Who Make White Westinghouse Ceiling Fans?

He was a skilled Engineer and is known for introducing the transformer and promoted the use of AC current.

So what has happened to Westinghouse today? Well in 2018 Westinghouse Electric Company was acquired by partners from Toshiba and Brookfield Business Partners after having filed bankruptcy in 2017.

The exterior style of ceiling fans are specifically designed and made to stand up against the relentless weather elements that pound your patio, porch, or pool and bbq area without rusting or sacrificing overall function and performance.

How To Install The Westinghouse Contractors Choice Ceiling Fan

In this section, we discuss the Westinghouse Contractors Choice Ceiling Fan installation instructions.

Most of the Westinghouse ceiling fans come with the quick and simple Instaloc system.

What was once a challenging job is now easy with the Instaloc system. The fan can be assembled and operating within minutes with no prior experience.

It has a simplified design and some factory preassembly to make it so easy to assemble and install.

Most ceiling fans have 50 or 60 parts whereas the Instaloc fan has only fifteen parts including the light kit and glass shades.

The hanging bracket makes hanging the fan easy and also simplifies the wiring process.

As with any electrical work you will need to disconnect the power before beginning.

Remove the old fixture and disconnect the wiring, making sure that the fixture box can handle upto 35lbs of weight.

Connect the wires in the ceiling to the corresponding terminals on the mounting bracket.

Once all of the connections have been made set the mounting bracket into position and screw it into the ceiling.

Carefully lift the ceiling fan onto the mounting bracket and rotate the fan until it locks in place.

With the bracket holding the ceiling fan attach the male and female adapters from the fan to those leading from the terminal block.

Raise the canopy bracket up and align the holes with those on the mounting bracket and secure with the screws.

With the Instaloc system you simply insert each blade into the slot on the ceiling fan and turn the flywheel until all five blades are locked into place. This only takes 30 seconds rather than the typical 30 minutes with most other ceiling fan blade installs.

The last step is to attach the light shades for the light kit. The shades simply twist on. Screw in your lightbulbs and you are ready to go.

The installation and assembly process only takes a few minutes and will give your home decor look a beautiful lift enhancing the beauty of your room.

All of these steps can be seen in the video below.

Review of the Westinghouse Contractors Choice 52 in Ceiling Fan

Unfortunately the Westinghouse Contractors Choice Fan does not come with the Instaloc system. However it is still pretty straightforward to install.

I have pretty much assembled and installed several hundred ceiling fans, and the Westinghouse Contractors Choice fan was fairly typical of the effort required to install.

What I liked is the quality of the assembled ceiling fan was pretty much flawless.

There were pleasantly no issues, no exterior or interior damage, and the fan worked fine.

It came complete with all the parts and screws required for the install, even some wire nuts and a few different screws for making it easier to mount to the electrical-box.

What I really appreciated was that it did not require the blades to be balanced, even though it did come with the balancing kit.

My final prognosis is that I will be ordering more in the near future.

We took a look at customer reviews and of the 13 customers who left a review they gave a total overall score of 4.7 stars out of 5 stars and 100% said they would recommend this fan.
