Interested in a Westinghouse fan? The Westinghouse brand is responsible for producing a wide variety of products, they are particularly known for their lighting fixtures, but they also have a nice line of ceiling fans.
Westinghouse is a trusted name in the industry as they have been around for over 120 years, they guarantee the construction of their fans and offer limited as well as lifetime warranties on them.
Now before you go out and get just any old Westinghouse fan, it’s important to know what kind of fan you should get based on the room you’re looking to put it in. Generally, here’s the guide you’re going to be following:
1. Rooms that are 8’x10’ – Get a ceiling fan that is 30” to 42”
2. Rooms that are 12’x12’ – Get a 42” to 48” ceiling fan
3. Rooms that are 18’x20’, or more – Get a 50” or larger fan
Now most of the time you’ll be somewhere in the middle, but it is important to measure your rooms just to make sure you’re getting the right sized fan. The last thing you want is to buy a fan, install it then find out after the fact that it is too small or too large.
Now as far as what Westinghouse fan you should get, here’s a quick look at some of the better fans out there for you to choose from:
Westinghouse 7813665 Comet One Light 52 Inch 5 Blade Ceiling Fan
Here’s a brushed pewter Westinghouse fan with an opal globe light fixture in the center of it. The base is chrome and the blades are an off white kind of color while the light fixture is white. It’s hard to describe except to say that it has a contemporary design. This fan is compatible with a dimmer and when installed with light wood color blades, this really looks fantastic.
Even if you don’t do that, it looks great, although it can hum and vibrate a bit when in “flush mode” which would be the only gripe. This will cost you about $75.
Westinghouse 7861500 Contempra Trio 3 Light 42 Inch 5 Blade Ceiling Fan
Complete with 3 frosted white bell shaped light fixtures, mounted underneath a nickel base with 5 deep cherry wooden fan blades, this fan oozes style. It’s a unique look which will defiantly attract attention.
One thing to note about this Westinghouse fan is that this thing does not take standard light bulbs, but rather candelabra sized bulbs, so don’t purchase this if that is an issue for you, the fans do not come with standard bulbs. One thing about it though is it is a bit noisy, it hums, but again, this is a beauty and at only $50 or so, it’s a steal.
