Lebanon, Tenn. — Lochinvar has announced the second wave of winners in its VIP Contractor Program for the 2014-2015 heating season. Jamie Whitehead of Cooper Plumbing & Heating in Calgary, Alberta, Canada was named the November winner of the VIP Installation Showcase, and Aaron Jazynka of Master Mechanical in Papillion, NE was selected in the second monthly VIP drawing. As their prize, both contractors receive an all-expenses-paid trip for two to Nashville, as part of Lochinvar’s renowned Nashville Experience, for the world’s largest country music festival in June 2015.
For the VIP Installation Showcase, which is housed on Lochinvar’s Facebook page as well as on www.knightheatingboiler.com, Whitehead submitted an entry detailing the installation of a KNIGHT® Heating Boiler for a snowmelt system at a custom home in Calgary. The home’s steep driveway demanded a reliable snowmelt system and Whitehead chose the KNIGHT WHN199 model for the job. His entry received numerous votes and was ultimately selected by a panel of Lochinvar judges as November winner.
“I’m thrilled to have won the VIP Installation Showcase,” said Whitehead. “At Cooper Plumbing & Heating, we’re committed to offering our customers top-quality, high-efficiency heating systems. We install many KNIGHT Boilers for snowmelt and heating systems, and it’s an honor to have Lochinvar recognize our work.”
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 Whitehead, Jazynka will be among the VIP Contractors attending the 2015 Nashville Experience. Jazynka 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.
“Winning a spot on the Nashville Experience next summer is an exciting surprise,” said Jazynka. “I’ve heard great things about the trip and Lochinvar headquarters, and I look forward to checking it out for myself!”
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.
