Welcome to the magical quiet cooling system that is the
Powerful and energy efficient, the Ghost circulates up to
of air for pennies a day.
The Ghost provides a different type of cooling than you get
from an air conditioning unit. When the air outside is cooler than inside, you
simply open windows and turn on the Ghost. It then pushes out hot, stuffy,
stale air and replaces it with cool outside air. Your entire home is refreshed
and your family is more comfortable.
Air conditioning, on the other hand, will cool you off but
also will continuously re-circulate stale – sometimes unhealthy – air. At a
steep cost. Even running the Ghost
continuously, you could save up to 90% of that portion of
your energy bill eaten up by
Why is it called ‘The Ghost?’
One knock on older whole house fans was loud noise and
vibration. When we started
drawing up attributes that we wanted for this powerful whole
house fan, first on the list was ‘whisper quiet.’ As someone on the development
team said: ‘Like a ghost.’ After some debate, another team member added: ‘I get
chills when I think about the possibility of a ghost in my attic.’ Cool, quiet,
invisible but still there. Thus, a product name was born.
But we wanted more than just quiet and cool for this premier
modern day fan and we knew our customers would as well. ‘Energy efficient’ was
next on the list. Check. ‘Easy to install.’ Check. ‘Maintenance-free.’ Another
check. Then we asked ourselves if there were any negatives to existing whole house
fans that the Ghost could be designed to overcome and there were a couple. So
we added mechanically sealed, insulated doors to keep cold out in the winter
and heat out in the summer when the unit was not being used. For ease of use,
we added a remote control unit. Because it was – and continues to be --
important to our customers, we added an aesthetically pleasing ceiling grille
and a six-foot power cord to complete the Ghost package.
‘Ghost’ turned out to be the perfect name for our premier
whole house fan. It’s whisper quiet compared to old fashion fans, sits in the
attic and is always ready to send chills your way. For pennies a day.
