The Lochinvar VIP Contractor Program, now in its seventh year, offers participating contractors greater rewards than ever before. The 2011-2012 program features an all-new monthly sweepstakes that allows for double the number of grand-prize winners.

With each registered purchase of any of these products - the KNIGHT residential heating boiler, the Efficiency+ and Solution residential boiler lines, the KNIGHT XL commercial boiler and the Squire indirect water heater - VIP contractors earn points that can be redeemed online from an extensive catalog of prizes. While contractors can mail in the registration card that accompanies each unit, online registration is encouraged and earns an additional 20 percent bonus points.

In addition to accruing points, VIP contractors are entered into a monthly sweepstakes with each registration. Each month throughout the program, one participant will be randomly selected to win a spot on one of two three-day trips to Nashville, Tenn.

On top of the sweepstakes, contractors have the opportunity to compete on a monthly basis by showcasing their installations After the projects are reviewed by a panel of Lochinvar judges, one contractor each month is awarded a $250 gift card of their choice. The contractor who is named the overall winner of the Installation Showcase joins the 12 sweepstakes winners in Nashville, along with the seven top-performing VIPs who register the most purchases of qualified products.

The 20 contractors who win the grand-prize trip, along with their guests, will be treated to a three-day, all-expenses-paid trip to Nashville, which includes a stay at the legendary Opryland Resort, a dinner cruise on the General Jackson Showboat, a night of entertainment at the Grand Ole Opry, a tour of the Jack Daniels Distillery and a visit to Lochinvar headquarters for a roundtable discussion.
