Product Review

Offering a refined, contemporary style, the two-light, two-blade indoor ceiling fan has a look that balances well with almost any decor. It features a brushed nickel finish, integrated opal frosted glass light fixture, and two paddle-shaped weathered maple plywood blades. This fan features a whisper-quiet motor with a four-speed reversible switch that allows for customizing air movement. It also can also be used with an optional remote control (sold separately). The fan provides airflow at up to 4,881 cubic feet per minute (cfm) at its highest speed. It is rated to operate at 53 watts at high speed (without the lighting on), which gives it an airflow efficiency rating of 92 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 144 square feet (12 by 12 feet), the Westinghouse Harmony utilizes a 153-by-20-millimeter silicon steel motor with triple capacitor for powerful, quiet air circulation. The Harmony’s lighting comes from two candelabra-base, globe-style, 40-watt bulbs (included). The plywood blades have a weathered maple finish and a 13-degree pitch.

  • 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.

Customer Reviews

This was my first ceiling fan purchase and install. I knew I had wanted this fan for my house for the last year or more. I have been comparing this one (which is the Home Depot version) to the Allen Roth Santa Ana (the Lowes version). Both look almost identical with the two fan blades except for a few differences which I will point out to help other buyers make a decision on what they are looking for… 1. This fan (the Harmony) has 2 connection points per blade compared to 1 on the Santa Ana. Not sure if this makes any difference but the overall sturdiness and build quality of the Harmony seems very good and the motor is very quiet. Some reviews state there are some quality issues with the Santa Ana 2. The Harmony uses pull chains to turn on and off the light and adjust the speeds of the fan compared to a wireless remote on the Santa Ana. I wanted the pull chains since I was wiring this up to wall switches to control the on/off operation of the fan and light. I have read in other reviews of the Santa Ana that if power is cut to the fan by a switch, the remote will have to be re-programmed again to control the fan. 3. The biggest difference that made me go with this fan, the Harmony, is the fact that it uses standard Candelabra based bulbs. I wanted to run cfl or led bulbs to cut down on heat and energy consumption. The Santa Ana uses a special 100 watt halogen bulb that can only be replaced by the same thing. This will give off substantially more heat and use more energy. I also read reviews that this halogen bulb doesn’t last very long. The only benefit it has is a dimmable function on the remote. I could add a wall switch dimmer and run dimmable cfl’s or led bulbs if I want the same effect though. The only other decider I could think for someone else to go with the Santa Ana over the Harmony is if they were installing the fan in a high ceiling location where the control chains could not be reached and the power source was constant with no wall switches. But even then, Westinghouse makes a wireless controller that is compatible with this fan and with a combined price close to the Santa Ana at Lowes. One other thing to point out, this fan is listed having 3 speeds when in fact is does have 4 speeds just like the Santa Ana. I hope this comparison will help those looking for these fans Update…I am running 2, 13 watt daylight candelabra based cfl’s in this fan and it is very nice and bright in the room. The stock 40 watt standard bulbs are dull and dim.     I found these fans to be simple, efficient and a needed update to the decor in an old house I remodeled — I bought 3 of them! They seemed very easy to install for my handyman but I suggest you have someone who knows what they are doing perform the work if you don’t want to risk a shock or a wobbly installation doing it yourself. As others have noted, the design of the single set of twin blades provides more than ample air flow (I was actually a bit surprised by this as I was expecting disappointment when I first took them out of the box). I also replaced all of the included bulbs with higher wattage bulbs for better room coverage. The pull strings for the fan speed and light have an illustrated metal token at the end of the chain which makes them easy to tell apart. I believe you can get an optional remote for these but I wouldn’t be lazy enough to have much use for it.
