Nathan White Feb VIP

Two Winning Contractors Receive Spots on All-Expenses-Paid Nashville Experience Trip

Lochinvar has named the latest winners of the VIP Installation Showcase and the VIP Drawing for the 2014-2015 heating season. Nathan White of White’s Plumbing & Heating in Kenai, Alaska was named the February winner of the VIP Installation Showcase, and Joseph DiPietro of DiPietro Heating & Cooling in Bradford, Massachusetts was selected in the season’s fifth monthly VIP drawing. Both contractors will each receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Lochinvar’s Nashville Experience this June. The prize also includes tickets to the world’s largest country music festival.

An Impressive Installation

White’s entry in the VIP Installation Showcase, which is housed on Lochinvar’s Facebook page as well as on, featured two 155,000 Btu/Hr. KNIGHT® Wall-Mount Heating Boilers and one 80-gallon Squire Stainless Steel Indirect Water Heater being used to convert a 7,900 square feet, 14-zone home in Homer, Alaska to natural gas from fuel oil. After receiving numerous votes, White’s entry was selected by a panel of Lochinvar judges as the February winner.

“We chose to install two Lochinvar KNIGHT boilers for their state-of-the-art fire tube heat exchangers and their space-saving wall-mounted design,” said White.

“We’re excited to see the installations improve the home’s efficiency, and it’s an honor to be recognized by Lochinvar with the VIP Installation Showcase award.”

Through April 2015, approved contractors can upload a photo and brief description of any eligible boiler installation to the contest interface. Qualified products include the high-efficiency KNIGHT® (55,000 – 399,000 Btu/hr models), Solution™ and Cadet® Boilers, as well as the Squire® Indirect Water Heater.

Once an entry has been submitted, it is featured in a gallery where Facebook users can vote for their favorite installations. Each month of the Showcase, the top three entries with the most votes are selected as finalists, and a panel of Lochinvar judges chooses the winner.

If an Installation Showcase entry is not named a winner in the month it was registered, there’s still a chance it may win in a later month. While VIP Contractors can only win the Nashville Experience once per year, submissions continue to be eligible to win even after the first month they are entered.

Rewards for Registrations

In addition to White, DiPietro was also named a winner in the VIP Contractor Program for February. DiPietro was randomly selected in the monthly drawing for approved VIP Contractors. Every approved VIP Contractor is entered into a monthly drawing to win the Nashville Experience. For every qualified boiler registration, VIPs receive a Visa® Reward Card pre-loaded with $25 value. Each registration of the Squire Indirect Water Heater earns a card pre-loaded with $10 value.

“It is awesome that I won Lochinvar’s Nashville Experience,” said DiPietro. “I am a firm believer in Lochinvar’s reliability that is delivered through their high efficiency products, and I cannot wait to spend a few days in a great city, touring Lochinvar’s headquarters and visiting some old college friends.”

During the all-expenses-paid trip for two, winners and their guests will stay at Nashville’s Omni Hotel, a short walk from the ultimate experience for any country music fan. As part of the Nashville Experience, the winning VIP Contractors will also tour Lochinvar’s world headquarters and take part in a round-table discussion where they can share insights and information with Lochinvar executives.
