Lochinvar has selected the first VIP Program winners for the 2012-2013 heating season.

Jamie Whitehead of Cooper Plumbing & Heating in Calgary, AB, was named the October winner of the VIP Installation Showcase, and Francois Pineau of Plomberie Chauffage Normand Inc. in Montreal, QC, was selected in the monthly VIP drawing.  Both winners will be awarded Lochinvar’s famous Nashville Experience, the top prize given to VIP Contractors.

During the first month of the VIP Installation Showcase — which can be found on Lochinvar’s Facebook page as well as on knightheatingboiler.com —Whitehead submitted an entry detailing the installation of two Knight wall mount heating Boilers. A 399,000 Btu/hr Knight (WHN399) is used to provide an efficient heat source for the home’s outdoor pool, while a 155,000 Btu/hr model (WHN155) keeps the pool deck clear of snow and ice.  Since the heating and pool equipment is installed in the garage, and the homeowner wanted to maximize usable space for parking, the Knight Wall Mount offered the ideal solution because it freed up floor space for the pool system – reducing the system’s overall footprint.

“I’m honored to be named the October winner of the VIP Installation Showcase,” Whitehead said. “There were a lot of really impressive entries, so I’m very proud that mine was chosen and I’m excited for a trip to Nashville this summer.”

Through April, VIPs can upload a photo and brief description of an installation of any qualified boiler 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. 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 entries can be submitted each month for additional chances to win.

Pineau won by registering qualified Lochinvar products he had purchased. With every registration of a high-efficiency KNIGHT, Solution or KNIGHT XL boiler, contractors receive an entry into a drawing for the Nashville Experience, as well as a $25 Visa reward card. In addition, a $10 reward card is sent for every registered Squire Indirect Water Heater.
