LEBANON, TN – Lochinvar has selected the latest monthly winners of the VIP Installation Showcase and the VIP Drawing. Nathan White of White’s Plumbing & Heating in Kenai, Alaska, was chosen as the December VIP Showcase winner, and Matt Campbell of Comfort Aire Heating & Cooling, Inc. in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, was selected in the monthly drawing. Both VIP Contractors will join the other monthly winners for an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Nashville for the world’s largest country music festival in June.
An Impressive Installation
Nathan White’s submission for the VIP Installation Showcase described a recent retrofit of a 30-year-old heating system. He started with a room-by-room heat-loss calculation, which revealed a shortage of baseboard in the living area and abundance in the bedroom and study. Since he had planned to divide each room into its own zone, this information helped set up three unique reset curves for the various zones in the house. White replaced the home’s existing 115,000 Btu/hr cast iron atmospheric boiler and water heater with a 55,000 Btu/hr KNIGHT Wall Mount and a 45-gallon Squire Indirect Water Heater.
In addition, he added a 25-gallon buffer tank to eliminate any potential of short cycling and a 120-volt three-way diverter valve for domestic hot water production. White estimates that the new system will save the homeowner 50-70 percent in annual energy costs, while significantly improving comfort inside the house.
“We’re very proud of this installation, and it’s an honor that Lochinvar has recognized it with the VIP Installation Showcase award,” said White. “Between the strategic system setup and the excellent high-efficiency equipment, the job was a huge success – and it all happened on a -15 degree day!”
Rewards for Registrations
Lochinvar’s other VIP winner for December, Matt Campbell, was randomly selected to join the group of contractors heading to Nashville in June. His registration card for a recent boiler installation was chosen in the monthly drawing, earning him a free trip for two.
Every registration of a high-efficiency KNIGHT, Solution or KNIGHT XL Boiler earns participating approved contractors a $25 Visa reward card, as well as an entry into the drawing. For every registered Squire Indirect Water Heater, Lochinvar also sends the contractor a $10 reward card.
“I’m really excited about being part of the Nashville Experience this summer,” said Campbell. “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.”
