Summer is a great time for backyard barbecues, relaxing on your patio or deck, enjoying your favorite beverage at twilight.

But those relaxing summer nights can quickly become a nightmare because of those biting mosquitoes.

Before Haven, Chelsea’s deck was not a pleasant place to be, even when we used candles and every kind of bug spray imaginable.

Combining outdoor lighting and season-long mosquito repellents in one effective, convenient system, NuTone’s Haven backyard lighting and mosquito repellent is the first of its kind. You can enjoy your time outdoors with fewer biting mosquitoes — something especially important given heightened concerns over mosquito-borne diseases.

NuTone Haven stylish fixtures include a mosquito-repelling system that works without oils, zaps or smelly sprays. Inside each fixture, a repellent cartridge and vaporizer work together to produce an invisible odorless mosquito repellent, protecting your outdoor space.

Each fixture repels mosquitoes for 110 square feet and just four fixtures can easily protect an average-size patio or deck. The repellent cartridges start repelling within 15 minutes once activated. A handy green indicator light lets you know when the system is on and it flashes when it’s time to change the repellent cartridge.

Don’t worry, the cartridge lasts all season long and changing it is very quick and easy. NuTone Haven fixtures can be added to almost any existing low-voltage system. They’re designed to enhance any outdoor living space. Just stake them in the ground or post them to a deck or patio railing.

An optional timer and controller allow you to turn on just the lights, just the repellent or both. You can activate the sensor on the controller to set the lights and repellent to automatically come on at dusk or set each system to activate at a time that’s convenient for you.

Easily match to any outdoor home decor; the durable cast aluminum fixtures come in powder coated black or bronze finish. The LED lights last up to 30,000 hours and use less power than typical landscape lighting systems.

If you already have landscape lighting, you can use Haven repellent-only fixtures to protect your backyard.

NuTone’s Haven light and mosquito repellent fixtures make your backyard a more enjoyable and relaxing space to spend time — making any yard a haven to you.
