F.W. Webb Becomes Full-Line Distributor of Lochinvar – the Industry’s Most Comprehensive, High Efficiency Boiler and Water Heater Line

Bedford, MA

Now the largest full-line distributor of Lochinvar in the Northeast, the F.W. Webb Company is offering high-performing boilers, water heaters, and other products from the preeminent U.S. manufacturer. Lochinvar makes the most extensive line of boilers, water heaters, pool heaters, storage tanks, controls, packaged systems, and accessories in the industry.

Known for exceptional quality and energy efficiency, the award-winning Lochinvar boiler and water heater line provides solutions for virtually any conceivable project need. The Lochinvar line includes fire-tube boilers from 55,000–6 million BTUs, as well as water heaters and pool heaters from 45,000–6 million BTUs. No other manufacturer offers such a wide range of stainless steel and copper tube products designed for reliability, efficiency and application effectiveness.

"Lochinvar products are well-engineered and meet the rigorous standards we require on behalf of our customers," said Gregg Leighton, Director of Trade Sales at F.W. Webb. "Residential and commercial contractors not only will be confident with the quality of Lochinvar products, they’ll also find local support before, during and after installation in every area served by F.W. Webb."

"Lochinvar is proud to partner with the professionals at F.W. Webb and welcome the company as a stocking distributor in the Northeast," said John Danek, Lochinvar Regional Sales Manager for the Northeast. "We are excited about teaming up with F.W. Webb to provide their customers Lochinvar products and expertise for all facets of residential, commercial and industrial applications."

Among their many features and benefits, Lochinvar products are easy to install. The line is consistent from product to product, including common parts, venting and Lochinvar Smart System™ controls – no matter the application. Commercial boilers have onboard controls designed to "communicate" to one another without the addition of complicated third-party controls. The Lochinvar Smart System creates a singular control platform, designed to make set-up and operation easy – and in plain English.

"Contractors find it easy to work with Lochinvar products," said Michael DelConte, Heating Products Sales Manager at F.W. Webb. "Since the controls interface is user-friendly and consistent across models, once you learn to install one Lochinvar boiler, you’ve learned how to install almost every model. Plus, they’re extremely reliable and straightforward to service."

With its reputation for excellence, Lochinvar is a sought-after brand, spec’d commercially up to 80% of the time. Lochinvar continually employs the most innovative technology to rigorously design all its products for maximum efficiency. AFUE ratings of 95-98% are the norm for most Lochinvar products. Residential boilers (400K BTUs and under) offer a five-year components warranty directly through Lochinvar with no cumbersome paperwork. The company continuously strives for total customer satisfaction.

  • Knight Boilers for Residential Customers
