Lochinvar, LLC announces that Dave Mahler of Mahler Associates, Inc. in Denver, CO, was selected as the first monthly winner of its annual VIP Installation Showcase, a contest that honors industry professionals for outstanding installations of Lochinvar residential boiler products. As part of its annual VIP Contractor Program, the Installation Showcase offers approved contractors the opportunity to compete on a monthly basis by showcasing their installations at www.knightheatingboiler.com.

Among the October entries was a submission from Mahler, which outlined a job he recently completed at a 100-year old home in a historic area in Denver. He and his team removed the existing boiler and water heater, and replaced them with a 400 Btu/hr KNIGHT® XL (KBN400) and a 50-gallon Squire® Indirect Water Heater (SIT050) to improve energy efficiency and reduce heating bills.

"This was a highly successful efficiency upgrade, and the homeowners are very pleased with both the performance and the appearance of the new equipment," stated Mahler.

“We’ve been part of the VIP Contractor Program since 2007, and it’s a great honor to be recognized for this installation as the first winner in this year’s VIP Installation Contest. Lochinvar is known in this industry as a leader in innovation with an outstanding commitment to excellence, and we take great pride in receiving this award."

Founded in 1981, Mahler Associates, Inc. specializes in heating, air conditioning, boiler hydronics and energy management controls.

As his prize for being named a monthly winner, Mahler selected a $250 gift card to Bass Pro Shops. The contractor with the most impressive project of the heating season will be selected as the grand prizewinner and will receive an all-expenses-paid, three-day trip for two to Nashville, TN. The trip includes a stay at the legendary Opryland Resort, a dinner cruise on the General Jackson Showboat, a night of entertainment at the Grand Ole Opry, a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery and a visit to Lochinvar headquarters for a roundtable discussion.
