What is HVAC Scenting? | Villa Diffuser

    Ensure a consistent, even distribution of fine fragrance that will make guests feel like they just stepped foot in the lobby of a luxurious hotel.

    What is a HVAC system? 

    Our elite Villa Diffuser is HVAC-compatible, meaning it connects to home heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems. These systems control the overall atmosphere in your home from humidity and temperature, to purity of the air. The Villa is our largest whole-home air freshener system, ideal for scenting large spaces or multiple areas throughout a home.

    How do Hotel Collection Villa Diffusers scent using HVAC systems?

    Cold-air diffusion technology is a simple and ultra-quiet way to scent a space. Using air pressure to deliver nanoparticles of broken down fragrance oil throughout your home's HVAC ducts, the Villa is a direct approach to whole home scenting, with little to no maintenance. This type of advanced atomization technology is residue-free and safe for pets, children, artwork, and furniture.

    How does the Villa Diffuser connect to HVAC systems?

    Please read the complete Villa Scent Diffuser instructions in order to connect your diffuser, set up scenting operating periods, and begin scenting. The Villa offers up to 5 operating periods and has scenting intervals programmable to the second.

    For stand alone use, please follow along with our Youtube Instructions Video.

    Where are HVACs located in the home?

    HVAC systems are usually found in a utility closet, garage, attic, basement, or crawlspace. Some HVAC systems are even located outside of the home or on the roof.

    Local HVAC systems can also be placed inside individual living spaces to serve rooms more directly. These systems consist of local heating, air-conditioning, ventilation, and split systems. 

    What HVAC system does my home have?

    There are many different sizes and types of HVAC systems. To determine the type of HVAC system your home has, try looking at the installed unit for a model number. You can also contact a heating and air service specialist.

    How do I connect my Villa and HVAC system? 

    It is best to follow our complete instructions when setting up your Villa Diffuser. If you prefer, you can hire a specialist to install the system for you. For further assistance, please email us at


    Will the oil damage my A/C unit? 

    Our diffusers are residue free. All of our Fragrance Oil Blends are designed to work specifically with our state of the art, cold air diffusion technology, which breaks down oils into nanoparticles that are released through the ventilation system as a cool, dry mist. 

    Does the HVAC systems only work with cold air? 

    No. The Villa Scent Diffuser can also be used with the fan or heat settings in the central air conditioning system. Please note that warm air will give you a slightly stronger fragrance.

    Do I need to have my AC running at all times? 

    In order for the system to work the fan must be on. During cool weather, turn the fan of your central air conditioner to the ON position (as opposed to AUTO) to ensure the fragrance continues to circulate throughout your home. 

    What square footage would it cover? 

    The Villa Scent Diffuser covers up to 1,800 square feet!

    How often will it require maintenance? 

    The only maintenance is to change your oil bottle when empty. If you choose to change your settings afterwards, the units are extremely easy to reprogram.
