Enjoy the Outdoors More with the NuTone® Haven™ Backyard Mosquito Repellent System

The innovative new product is the first of its kind, combining outdoor lighting and mosquito repellency all season long in one effective, convenient system.

Hartford, Wis. - 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 homeowners enjoy their time outdoors, particularly in the summer months.

Despite the increase in outdoor living conveniences and solutions, a common problem remains. Homeowners say pesky mosquitoes ultimately prevent them from using their outdoor living spaces to the fullest, especially given heightened concerns over mosquito-borne diseases*. But now, homeowners can spend even more time outdoors without the nuisance of biting mosquitoes thanks to the NuTone® Haven Mosquito Repellent System.

As a leader in home comfort and convenience solutions, NuTone adds to its innovative product line with 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 complete system. With the flip of a switch or the automatic optimal time/control, the Haven system delivers an odorless, silent and invisible vapor to repel mosquitoes.

“Homeowners put a great deal of time and effort into making their backyards enjoyable and relaxing places to spend time. So, it’s no surprise that they will also go to great lengths to protect themselves against annoyances like mosquitoes,” said Julie Stange, Global Category Manager. “With the NuTone Haven Mosquito Repellent System, we offer what no one else can: a season-long, effective solution against biting mosquitoes.”

The NuTone Haven Backyard Mosquito Repellent 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 an odorless, invisible and silent mosquito repellent vapor. 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% effective at repelling biting mosquitoes, including the Aedes aegypti mosquito, known to carry the Zika virus. That’s key for Florida resident Don Roberts.

“We enjoy the outdoor space, but mosquitos are a big deterrent. The Haven system is so convenient and easy to use that it makes it effortless for me to be able to enjoy my backyard and everything it has to offer,” said Florida homeowner Don Roberts. “You can just set the system on a timer if you know you are having friends over in a few hours. But in addition to the timer, we can just flip the switch whenever we want to go out there, too.”

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 homeowners 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.
