Product Review

The classic, one-light, six-blade indoor ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a white finish, integrated opal mushroom glass light fixture, and six MDF white/white wash blades. This fan features a three-speed reversible switch that allows for summer/winter operation.

The fan provides airflow at up to 3,925 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is rated to operate at 45 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 87 cfm per watt. (As a comparison, 36-inch to 48-inch ceiling fans have airflow efficiency ranging from approximately 71 to 86 cfm per watt at high speed.

Designed for rooms up to 80 square feet (roughly 10 by 8 feet), the Petite utilizes a 153 by 9 millimeter cold rolled steel motor with dual capacitor for air circulation. The Westinghouse Petite lighting comes from one Candelabra Base, G16 1/2 Lamp, 60 Watt maximum (not included). The MDF blades have a white finish and a 18-degree pitch.

Tips

  • Ceiling fans can save you money in winter (Reverse Blade Direction) as well as summer: up to 10 percent in heating costs and up to 40 percent in air conditioning costs.
  • Placement is important. Install the ceiling fan with the blades 10 to 12 inches below the ceiling and 7 to 9 feet above the floor.

This Westinghouse fan is backed by a lifetime motor warranty and a two-year warranty on all other parts.
