NuTone® Haven™ combines lighting and mosquito repellency in one convenient system
Broan-NuTone LLC introduces a revolutionary mosquito-repelling solution to improve outdoor living. For many families, the outdoor living area is the favorite “room” in the house. Now considered extensions of the rest of the home, decks, patios, and backyards exist as living and entertaining spaces, complete with furniture, décor, and even kitchens to help home owners enjoy their time outdoors, particularly in the summer months.
Despite the increase in outdoor living conveniences and solutions, a common problem remains. Home owners say mosquitoes prevent them from using their outdoor living spaces to the fullest, especially given heightened concerns over mosquito-borne diseases. But now, home owners can spend more time outdoors without the nuisance of biting mosquitoes thanks to the NuTone® Haven™ Mosquito Repellent System.
This product eliminates the need for sprays, messy traps, fuels, candles and torches by providing effective, convenient, season-long mosquito protection in one system. With the flip of a switch or the automatic optimal time/control, the Haven system silently delivers an odorless, invisible vapor to repel mosquitoes.
“Home owners put a great deal of time and effort into making their backyards enjoyable and relaxing places to spend time,” says Julie Stange, Global Category Manager. “So, it’s no surprise that they will also go to great lengths to protect themselves against mosquitoes. With the NuTone Haven Mosquito Repellent System, we offer what no one else can: a season-long, effective solution against biting mosquitoes.”
The system’s patented mosquito protection technology is powered by low-voltage electricity. Each Haven fixture contains a mosquito repellent cartridge. When the system is turned on, low-voltage electricity heats the cartridge, which then produces mosquito repellent vapor.
An attractive upgrade
The NuTone Haven Mosquito Repellent System can be offered as an upgrade to a builder’s outdoor living package, or as a practical add-on that enhances outdoor comfort and convenience. Home owners spend tens of thousands of dollars on their outdoor living space, often only to be chased back inside by mosquitoes
Each fixture repels mosquitoes within a 110-square-foot area, and four fixtures provide enough coverage for the average deck or patio. Most importantly? Haven works. In product testing, the Haven system proved 90 percent effective at repelling biting mosquitoes, including the mosquito known to carry the Zika virus. That makes it significantly more likely that buyers will enjoy every square inch of their new home.
Haven fixtures are available in two options: the light and repellent fixtures feature LED landscape lighting for added ambience to outdoor spaces, while the standard repellent fixtures provide the same high-quality protection for areas where lighting is not needed or already in place. Black and bronze finishes and deck-mounting flanges allow home owners to further customize the system to fit their own needs and unique aesthetics.
In addition, an optional timer/control allows programming of two circuits (repellent and lighting) for automatic operation triggered by time of day or by solar sensor, furthering the system’s ease of use.
The system installs like commonly used low-voltage lighting or an invisible fence, and takes about two to four hours from start to finish. Installation requires a customized number of Haven fixtures, based on the size of the protected area, a low-voltage transformer, low-voltage wire and dialectic grease.
Each Haven fixture ships complete with a detailed installation guide; NuTone also offers a complete installation video. A knowledgeable, award-winning technical support team is available at 1-888-336-6151. For additional selling tools and resources, contact Julie Stange, Global Category Manager.
