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

Lochinvar has selected the latest monthly winners of the VIP Installation Showcase and the VIP Drawing for the 2014-2015 heating season. Craig Childress of CCL Mechanical in Waltham, Massachusetts was named the January winner of the VIP Installation Showcase, and Steve Guy of Energy Management System in Holcomb, Kansas was selected in the season’s fourth 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

Childress’s entry in the VIP Installation Showcase, which is housed on Lochinvar’s Facebook page as well as on, highlighted the installation of a Lochinvar KNIGHT boiler and one Squire Indirect Water boiler to serve three floors of brand new radiant heating. After receiving numerous votes, Childress’s entry was selected by a panel of Lochinvar judges as the January winner.

“We chose Lochinvar’s KNIGHT boiler and the Squire Indirect Water to offer customers high-efficiency and reliable solutions for their hot water needs,” said Childress. “We’re very proud of these installations, and it’s an honor that Lochinvar has recognized it 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 Childress, Guy was also named a winner in the VIP Contractor Program for January. Guy 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.

“I think it’s great that Lochinvar rewards VIPs for boiler registrations on top of everything else that the program offers, and I can’t wait to check out the headquarters while we’re in town for the music festival,” said Guy.
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.
