeak or stick when turned
  • The flow of water from the faucet is irregular
  • The direction of water flow from the faucet is out of place
  • There are visible signs of mineral deposits or rust on the faucet or in the water
  • Your plumbing generates knocking or gurgling sounds when you turn on the faucet

There are numerous small and moving parts inside a faucet assembly. Some of these parts can wear out as time goes on as they are exposed to consistent use and mineral content in the water. Sometimes these parts can be lubricated with penetrating oil so they work correctly and other times the parts are broken and require replacement. If your faucet is broken, call our plumbers to perform faucet repair today.

If you have a faucet that suddenly breaks and sprays water all over the room, this is an emergency plumbing situation that requires an immediate call for repairs. Shut off the water supply to the fixture or use your home’s main shutoff valve if you cannot find a shutoff valve for this particular sink. This will prevent any more wasted water from exiting the faucet and spilling out into your home. Once our plumbers arrive, they will diagnose the issue and make their necessary repair or help you out with the installation of a new faucet.

Faucet Upgrades for Your Home

Old faucets that are damaged and not working properly or just thinking your old faucets are ugly are valid reasons to replace a faucet in your kitchen or bathroom. Simply changing the style of faucets used on sinks and tubs can provide a quick transformation to the look and feel of the space.

There are a lot of options out there when it comes to picking new faucets for your home. Instead of navigating the thousands of choices solo, turn to your plumber for the expert guidance you need to make a quick and satisfying decision. The Buckeye Heating, Cooling & Plumbing team will help you identify new faucets that offer the finishes and shapes you desire. We perform expert insulation so your new faucet works as expected and does not experience any issues caused by poor installation.

Most faucets in a home remain operational and in good condition for about 10 to 15 years. Some last much longer than that, while other homeowners decide to replace faucets years before they’d fail to make a modern update. No matter your reason for installing a new faucet, turn to Buckeye Heating, Cooling & Plumbing for the expert plumbing help you need to get the job done.

Types of Faucets

As we mentioned, you have many choices when it comes time to replace a faucet. While the finishes and styles are seemingly endless, there are four general categories of faucets available for installation in your kitchen or bathroom in Columbus.

  • Ball faucets are popular choices for kitchens. These faucets have one single handle which is attached to the faucet body by a rounded cap. The handle connects to the faucet body and can be adjusted via the inner plastic or metal ball joint, as these faucets do not use washers.
  • Cartridge faucets are a type of faucet that has a stem cartridge inside of it. The cartridge moves up and down to regulate the flow of water. If you can see the handle moving upwards or downwards as you turn it, this is an easy tell that you have a cartridge faucet.
  • Disc faucets are newer faucet choices compared to other options. They feature a single handle atop a thick cylinder body. Within the faucet, there is a mixing chamber for cold and hot water. This area is known as a pressure balance cartridge and there is a ceramic disc within the chamber that will rise and fall to regulate water flow. The faucet handle is rotated to adjust the temperature.
  • Compression washer faucets are an older faucet model. These faucets commonly spring leaks as their washers break with wear. There are two handles on the faucet assembly that rotate tightly for adjusting the water flow.

Amongst these four main categories, the design options with new faucets are extensive. Here are some of the options you can expect to see when shopping for a faucet:

  • A center-set faucet is ideal for use in a bathroom. A single faucet body gives this fixture a small footprint so it doesn’t take up much space.
  • A single-handle faucet is another type of fixture that needs minimal space to install. It is a good choice for applications where available space is tight.
  • Spread fit faucets are a more elaborate choice with a wider footprint. Three pieces make up the faucet assembly and are installed separately for use with the sink. There is a waterspout as well as a hot and cold water handle.
  • Bridge faucets are a type of faucet model that sits above the surface of your sink. There are hot and cold water controls connected to the center-mounted faucet opening that create the appearance of a bridge. This faucet design offers a modern and Industrial look.
  • Wall-mounted faucets sit above the sink and are installed along the wall rather than on the sink surface. These are often found in use with decorative sinks that sit above the top of a vanity, like a vessel sink.

To diversify your faucet choices even further, each of these many options come in a number of finishes. You can find faucets in stainless steel, brass, zinc, and plastic finishes. Some finish choices are better than others in terms of durability and easy cleaning, but preference often comes down to aesthetic options.
