Below are links to a couple of previous responses on this which should help - on the low end if just simple outside faucet, typically $100-150 more if in cold area so you need to install a frostless faucet.


Break point depends on house construction andn insulation and such as to where you can get away with a normal faucet with foam winter cover, and where you should use a cover PLUS frostless faucet - I would say definitely frostless type if it gets below about 15 or so in your area, and remember metal or concrete siding gets real cold so during installation you either need an insulating gap between faucet and siding or count the siding as exterior temperature. If in doubt, especially if the faucet is where a leak from a frozen and burst pipe would cause major damage, go with the frostless type, which requires installation of the valve end inside the house.
