Lochinvar is pleased to announce the February winners in its VIP Contractor Program. Michael Scott of Skyline Plumbing & Mechanical Inc. in South Provo, UT, was named the latest winner of the VIP Installation Showcase, and Jason Olson of Alpine Plumbing in Brookfield, WI, was selected in the monthly drawing. Both winning contractors will take part in Lochinvar’s Nashville Experience trip this June, which includes an all-expenses-paid trip for two and tickets to the world’s largest country music festival.
An Impressive Installation
Scott’s entry in the VIP Installation Showcase, which is housed on Lochinvar’s Facebook page as well as on www.knightheatingboiler.com, highlighted Skyline Plumbing & Mechanical’s recent update to a heating system at a Utah residence. According to Scott, “The existing system employed a cast iron boiler, b-vent flue, inadequate combustion air, under-pumped 1,000 foot rolls of B-PEX for each loop, and a ‘rat’s nest’ of control wiring.”
Skyline Plumbing & Mechanical replaced the boiler with a 110,000 Btu/hr KNIGHT® Wall Mount Heating Boiler (WHN110). Concurrent upgrades included Lochinvar-approved flue with alternate vertical concentric venting, which uses the existing b-vent to route the new vent pipe through and also bring fresh combustion air to the boiler. To overcome the excessive head pressure, double pumps were installed to counterbalance the existing 1,000 foot loops of half-inch PEX. The installation was completed with the connection of new controls.
“Since the upgrade, the homeowners have enjoyed consistent comfort and are very pleased with their new Lochinvar boiler system,” said Scott.
Through April, VIPs can upload a photo and brief description of any qualified boiler or boiler/Squire combination installation for a chance to be named the monthly winner of the VIP Installation Showcase. Once an entry has been submitted, it is featured in a gallery where Facebook users can vote for their favorite installation. Those not engaged with social media can enter and vote on www.knightheatingboiler.com. The top three entries with the most votes each
month are selected as finalists, and a panel of Lochinvar judges chooses the monthly winner. New and repeat entries can be submitted each month for additional chances to win.
Rewards for Registrations
In addition to Scott’s February win, Olson was named the winner in the monthly VIP Contractor Program drawing. His product registration card was randomly selected, earning Olson a spot on the Nashville Experience for himself and a guest.
“I’m very excited to have the opportunity to take part in this year’s Nashville Experience,” said Olson. “I’ve heard great things about the Lochinvar headquarters facility, and I’m looking forward to meeting the Lochinvar team and other VIP Contractors this summer.”
In addition to each registration offering a chance to win the Nashville Experience, registrations of the high-efficiency KNIGHT® Boiler, Solution™ Boiler and Cadet™ Boiler also earn a $25 Visa® Reward Card, while every registered Squire® Indirect Water Heater earns a $10 reward card.
