Lochinvar’s 2017-2018 VIP Contractor program kicked off October 1 featuring enhancements and a new eligible heating boiler product. The program provides contractors the opportunity to register purchases for rewards and enter their installations for multiple chances to earn top prizes, including Lochinvar’s “Nashville Experience.”
Lochinvar’s VIP Contractor program allows approved VIPs to log on to the streamlined website. In addition to a short form for applying contractors to complete, the site offers the time-saving ability to scan eligible barcodes directly from the product nameplate with a smartphone or tablet. The registration process can be completed on the job site or saved to complete at a later time.
New this year, the Noble Fire Tube Combi Boiler joins the ranks as an eligible product as part of a new tiered reward system. Other eligible products include high-efficiency Knight, CADET, Solution residential heating boilers and Squire Indirect Water Heater. Contractors can earn unlimited rewards all year long for registering eligible products. There will be three reward tiers:
• Each registered Knight will earn a $25 Visa Prepaid Card;
• Each registered Noble, CADET or Solution boiler will receive a $15 Visa Prepaid Card;
• Each registered Squire Indirect Water Heater will be rewarded a $10 Visa Prepaid Card.
From October 1, through April 30, 2018, participating contractors will have the opportunity to show off their best work in the Installation Showcase for a chance to win big. Approved VIPs can upload photos or video of any high-efficiency KNIGHT, Noble, CADET, Solution residential heating boiler or Squire Indirect Water Heater installation to the Showcase found on Lochinvar’s Facebook page. An upgraded submission form makes entering the showcase easier than ever and allows up to five photos to be submitted per entry. Contractors will have new opportunities to win the Nashville Experience:
Seven monthly first-place winners will be selected from the VIP Installation Showcase;
Seven monthly top performing winners who register the most eligible products each month will be selected;
• One overall “top performer” will be chosen from the VIP Contractors who register the most Lochinvar residential boilers and indirect water heaters during the contest;
• One overall “Loyalty” winner will be selected from the VIP Contractors who consistently register the most eligible products each month.
The winning 16 VIP Contractors and their guests will enjoy four days in Music City in June 2018 during the largest country music festival in the world. The group will also visit Lochinvar headquarters in nearby Lebanon, Tenn., for a roundtable discussion with top engineering and executive staff and facility tour. First-place winners and their guests will receive airfare and lodging in Nashville from June 7-10, 2018, second place will receive a $250 Visa Prepaid Card and third place will receive a $100 Visa Prepaid Card.
Additionally, each month, a randomly selected VIP Contractor who registers an eligible product and has taken at least one online LochinvarU course will receive a KNIGHT Parts Toolkit. These toolkits have a variety of model-specific parts enclosed in a durable case to make routine service calls easier for VIPs.
“It is always exciting to kick-off a new year of the VIP Contractor Program,” said Amanda McAfee, marketing representative. “The VIP Contractor Program allows us to see the hard work and pride VIPs take installing our products. We look forward to meeting the winners in June and seeing them enjoy their reward.”
